Universal Uranium Begins Phase I Drill Program at Artillery Peak

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2007) - Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on its 100% owned Artillery Peak Property in Mohave County, Arizona. The Phase I drill program will consist of 41 holes totaling approximately 15,700 feet of drilling and has been designed to bring the current historical resource on the property to 43-101 compliance and expand the known mineralization in the area.

Universal Uranium acquired the Artillery Peak property on February 21, 2006. The property consists of 86 lode mining claims totaling 1,777 acres and is located 112 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona. Based on a 1979 report released by Central and South West Fuels Inc, the northern part of the property contains a historical resource of 1.7 million pounds of U308 with an average grade of 0.113%. The drill program will begin with 26 validation holes to confirm the historical ore reserves which occur in the lower member of the Artillery Peak Formation. The lower member outcrops in this area and the drilling will be relatively shallow (less than 200 meters). Nine new exploration holes are also planned in order to potentially expand the known resource.

The southern portion of the property had a minimum of 90 holes drilled by Homestake and Hecla in the 1970's. In this phase of the project, plans are for six holes to be drilled in this area to obtain data on the regional stratigraphy of the area. The lower mineralized member of the Artillery Peak Formation does not outcrop in this area, but is presumed to be at depth. Due to the density of previous drilling, and the thickening of the sediments in this portion of the basin, it is possible that the southern area may have multiple mineralized horizons.

Richard Dorman, Vice President of Exploration, states, "Due to the historical data we have obtained, we are enthusiastic about the prospects at Artillery Peak. This Phase I drill program will greatly increase our understanding of this historical resource and bring us one step closer to uncovering the potential of the property."

(TSX VENTURE:UUL) is a publicly held Canadian uranium exploration company focused on acquiring, exploring and developing uranium properties located in favorable geo-political climates.
