9 October 2008

                            Union Resources Limited                            

                                (the "Company")                                

        NON-RENOUNCEABLE 1 FOR 5 RIGHTS ISSUE - Letter to Shareholders         

Further to the announcement dated 7 October 2008 the following letter has been
sent to shareholders in the Company.

On 7 October 2008 the Company notified the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)
that it will undertake a one (1) for five (5) non-renounceable rights issue to
raise up to approximately $1,976,422 through the issue of up to 179,674,709
fully paid ordinary shares at $0.011 (1.1 cents) each. Shareholders will be
offered the opportunity to purchase one share for every five shares held by
them as at the record date of 5.00 pm (AEDST) 16 October 2008 (Record Date).
The shares issued will rank equally in all respects with the existing shares on
issue in the Company. Shareholders will also receive one free attaching options
for every five shares subscribed for by them under the rights issue. All
fractional entitlements to shares and options will be rounded up to the nearest
whole number.

The Company currently has 898,373,543 shares on issue, all of which are quoted
on ASX, and 617,469,249 options on issue. However, 11,166,665 options do not
vest prior to the Record Date and cannot be exercised and a further 3,000,000
options are subject to vesting conditions, being 1,500,000 options vesting
where the 5 day volume weighted average price of Shares exceeds 5 cents and a
further 1,500,000 options vesting where the 5 day volume weighted average price
of Shares exceeds 10 cents. The balance of 603,302,584 options may be exercised
prior to the Record Date in order to participate in the rights issue.

The maximum number of Shares to be issued pursuant to this rights issue,
assuming no Options are exercised prior to the Record Date, is approximately
179,674,709 bringing the total number of shares on issue in the Company to
1,078,048,252 shares. Application will be made to the ASX for quotation of all
shares issued under the rights issue.

Funds raised from the rights issue will be expended solely on the Company's
Namibian Sandpiper Phosphate Project, other than funds allocated for working
capital which will be used to fund the Company's general administrative
expenses and expenses of the offer. 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;
