NR 107 – Liberty Star Pays Rental Fees for North Pipes Super Project Claims

TUCSON, Ariz.–September 6, 2011–Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (The “Company”) (OTCBB: LBSR) is pleased to announce 2011/2012 rental-assessment work maintenance fees for the North Pipes Super Project (“NPSP”) for high-grade uranium have been paid to the US Bureau of Land Management.

The 431 Federal lode NPSP exploration stage project claims lay within the Arizona Strip breccia pipe mineral zone. The targets associated with these claims were the result of an intensive geochemical data collection campaign (14,000 samples for 64 elements – approximately 900 thousand analyses) in 2007 confirming that these claims are the best of the total initially staked.

Additionally, a six square mile test area was flown using the helicopter borne VTEM system provided by Geotech of Canada. This system can identify sulfides associated with uranium in breccia pipes at a depth of more than a thousand feet. Several targets were identified. The most promising, the Helvia target, approximately 1400 feet long and 1000 feet wide, or about 3x the average pipe size, was detected. It suggests the convergence of three large breccia pipe structures. It is drill ready.

Located on the Colorado Plateau province of northern Arizona known as the Arizona Strip, the North Pipes Super Project is targeted specifically for high-grade uranium mineralization through numerous breccia pipes. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the breccia pipes in this region are of high grade compared to sediment hosted roll front deposits mined throughout the western United States, with an estimated potential average grade for ore bearing pipes at about 0.7% to 0.8% uranium. These are historically the second richest class of uranium deposits in the world and highest grade deposits in the USA. Historically, mines in this region have produced some 26 million pounds of uranium. The pipes contain numerous metals in addition to uranium including copper, silver, vanadium, molybdenum, cobalt and nickel and others.
