China to Prohibit Export of Heavy Rare Earths Particular to Bokan
Date: August 18, 2009


August 18, 2009 â Halifax, Nova Scotia - Ucore Uranium (TSX.V:UCU, the âCompanyâ) is pleased to comment on yesterdayâs announcement by Chinaâs Ministry of Information Technology (Beijing; 17-Aug-09; as reported in Metal Pages).

According to the Rare Earths Industry Development Plan, 2009-2015 (the âREE Planâ) released yesterday, the Chinese government intends to tighten its administration on the production of rare earths over the next six years. Beijing will also restrict the export of rare earths over this period, with the annual export quota for REEâs to be contained to below 35,000 tpy.

More significantly for Ucore, Beijing has stipulated that the heavy rare earths (HREEâs) dysprosium, terbium, thulium, lutetium and yttrium will not just be cut back, but will be fully prohibited from export under the new REE Plan.

According to a recently released report by Toronto-based Pope & Company (July 2009; âPopeâ), Ucore is one of only two companies in North America with a prospective deposit that hosts a comprehensive suite of HREEâs. Further, Ucore is the only such company with an HREE-enriched deposit located within the United States. The U.S. is one of the worldâs largest consumers of HREEâs, with a significant stake in sustaining access to these critical technology metals after the Chinese export prohibition comes into effect. A link to a summary of the Pope findings is as follows (Source: Pope & Company, 2009):

**Click Here**

Based on the calculations of a 1989 US Bureau of Mines study (Warner and Barker, USBM OFR 33-89), Bokan houses the largest estimated HREE deposit in North America. The USBM report sets out an estimated 374M lbs of rare earth oxides at Bokan (non-43-101 compliant). The marked skew toward heavy rare earth content at Bokan makes this one of the few prospective HREE sites in the world, outside of the currently producing south China ionic clays.

The HREE project at Bokan â Dotson Ridge is operated by Rare Earth One, Ucoreâs wholly owned U.S.- based operating unit. On June 15, 2009, Ucore reported one of the more significant HREE drill core intercepts on record from a North American - based heavy rare earth exploration site, with a Total Rare Earth Oxide (TREO) grade of 11.5% over 2.5 metres, an impressive 95% of which was comprised of HREEâs. The Company has commenced its 2009 Ground Survey and Drill Program, with new assay results anticipated in the near term.

âThe recent events in China are a remarkable development for Ucore,â said Jim McKenzie, president and CEO of Ucore. âWith one of the most prospective HREE sites in North America and one of the few prospective HREE targets in the world outside of south China itself, the prohibition of HREE exports from China is a significant event for us. Ucore is now working to generate additional near term drill results along two HREE prospective trends, now estimated to be at least ten kilometers in combined length.â

The term ârare earth elementsâ is a trade name for the 15 members of the lanthanoid series, plus yttrium, characterized by similar physical and chemical properties, and which are experiencing increasingly high demand in a wide variety of high technology applications. Compared to the light rare earths (LREEâs), the HREEâs are significantly more valuable, with approximately 97% of all HREEâs production originating from the south China ionic clays. Rare earth grades are usually reported as calculated rare earth oxides.

Readers are cautioned that the resource estimates quoted by the US Bureau of Mines were prepared prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 and are therefore of a historical nature. The historical resource estimate does not use the resource categories stipulated in Sections 1.2 and 1.3 of National Instrument 43-101. Ucore believes that the terms âresourceâ and \"resources\" are used differently from the use of those terms in NI 43-101. Ucore does not have, and is not aware of, any more recent resource estimates which conform to the standards prescribed in NI 43-101. Ucore has not done the work necessary to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimate and it has not been verified by a Qualified Person. The Company is not treating the historical resource estimate as a NI 43-101 defined resource or reserve, and therefore the historical resource estimate should not be relied upon.

Background:

Ucore Uranium Inc. is a junior exploration company focused on establishing REE and uranium resources through exploration and property acquisition. With multiple projects, Ucoreâs primary focus is the Rare Earth One operated Bokan â Dotson Ridge rare earth element and uranium project. The project is located on the southern part of the Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska, with excellent deep water access and proximity to major sea and rail shipping routes across North America and to Asia.

