SASKATOON, Feb. 2, 2012. As per PRNewswire:

Claude Resources Inc. (TSX: CRJ) (NYSE Amex: CGR) ("Claude") is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced transaction whereby Claude has acquired all of the outstanding shares of St. Eugene Mining Corporation Limited (TSXV: SEM) ("St. Eugene") (that Claude does not already own).  The transaction was accomplished pursuant to the terms of a court approved plan of arrangement completed under the Bu siness Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Arrangement"). Under the Arrangement, Claude acquired all of the outstanding common shares of St. Eugene in exchange for the issuance of approximately 9.6 million common shares of Claude ("Claude Shares").

In addition to Claude Shares, former shareholders of St. Eugene also received 0.25 of a common share of Satori Resources Inc. ("Satori").  Claude will maintain the same pro-rata stake in Satori that it had in St. Eugene.  Satori has received the necessary approvals for its common shares to commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange effective February 2, 2012 under the trading symbol "BUD".  Satori's primary asset will be a 100 percent interest in the Tartan Lake Mine Project, which is comprised of certain mineral property interests and related assets located in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt in Manitoba.

As part of the Arrangement, Claude also assumed all outstanding warrants of St. Eugene and reduced its existing net smelter return royalty on the Tartan Lake Mine Project from a sliding scale to 2 percent. The net smelter return royalty can also be repurchased at any time by Satori for $1 million for each one percent.

Claude now owns 100 percent of the Amisk Gold Project. At 23,450 hectares, this gold and silver exploration property is one of the largest land positions in the prolific Flin Flon mineral district. The Amisk Gold Property is located 20 kilometres southwest of Flin Flon, Manitoba and hosts the Amisk Gold Project, a bulk mineable gold and silver deposit. Currently the Amisk Gold Project hosts a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource calculation of 1.57 million gold equivalent ounces. In 2012, Claude will update the resource calculation, conduct a Preliminary Economic Assessment and further exploration programs on the property.

Claude Resources Inc. is a public company based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, whose shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: CRJ) and the NYSE Amex (NYSE Amex: CGR).
