UC Receives Loan Facility From FIFOMI

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2008) - UC Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UC) -

UC Resources is pleased to announce the granting of a US$350,000.00 loan facility from the Mexican Mining Development Trust - Fideicomiso de Fomento Minero (FIFOMI).

Funds from this loan will be used for the completion of UC Resources production facility at La Yesca which is now fully funded through to production, and working capital for inventories while cash flow is realized. The La Yesca mill is nearing completion awaiting final MIA (environmental approval) and commissioning will begin immediately after the tailings containment pond is completed.

It is important to note that the FIFOMI loan also serves as a major accreditation from the Mexican Business Development Co-corporation in conjunction with the Government of Mexico.

The La Yesca mill is a complete reconstruction of the previous La Yesca mill and is located four kilometres outside the town of La Yesca, Mexico in Nayarit State. Once commissioning is complete the La Yesca mill has a design capacity of 200 tons per day (TPD) of tailings from the estimated 220,000 tons of tailings grading 2.0 g/t Au and 220 g/t Ag silver.
