Uranium North Identifies Additional Targets on the Robin Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Uranium North Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UNR) has staked an additional claim at the 100% owned Robin property in Nunavut. The claim covers a north - south trending till geochemical anomaly with samples assaying up to 2.42 g/T gold.

The anomalous trend is approximately 200 metres east of the main mineralized structure suggesting mineralization on the property may be more extensive. The till geochemical samples may also define a second north-south trending anomalous zone to the west and north of the main structure. Based on this data, mineralization at Robin appears to be open to the north under overburden cover.

"With just a few days of prospecting and sampling Uranium North has identified Robin as a new gold prospect in Nunavut. We now have an under-explored 2 kilometre structure with gold, silver and copper mineralization. This new till geochemistry suggests that the structure is either very wide or is two parallel zones," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources.

The known mineralized zone at Robin has been traced for 1.6 kilometres and has yielded numerous grab samples with high gold, silver and copper identified by the company in 2010 during a prospecting program. Assays recovered include gold as high as 11.75 g/T, copper up to 2.18% and silver as high as 16.2 g/T. (See news release dated November 4, 2010).

The Robin property is currently being reviewed. Further prospecting is warranted and a possible drill program to test a section across the main zone and the two soil anomalies.

Bruce Kienlen, P.Geol, and Graham Gill, P.Geo, are the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, reviewing data for this property.

Uranium North is exploring five gold properties of which two are candidates for drilling. In addition, the company is planning an aggressive resource expansion program on its 100% owned Amer Lake uranium property.
