UCR Drilling Increases the Size Potential of the East Target



    TSX.V: UCR

    KIRKLAND LAKE, ON, March 27 /CNW/ - (Uranium City Resources Inc -
UCR:TSX.V, A0F7F5:Berlin) ("UCR" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the
most recent assay results of fourteen drill holes from the East Target,
located in the Uranium City Mining District ("UCMD") of Northern Saskatchewan.
UCR previously released results from the first four holes (please see UCR
release of 08-Jan-07), a second batch of 10 holes (please see UCR release of
29-Jan-07), results from a third batch of three drill holes (please see UCR
release of 13-Feb-07), and has results pending from the remaining holes from
the 2007 Phase Two drilling campaign.
    Highlights from these new holes include: Hole FT07-19 which returned
0.052% U(3)O(8) over a core length of 2.00 meters; Hole FT07-22 which returned
0.234% U(3)O(8) over a core length of 1.80 meters; Hole FT07-23 which gave
0.062% U(3)O(8) over a core length of 4.00 meters; Hole FT07-27 yielded 0.102%
U(3)O(8) over a core length of 7.00 meters; Hole FT07-29 returned 0.200%
U(3)O(8) over a core length of 4.00 meters which includes 0.484% U(3)O(8) over
a core length of 1.00 meter.

    Commenting on these recent results, UCR's CEO, Bob Kasner stated "We are
very encouraged by these latest results. The East Zone has expanded far beyond
our original estimates in length and depth. The mineralization is consistent
with that from historical mining in the Uranium City area. Geological features
such as "pinching and swelling" along strike and down dip are also consistent
with historical data. We now have enough drill data from the East Target to
start a 43-101 resource calculation and plan to commence this effort shortly."

    The core lengths are actual lengths as drilled and have not been adjusted
for the true width of the mineralized zones. Hole FT07-25 (length = 180.00m
and dip of -45 degrees) and FT07-31 (length = 150.00m and dip of -45 degrees)
had no significant mineralization.
    SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, completed all
analyses using multi-acid partial and total digestion with ICP-OES analytical
finish. UCR converted from ppm (parts per million) to percentage U(3)O(8).

    Drilling is presently on-going with the drilling rig situated on the ice
at Verna Lake which is located immediately south of the East Target. The
objective of this portion of the overall drilling program is to define the
extension of the Uranium mineralization at depth as it dips toward the St
Louis Fault.

    Exploration Potential - UCR property

    In total, Uranium City Resources holds 10 exploration properties in the
Uranium City Mining District ("UCMD"). In order to evaluate the potential for
Uranium mineralization at some of these other properties, various sampling
programs were carried out between September 2006 and the present. Geochemical
sampling programs and radiometric surveys were done at the East Target,
Quartzite Ridge and Gunnar properties. Rock samples were submitted to SRC
Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Twigs from trees
sampled as part of the geo-chemical program were submitted to Actlabs in
Ancaster, Ontario. Sampling was performed by UCR personal under the direction
of Dr. Serge Nadeau.

    1)  At the East Target property, twigs from more than 1250 trees were
        collected and results have partially been received.

    2)  At the Quartzite Ridge property, a geochemical sampling program
        including twig samples from 965 trees, 422 soil samples and 85 rocks
        was carried out. All assays have been now received and are under
        review. In addition a radiometric survey was performed at the
        Quartzite Ridge property. Results are currently being evaluated.

    3)  At the Gunnar property, the geochemical sampling program included 35
        rock samples and twig samples from 422 trees. All results were
        received and are under currently under review. Radiometric survey
        results are currently being evaluated.
    

    A detailed press release will be issued in the near future to discuss and
elaborate on these results.
    Additional geological mapping and prospecting at these three properties
is planned in the coming months.

    About Uranium City Resources:
    Uranium City Resources has a number of 100% owned uranium projects within
the Uranium City Mining District, an area with over 30 years of past mining
and nearly 70 million pounds of uranium production. Since 2005, the Company
has spent over C$3 million exploring its properties and has outlined numerous
uranium targets. Recent drill programs have confirmed the presence of uranium
mineralization and drilling is to continue throughout 2007.

    Forward looking statements:
    This news release contains certain forward-looking statements. These
forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties
beyond UCR's control or prediction and could cause actual events or results to
