United Uranium Corp. and Star Uranium Corp. Announce Results of Sampling of Carolyn Pipe

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2008) - United Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UUC) and Star Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SUV) are pleased to announce sample results of drill core from the "Carolyn" Kimberlite pipe in the Fort a la Corne area. This drilling took place in 2004 and consisted of 5 holes of which 4 encountered kimberlite. In the companies news release of June 15, 2004 sample results were reported for holes C1 and C2. Because of costs, management indicated that holes C4 and C5 would be tested at a later date. Holes C4 and C5 were subsequently sampled and analyses were received in June 2006. Due to an oversight by management at that time, the details of these results were not disclosed. The current management has become aware of this oversight, and is releasing the results of the sampling of holes C4 and C5.

Analysis of approximately 210.0 kg of split NQ core from holes C4 and C5 yielded 6 diamonds. The other half of the split core has been retained in a secure building.

Analysis was by total dissolution using caustic fusion, carried out by the Saskatchewan Research Council, which is certified under ISO 17025.

Sample A, representing core from 194.4 m to 207.9 m depth in hole C4, and having a mass of 27.8 kg, yielded 1 diamond retained on the 150 micron screen, 2 diamonds on the 106 micron screen, and 1 diamond on the 75 micron screen. Sample A was a light grey coloured, fine-grained calcitic kimberlite.

Sample D, representing the interval from 169.4 m to 193.8 m in hole C5, and having a mass of 47.25 kg, yielded 1 diamond on the 212 micron screen. Sample E, representing the interval from 147.7 m to 169.4 m in the same hole, and with a mass of 43.1 kg, yielded 1 diamond on the 106 micron screen. Samples D and E were both fine- to medium-grained lappilli tuffs, with sample E having more of the medium-grained sized lapilli.

Hole C5 is about 47 m north of hole C4. Hole C4 is about 34 m west of hole C1, and hole C5 is about 29 m west of hole C2, both previously reported in the press release of June 15, 2004. A total sample weight of approximately 386 kg from holes C1 and C2 returned 2 diamonds on the 106 micron screen. Hole C3, drilled about 48 m east of hole C1, failed to intersect the Carolyn kimberlite.

Present ownership of the property is a 50/50 joint venture between Star Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SUV) and United Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UUC). The companies are currently assessing exploration results to date.
