TSX Venture Exchange Approves Strategic Resources Option Agreement



    TSX.V: UVR

    REGINA, SK, June 16 /CNW/ - Strategic Resources Inc. ("UVR" or "the
Company "), is pleased to announce the TSX Venture Exchange has approved the
previously announced Option Agreement (see PR of June 2, 2009) with Uranium
Energy Corp (NYSE-Amex:   UEC) under which the Company can earn up to a 60%
interest in 20 lode mining claims (~413 acres ) located in Catron County, New
Mexico. These claims are situated in an area of high-grade uranium
mineralization reportedly drilled by Kerr-McGee in the 1970's. Under this
Option Agreement, UVR can also earn up to a 60% interest in 1120 acres of
state land leases located in eastern Apache County, Arizona. This land package
is situated five miles west of the New Mexico state line and ten miles from
Springerville, Arizona and covers an area of relatively shallow, high grade
uranium mineralization drilled by Occidental Minerals in the 1970's.
    Pursuant to the Option Agreement, the Company must complete the following
items to earn an initial 50% interest in these projects:

    Upon formal execution of the Option Agreement, the Company must make a
cash payment to UEC of US$7,500 and issue 500,000 common shares of the Company
to UEC.

    Year 1

    UVR must issue 500,000 shares to UEC and undertake a $US 25,000
exploration and development work commitment

    Year 2

    The Company must issue 500,000 shares to UEC and undertake a $US 200,000
exploration and development work commitment

    Year 3

    The Company must issue 500,000 shares to UEC and undertake a $US 200,000
exploration and development work commitment

    Year 4

    The Company must issue 500,000 shares to UEC and undertake a $US 200,000
exploration and development work commitment

    Year 5

    The Company must undertake a $US 200,000 exploration and development work
commitment

    Upon completion of the above share issuances and work commitments, UVR
will then be eligible to earn an additional 10% interest (taking its total
interest up to 60%) by issuing an additional 1,000,000 common shares of the
Company to UEC.
    Effective as of the third anniversary of the effective date of the Option
Agreement, UEC shall have a "back-in" right to acquire an 80% interest in
these claims by paying UVR the equivalent of three times the exploration
expenditures incurred by UVR, two and a half times cash payments paid by the
Company to UEC incurred and two times the value of common shares issued to UEC
pursuant to the Option Agreement.
    Both of these project areas strongly compliment the Company's ongoing
Baca and White Mesa projects located in Catron County, New Mexico.
