Upper Canada Gold Corporation Announces Assay Results from the Dingman Property 2010 Drilling

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) - Upper Canada Gold Corporation (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UCC) announces selected drill hole results from the drill program that commenced in early March 2010 on the Company's 100% owned Dingman Property.

The following assay results, corresponding to the second and third drill holes of a minimum twenty hole drill program at the Dingman Property are as follows:

The true widths of these mineralized zones are approximately 70% of the above Dingman drill intercept widths.

The holes, corresponding to the above assays, were drilled on section between DI-07-08 and DI-09-16, which was previously drilled by Opawica Explorations Inc. ("OPW"), to extend the continuity of the mineralization between the OPW holes. The drill pattern was designed to have pierce points 25-30m apart within the plane of the mineralization in order that the contained mineralization could be included in future resource updates.

The drill program is focused on extending the mineralization beneath the current resource base from approximately 200 m to 300 m below surface. As described further in the Company's NI-43-101 compliant technical report on the Dingman Property dated September 15, 2009 and filed on SEDAR, the indicated resource estimate for the Dingman Property includes a total of 8,801,000 tonnes at 0.97 g/t Au. The inferred resource estimate is a total of 11,301,000 tonnes at 0.98 g/t Au. These resources are based on a 0.40 g/t Au cut-off grade and a capping Au strategy of 30 g/t.

Approximately 6,700 m of drilling is planned under the current drill program of which approximately 5,502 m has been completed. Sample reporting was delayed for DI-10-02A and DI-10-02B (Section L50W, 215N) due to pending assay results DI-10-2A. Assay results are complete for DH-10-03A &B and the section containing these drill holes will be reported upon receiving assay results for DI-10-03C.

Assays results are also pending for eight additional drill holes. Two completed drill holes are currently being sampled.

Fire assaying for the Dingman property was completed by AGAT Laboratories of Mississauga, Ontario.
