Visible pitchblende veins containing 1.19% to 7.92 % U(3)O(8) found at the West Target property



    TSX.V: UCR

    TORONTO, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Uranium City Resources Inc. ("UCR"), is pleased
to report the following assay results from eight grab samples taken at its
West Target property located in the Beaverlodge / Uranium City Mining District
in north-west Saskatchewan.
    Prospecting and drilling work along a NE trend of EM conductors at the
West Target property encountered an area of bedrock extending over several
meters containing visible pitchblende veins of widths of up to 45cm.
    Radiometric prospecting in the surrounding area has now identified
anomalous radioactivity over a wide zone 500m in length by 100m in width along
a NE trending fault structure. This radioactive area includes the Mic showing
previously explored by exploration and mining company Eldorado Nuclear.
Several old trenches and evidence of drilling work (diamond and percussion
drill holes) can be seen throughout this area.
    Eight grab samples were collected in the prospected area from a bedrock
outcrop at the Mic Showing, in an old trench and also along a radioactive
fracture. Seven out of the eight grab samples show high U(3)O(8) values above
1%.

    Samples were analyzed at Actlabs of Ancaster, Ontario, using the fusion-
    RF method of analysis for ore samples.
    

    Drilling has now started in this area to define the extension of these
U-rich veins laterally and at depth. In addition, trenching and further
prospecting work is being planned.
