Universal Intersects Gold in 13 of 14 Holes and Stakes Additional 2780 Acres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2009) - Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) (the "Company") is pleased to report the remaining drill results for the first phase drill program completed on its Tact project. The project is located in north-central Nevada within the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend. Geologic mapping, surface sampling and drilling have confirmed the presence of a large epithermal system located within the boundaries of the Company's claim position.

Mineralization is localized along faults cutting quartz monzonite intrusive and Pennsylvanian aged sediments. The mineralized zones are characterized by quartz veining with associated clay gouge, carbonate and iron oxide alteration. The altered zones contain disseminated gold mineralization with moderate-to-deep oxidation. The above attributes lend themselves to low cost open pit, heap leach technology utilized by low grade gold deposits in the vicinity.

Recent work and historic data have defined at least nine targets within the 1780 acre property. Information was released on October 1, 2009 for the first four holes of the drill program. These holes tested the Southwest target in Section 2, an area defined by a series of mineralized low-angle faults. The remainder of the drill holes tested three additional targets.

The Company is encouraged with the results of the drilling to date, noting that all holes drilled except for T09-10 encountered significant gold in one or more intervals. Hole T09-10 was abandoned in alluvial fill before reaching bedrock.

Holes 5, 6 and 14 probed under a northerly trending gold-in-soil anomaly identified as the Southeast target. Holes 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 investigated the Central target defined by several gold anomalies collected from soil and road cuts. Hole 10 tested the Southeast target in Section 12, but was abandoned before it encountered bedrock. Hole 13 tested the Northwest target defined by geophysics.

The following table summarizes the latest results of the drilling:








During drilling additional ground was obtained by locating unpatented mining claims on available land to the south of the property. A further 2780 acres were acquired bringing the total acreage currently held to 4560 acres. The additional land is known to cover at least two areas of previously recognized gold mineralization. The Company intends to investigate these occurrences in the near future with a detailed mapping and sampling program.

"The Company believes the results of this wide spaced drill program provide evidence of a large epithermal system underlying the property. Considering the road cut sampling and drilling results from this recent work, the newly acquired land, and the location of the property (situated within a prolific area of gold production), the Company is enthusiastic about its ultimate success," said Universal's president and chairman, Ron Atlas. "Our geologists are examining the results to determine the next step in developing this very prospective property."

To ensure reliable results, the Company employs a stringent set of quality assurance and quality control procedures. These procedures include check samples randomly introduced in the laboratory and in the field and duplicate samples collected for reanalysis if necessary. A chain-of-custody program provides security from the time of sample collection on site to delivery at the assay laboratory. Sample preparation and analysis are performed by American Assay Laboratories Inc, an ISOIEC 17025 accredited laboratory, at their Sparks, Nevada facility.
