JNR/Altius Identify Additional Copper Mineralization and Stake New Claims on Topsails Project, Newfoundland08:00 EDT Monday, October 25, 2010TSXV:JNNEmail:  info@jnrresources.comWebsite:  www.jnrresources.comSASKATOON, SK, Oct. 25 /CNW/ - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV:JNN) (the 'Company')is pleased to provide the following update and results from the Topsails Uranium/Rare Earth Elements/Copper (U-REE-Cu) project in central Newfoundland.The Topsails project is a 50/50 alliance between the Company and Altius Resources Inc. (jointly the 'Companies') that was established to explore for volcanic-hosted uranium deposits in a defined area of west-central Newfoundland near the mining community of Buchans.The 2010 program, budgeted at approximately $500,000, was initiated in July. It comprised an extensive regional- to district-scale prospecting, mapping, ground geophysics, trenching, soil, till, and stream sediment geochemistry program which continued through this fall. The program focused on six significant areas (Koorae Cu-Mo-Au-Ag prospect, Railway U showing, Sheffield Lake South Cu prospect, Long Range Mountain U-REE prospects A and B, and Catcher's Pond Cuprospect)identified by the 2008 and 2009 programs that returned highly anomalous geochemistry (see JNR News Releases -November 30, 2009 and December 18, 2009 for details). The 2009 work also identified a number of additional targets within and adjacent to the project claims that require further work.Follow-up on one of these additional targets has resulted in the discovery of Cu mineralization within boulders and subcrop, with the subsequent staking of 124 new claims (3,100 hectares) to the west of the Koorae Cu-Mo-Au-Ag porphyry-style prospect. Forty grab samples have been analyzed with 25 of these returning Cu values over 1000 ppm and five of these returning Cu values of 1.07, 1.08, 1.48, 1.61 and 1.68 wt%. Twelve of the 40 grab samples also returned anomalous Au values between 12 and 285 ppb.Outcrop, subcrop, boulder, soil, till, and stream sediment samples from this summer's exploration program have been submitted to the Saskatchewan Research Council's Geo-Analytical Laboratory for multi-element analysis. Further results will be released as they become available.JNR is led by a highly experienced management team with proven discovery success in uranium exploration. In addition to its projects in Newfoundland, the Company has an interest in fourteen properties totalling some 340,197 hectares of highly prospective ground in the renowned Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan.JNR's Director of Exploration, Dr. Irvine R.
