Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX: PNP), announces that on September 1, 2006 it acquired ownership of 5,000,000 common shares (“Common Shares”) of Mega Uranium Ltd. (“Mega”) (TSXV: MGA), which represents approximately 4.6% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Mega as of September 1, 2006. As a result of this transaction, Pinetree and its joint actors held, as at September 1, 2006, an aggregate of 8,656,200 common shares of Mega and rights to acquire an aggregate of 5,250,000 common shares of Mega upon certain convertible securities (the “Convertible Securities”). Of these totals, Pinetree holds only 5,201,200 common shares directly, representing approximately 4.9% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Mega as of September 1, 2006.
