Universal Uranium Ltd.: Statement of Defence and Counterclaim Filed In Crosshair Action

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2009) - Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) (the "Company") announced that it has filed a Statement of Defence and Counterclaim in an action commenced by Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. ("Crosshair") in the B.C. Supreme Court. The Crosshair action seeks rescission of two agreements, one being a property purchase agreement under which Crosshair acquired the Company's mineral claims in the Central Mineral Belt in Labrador, and the other being a private placement agreement under which Crosshair purchased units of the Company.

The Company considers the Crosshair action to be without merit. The Company's Statement of Defence and Counterclaim denies that Crosshair is entitled to rescission of the two agreements and asserts that the Crosshair action was commenced for the purpose of artificially increasing the value of Crosshair's shares by halting the release from escrow of the Crosshair shares to which UUL is entitled under the property purchase agreement. The Statement of Defence and Counterclaim also asserts that the Crosshair action is an abuse of process and seeks damages for the loss of the Company's opportunity to market the Crosshair shares to which the Company is entitled.
