Uragold Completes the Acquisition of the Armstrong Gold Anomaly

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2010) - Uragold Bay Resources Inc. (Uragold) (TSX VENTURE:UBR), Uragold is pleased to announce it has completed the acquisition of 100% interest in 26 claims by map staking and through an exchange of claims with a private vendor for the Armstrong Property. It is located in the Quebec Appalachians, east of the village of Armstrong in the Beauce region of the Province of Quebec. The property is 35 km south of Uragold's Beauce Placer Gold Property and 14 km north of the US boarder

The lithology is similar to Uragold's McDonald project 110 km south west of the Armstrong Property. Both properties are within the Compton Formation. The Formation is part of the sedimentary sequence of the Connecticut Valley-Gaspe Synclinorium.

The Armstrong holds three mineralized bodies described by Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources (MRNF) as the Ruisseau du Camp, Armstrong Sud and the Protage. Together, they form an auriferous anomaly suggesting the presence of a hard rock gold deposit within veins of gold bearing quartz in sedimentary rocks. The mineralized bodies are aligned in a southwest to northwestern direction on a 2,5 km linear trend.

Gold on the Armstrong Sud showing are found in quartz veins in slates of the Compton Formation. On the Ruisseau du Camp and Protage showings, high gold grades of 137 g/ton and 163 g/ton were obtained from sediment samples.

Uragold is interested in finding the hard rock source from which the gold originated. It is possible that this source is somewhere within the company's claimed blocks.
