TORONTO, Canada (March 29, 2012) Mega Uranium Ltd. (TSX: MGA), (“Mega” or the “Company”) announces that its shareholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”), which has been in effect since April 2006, was reconfirmed by the Company’s shareholders at its annual and special meeting held today. In accordance with its terms, the Rights Plan must be reconfirmed by shareholders every three years. No amendments have been made to the Rights Plan since its adoption in 2006.
