Utah Uranium Confirms Renewals of All Mining Claims, Continues Negotiations on Joint Venture Agreements

MOAB, UT--(Marketwire - September 13, 2007) - Utah Uranium Corp. (the "Company") (OTCBB: UTUC) wishes to announce that all currently held uranium mineral claims in the states of Utah and Colorado have been renewed and will remain in good standing for an additional year with both the local County Recorder's offices and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

As an ongoing requirement of holding mineral claims on public lands, rights holders are required to annually renew their mineral claims with both local County Recorder offices and with State offices of the BLM on or before September 1st of each year, otherwise forfeiture occurs. During this week, both documentation and funds were forwarded to County and BLM agencies to renew all of the mineral claims located in both Utah and Colorado. Specifically, the Company has renewed their interests in the "Hat" and "Hoopie" projects in Colorado, and the "Family Butte," "Whale" and "Pinto" claims in Utah.

Ongoing Activities:

The Company's focus has been to accumulate several past-producing or highly prospective Uranium properties in the Four Corners area of the U.S., with the intention of developing these projects through joint venture agreements, thus minimizing development costs to the Company while maintaining substantial interests in the projects. The Company has been negotiating with numerous third parties who have expressed interests in joint venturing one or more of the Company's current projects. The Company has signed in excess of six NDAs (Non Disclosure Agreements) with third parties in order to protect the Company's knowledge and interest in these projects, while also affording the Company protection from "claim jumping" due to "area of influence" clauses in the NDAs.

With a marked increase in interest being shown in the Company's projects in recent weeks from a broader range of potential joint venture partners, management feels confident that the signing of one or more joint venture agreements will occur shortly. In particular, multiple strong expressions of interest in joint venturing the Company's "Pinto" project. The Pinto project consists of approximately 7,000 acres in the Henry Mountain Syncline of East Central Utah.

The Company acquired the Pinto claims from Christian (Ted) Murer, P.Geo, the prospector geologist who conceptualized, discovered and currently holds a production royalty on the Tony M mine. Mr. Murer assembled the Pinto uranium claims package using the same data and methodology elsewhere in the basin where identical geologic settings as the Tony M and Bullfrog mines are postulated, being on strike and to the south, targeting the down dip accumulation of uranium and vanadium within the Salt Wash member of the Jurassic Morrison formation.

The Company recently announced (see NR August 14, 2007) that a notice of work submitted by the company regarding a 50-hole drill program on the Pinto claims has been approved by both the Bureau of Land Management and the Utah State Ministry of Natural Resources, with final permits to be issued upon receipt of the reclamation bond. The drilling plan is to drill 20 initial holes to define the north-south trend of ore accumulations within the various sands of the Salt Wash Member.

With the current status of negotiations on joint venture agreements on this project, the Company anticipates filing of the reclamation bond and commencement of drilling activities on the Pinto within the next 30 - 60 days.
