Ucore and Landmark One Step Closer to Merger

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - Ucore Uranium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:UCU) and Landmark Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LML) took a pivotal step Friday, August 10, to completing their much anticipated merger. Landmark's shareholders have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the agreement which will see the two companies join forces.

"We're excited by the prospect of joining the geological and human resources of these two companies to create an emerging leader in Canada's junior uranium exploration sector," said Jim MacKenzie, President and CEO of Ucore. "With in excess of 200,000 hectares of high propensity geology North America-wide, the newly combined entity is poised for substantial growth well beyond 2008."

Friday's vote means all of the outstanding common shares of Landmark will be exchanged for common shares of Ucore on the basis of 0.68 Ucore share for every one share of Landmark.

Closing is expected to occur on August 17, 2007.
