AUC LLC, an Affiliate of Bayswater, Completes 70 Additional Drill Holes at Reno Creek Uranium Project, Wyoming

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 15, 2012) - Bayswater Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BYU)(PINKSHEETS:BYSWF) is pleased to report that AUC LLC ("AUC"), an affiliate that holds the Reno Creek properties and operator of the Reno Creek Uranium Project, has drilled an additional 70 holes to complete its 350 hole 2011 delineation drilling program at the Reno Creek project located in Campbell County, Wyoming. In addition, AUC plans to submit permit applications in the 2nd quarter of 2012 to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission ("NRC") for a Source Materials License and to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality ("WDEQ") for a Permit to Mine uranium at the Reno Creek site now that it has completed baseline environmental work as previously reported.

The recently completed 70 holes, that formed a portion of the 2011 drilling program, were principally designed as step-out holes to test along the strike of identified mineralization in at least three separate roll front systems in the southwest Reno Creek area. Highlights of this drilling phase are as follows:

/T/

-- Drilling defined significant uranium intercepts utilizing cutoff grades

of greater than or equal to 0.03% eU3O8 and grade-thickness values of

greater than or equal to 0.20. Drill holes intercepts that meet or

exceed the cutoff, as stated, are summarized in the table below.

-- Nearly 80% of the drill holes encountered mineralization exceeding the

listed grade/GT cutoffs.

-- The best hole intersected 38.5 feet grading 0.068% eU3O8 for a

grade/thickness ("GT") interval of 2.63, including an intercept of 18

feet grading 0.09% eU3O8 for a GT of 1.62.

/T/

AUC's 2011 drilling campaign included 350 holes for a total of 141,000 feet of drilling in the southwest Reno Creek area, including 7 core holes and 2 re-entries of historical holes.

With completion of environmental baseline studies, AUC is finalizing applications for a Source Materials License to the NRC and a Permit to Mine to the WDEQ. In order to optimize the quality and effectiveness of the applications, AUC elected to initiate a collaborative, publicly open procedure with the NRC during November 15-17, 2011, called a Pre-Submission Audit. NRC staff traveled to the Reno Creek Project site and toured the proposed project development area. NRC staff then reviewed the draft application, including both the Technical Report and Environmental Report, in detail, to determine the application's general level of completeness. NRC staff found the documents very thorough and identified specific sections of the document whose enhancements could significantly reduce future Requests for Additional Information during the technical review phase. NRC's comments are now being incorporated into the final applications. Key findings of environmental baseline work are as follows:

/T/

-- The mineralized Production Zone sandstone horizon is physically confined

above and below by a low permeability shale or mudstone across the

entire project area. Detailed core testing of these mudstone aquitards

has revealed very low permeability ranging from 0.0005 to 0.0009

millidarcies.

-- The four multi-well pump tests completed, document that the hydrologic

conditions such as permeability and transmissivity are within the normal

operating ranges exhibited at existing commercial ISR production

facilities in Wyoming and neighbouring states as well as for projects

under on-going permitting or recently permitted for production in

Wyoming.

-- No hydrologic communication has been detected between the mineralized

production sandstone and the underlying and overlying aquifers in the

area of pump testing. This finding also confirms that there is no

evidence of hydrologic leakage or communication through historical drill

holes.

AUC's plans for 2012 include drilling of up to 550 exploration and delineation holes on various Reno Creek area properties, continuing its permitting activities with the NRC and the WDEQ, preparation of an updated NI 43-101 Resource Report, and preparation of a NI 43-101 compliant Prefeasibility Study/Preliminary Economic Analysis. In addition during 2012, the Company intends to commence engineering and design of the Production Units and Central Process Plant. AUC's total budget during 2012 is approximately $8.0 million (US) that has been fully funded by Pacific Road Resources Funds. The 2012 drilling campaign will commence in March, 2012.

Bayswater and Pacific Road Resources Funds ("PRRF") are developing the Reno Creek Uranium Project through Reno Creek Holdings Inc. ("RCHI"), which owns 100% of the Project through RCHI's wholly owned subsidiary AUC. Bayswater currently has a 13.47% interest in RCHI. PRRF is entitled to convert its investment in RCHI into common shares of Bayswater at any time up to six months following the later of completion of a feasibility study or receipt of all requisite mining permits, but in any event PRRF shall convert its investment not later than April 7, 2015, provided certain conditions are met. Upon conversion of PRRF's investment, Bayswater will own a 100% interest in RCHI which holds the Reno Creek property.

The Company's exploration activities are conducted under the supervision of George M. Leary, M.Sc., P. Eng. (B.C.), President of the Company, and Victor Tanaka, B.Sc., P.Geo. (B.C.), Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer of the Company. Both are Qualified Persons under NI 43-101. George Leary is the qualified person responsible for the technical information in this news release.
