Trading Symbol TSX-V - AMW 
VANCOUVER, Nov. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Alpha Minerals Inc. (formerly ESO Uranium 
Corp.) (TSX-V: AMW), (the "Company" or "Alpha"), is pleased to announce the 
appointment of Dr Michael Gunning to its Board of Directors. In a planned 
build out of the Management team of the Company, he will also serve as lead 
Technical Advisor, in support of advancing the Company's recent discovery at 
Patterson Lake, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. 
Dr Gunning brings a very diverse and valuable range of experience and proven 
leadership to Alpha from his 25 years in the mineral exploration and 
geological research sectors. Most recently as former President and CEO of 
Hathor Exploration Ltd, he successfully transitioned the Company from the 
grass roots discovery to the definition of a uranium deposit with truly world 
class attributes, and steered it's eventual sale to Rio Tinto Plc., a leading 
producer in the global uranium sector. 
Ben Ainsworth, President, Alpha Minerals Inc. comments: "This is a critical 
first step required for Alpha to carry on a successful exploration effort on 
the Patterson Lake South Joint Venture with Fission Energy and its other 
uranium interests in the Athabasca Basin. Dr. Gunning will be a critical voice 
in advising the Board, and management, as to the technical approach to 
understanding and advancing Patterson Lake, an early stage but promising 
discovery in the well-established and preeminent high grade uranium district 
in the world. I look forward to again working again with Michael, having seen 
his proven ability to lead so effectively the team at Hathor. 
Dr Gunning attained an Honours BSc degree in geology from UBC, followed by a 
time in the junior gold exploration sector, and onto mineral deposit research 
and regional mapping with the British Columbia Geological Survey and 
Geological Survey of Canada, all towards completing MSc and PhD degrees at the 
University of Western Ontario. Following work with Teck Resources in base 
metal exploration in North and South America, he joined the Saskatchewan 
Geology survey as lead Mineral Deposits Research Geologist. Dr. Gunning is 
extensively published, has presented at numerous technical and investor 
conferences, and is past-President of the SEG Student Chapter at Western, and 
Geological Society of Saskatchewan. 
Dr Gunning is granted 100,000 options today at the last market closing price 
of $1.69 and these options will be exercisable for 5 years. Additional 
compensation has been agreed upon, in light of the Company's option structure.
