Universal Uranium and Silver Spruce Resources to Proceed with Joint Venture in Lieu of Combination Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2007) - Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:UUL) and Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE)(FRANKFURT:S6Q) report that they will not be proceeding with the previously announced business combination transaction (see news release dated June 15, 2007). Silver Spruce and Universal Uranium will continue to work together to formulate the terms of their joint venture in Labrador. The decision not to proceed with the business combination resulted primarily from advice put forward by the financial advisor of Silver Spruce who concluded, based on analysis of the transaction, that proceeding with the joint venture was more favorable.

Universal Uranium has the right to become the operator on these claims. The 34 Bayswater Uranium Corp. claims are exempt from this joint venture and instead are held 50% with Bayswater with the remaining 50% divided equally between Universal Uranium and Silver Spruce (see news release dated August 9, 2007).
