UC Resources Ltd. Acquires 44,830 Hectares to Copalquin Mining District and Acquires Drilling Equipment for Ongoing Exploration

TORREON, COAHUILA, MEXICO and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 19, 2006) - UC Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UC) -

The Company is pleased to announce that it has made an application to expand the land position at the Copalquin Project in Durango State by an additional 44,830 hectares, bringing UC Resources' total land package at Copalquin to 64,099 hectares (approximately 641 sq. km).

Regional scale geological maps provided by the CRM (Mexican Ministry of Mines, Consejo de Recursos Minerales) show that the Copalquin Mining District, which is the current focus of the Company's exploration work, lies along the northwestern margin of a complex, sub-circular structural zone that has a diameter of roughly 30 kilometres. The structural zone is interpreted as the margin of a regional caldera complex and with the exception of approximately 10% of the ground along the southern margin, which is owned by Alamos Gold and known as the La Fortuna property, UC Resources now controls all of the remaining ground within this inferred caldera complex.

Regional scale mineral occurrence and stream geochemistry maps indicate multiple target areas within the expanded concessions including strong "gold in streams" anomalies in the southern part of the concession (associated with prominent northwest trending structural zones) and a porphyry copper prospect in the northern part of the concession.

Management believes that the potential of the Copalquin District has been overlooked due primarily to the lack of an access road. Now that the Company controls the entire district, management has authorized a review of potential access routes and expects to have cost estimates available by the fall. In the interim the Company has agreed to purchase a complete, heli-portable drill rig from the contractor currently on site and plans to operate the drill on a continuing basis.

Copalquin has a history of gold and silver production, but with the modern exploration work that UC is conducting, this represents the first modern and systematic exploration in this district. UC's focus is solely on Mexico and the Company is actively searching for additional quality production assets so that UC can become a significant emerging producing gold and silver exploration and development company in 2006. UC Resources expects to provide an update by the end of May on the acquisition of the La Yesca and Mar production assets. With the expansion of Copalquin, and the acquisition of production assets, the Company's combined total land package in Mexico's prolific Sierra Madres is 64,799 hectares.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Richard J. Hamelin, President/Director
