Announces the Immediate Commencement of the Phase Two Drill Program on Whiskey Gap Uranium Project February 22, 2006: North American Gem (NAG- TSX.V) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Phase Two Drill program consisting of 40 holes has commenced. This program has been designed to follow up on significant results that were encountered during drilling on the Whiskey Gap Uranium Project in late 2005. All samples will be sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) for assay. The Phase 1 Drill Program of 1200 meters was completed, to evaluate anomalous Radon gas values in ground water, which exceeded 5000 picocuries per liter. Anomalous radioactivity, up to a maximum thickness of 5 meters, was encountered in seven drill holes over a wide area within carbonaceous mudstones, in association with a thick sandstone channel sequence. Assay results from the SRC indicate that the radioactive zones are enriched with Uranium. The source of the Radon anomaly was not located, however a substantial enrichment of heavy metals is present, this heavy metal enrichment halo is typical of sandstone uranium deposits. The radioactive zones also contain significant, copper, arsenic, molybdenum, vanadium and barium. These pathfinder elements typically occur in association with sandstone uranium deposits in Wyoming and Colorado. International Ranger Corp. is extremely encouraged by these preliminary results, and is confident that further work in the area will define significant sandstone hosted Uranium mineralization. The Whiskey Gap property is underlain by a series of fluvial sandstones of Cretaceous age, thought to be analogous to sandstones in parts of Wyoming that host significant Roll front Uranium deposits. The project is under the direction of Glenn .S. Hartley P. Geol. in accordance with the regulations of National Instrument 43-101, and the contents of this news release have been reviewed by Glenn .S. Hartley.
