Title:     UEX Commences Winter 2012 Hidden Bay Drilling Program

UEX Corporation ("UEX") is pleased to announce that its winter 2012 Diamond drilling program has commenced on its 100%-owned Hidden Bay Project in the eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, Canada. Drilling totaling approximately 3,000 metres will focus on targets in the vicinity of the Horseshoe and Raven deposits.

Given the successful results from drilling the Horseshoe and Raven deposits over the last several years, this drilling program will continue to test additional geological and geophysical targets in the area. These outlying exploration targets include areas with resistivity and gravity anomalies similar to those at the Horseshoe and Raven deposits, suggesting the possibility of new zones of clay alteration which may be associated with uranium mineralization. This drill program will also test structural targets where projections of known faults (such as the Dragon Lake Fault) may extend across potentially favourable lithologies that form preferential hosts to uranium mineralization in other parts of the district.

About the Horseshoe and Raven Deposits
Mineralization at the Horseshoe and Raven deposits comprises shallow dipping zones of hematization with disseminated and veinlet pitchblende-boltwoodite-uranophane that are hosted by folded arkosic quartzite gneiss. The two deposits are located approximately 4 kilometres south of Cameco's Rabbit Lake milling operation, and 22 kilometres southeast of AREVA's McClean Lake milling operation. As previously announced in July 2009, the Horseshoe and Raven deposits collectively contain, at a cutoff grade of 0.05% U3O8, National Instrument 43-101 ("N.I. 43-101") compliant resources of:
  • 35.04 million pounds of U3O8 grading 0.155% U3O8 in the Indicated category; and
  • 2.72 million pounds of U3O8 grading 0.111% U3O8 in the Inferred category.
These resource estimates are supported by a technical report by K. Palmer, P.Geo. of Golder Associates Ltd. ("Golder"), with an effective date of July 15, 2009 filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) on September 8, 2009.

Qualified Persons
Technical information in this news release has been reviewed by R. Sierd Eriks, P.Geo., UEX's Vice-President of Exploration, who is Qualified Person as defined by N.I. 43-101.

About UEX
UEX is a Canadian uranium exploration and development company actively involved in 18 uranium projects, including six that are 100% owned and operated by UEX, one joint venture with AREVA that is operated by UEX, as well as ten joint-ventured with AREVA and one under option from JCU (Canada) Exploration Company, Limited, which are operated by AREVA. The 18 projects, totaling 308,320 hectares (761,875 acres), are located in the eastern, western and northern perimeters of the Athabasca Basin, the world's richest uranium belt, which accounts for approximately 18% of the global primary uranium production. UEX is currently developing several uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin which include the Kianna, Anne, Colette and 58B deposits at its 49%-owned Shea Creek Project, a joint venture with AREVA in the western Athabasca Basin, and the Horseshoe, Raven and West Bear deposits located at its 100%-owned Hidden Bay Project in the eastern Athabasca Basin.

UEX's two major projects have N.I. 43-101 compliant mineral resources as follows:
