Uranium North Intersects Gold at the Mallery Lake Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 19, 2012) - Uranium North Resources Corp. ("Uranium North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UNR) announces gold mineralization was intersected in all five drill holes at the Mallery Lake gold property in Nunavut.

Drill hole ML-11-01, drilled near the western margin of the Stockwork zone, intersected a 3 metre zone of 4.62 g/T gold including 0.55 metres at 15 g/T. Drill hole ML-11-02, was the deepest drill hole into the Stockwork zone and intersected numerous mineralized zones including 21 metres of 1.01 g/T gold at a depth between 170 and 191 metres. Drill holes ML-11-03, 04, and 05 intersected mineralized zones showing lateral extent to the northeast, east, and west of the Stockwork zone. (See map on our website: http://www.uraniumnorth.com/i/pdf/Mallery-Map-Jan18.pdf.)

These drill results are very encouraging as they highlight typical grades, widths, textures and mineralogy encountered in the upper parts of epithermal gold deposits. Based on the epithermal gold deposit model, higher grade zones of gold and silver mineralogy occur at depth. The Mallery gold system is intermittently exposed over an area 800 x 700 metres.

Based on vein composition, textures, and estimated pressure and temperature calculations, it is assumed that Mallery is an epithermal gold system. (See diagram A on our website to view Mallery conceptually as an epithermal gold system: http://www.uraniumnorth.com/i/pdf/Epithermal-Conceptual-model-for-Mallery.pdf)

"This drilling tests the upper parts of a possible epithermal gold system and intersected significant widths of mineralization. More drilling will evaluate Mallery at depth, where higher grade zones of mineralization commonly occur in these types of systems," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources.

This initial five hole drill program totalling 750 metres tested mineralization near surface and laterally along strike. The program successfully outlined mineralization below surface. The next program will be designed to focus on identifying higher grade zones of mineralization at depth.
