VANCOUVER, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - Uracan Resources Ltd. (the "Company") is pleased to report on assay results from 9 of the 15 drill holes completed during its Summer 2009 diamond drill program at its 100% owned North Shore Project in Quebec. These assay results confirm the successful expansion of the Double S Zone along strike in the southeast. Mineralization at Double S remains open along strike and both updip and downdip from the areas of current drilling. Overall size of the Double S zone has increased to 1500 meters in length and up to 750 meters in width.

Uranium mineralization on the property continues to occur as broad multiple stacked mineralized zones hosted by granites and pegmatites, with significant drilled widths ranging from 9 meters to 74.15 meters. Uranium grades range from 96 ppm (0.010%) to 345 ppm (0.035%) U3O8.

Double S Drilling

A total of 4,181.3 meters in 15 diamond drill holes was completed from June to September of this year. Uracan's summer drilling objective was achieved by expanding the Double S zone mineralization to the southeast. Of the 9 drill holes with returned assays, 100% of the holes have intercepted significant near surface mineralization. These drill length intersections include:

    
    -   141.2 ppm (0.014%) U3O8 over 53.0 m from surface in SS-09-88,
    -   120.3 ppm (0.012%) U3O8 over 74.15 m from 107.8 m in SS-09-90,
    -   101.0 ppm (0.010%) U3O8 over 41.18 m from 161.8 m in SS-09-91,
    -   345.1 ppm (0.035%) U3O8 over 22.03 m from 22.27 m in SS-09-92,
    -   96.0 ppm (0.010%) U3O8 over 53.0 m from 160.4 m in SS-09-95

    Assay results from the remaining 6 holes will be released once they have
been received. A summary of selected mineralized zones from the returned
assays is included below:

    * Drill hole SS-09-97 has only partial results returned to date. Full
    results will be released once they have been received.
    

Drill hole location information and a complete listing of assay results will be posted on the Uracan website: www.uracan.ca.

An updated NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, based on the new drilling completed in 2009, will be compiled once all results have been received later this year.

Grandroy and Turgeon Est

Drill results from Grandroy and Turgeon Est are pending and will be released once they have been received.

QA/QC

Samples were shipped by company personnel in sealed containers to Chemex Laboratories of Val D'Or, Quebec for analysis. Chemex is the laboratory facility used for all assays from the North Shore Property program. Samples are weighed and catalogued before sample preparation. The samples are crushed to 70% less than 2 mm, split and then pulverized to 85% of the sample being less than 75 (micro)m. All samples are assayed using ICP-MS with analysis completed for 47 elements.

A QA/QC program was implemented as part of the sampling procedure for the drill program. Field duplicates, field blanks and certified standards were inserted into the sample stream with at least one blank, one duplicate and one standard inserted per group of 40 samples sent to the laboratory. The laboratory also has an extensive in house QA/QC system as part of their quality control system.
