Uranium North Commences Drilling on the Amer Lake Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 21, 2011) -Uranium North Resource Corp. ("Uranium North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UNR) announces drilling is underway on the Company's 100% owned Amer Lake project in Nunavut. The program is designed to test for additional uranium mineralization along strike of the Main Zone deposit in an attempt to increase the existing 19.3 million pound uranium resource*.

During an initial program approximately 20 drill holes southeast of the inferred resource* are planned. An additional 20 holes have been proposed for a second phase program (See Map: http://www.uraniumnorth.com/s/AmerLake-Main.asp).

An important aspect of the program is to identify additional higher grade and thicker zones as observed in drill hole UNR-15. (See news release dated August 6, 2009.)

"The program is focused on drilling the southeastern part of the Main Zone deposit where no drilling has been completed in the past. We hope to add significantly to the resource as we explore this new area," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources Corp.

Reverse circulation drill cuttings will be logged in the field under binocular microscope. A scintillometer will be used to measure intervals with elevated uranium prior to sampling. Geochemical sampling will be conducted every 1.5 metre.

Alan Sexton from Geovector Management Inc. is the acting Qualified Persons for the field operation. Bruce Kienlen, P.Geol, and Graham Gill P.Geo, are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101, assisting in reviewing data for this property.
