PHOENIX, Nov. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Energy Fields, Inc. (OTCBB:AEFI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has increased its land position in the Date Creek Basin by leasing the North Anderson Uranium Project from the Arizona State Land Department. The lease is accompanied with an exploration permit which will allow the Company to begin its exploration plans to identify the acreage's uranium potential. The lease and exploration permit covers 640 acres of State land. 

The North Anderson resides in the Date Creek Basin where in 1979, the Department Of Energy (D.O.E) conducted an evaluation of the Date Creek Basin and the Artillery Mountains where they estimated that the area could contain as much as 1,260,000,000 lbs. of uranium. The area was the target of exploration efforts by Union 76 and Urangelselschaft in the 1970s. The Company has obtained data concerning the exploration efforts and will use it to evaluate the exploration possibilities in the region.

In order to fully evaluate the uranium potential of the North Anderson, the Company plans a reverse circulation (RC) drill program and accompanying down-hole radiometric geophysical probe program. The geologic and structural environment and previous identification of radioactive anomalies indicate that the area is favorable for uranium mineralization.

Company President and CEO, Joshua Bleak, stated, "The North Anderson is an exciting project for us as it adds to our acreage in the uranium rich Date Creek Basin. The Basin, which is also home to our Artillery Peak project where we have identified an inferred 2.8 million lbs. of uranium, is recognized as one of the most abundant uranium areas in the world. With strong indications of uranium existing and an exploration permit in hand, we are excited to further our program in an effort to identify and define a uranium resource."
