UC Resources Ltd. recently completed in excess of $3.25 million spending commitment as required under the terms of an Option agreement signed on March 6, 2009 (based upon a Letter of Intent ("LOI") originally signed on March 6, 2007) between Spider Resources Inc.

The fourth and final year earn in expenditure to earn the additional 15% interest is underway.

UC would also like to advise that drilling has resumed in the James Bay Lowlands and will involve a multi-hole drill program to be completed prior to the Christmas break.

Assay results from the recent drill program that commenced in mid October (announced October 18, 2009) consisting of 4 holes at McFaulds West property are pending and will be released upon receipt.
