Crosshair Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2007) - Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CXX)(AMEX:CXZ) announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted a shareholder rights plan. The rights plan is effective immediately and is subject to ratification by shareholders at an extraordinary shareholders' meeting that is expected to be held in March 2008. Upon ratification, the rights plan will have a term of three years.

A committee of independent directors of Crosshair, consisting of David Lee, Leo Power and Ian Smith, was established to consider whether it was in the best interests of shareholders to adopt the rights plan. Following deliberations, including receiving legal advice from independent counsel, the committee determined that it was appropriate.

The objectives of the rights plan include providing shareholders with adequate time to properly assess the merits of any proposed takeover bid or similar transaction involving the shares of Crosshair without undue pressure; encouraging the development of alternative transactions or competing takeover bids under the circumstances; and giving the directors adequate time to fully consider any such takeover bid or similar transaction and any alternative transaction that may be proposed.

Ian Smith, a member of the independent committee, said, "At the present time, the directors of Crosshair have no knowledge of any proposed offer to acquire Crosshair's shares. However, the independent directors consider it prudent to adopt the rights plan to ensure that shareholders are treated fairly and not subject to undue pressure to tender in the event of such a transaction."

A copy of the rights plan, which will preclude a person or group of persons from acquiring more than 20% of Crosshair's outstanding common shares other than in compliance with the rights plan, will be attached to a material change report to be filed by Crosshair and will be available at
