                            Union Resources Limited                            

             Issue of Shares to Directors in Lieu of Fees, Salary              

In accordance with shareholder approval received at the Company's recent annual
general meeting the Company has issued a total of 3,504,002 shares in the
Company (at a notional issue price of 1.1 cents per share) to the Company's
non-executive directors in lieu of directors' fees of A$38,332 for the months
of October and November 2008, and 2,206,338 shares (also at a notional issue
price of 1.1 cents per share) to Managing Director Dr Frank Reid in lieu of
US$16,667 of his salary for the months of October and November 2008.

The issue of shares to Directors in lieu of fees/salary assists the company to
conserve cash whilst also giving the Directors a greater stake in the future
success of the Company.

Also in accordance with shareholder approval received at the annual general
meeting, further shares will be issued to the same Directors at a later date in
lieu of non-executive directors' fees of A$19,166 for the month of December,
2008 and US$8,333 of Managing Director Dr Frank Reid's salary for December

Quotation agreement

1 +Quotation of our additional +securities is in ASX's absolute discretion. ASX
may quote the +securities on any conditions it decides.

2 We warrant the following to ASX.

  * The issue of the +securities to be quoted complies with the law and is not
    for an illegal purpose
   
  * There is no reason why those +securities should not be granted +quotation.
   
  * An offer of the +securities for sale within 12 months after their issue
    will not require disclosure under section 707(3) or section 1012C(6) of the
    Corporations Act.
   
Note: An entity may need to obtain appropriate warranties from subscribers for
the securities in order to be able to give this warranty.

  * Section 724 or section 1016E of the Corporations Act does not apply to any
    applications received by us in relation to any +securities to be quoted and
    that no-one has any right to return any +securities to be quoted under
    sections 737, 738 or 1016F of the Corporations Act at the time that we
    request that the +securities be quoted.
   
  * We warrant that if confirmation is required under section 1017F of the
    Corporations Act in relation to the +securities to be quoted, it has been
    provided at the time that we request that the securities be quoted.
   
  * If we are a trust, we warrant that no person has the right to return the
    +securities to be quoted under section 1019B of the Corporations Act at the
    time that we request that the +securities be quoted.
   
 3. We will indemnify ASX to the fullest extent permitted by law in respect of
    any claim, action or expense arising from or connected with any breach of
    the warranties in this agreement.
   
4. We give ASX the information and documents required by this form. If any
information or document not available now, will give it to ASX before
+quotation of the +securities begins. We acknowledge that ASX is relying on the
information and documents. We warrant that they are (will be) true and
complete.
