VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2010) - United Mining Group, Inc. (the "Company" or "UMG"), (CNSX:UMG)(MUN:UM8) is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) has conditionally approved the Company's common shares for listing on the TSX. The TSX has reserved the stock trading symbol "UMG" in anticipation of the commencement of trading of the Company's shares. 

Listing of the Company's common shares on the TSX is subject to the Company providing evidence of meeting all TSX requirements, including receipt by the TSX of certain required documentation. The Company will make a further announcement once the TSX has issued a bulletin confirming the date on which trading will begin. Once listed on the TSX, the Company will delist from the Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX).

Greg Stewart, President and CEO of UMG, stated, "The TSX is one of the most active markets in the world for resource companies and particularly precious metal producers. Listing on the TSX offers our shareholders increased exposure to the global mining investment community and provides the Company with access to capital and enhanced liquidity."
