UEX Commences 2007 Winter Exploration Program at Black Lake Uranium Project

     Trading Symbol: UEX-TSX
     VANCOUVER, Feb. 27 /CNW/ - UEX Corporation ("UEX") is pleased to announce
that the winter 2007 program of Diamond drilling and geophysical surveying has
commenced at the Black Lake Uranium Project ("Black Lake", or the "Project"),
located in the northern Athabasca Basin near Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan,
Canada. Black Lake was the site of a uranium discovery by UEX during 2004 in
drill hole BL-18 (see UEX News Release, October 12, 2004). The Project is a
joint venture between UEX, the operator, holding a 87.2% interest, and AREVA
Resources Canada Inc. ("AREVA"), holding a 12.8% interest, as of December 31,
     2006 Summer/Fall Exploration Results
     The 2006 summer/fall exploration program consisted of a 23-hole Diamond
drilling program totaling 10,830 metres, with one hole abandoned due to
technical problems. The drilling program tested the extent of mineralization
encountered in discovery hole BL-18, and continued systematic testing of the
graphitic conductors within the Project area that are interpreted to be
prospective for uranium mineralization.
     A ground geophysical survey consisting of 77.0 kilometres of pole-pole
resistivity was carried out along the Black Lake conductive system to outline
areas of potential alteration that could be associated with unconformity-type
uranium mineralization. The use of resistivity surveys in the Athabasca Basin
has proved to be a useful exploration tool for mapping alteration in
sandstone, especially when applied to a known graphitic conductor system like
that at Black Lake. The survey was successful in defining an area encompassing
hole BL-18 that exhibits a significant low resistivity anomaly situated above
a low magnetic and low gravity signature in the basement rocks. Other similar
resistivity lows were detected along strike of the known Black Lake conductor
     A closely-spaced pattern of drill holes identified an alteration zone
striking through the location of hole BL-18 to the northwest, cross-cutting
the alignment of the Eastern Fault zone and its coincident conductor system.
Three holes located within the alteration zone encountered uranium
mineralization at, or immediately above, the Athabasca Group sandstone
     -   BL-109: 0.10% U(3)O(8) over 1.90 metres, from 311.70 to
         313.60 metres
     -   BL-110: 0.79% U(3)O(8) over 2.82 metres, from 309.73 to
         312.55 metres
     -   BL-111: 0.11% U(3)O(8) over 2.90 metres, from 312.50 to
         315.40 metres
     Following the identification of the alteration zone, now called the "No
Red Zone", two drill fences consisting of five holes 200 metres north of BL-18
and four holes 200 metres south of BL-18 were drilled to cordon off the
alteration zone and its associated mineralization. Hole BL-119, located on the
western end of the North Fence, encountered 600 ppm uranium at the
unconformity, with elevated values of arsenic, nickel, copper and cobalt. The
area around BL-119 is interpreted to be near the edge of the low resistivity
anomaly detected by the geophysical survey, and follow-up drilling is planned.
     The other holes drilled in the 2006 summer/fall program did not encounter
significant uranium mineralization, but assisted in mapping the graphitic
conductor system and alteration in the sandstone. Many previous holes drilled
along the Eastern Fault zone over several kilometres of strike length have
encountered faulting with pervasive dravite, pyrite, chlorite and illite
alteration and anomalous uranium, lead and boron enrichment in the sandstone
up to tens of metres above the unconformity. These are alteration features
observed at, or near, unconformity-type uranium deposits. UEX is encouraged by
the latest drilling results and plans to continue an optimized drilling
program in conjunction with resistivity surveys to search for additional
uranium mineralization that may be present along the 20 kilometre-long Black
Lake conductor system.

     2007 Winter Exploration Program
     A Diamond drilling program of approximately 7 to 10 holes totaling about
6,000 metres is underway, and is planned to continue until March 31, 2007.
     A program of linecutting and 230 kilometres of ground resistivity and
25�kilometres of detailed magnetic surveys is also underway to better define
the character of geophysical conductors outlined by UEX's previous airborne
and ground geophysical surveys, and to assist in the delineation of sandstone
alteration zones.
     The technical information in this document has been compiled and reviewed
by Sierd Eriks, P. Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Instrument
43-101. True widths of mineralized intervals have not yet been determined. All
core samples were analyzed at Saskatchewan Research Council Geoanalytical
Laboratories by ICP, with additional uranium analyses by fluorimetry.

     About the Black Lake Project
     -   Mineralization: UEX's 2004 discovery hole BL-18 discovered
         unconformity-type uranium mineralization in the sandstone,
         immediately above the Athabasca unconformity. The intercept averaged
         0.694 % U(3)O(8) over 4.4 metres between 310.5 and 314.9 metres
         depth, including 1.96% U(3)O(8) over 0.5 metres;
     -   Follow-up drilling by UEX has encountered significant uranium
         mineralization: 2005 holes BL-23, BL-32, BL-56, BL-64 and winter 2006
         hole BL-82, all reported previously, and a new intercept in BL-110
         during the summer/fall 2006 program drilled within an alteration
         trend interpreted to be associated with discovery hole BL-18;
     -   Faulted geophysical conductors: The property hosts a system of
         graphitic conductors which extend along strike for at least 20
         kilometres, and which is coincident with a significant fault, the
         Platt Creek Fault zone. The main strand of the fault, termed the
         Eastern Fault, is spatially associated with the uranium intercepts
         obtained to date;
     -   Alteration: Chlorite, dravite, siderite, illite and pyrite alteration
         associated with anomalous uranium, lead, and boron geochemistry
         occurs in the sandstone within the Eastern Fault zone. Such
         assemblages are developed along faults associated with uranium
         mineralization in other areas of the Athabasca Basin.
