Uranium North Announces Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRES

Uranium North Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UNR) announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement to raise up to $4 million, through the sale of flow-through shares. The flow-through shares will comprise up to 13,333,333 shares at $0.30 per share (the "Flow-Through Shares"). The placement is to finance the upcoming exploration program on its 100% owned Canadian projects.

A cash finder's fee of 5% of the gross proceeds may be payable on a portion of the placement. Finders may also receive warrants (the "Finders Warrants") entitling them to purchase that number of non flow-through common shares which is equal to 7% of the number of Flow-Through Shares sold by the Finders. The Finders Warrants will expire twelve months after the closing of the Offering. The exercise price for the Finders Warrants will be $0.45 per common share.

The program will consist of drilling on the Amer Lake, Kam and Hawk projects all located in Nunavut. Also, target confirmation through ground surveys will be the focus for the Carswell property in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan.

Uranium North is confident in Nunavut's commitment to responsible mineral exploration and development. Uranium exploration is supported by Nunavut's 2003 Economic Development Strategy. Coupled with the commitment to responsible mineral exploration, is the reality that much of Nunavut is under-explored. Uranium North is poised to take full advantage of the targets on its Nunavut properties.

The Flow-Through Shares and the Finders Warrants will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the closing of the Offering.

This private placement is subject to regulatory approval.
