Diamond Recovered from Anomalous Till Sample from Overburden Drilling Program on United Uranium and Star Uranium Corp jointly (50/50) owned Peace River Diamond Project.



    SASKATOON, Aug. 7 /CNW/ - United Uranium Corp. (UUC-TSX Venture) and Star
Uranium Corp. (SUV-TSX Venture) ("the companies") wish to report additional
results from the drilling program disclosed in a press released dated July 3,
2008. Five samples of cuttings from the hole, which returned extremely high
numbers of kimberlitic indicator minerals were subjected to caustic fusion,
and resulted in the recovery of one diamond on the 0.15 mm screen. The unit
from which the diamond was recovered was a basal till unit at a vertical depth
of 42.7 - 54.9 m. This upgrades the proximal source of the indicators from a
kimberlite to a diamondiferous kimberlite.

    The Qualified Person for the Project is Paul A. Hawkins, P.Eng. reports:

    Detailed results of the extremely anomalous hole are encouraging and
likely reflect a nearby diamondiferous kimberlite pipe.

    Sample size was nominally over 20 kg and was obtained during a regional
overburden-drilling program in March 2008. Drilling method was rotary 
air/water mixture with normal circulation. Given the normal circulation there
was likely some carry over from units higher in the hole. Samples were
processed at SRC, which is accredited to ISO/IEC Guide 17025. Sieve analysis
for the caustic fusion is as follows:

    The significance of this discovery is that it upgrades the source of the
dispersal train of indicators from a kimberlite to a diamondiferous
kimberlite. Recently completed ground geophysics has defined a possible nearby
target but further geophysics is required to better define its character,
shape and overall size. The immediate area is accessible by an existing gravel
road however other areas are currently winter access only. Planning is
currently underway for a more extensive geophysical and drilling program.