Ucore Uranium Inc.: Independent Review of USBM Metallurgical Study Confirms 96% Separation of Bokan HREE to be NI 43-101 Compliant

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 3, 2009) - Ucore Uranium (TSX VENTURE:UCU) is pleased to report the results of an independent review of a U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) metallurgical study which reported a significant 96% separation and recovery of yttrium from Bokan Mountain (Green and Harbuck; 1996). Yttrium can be considered a proxy for the entire "Yttrium Group of Lanthanoids", otherwise called the heavy rare earth elements (HREE's).

Ucore engaged the services of Mountain States R&D International of (MSRDI) to review the USBM (currently the USGS) study with respect to NI 43-101 compliance. MSRDI`s Roshan Bapphu, PhD, P.E. AZ examined the USBM study and found the methodologies and conclusions contained therein to satisfy the NI 43-101 standards which came into effect after the USBM study was released in 1996. MSRDI is located in Vail, Arizona, and is an accredited research facility with specific experience in rare earth element metallurgy, separation and recovery technologies.

The Green and Harbuck metallurgical study was the culmination of a large scale research project commissioned by the USBM to examine the metallurgy of the Bokan Mountain heavy rare earth elements with a particular view to the recovery of yttrium. The research, conducted under authority of the Federal Bureau of Mines Research Facility in Salt Lake City, involved leaching technology as a means of metallurgical separation. Yttrium recovery correlates to the prospective recovery of other valuable HREE`s such as dysprosium, terbium, ytterbium and lutetium. Additionally, the USBM metallurgical separation methodologies correlate to the recovery of light rare earth elements (LREE's) also present in the Bokan samples.

An executive summary of the USBM study reads as follows:

"The Bokan Mountain area on Prince of Wales Island, AK, contains vast quantities of heavy rare earth minerals. To lessen the US dependence on foreign sources, the US Bureau of Mines investigated yttrium recovery from this ore.

By sulfating the ore at 250 degrees C for 1 hr at an H2SO4: ore ratio of 1:1 and then water leaching the sulfated material for 1 hr at 20% solids and 25 degrees C, over 74% of the yttrium, cerium, and lanthumum were solubilized. Solvent extraction, using a synergistic combination of OPAP and DEHPA, selectively loaded 100% of the yttrium.

Yttrium was stripped directly as a solid using a 2M, 35 degrees C NaOH liquor. When the OPAP/DEHPA mixture was tested in a continuous SX circuit, yttrium loading and stripping were 100% and 96% respectively. The organic showed excellent recyclabilty properties with minimal solvent loss."

A full copy of the USBM study is available through the following URL:

http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/GreenHarbuckUSBM1996.pdf

"Metallurgical separation is an important aspect of rare earth deposit feasibility analysis, and has been a significant impediment to many prospective rare earth sites worldwide," said Jim McKenzie, President and CEO of Ucore. "The discovery of usable metallurgical formulas can consume a significant portion of the development cycle of a REE mine, and can be an elusive objective. This USBM funded metallurgical study, particularly in view of its NI 43-101 compliance, is a unique and valuable asset to Bokan-Dotson Ridge and greatly expedites the feasibility cycle for one of the few prospective heavy rare earth deposits outside of the currently producing south China clays."

The US Geological Survey (USGS; formerly the USBM) is a bureau of the US Department of the Interior, a federal agency with a mission that includes the identification of geological resources critical to the U.S. military, industrial and technological complex. The Bokan heavy rare earth deposit has received the increasing involvement of this bureau, commencing with a 1989 resource study (Barker & Warner; USBM OFR 33-89), and continuing with a large scale metallurgical study (Green and Harbuck; USBM 1996), in addition to the 2009 USGS-funded mineral characterization research program now in progress (see Ucore Press Release: May 27, 2009). The USGS articulates with the U.S. Department of Defense in matters related to strategic materials identification, the latter of which has appeared before a 2009 Congressional subcommittee addressing concerns related to obtaining a secure domestic supply of rare earth elements (R. Lowden; Senior Materials Analyst; US DOD; July 2009).

