JNR Completes Airborne Gravity Survey on the Newnham Lake Property16:01 EST Wednesday, March 09, 2011TSXV:JNNEmail:  info@jnrresources.comWebsite:  www.jnrresources.comSASKATOON, March 9 /CNW/ - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV: JNN) (the 'Company') as operator, has completed a 1,379 line-km airborne gravity gradient survey over its 100% owned Newnham Lake project (8 claims, 27,723 ha). The results of this survey have been processed and now are being interpreted and integrated with previous ground and airborne geophysical programs to further define drill targets.Preliminary results of the aircraft-borne, full tensor 3D gravity gradient survey clearly show that this program was successful in better defining the structural setting of the property. Several 'zones of interest' outlined within the Newnham Lake claims lie along extensive corridors of well-defined, structurally-disrupted basement conductors. The corridors are typically several km in strike length. This property is now at a drill-ready stage with numerous high-priority targets identified.The Newnham Lake project straddles the northern margin of the Athabasca Basin and lies directly along the Cable Bay Shear zone. This is a major transcrustal structural feature, which exhibits many of the positive geochemical and geological attributes required for the formation of significant uranium deposits. Although the property has been drill-tested historically, many high-priority targets remain. These better defined targets are anticipated to be the focus of future drilling programs.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 Exploration, Dr. Irvine R.
