CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 10, 2007) -


Black Hat Capital Inc. ("Black Hat" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BHC.P) today is pleased to announce that pursuant to its previously announced qualifying transaction it has entered into a formal asset purchase agreement between Black Hat, Great Horn Inc. ("Great Horn" or the "Vendor") and Castle Resources Mexico S.A. de C.V (the "Purchase Agreement"), pursuant to which Black Hat and Castle Resources Mexico S.A. de C.V will purchase from Great Horn the Se los Dijes Claim Group composed of eight concessions totalling 312.2 hectares located approximately five kilometres north-east of the city of Zacatecas in the Zacatecas mining district.

Upon the closing of the Qualifying Transaction, Black Hat proposes to conduct surface drilling and sampling of existing underground working on the Se los Dije Claim in order to outline a minable resource for the future development of a mining operation. In parallel, an exploration program of surface mapping and diamond drilling has been planned to test the potential along the 2 kilometre strike length of the San Fernando, La Platosa, Veta del Alto and the possible extension of the San Salvador veins. Based on present knowledge of the Se los Dije Claim Group, the objective is to outline a resource of 10 to 20 million ounces of silver.

Black Hat would also like to address the fact that the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange") has suspended from trading Black Hat shares on the Exchange for failure to complete a qualifying transaction with the proscribed 24 month period. Black Hat now has until April 9, 2007 to complete its qualifying transaction or its shares will be delisted from the exchange. It is the intention of Black Hat to proceed with the qualifying transaction and to complete the qualifying transaction before April 9, 2007.
