Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, May 23, 2008 – Titan Uranium Inc., (“Titan”) (TSX-V: TUE), a North American generative explorer focused on identifying high-value uranium exploration projects for joint venture with industry partners, is pleased to announce the signing of a Letter of Agreement with Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC). The Letter of Agreement supersedes the Letter of Intent between Titan and JOGMEC that was announced on February 11, 2008 (Titan PR February 11, 2008).

The Letter of Agreement confirms and summarizes the agreement governing the option whereby JOGMEC can acquire an undivided 50% working interest in Titan’s Virgin Trend Project by funding Cdn$ 9 million in exploration programs managed by Titan. The Letter of Agreement calls for annual funding of $3 million in each of the first three years. Vesting of a 50% working interest will be at JOGMEC’s election after funding a total of $9 million by the end of the third year of the agreement. Upon completion of the earn-in phase, JOGMEC and Titan will form a joint venture with each party holding a 50% participating interest in the Virgin Trend Project. Further, JOGMEC has the option to provide an additional $6 million to obtain the exclusive marketing rights of the mineral products of the joint venture for a 10-year period from first commercial production.

The Honourable Lyle Stewart, Saskatchewan Minister of Enterprise and Innovation, witnessed the formal signing ceremony which was held May 23 in Regina and attended by senior representatives from Titan Uranium, JOGMEC, Saskatchewan Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation and Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources. Mr. Stewart stated “The government fully supports collaboration between local and foreign investors to develop Saskatchewan’s abundant resources. Japan is a major trading partner with our province and we welcome this new investment in our uranium industry.”

JOGMEC is a prominent Japanese corporation, funded by Japan’s national and municipal governments as well as by private-sector corporations, with a global mandate to seek a stable supply of natural resources for Japan. JOGMEC reported assets of US$ 7.3 billion and ordinary revenues of +US$ 1 billion for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007. Contributions in kind to be provided by JOGMEC for the Virgin Trend Project include technical assistance utilizing a highly innovative and extraordinarily sensitive deep-penetrating electromagnetic geophysical system developed by JOGMEC. This technology has been successfully applied in other geological environments.
