Uranium North Reports Drill Program Underway on the Mallery Gold-Silver Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2011) - Uranium North Resource Corp. ("Uranium North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UNR) reports that the drill program has commenced on the Company's 100% owned Mallery gold-silver project in Nunavut. Approximately 1000 metres of drilling are planned for the project.

On Mallery, there are four outcrop exposures with mineralized veins over an 800 by 800 metre area. Geophysical and geochemical data suggests that the areas could be part of one large system. Drill holes are planned to test the continuity of mineralization on the four areas plus a fifth geophysical target. Please view the new Mallery project video on our company website at www.uraniumnorth.com.

"The accompanying video presentation and map describing the program demonstrate why we are excited about Mallery. It is a program designed to evaluate the continuity, grade and width of high grade gold and silver veins. We are ultimately testing for the presence of a deposit with open pit mining potential," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources.

The 2011 Mallery drill program will test the width and strike characteristics of the mineralized zones, evaluate the nature and distribution of gold in veins and host rock and test the distribution and frequency of the mineralized veins. An attempt will be made to determine the geological relationship between the resistivity highs and gold mineralization. A detailed description of the drill holes and a location map are posted on the Uranium North website www.uraniumnorth.com/s/goldprojects.asp.

In addition to drilling, detailed geophysical ground surveying and prospecting are planned. A significant gold grain anomaly that has been identified 3 kilometres to the south will also be investigated.

Drilling is being carried out by Lantech Drilling Services Inc. using a heli-portable BBS 25A diamond drill. Drill core will be logged on site by a geologist. 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.
