Western Uranium Corporation Announces Preliminary Drill Results From Kings Valley

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 21, 2009) - Western Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:WUC) ("the Company") announces that follow-up drilling in the Albisu area at the northern end of the Kings Valley Project has intercepted widespread low-grade gold mineralization. From May through the end of June, the Company has completed eleven core holes for a total of 3,320 meters in the area of ALB-04. ALB-04 intercepted 12 grams of gold over 1.5 metres from 103.7m to 105.2m and 41 metres from 154.0m to 195.1m that averaged 0.66 g/t gold (Press release October 29, 2008). Drilling has intercepted geochemically anomalous and intensely altered volcanic rocks suggesting a large mineralizing system has been active in the area. Incomplete assay results have been received for a number of the holes. The results received to date are highly encouraging and given the widespread nature and continuity of the gold mineralization suggests that more prospective areas of the system may not have been identified to date.

Low grade, wide intercepts of gold with scattered narrower zones of higher grade have been encountered in many of the holes. The gold occurs in hydrothermally altered brecciated volcanic rocks that exhibit strong argillization, silicification and sulphide veining characteristic of high level epithermal systems. Occurring with the gold and throughout the holes are geochemically elevated intervals of silver, arsenic, cobalt, chromium, mercury, molybdenum, and vanadium. Additional field work is underway to re-evaluate the surface geology using the data from the drilling to assist in better defining potential mineralizing controls to focus the next phase of drilling.

PARTIAL RESULTS are listed below with additional results to follow in 4-6 weeks.

Although the levels of gold are low, the widespread elevated levels of gold along with the other elements that are elevated above background levels suggest that with additional exploration a gold discovery may be possible.

WUC QA/QC Program

Quality Control and Assurance for all sampling projects at Kings Valley is under the direction of Mr. John Rice a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 standards. Core samples are collected daily from the drill site and transported back to the field office where WUC personnel photograph each box. WUC geologists then log the core noting rock types and alteration. The core is then split and packaged in sealed heavy weight polyethylene bags. Core samples are delivered by WUC employees to American Assay Laboratories located in Sparks, Nevada.

American Assay Laboratory's quality control system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025:1999. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the use of reagent blanks, reference samples, and sample duplicates. Additionally, WUC selects duplicate samples which are then submitted to a third party lab for separate confirmation analysis.
