Uranium North Reports Scintillometer Readings Indicate the Amer Lake Main Zone Deposit Extends to the Southeast

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2011) - Uranium North Resource Corp. ("Uranium North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UNR) reports that the 8th hole of a planned 20 hole program is currently being drilled on the 100% owned Amer Lake deposit located in Nunavut. The 2011 expansion drilling program is focused on the southeastern extension of the Main Zone resource*. This area is adjacent to and around drill hole UNR-15 of the resource which returned the highest grades in the 2008 drill program.

Based on anomalous scintillometer readings from samples collected down hole, the mineralized horizon extends southeast of the defined resource*. Radioactive zones have been identified in all completed holes with the exception of one hole that was lost before reaching the target depth.

"The Main Zone appears to be extending to the southeast as anticipated. Depending on the analytical results confirming the U308 values, we hope to see a significant increase in the Main Zone resource," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Uranium North Resources.

Samples will be submitted to the laboratory for analysis. Upon completion of the program and assay analysis, the drill results will be used to calculate an updated resource estimate.

For drill hole locations (See Map: http://www.uraniumnorth.com/s/AmerLake-Main.asp) on the Amer Lake Main Zone page. The 8 drill holes include A1, A, B, C, N, H, I and J.

Alan Sexton from Geovector Management Inc. is the acting Qualified Person 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.
