Uranium North Begins Exploration Program on the Aura Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2010) - Uranium North Resources Corp (TSX VENTURE:UNR) has commenced its 2010 exploration program on the 100% owned Aura Gold project located in Nunavut. This program is designed to develop drill targets on the Robin, F13 and Nowyak zones. The program will focus on mapping, prospecting and sampling over these areas with known mineralization to determine control factors for high grade gold, silver and copper. In addition, the program will attempt to identify new zones of mineralization on the property where gold grain in till anomalies exist.

"I think we have a real opportunity in front of us. Projects like F13, Robin and Nowyak have high grade gold, silver and copper and have either not been systematically explored or have only seen minimal work activity. This is an opportunity for the company to create value over a short period of time at low cost to shareholders," says Mark Kolebaba, President of Uranium North Resources.

The Aura property comprises the Robin, F13 and Nowyak projects as well as large unexplored areas with gold grain anomalies in till. The Robin and F13 prospects were previously targeted for copper and nickel in 1964 and not for gold. Historical trenching results from Robin reported assays up to 0.55 oz/ton (18.9 g/T) Au, 1.56 oz/ton (53.5 g/T) Ag, and 9.91% Cu. At F13, gold mineralization discovered in trenches assayed up to 4.9 oz/ton (168.0 g/T) Au, 1.59 oz/ton (54.5 g/T) Ag and 21.4% Cu.

At the Nowyak showing prospecting and drill samples yielded high gold values including a sample that assayed 117 g/T Au and 1420 g/T Ag. This is an extensive structure with gold mineralization and is believed to be underexplored, creating a great opportunity for the company.

Linda Erdman, P. Geo and Geoffrey Goodall, P. Geo are responsible for design and execution of the 2010 program and have reviewed historical reports for the property. The historical work has not been verified by the Company, however, it appears to have been completed under standard best practices consistent with the time and appears to be of reasonable quality.
