JNR Announces Completion of Airborne Gravity Survey on the Crackingstone Project08:00 EDT Thursday, September 23, 2010TSXV: JNNEmail: info@jnrresources.comWebsite: www.jnrresources.comSASKATOON, Sept. 23 /CNW/ - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV: JNN) (the 'Company') has completed an airborne gravity gradient survey flown over its 100% owned Crackingstone property. The 10,665-hectare property, comprising four mineral claims, is located near Uranium City in northern Saskatchewan, adjacent to the north rim of the Athabasca Basin.Previous work on the Crackingstone property was carried out in the 1950's and 1960's, largely on the two southern claims that cover the Crackingstone Peninsula. During that time period the Gulch deposit and approximately 12 uranium showings were discovered and numerous pitchblende-bearing zones were identified underground.The ~600 line-kilometre airborne 3-D full tensor gravity gradient survey was flown over the entire Crackingstone property in the early fall of 2010. The newly acquired data are being processed and incorporated with prior ground and/or airborne geophysical surveys to better define and upgrade existing targets for drill testing. With this latest survey completed, the project is at a stage where the results can be leveraged into drilling success.JNR Resources is a junior exploration company primarily focused on uranium exploration and development in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. The company has a varied interest in several prospective uranium properties in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan that have been and will continue to be the focal point of JNR's exploration efforts.JNR's Director of Exploration, Dr. Irvine R.
