October 8, 2010
Toronto, Canada, October 8, 2010 – Mega Uranium Ltd. ("Mega") (MGA:TSX) announces today that it has closed its previously announced flow-through private placement (see press release dated September 17, 2010). Mega raised aggregate gross proceeds of $3,250,000 from the sale of a total of 5,000,000 flow-through units (the "Units"), at a price of $0.65 per Unit (the "Financing").
Each Unit consisted of one "flow-through" common share and one-half of one non-flow-though common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant") of Mega. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of Mega (which is a non-flow-through share), at a price of $0.75, at any time until expiry on April 8, 2012.
Mega paid an aggregate of $227,500 in finders’ fees and issued an aggregate of 400,000 compensation warrants to third parties who assisted the company in arranging for the sale of the Units. Each compensation warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of Mega, at a price of $0.65, until expiry on April 8, 2012. Each whole common share purchase warrant will be exercisable for one common share of Mega, at a price of $0.75 per share, until expiry on April 8, 2012.
An aggregate of 750,000 Units were purchased by insiders of Mega.
The proceeds from the Financing will be used for exploration expenditures, which will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act(Canada)) and will be renounced for the 2010 taxation year.

Note Regarding Disclosure for Mineral Projects
This press release contains disclosure regarding our mineral resources. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resources may never be converted into reserves. Furthermore, inferred resources are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. Further exploration will be required to upgrade the inferred resources to a higher resource category.
