Star Uranium Corp. and United Uranium Corp. Contract Geoscience Company to Conduct Exploration Program on Fort a la Corne Diamond Properties

SASKATOON, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - United Uranium Corp. (UUC - TSX Venture) and Star Uranium Corp. (SUV - TSX Venture) (collectively the "Companies") today announced that they have entered into a consulting agreement with Apex Geoscience ("Apex") of Edmonton, Alberta to conduct an analysis of their jointly held Fort a la Corne diamond properties in Saskatchewan (the "Claims").  The Claims are situated immediately adjacent to the eastern border of the Shore Gold Inc. ("Shore") (SGF.T) Fort a la Corne project.  Apex will initially analyze airborne geophysical data to identify potential kimberlites or related intrusions. 

Kyle Kozuska, President of United Uranium Corp. and Star Uranium Corp. stated, "We are very pleased to be working with a world class geological company like Apex.  Apex has the experience and technical resources to move our project forward."

The Claims are owned 50/50 by United Uranium Corp. and Star Uranium Corp., and include the claims that were formerly disputed by Shore Gold Inc. (the "Disputed Claims").

The litigation over the Disputed Claims centered on whether the representative of the Companies or the representative Shore was first in line at the Department of Mineral Resources of the Government of Saskatchewan on June 2, 2003 and entitled to register the Disputed Claims.  In total, the Disputed Claims covered 33,196 hectares.

In the March 1, 2007 judgment of the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench, Mr. Justice Barclay ruled in favor of the Companies in deciding that they were entitled, in priority to Shore, to register the Disputed Claims.  On March 30, 2007 Shore appealed the ruling, thereby halting any exploration on the Disputed Claims.

On July 10, 2008, the Companies were advised that the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal had dismissed Shore's appeal, clearing the way for the Companies to rely on their registrations relating to the Disputed Claims.

Kyle Kozuska stated, "We are very excited to start the exploration of our Fort a la Corne properties.  The stabilization of the broad market and recovery from the recent recession were the indicators that management was looking for to initiate its exploration program.  This initial phase will be funded entirely through internal resources and we anticipate the Companies will be well positioned to capitalize on further strengthening of the sector.  The proximity to Shore's Orion North and Orion South kimberlite fields makes this an exceptionally exciting project."
