Denison Intersects High Grade Uranium at a New Target Area at Wheeler River

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- Denison Mines Corp. (TSX: DML)(NYSE MKT: DNN) ("Denison" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that high grade, basement hosted uranium mineralization averaging 9.7% eU3O8 over 4.6 metres has been intersected in drill hole WR-556 at the K North target area 3.0 kilometres northwest of the Phoenix deposit at Wheeler River. This new zone of mineralization has been named the Gryphon zone.

Gryphon Zone

Drill hole WR-556 targeted the down-dip extension of weak mineralization in two historic drill holes in the K North area. WR-556 intersected a basement wedge that has been faulted up into the sandstone, and then encountered a large interval of graphitic basement, within which is a zone of alteration and mineralization 140 metres down-dip of the old drill holes. From down-hole total gamma probe results, the high grade portion of the mineralization averages 9.7% eU3O8 over 4.6 meters, using a cut-off grade of 1% eU3O8. The high grade mineralization is flanked by lower grade mineralization on both sides, and the entire interval averages 3.7% eU3O8 over 12.6 metres, using a cut-off grade of 0.1% eU3O8. Figure 1 shows the location of WR-556 relative to the Phoenix deposit and other target areas at Wheeler River.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:

1.  eU3O8 is radiometric equivalent uranium from a total gamma down-hole
    probe
2.  Intersection interval is composited above a cut-off grade of 0.1% eU3O8
3.  Intersection interval is composited above a cut-off grade of 1.0% eU3O8

The mineralization at the Gryphon zone is approximately 200 metres beneath the sub-Athabasca unconformity and is open in both strike directions and down-dip. As WR-556 is a vertical drill hole and the mineralization is expected to dip moderately, the true thickness is approximately 70% of the intersection length.

The Wheeler River property lies between the McArthur River Mine and Key Lake mill complex in the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan. Denison is the operator and holds a 60% interest in the project. Cameco Corporation holds a 30% interest and JCU (Canada) Exploration Company, Limited holds the remaining 10% interest.
