UC Hub Group Funds and Drills First Oil/Gas Well

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - UC Hub Group Inc. (OTCBB: UCHB) announced today that, following funding, it has begun a permitted well drilling program in southeastern Illinois with its privately held joint venture partner, Rector Drilling of Crawford County, Illinois. The Crawford County area, where the well is located, has produced more than 250 million barrels of crude oil thus far during the last hundred years, making it one of the largest oil fields in the Illinois Basin.

Crawford County's big field discovery was in 1906, and the area has a long history of production of sweet, shallow and low sulfur Oil in the Mississippian and Pennsylvanian formations. Many oil and gas distribution companies and marketing companies, including the Marathon Oil Refinery (formerly Ohio Oil Company) -- the fifth largest crude oil refinery in the U.S. -- are located in the area. Visiting the well site, management was impressed with the density of oil and gas wells in Crawford County and in the immediate area of the joint venture project and equally impressed with the number and quality of wells that had been recently drilled by Rector Drilling.

UC HUB/Rector has aggressively drilled the first 80-90 feet and set the surface pipe and casing. Rigs, tools, equipment, and staff are in place and drilling is ongoing. The tank battery for the oil storage is also in place. The expected depth of this hole is approximately 1,900 feet (Salem zone of the Mississippian), with the potential of multiple pay zones. There are additional opportunities with this 400-acre lease, once this first well is successfully completed. Wells in this general area have produced oil for multiple years, ranging from 1 barrel a day to 1,000+ barrels a day.

This project with Rector is the first of what management believes will be multiple joint venture projects that will produce revenue, stability, and longevity to compliment the Company's mining opportunities in Montana. CEO Larry Wilcox stated, "In our continuing efforts to deliver as promised, we now have a mining site, an oil and gas property, and equipment in place both at Montana and Illinois; we promised an active program and within a week we began drilling. We are optimistic about the potential for this well for profitable production. With a little cooperation from Mother Earth, we will soon see the success of our revenue model and a strengthening of our balance sheet."
