Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corporation Will Present At John Tumazos Very Independent Research

Update to Appia Shareholders.

Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited (WGM) has completed an updated NI 43-101 report entitled, “A Technical Review of the Appia Energy Corp. Uranium Properties, Elliot Lake District, North Central Ontario, Canada”, dated 19 November, 2009. This report contains an updated NI 43-101 uranium resource as follows:

  S.G.Average GradeContained
ZoneClassification         Tons(tons/m3)(lbs. U308/ton)(lbs. U308)
Banana LakeInferred                 Resources3.140.912
Teasdale LakeIndicated               Resources3.141.10
 Inferred                 Resources3.141.10

WGM recommends a $15 million staged exploration program on the Teasdale Lake Zone, Banana Lake Zone, Canuc, Bouck and Buckles Zones.

The property contains a historical resource of 215,985,000 tons in the Banana Lake, Canuc, Bouck and Buckles Zones grading 0.72 lbs. U308/ton containing  lbs. ofU308. The Banana Lake resources estimated by WGM are part of this total. The foregoing historical resources are viewed as reliable and relevant based on the information and methods used at the time, however they do not satisfy the present classification requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101 Neither Appia, nor its Qualified Persons, have done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and are not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The historical resource should not be relied upon.

Appia also recently received a technical drilling and geological evaluation report on the Banana Lake Area, by Alan D. MacEachern, B.Sc., Consulting Geologist. Mr.

MacEachern, formerly Chief Geologist, Denison Mines Ltd., Elliot Lake, Ontario, has 39 years of experience with all aspects of Elliot Lake geology.

Mr. MacEachern concluded that the results of the recent drilling in the Banana Lake Area has increased both the known grade and thickness of the zone and he recommends extending drilling to the northwest. This area has a high probability of adding 150-300 million tons of potentially higher grade ore. Appia intends to drill test this area.

Shareholders are encouraged to visit Appia’s website ( and review these two reports (password for both reports is appia2010).

Appia is very excited with the results from both of these reports, especially with the possibility of combining the very large uranium resource with the higher grade potential of the Banana Lake Zone.

Any positive outcome could have tremendous upside implication for Appia and its valuation.

Appia’s management believes that the foregoing results present a unique opportunity for Appia to investigate proceeding with going public, subject to market conditions and a favourable valuation during 2010.

Appia’s management would have preferred more favourable uranium market conditions under which to curry its going public transaction, but since there is no way of telling how long the present market conditions will persist, management has decided to explore its options and is meeting with brokers and other interested parties to assess the level of interest and decide as to the best course of action with which to proceed.

Appia’s management is making every effort to ensure Shareholders are informed of the process and the progress and we appreciate and encourage suggestions and feedback from the shareholders.

Independent Consulting Geologist, Al Workman, P. Geo., Vice President, Watts, Griffis and McOuat Ltd., supervised the resource estimation and is the qualified person under NI 43-101 who has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release.
