UC Resources Ltd. Adopts an Amended and Restated Shareholder Rights Plan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 15, 2013) - UC Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UC) -

The Board of Directors of the Company has elected to adopt an amended and restated shareholder rights plan that was presented to and approved by the shareholders of the Company at the Company's annual general meeting held on December 13, 2012. The amended and restated shareholder rights plan was also approved by the TSX Venture Exchange on January 09, 2013.

The amended and restated shareholder rights plan has been adopted to ensure the fair treatment of all shareholders with respect to any takeover bid for the common shares of the Company. It is designed to provide shareholders with sufficient time to properly consider a takeover bid without undue time constraints. In addition, it will provide the Board with additional time for review and consideration of an unsolicited takeover bid and, if necessary, for the consideration of alternatives.

This amended and restated shareholder rights plan is not being adopted in response to any proposal to acquire control of the Company.

The Company advises that it has also accepted the resignation of Mr. Michel Roy as a Director effective immediately. The Company would like to thank Mr. Roy for his years of service and wish him continued success as he pursues various opportunities.

The Company has appointed Mr. John Archibald, A.P.G.O., P.Geo., as Director replacing the vacancy created through the resignation by Mr. Roy. Mr. John Archibald is self-employed as a consulting geologist working under contract for a number of mineral exploration companies. John graduated with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Geology from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. Mr. Archibald is a member of the Ontario Prospectors Association (Southern Ontario Branch) and is a Fellow in the Geological Association of Canada (FGAC). Since graduation from university, he has accumulated 40 years of experience as a Geologist. John provides excellent experience to UC Resources as the Company continues with its drilling efforts at its Xora concession, immediately adjacent to the La Yesca mill operations. The Company welcomes John Archibald as a Director of UC Resources.
