Uranium North Mobilizes for Drilling at the Amer Lake Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - Uranium North Resource Corp. ("Uranium North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UNR) announces that it has mobilized fuel and drilling supplies to the Amer Lake property in Nunavut. Contracts and permits have been finalized for the program. The drill and crew are expected to arrive on site the first week of June to begin drilling operations.

"This is a low cost program that will attempt to expand the Main Zone deposit by 100%," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources.

The planned program will begin with approximately 2,500 metres of reverse circulation drilling. The drill program will test a southern extension of the Main Zone deposit where previous drill results returned up to 0.29% U308 (see news release dated January 14, 2009). The Company has mobilized sufficient fuel and supplies to the region providing the option to increase the program to 5,000 metres.

Bruce Kienlen, P.Geol and/or Graham Gill, P.Geo, are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 reviewing data for this project.
