PHOENIX, March 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Energy Fields, Inc. (OTCBB:AEFI) (the "Company") announces that it has completed the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of 75.67774% of the membership interests of Secure Energy LLC, a North Dakota limited liability company ("Secure Energy"). As previously announced, Secure Energy, which was then managed and majority owned by Prospect Uranium, Inc., owns uranium leases on approximately 1,026 acres of private property in southwestern North Dakota. Historical estimates indicate approximately 8 million pounds of U3O8 in a four square-mile area including and surrounding the uranium leases. Drill logs show uranium mineralized roll fronts in sandstone, with uranium mineralization occurring within 350 feet of the surface. Additional layers of sandstone exist at deeper intervals but have not been cored or logged. Based upon historical data, the Company has identified the potential for development using either open pit or ISR mining methods.
Secure Energy also owns a historical exploration database, which includes over 400 drill logs on and in the immediate vicinity of Secure Energy's North Dakota uranium leases. These exploration holes were drilled in the late 1970s. Prospect Uranium's exploration database also includes data from various mining companies on mineral properties in Colorado, Wyoming, Nevada, and New Mexico.
Commenting on the completion of the Acquisition, Joshua Bleak, President and CEO of American Energy Fields, said, "We are pleased to complete this Acquisition, which will strengthen our Company by providing us access to extensive data and by expanding our portfolio to include uranium exploration prospects in North Dakota's Williston Basin."
