1 for 5 Non-Renounceable Rights Issue


7 October 2008

                            Union Resources Limited                            

                     1 for 5 Non-Renounceable Rights Issue                     

The following announcement has been made on the Australian Securities Exchange
("ASX"). In addition, a prospectus (the "Prospectus") relating to the
non-renounceable rights issue (including ASX Appendix 3B) was also released to
the ASX. The prospectus was today lodged with the Australian Securities &
Investments Commission (ASIC).

Union Resources Limited ("the Company") previously advised on 16 September that
it will undertake a one (1) for five (5) non-renounceable rights issue at
$0.011 (1.1 cents) per share to raise up to approximately $2.0 million.
Shareholders will be offered the opportunity to purchase one share for every
five shares held by them as at the record date of 16 October 2008. Shareholders
will also receive one free attaching option for every five shares applied for,
expiring 31 December 2010 and exercisable at $0.02 (2 cents) per option. The
offer under the rights issue is not underwritten.

As previously advised, funds raised from the rights issue will be expended
solely on the Namibian Sandpiper Phosphate Project ("the Project"), whilst
funds allocated for working capital which will be used to fund the Company's
general administrative expenses. The funds raised will be used for:

 1. undertaking confirmatory sampling (including acquisition of gravity cores
    and grab samples) and subsequent geo-statistical analysis;
 2. undertaking sampling for process testing and geotechnical assessment;  
 3. undertaking a dredging assessment;
 4. payment of the US$500,000 cash settlement sum to the vendor of the Project;
 5. working capital generally; and
 6. expenses of the rights issue.
   
The proposed timetable for the rights issue is as follows*:
