TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2012) - Further to its press releases dated December 5, 2011, January 23, 2012 and March 5, 2012, United Reef Limited (TSX VENTURE:URP) ("United Reef") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a pre-amalgamation agreement (the "Agreement") with Black Widow Resources Inc. ("Black Widow"), which contemplates the amalgamation of United Reef and Black Widow by way of reverse take-over (the "Amalgamation") pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V").

The Amalgamation will be effected in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. The security exchange ratios under the terms of the Agreement have been negotiated and agreed to on an arm's-length basis. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, each security of United Reef will be exchanged for an equivalent security of the amalgamated entity ("Amalco") on the basis of 17.061 United Reef securities for one (1) equivalent Amalco security (subject to adjustment), and each security of Black Widow will be exchanged for an equivalent security of Amalco on the basis of one (1) Black Widow security for two (2) equivalent Amalco securities.

The transaction is based on a deemed valuation of Amalco of $7,876,277 at a price of $0.15 per post-Amalgamation share ("Amalco Share") based on the issue price pursuant to a proposed brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for gross proceeds of a minimum of $3,000,000 and a maximum of $5,000,000 to be completed as part of the Amalgamation. Black Widow has engaged Pope & Company Limited as lead agent with respect to the Private Placement. It is anticipated that the current shareholders of United Reef will own approximately 5,366,667 Amalco Shares representing 10.22% of the outstanding Amalco Shares and the shareholders of Black Widow will own approximately 27,141,846 Amalco Shares representing 51.69% of the outstanding Amalco Shares upon completion of the Amalgamation, with the balance of the Amalco Shares to be held by subscribers pursuant to the Private Placement. Amalco will continue operations under the name "Black Widow Resources Inc." The percentages in relation to the ownership of Amalco Shares may vary in the event that Black Widow issues securities in conjunction with further property acquisitions prior to the completion of the Amalgamation.

As at the date of this news release, United Reef has 89,139,980 common shares, 3,140,000 common share purchase warrants and 2,650,000 stock options issued and outstanding, and Black Widow has 13,570,923 common shares and 23,750 common share purchase warrants issued and outstanding.

United Reef has also received notice from URSA Major Minerals Incorporated (TSX:UMJ) ("URSA") advising that URSA has not met the vesting requirements to exercise its option to earn an interest in United Reef's Nickel Offsets property near Sudbury, Ontario. The option was granted pursuant to the terms of an agreement made as of March 28, 2008 and the option lapsed effective March 28, 2012, resulting in United Reef retaining a 100% interest in the property.

All information contained in this news release with respect to United Reef and Black Widow was supplied by the parties respectively, for inclusion herein, and each party and its directors and officers have relied on the other party for any information concerning the other party.
