United Mining Group, Inc.: Crescent Silver Mine-Amended Disclosure

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) - United Mining Group, Inc. (the "Company") (CNSX:UMG) reports that as a result of a review by the British Columba Securities Commission, the Company is issuing the following news release to clarify its previous disclosure with respect to its Crescent Silver Mine.

Clarification of May 10, 2010 News Release

The Company's NI 43-101 Report by SRK Consulting of March 1, 2010 reports an indicated resource 6.1 million ounces silver consisting of 324,000 tons grading 18.7 ounces silver per ton and an additional inferred resource of 4.1 million ounces silver consisting of 211,000 tons grading 19.5 ounces silver per ton. The resource estimate in the Company's May 10, 2010 news release did not report the indicated and inferred classes separately improperly adding them together and did not state grade and tonnage quantities of the estimates as required by the NI 43-101 requirements.

In its May 10, 2010 news release, the Company indicated its intention to begin commercial production on the Crescent Silver Mine in early 2011. The planning for this production is based on recently completed drill results, underground work, ongoing mine planning and historical mine workings in the immediate area of the proposed production. The Company has not completed a preliminary assessment as defined by NI 43-101 or a pre-feasibility study with respect to the Crescent Silver Mine. The risks associated with the commencement of production without completing and disclosing a formal economic analysis supporting the production decision are significant. In making any decision to commence or thereafter continue, commercial production at the Crescent Silver Mine, the Company expressly reserves its right to alter, amend or abandon such activity at any time or for any reason at any time.

Investor Presentation Material

The Company's investor presentation, "Vertically Integrated Mining Company", a "Special Report Edition" report by Equedia Corporation and a Midas Letter (May 19, 2010) prepared by Resourcex Financial Publishing LLC distributed at the Cambridge Mining Conference in Vancouver also had similar reporting deficiencies as described above and should not be relied upon until they are properly amended by Company according to NI 43-101 requirements.

The "Special Report Edition" report by Equedia Corporation and the Midas Letter (May 19, 2010) prepared by Resourcex Financial Publishing LLC did not explain how a historical, NI 43-101 non-compliant reserve estimate relates to the current resource estimates contained in the Company's March 1, 2010 NI 43-101 report.

The Company confirms that the historic reserve referred to in the Equedia Report and the Midas Letter is non 43-101 compliant and, more importantly, is not incremental to and is superseded by the current resource estimate as quoted above and contained in the Company's March 1, 2010 NI 43-101 report.

NI 43-101 Report

The Company reiterates that the only compliant NI 43-101 resource estimates are the current resource estimates in its technical report dated March 1, 2010. Readers are encouraged to refer to that report when making an investment decision with respect to the Company. The Company's technical report is available at www.sedar.com.

The Company takes it obligations with respect to disclosure extremely seriously and has taken the necessary steps to remove linkages and/or references to Company materials and third-party reports including the aforementioned that do not meet the requirements of NI 43-101.
