Alberta Star Successfully Completes A High Resolution Radiometric Airborne Survey Over The Macinnis Lake Uranium Project
October 19th, 2007
Alberta Star Development Corp. (the “Company”) listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (ASX) and on the OTCBB (ASXSF), is pleased to report that the Company has successfully completed a High Resolution Aeromagnetic Gradiometer-Radiometric Survey on the MacInnis Lake uranium project in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Survey consisted of 2,093 line-kilometers at 100 meter line spacings and was flown by Fugro Airborne Surveys. The Company believes that the Survey will provide valuable information which will further enhance uranium exploration capabilities by clearly showing high definition conductive uranium targets at the MacInnis Lake Uranium Project, NT.
The company intends to combine results from the Survey with archived historical drill results to assist the Company in its exploration drill targets to be scheduled for the summer of 2008. Drilling will be subject to receiving the required regulatory permitting.
The MacInnis Lake uranium claim block consists of 26,184.64 acres located in the Nonacho Basin 150 km northeast of Fort Smith, Northwest Territories and 145 miles northwest of the Athabasca Basin situated in northern Saskatchewan.
The MacInnis Lake Uranium Project and claim-block is known to have widespread surface uranium mineralization, and contains 28 high grade uranium outcrops that were drilled extensively by Shell Oil, Uranerz and PNC Exploration between 1954 and 1988. All uranium exploration and drilling datasets have been archived and recorded by the Geological Survey of Canada and include;
- the DUSSAULT, which has a non-compliant drill indicated inferred resource of 37,000 tons grading 0.17% U308 (the occurrence appears to be open down dip and along strike) and values of 0.84% U308 intersected over 2 feet and high-grade samples were recovered up to 28% U308. -
the COLE, with numerous trench samples with U308 values reported as high as 3.16%, 5.13% and 20%; and
the KULT, which has a surface showing 300m x 500m wide with surface uranium and copper mineralization that returned grades up to 3.5% Copper and 3.3% U308.
The Company has recently completed all of the required assessment work and filings for the MacInnis Lake Uranium Project with the Mine Recorder’s office in Yellowknife, NT.
A Technical Report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 was previously completed on the MacInnis Lake Uranium Project and is accessible on SEDAR.

All statements in this release, other than statements of historical fact, that address future production, reserve potential, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects to occur, are forward looking statements. Forward looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects”, “plans” “anticipates”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “projects”, “potential” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will”, “would”, “may”, “could” or “should” occur. Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling results and information concerning mineral resource estimates may also be deemed to be forward looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a project is actually developed.
