Universal Intersects 1.61 Grams/Tonne Gold Over 3 Meters at Tact Property, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2009) - Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) (the "Company") is pleased to report surface sampling and drill results for the first four holes of its 14 hole drill program completed on its Tact gold project located in north-central Nevada within the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend. Geologic mapping, surface sampling and drilling have confirmed the presence of a large epithermal mineral system located within the boundaries of the company's claim position.

The mineralization is hosted in an atypical host rock, a quartz monzonite that may open a path to a new host rock for the district. The mineralized zones are characterized by quartz veining with associated carbonate and iron oxide alteration. The altered zones contain disseminated gold mineralization with moderate-to-deep oxidation. The above attributes lend themselves to low cost open pit, heap leach technology utilized by low grade gold deposits in the vicinity.

The Tact project represents an exciting, under-explored epithermal precious metals property within the highly productive Battle Mountain mining district. "Our Tact project provides the company with excellent potential for a discovery of bulk mineable gold within one of the most prolific and concentrated gold trends in the world," said Universal's president and chairman Ron Atlas. "We will continue to evaluate the results of our exploration efforts as we receive our assays from the 14 hole drill program just completed."

Eighty-nine channel samples were collected from access roads throughout the project area. The sampling length varies from 1 foot wide (0.3 meters) to 60 feet in length (18.3 meters). Out of the 89 samples collected, 26 contained over 0.35 g/t gold with a high of 4.65 g/t over 13 feet (4 meters) in length. A true thickness cannot be determined at this time due to restricted exposures of bedrock.

Recent work combined with historic information has identified at least nine targets within the 1780 acre property. The first four holes of the company's drill program tested one of these targets, the southwest area, defined by a series of mineralized low-angle faults. This target was originally recognized from historic soil sampling that demonstrated an elongated anomaly approximately 3000 feet (914 meters) in length and 300 feet (91.4 meters) in width. Gold values in this anomaly ranged from lows of 0.1 g/t to a high of 4.6 g/t gold. The following summarizes the results of the drilling:


Drill holes T09-1 through T09-3 are wide spaced with over 450 feet (137 meters) between holes. Hole T09-4 is situated topographically below Hole T09-2 and was drilled at an angle under the mineralized interval encountered in T09-2. The intent of T09-4 was to intersect a near-vertical "feeder" source of mineralization at depth.

The company believes the work completed to date, coupled with the presence of eight additional targets defined by geologic mapping, historic geophysical surveys, and geochemical sampling, provide evidence of a large epithermal system underlying the property. Considering the sampling and drilling results, and the location of the property (situated within a prolific area of gold production), the company is enthusiastic over its chance of success on this project.
