    Trading Symbol: (TSX - V): URC

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 10 /CNW/ - Uracan Resources Ltd. (the "Company") is
pleased to announce that it has made the final payment of $1,000,000 to
Sheridan Platinum Group Ltd. (the "Vendor") to obtain an undivided 100%
interest in the 903 square kilometre North Shore Property, subject to a net
smelter royalty retained by the Vendor as previously disclosed.
    In addition the Company is pleased to announce that it has staked
additional claims in the North Shore Property area. An airborne geophysics and
radiometrics program was completed during the summer of 2007 over the
north-eastern portion of the claim group. Numerous new large uranium anomalies
have been outlined in this radiometric survey, several of which extended
beyond the existing property boundaries. A map showing the new claims can be
viewed on the Uracan website: www.uracan.ca.
    Approximately 175 square kilometres of new claims have been staked to
cover these areas of potential uranium mineralization lying outside the
previously existing claim boundaries. The current total surface area covered
by the old and new claims comprising the North Shore Property is approximately
1,075 square kilometres. Further work is planned during 2008 to evaluate the
uranium anomalies outlined in these newly staked areas.
