Uranium Bay Identifies Another 21 New Discrete Uranium Anomalies on Kauschiskach Uranium Property That are Worthy of Follow-Up

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 14, 2008) - Uranium Bay Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:UBR) is pleased to inform shareholders that Geoff Campbell, GAP Geophysics director, has completed the Kauschiskach Uranium Property ("KUP or K1") geophysical report based on the summer 2007 helicopter airborne survey. Several significant uranium anomalies have been identified.

Further to the receipt of these results UBR technical team has completed a preliminary ground follow-up investigation that indicate the presence of at least one large zone of low-grade mineralization. A 600 - 1,000m drilling programme to investigate this mineralization will commence shortly after the completion of the UUP drilling programme.

The interpretation map is attached to this press release and will be available on the UBR website at www.uraniumbay.com.

The highlights of the report are that:

- More than 21 discrete uranium anomalies have been identified;

- Several of these anomalies have significant length and area;

- Several semi-regional "halo" zones(1) of enhanced uranium activity have been mapped. There are numerous "hot-spot" zones".

- These "hot-spot zones" are up to 1 500 m longest (continuous) dimension; and

- The discrete radiometric anomalies outlined on the interpretation map are worthy of significant ground-follow-up interest."

(1) These areas are shown on the attached map (http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/UBR_Map0714.pdf) as the large areas in the map with thin green horizontal or vertical lines.

Subsequent to receipt of the GAP report UBR has completed a helicopter borne preliminary investigation of the key anomaly identified in the north-west part of the property. This anomaly is a late stage intrusive granite of monzo-granitic composition (quartz and feldspar rich which is not banded) intruded into an earlier, very slightly banded whitish granite. The intrusive relationship is complex but uranium grade appears to increase towards the centre of the intrusive (away from the margins).

On the basis of these results UBR plans on drilling, during July and August 2008, some 600 - 1000m at K1 as part of the Uskawanis drilling programme

Background to the K1 Project

The K1 deposit is located some 60 kms north of La Grande 3, James Bay. The geology is Archaean granites of the Superior Province. The local geology consists of a monzonitic (white) granite intruded into an earlier slightly banded, slightly coarser grained pale granite that has numerous pegmatites and quart veins. The intruding granite tends to be very homogeneous and has few veins of any sort.

The uranium/ thorium is present at elevated levels in the younger granite. The central zone of this granite appears to have the better uranium grades (from handheld spectrometer) and the grade distinctly drops towards the margin of the intrusive. This is seen on the ground and from the airborne radiometry which shows a well defined higher grade core.

Mr. Bernard Tourillon, UBR's Chairman and CEO, comments:

"The discovery of more uranium mineralization on the K1 property combined with the already identified uranium mineralization on the Uskawanis and Wakeham properties increases the visibility of the UBR portfolio of uranium projects."

UBR's driven, methodical and scientific approach to Uranium exploration confirms our leadership position in Uranium exploration in the Province of Quebec, currently recognized as one of the best jurisdiction in the world for natural resource exploration.
