UC Resources Ltd. Begins Drilling at Xora Claim, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2010) - UC Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UC) ("UC") is pleased to update exploration activities at the Xora claim which is situated three kilometres from the La Yesca mill site.

Drilling has now commenced on the La Colorada vein with an initial three drill locations spotted based on Induced Polarization ground geophysics as well as estimation of the directional geological trend gathered from the La Colorada mine opening some 180 metres from our initial drill target. Both down dip and step out drilling will be conducted should the visual interpretation of the core warrant it.

To date, eight kilometres of mountain road has been constructed to access the top of the XORA claim and the road will continue to be driven to the remaining exploration targets, the El Mirador and Las Cuatas, which are also located near the peak of the Xora Mountain.

The area associated with the three initial drill targets have all historically been mined to varying extents, with La Colorada having a non-compliant 43-101 resources calculation which was compiled by the Mexican Ministry of Mines, by way of wall rock chip sampling, of 11,000 tonnes grading .7 g/t gold and 619 g/t silver.

The initial shallow drilling of these occurrences is intended to give guidance to a deeper and more thorough program with the intentions of building a resource capable of feeding future raw ore material to the La Yesca mill.

The first hole is presently at a depth of 160 metres of a planned 180 metre targeted depth. Of the 160 metres drilled to date, 62 metres has been sent for assay to ALS Chemex, Vancouver, through its prep lab in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Mr. Newton, PGeo, of Billiken Management Services Inc. and a qualified person pursuant to NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this news release on behalf of the company.

UC Resources is an active explorer of base metals and chromite in the McFaulds Lake area ("Ring of Fire") of the James Bay Lowlands, Ontario, as well as an explorer and a near term producer of precious metals in Mexico.