Ucore Uranium Inc. is a junior exploration company focused on establishing REE and uranium resources through exploration and property acquisition. With multiple projects, Ucore's primary focus is the Rare Earth One-operated Bokan - Dotson Ridge rare earth element and uranium project.

Ucore Provides Update on Bokan Drill Program



October 20, 2009 - Ucore Uranium Inc. (TSX-V: UCU), (“Ucore” or the “Company”) is pleased to
provide an update on the 2009 drill program currently in progress at its Bokan-Dotson Ridge rare
earth project in Alaska.



Since the commencement of drilling on September 8, Ucore has completed 25 holes, comprising
2443 metres of core. Processed core is being forwarded on a routine basis to Eco Tech
Laboratories of Kamloops, B.C., for assay. Drilling continues on site, and assays will be released
as soon as received and confirmed.



“This has been our most productive drill program at Bokan to date, with more linear metres
obtained over a shorter period than ever before,” said Jim McKenzie, President and CEO of
Ucore. “With an initial goal of 2000 metres for the season, we’ve already surpassed our
expectations, delivering excess metres, and well within budget. As a result, we’ve elected to
extend the program to obtain additional holes at depth and along strike. With that in mind, assay
turnaround from the lab has been slower than originally indicated, and we’re working to rectify
this. It’s fair to say that even with delays, the new assay facility is anticipated to deliver results
significantly faster than any alternative facility we’ve used in previous years, so we have to
manage our expectations accordingly.”

Alaska Senator Weighs in on Rare Earths





October 21, 2009 - Ucore Uranium Inc. (TSX-V: UCU), (“Ucore” or the “Company”) is pleased to
report that the Senior U.S. Senator from the State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski, has commented on
the need for the advancement of domestic mining of rare earths to meet the ongoing clean
energy needs of the United States. Senator Murkowski (R-Alaska) is the ranking member on the
U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (CENR), located in Washington, DC.
CENR is a standing committee of the U.S. Senate, tasked with legislative matters related to
national energy production and procurement, the activities of which are a significant bellwether
of emerging federal energy policy. An overview of the mandate of the Committee is available at
the following link:



http://energy.senate.gov/public/

In a commentary issued October 19, 2009, Senator Murkowski said of current US energy policy:
“We risk a future in which wind turbines, solar panels, advanced batteries and
geothermal steam turbines are not made in the USA, but somewhere else … (and)
we have slowly but surely surrendered the front end of the clean energy supply
chain.” The Senator speaks directly to the need for a stable domestic supply of rare
earth elements and resources crucial to green technology, emphasizing strategic
mining as an economic driver for the U.S. The complete commentary is available at
the following link:

http://www.rollcall.com/features/Policy-Briefing_Energy-
2009/energy_environment/39554-1.html?type=printer_friendly

“It’s encouraging to see such direct geopolitical support for domestic rare earth
production at some of the highest levels of U.S. government,” said Jim McKenzie,
President and CEO of Ucore Uranium. “With Bokan being the only known significant
occurrence of rare earths in Alaska and one of most prospective HREE deposits in the US,
the outlook for project advancement, facilitation and permitting could not be better.”

As Alaska’s senior representative to Washington, Senator Murkowski’s support for
REE production echoes prior endorsements of rare earth production in the state. In
1998, a Resolution was ratified at the Alaska State Legislature, supporting the
advancement of research and production of HREE (primarily yttrium) at Bokan for US
high speed rail, linear induction and military applications (Resolution 56; ASL 1998).
Details of the Resolution are available for viewing at the following link:

Click Here.

Prior to this, rare earth mineralization and metallurgy at Bokan had received detailed
research and study by the USBM and the USGS, now grandfathered into the US
Department of the Interior (see Ucore press releases: August 18, 2009 and Sept 3,
2009 for additional details on USGS/USBM research and resource estimates for
Bokan). The USGS continues to support rare earth research at Bokan, with its 2009
research grant to study REE mineral characterization at the site (see Ucore press
release: May 27, 2009).
