Pathfinder to Conduct Major Airborne Survey on Thelon Basin Uranium Project

а Vancouver, BC, January 19, 2006; Pathfinder Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: PHR) and Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: DDN) announce that Pathfinder has entered into a contract with Fugro Airborne Surveys to conduct a comprehensive airborne geophysical survey over the Thelon Basin Uranium Project in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The survey will consist of a 6,000 line-kilometre, deep penetrating, electromagnetic (EM) survey, utilizing Fugro's proprietary MEGATEM II system. The objective of the survey is to identify conductive graphitic sediments that are spatially associated with geologic structures and uranium mineralization.

Fugro's MEGATEM II system is a deep penetrating, high-resolution electromagnetic and magnetic geophysical system capable of identifying conductors in basement rocks that can be overlain by thick sandstone basin infill. As basement conductors are often related to fault structures, the survey will focus on areas of the property where major structures have been recognized by government and Pathfinder geologists based on a recently released calculated vertical gradient magnetic map (see map at http://www.pathfinderresources.com/Projects/TMag.htm). Fault structures and basement conductors are key elements associated with world-class, high-grade, unconformity related uranium deposits such as Cameco Corporation's (TSX: CCO) McArthur River and Cigar Lake mines in the Athabasca Basin.

The MEGATEM II survey will cover the majority of the Thelon Uranium Project, a large area comprising over 1,000,000 acres. Developed in 2001, MEGATEM II is far superior to survey systems used during the last major uranium exploration boom in the 1970's as it can detect conductors considerably deeper in the earth and at much higher resolution. Conductors defined by the survey program will provide targets for follow-up ground exploration and drilling.

Given Pathfinder is exploring the largest property in the Thelon Basin, recognized as a highly prospective region for hosting high-grade, unconformity related uranium deposits, identification of conductors from the upcoming survey would add considerable value to the project and significantly enhance the Company's strategic position in the region. The survey is scheduled to commence in May 2006 and results should be available in June or July.

Pathfinder can earn an 80% interest in the uranium rights on approximately 1.2 million acres of Diamond North's Thelon exploration claims and permits. Pathfinder is the operator of the Project.
