Uracan continues to intercept large widths of mineralization while expanding
the Double S Zone

TX-V: URC

VANCOUVER, Jan. 13 /CNW/ - Uracan Resources Ltd. (the "Company") is pleased to report on assay results from the last 6 drill holes from the 15 drill hole program completed during its Summer 2009 diamond drill program at its 100% owned North Shore Project in Quebec. These assay results continue to prove the successful expansion of the Double S Zone along strike in the southeast. Overall size of the Double S zone has increased to 1.5 kilometres in length and up to 750 meters in width and the zone still remains open in all directions.

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 9.0 meters grading 213 ppm (0.021%) U3O8 to 52.5 meters grading 110 ppm (0.011%) U3O8.

Double S Drilling

A total of 4,181.3 meters in 15 diamond drill holes was completed from June to September of 2009. Surfactant's summer drilling objective was achieved by expanding the Double S zone mineralization to the southeast. Of the remaining drill holes, all have intercepted significant mineralization. These include:

    
    -   52.5 meters of 111 ppm U3O8 (0.011%) in SS-09-102
    -   29.5 meters of 134 ppm U3O8 (0.013%) in SS-09-99
    -   26.0 meters of 127 ppm U3O8 (0.013%) in SS-09-101
    -   22.6 meters of 128 ppm U3O8 (0.013%) in SS-09-97
    

A summary of selected mineralized zones from the returned assays is included below:

A map showing the Double S drill hole locations can be found at http://www.uracan.ca/i/maps/DoubleS-10k-geology.pdf. Drill hole coordinates and a complete listing of assay results will be posted on Surfactant's updated website: www.uracan.ca.

An updated NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, based on the new drilling completed in 2009, will be compiled later in Q1/10.

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 2mm, 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.
