JNR Announces Completion of Airborne Gravity Survey on the Snowbird-South Dufferin Projects08:00 EDT Monday, September 27, 2010TSXV:JNNEmail: info@jnrresources.comWebsite: www.jnrresources.comSASKATOON, SK, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV: JNN) (the 'Company') as operator, has completed an airborne gravity gradient survey over JNR's 100% owned Snowbird project (six claims, 25,192 ha) and the 34% owned South Dufferin joint venture (2 claims, 8,240 ha) with Denison Mines. The results of this survey are being processed and integrated with prior ground and airborne geophysical programs to further define drill targets.Preliminary results of the 875 line-km aircraft-borne full tensor 3D gravity gradient survey clearly show that this program was successful in better defining the structural setting of both properties. Several 'zones of interest' outlined within the Snowbird and South Dufferin claims lie along extensive corridors of well-defined, structurally-disrupted basement conductors. The corridors are typically 2 to 10 km in strike length. These properties are now at a drill-ready stage with numerous high-priority targets identified.The Snowbird and South Dufferin project areas are contiguous and straddle the southern edge of the Athabasca Basin directly along the Snowbird tectonic zone. This major transcrustal structural feature includes the southwest strike extension of the Virgin River shear, which hosts Cameco's Centennial Zone 20 to 25 km along strike to the north east. Neither the Snowbird nor South Dufferin properties have been drill tested previously by any company, including JNR.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.
