Silver Spruce Resources & Universal Uranium Intersect Uranium Mineralization at Two Time Zone

BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 4, 2007) -

Highlights

- Uranium mineralization intersected in four of five drill holes

- Values to 0.13% U3O8 over 1.6 meters

Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE) and Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) are pleased to announce that they have intersected uranium mineralization in four of the five holes drilled in December on the Two Time Zone, located on the CMB Northwest claim block east of Snegamook Lake. A total of 812 meters were drilled during this program.

All four holes gave narrow zones grading over 0.1% uranium oxide (U3O8) within wider zones of lower grade mineralization. The best mineralization was located in the southern portion of the grid at drill hole CMB-06-3 where two sections graded 0.13% U3O8 over 1.6 meters from a depth of 100.8 to 102.4 meters, and over 1.4 meters, from a depth of 106.1 to 107.5 meters. The mineralized zone appears to be cut off to the north, possibly by faulting, but remains open to the south where anomalous soil geochemistry indicates the zone may continue under a small pond. Mineralization is associated with a brecciated/fractured felsic intrusive with extensive chlorite and hematite alteration that is at least 50 meters wide.

"We are pleased with these initial results which indicate that a strong uranium mineralized system exists on the property," stated Lloyd Hillier, President & CEO of Silver Spruce Resources. "The success of this early stage drill program shows that we are very likely close to a new uranium discovery."

The drilling targeted an anomalous radioactive zone, the Two Time Zone, covering an area of 300 meters by 50 meters. Channel/chip sampling in November gave anomalous values in all trenches with the highest grades located in Trench 5 which gave 0.032% U3O8 over five meters, including 0.051% U3O8 over one meter. Grades from the drilling are higher than those located in the trench/channel sampling. The locations of the drill holes and the selected analytical values for sections sampled are shown in the table below and the map can be viewed on the company website at: www.silverspruceresources.com. The drill remains onsite in preparation for further drilling during the winter of 2007.

Analyses were performed by Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, Ontario, an approved, accredited laboratory, using the delayed neutron activation technique, which gives good results for samples carrying up to one percent uranium.

Samples were taken based on anomalous total count scintillometer values on individual core samples, away from any mass effect. Samples are not continuous and sampled/unsampled core, with lower scintillometer readings, lies between the sampled sections. All core samples in the vicinity of mineralized zones will be sent for analysis early in the new year to allow a calculation of total grades over the total drilled width of the zone. The orientation of the zone, and therefore the true width of the drill intersections, remains unknown at this time.

This release has been approved by Peter Dimmell, P.Geo., Vice President of Exploration, Silver Spruce Resources Inc., who is a Qualified Person (QP) as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
