Crosshair Continues to Define Mineralized Corridor

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 27, 2008) - Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (TSX:CXX)(NYSE-A:CXZ) is pleased to report diamond drill results from the 2008 summer program on its Central Mineral Belt (CMB) Uranium Project in Labrador. All six holes drilled at Area 1 intersected uranium mineralization, highlighted by:

- 0.09% U3O8 over 5.63m (from 326.86m to 332.49m) and

0.08% U3O8 over 4.96m (from 289.42m to 294.38m), both part of a wider zone grading

0.03% U3O8 over 47.57m (from 289.42m to 336.99m) in drill hole ML-A1-55; and

- 0.26% U3O8 over 2.40m (from 176.70m to 179.10m) within

0.09% U3O8 over 6.90m (from 174.70m to 181.60m) in drill hole ML-A1-54.

Four of the six holes were drilled approximately 1 kilometer (km) east of the Area 1 ("Trout Pond") resource and therefore fall half way between Area 1 and the C Zone. All drill holes intersected mineralized intervals in hematized and brecciated mafic volcanic rocks similar to those at the C Zone and Area 1. This adds further evidence of the existence of a 4.5 km long uranium mineralized trend extending from Armstrong to the C Zone. The true width of the mineralized zone is expected to be less than the intersected width in ML-A1-55, as it is felt that the zone was tested obliquely in this area.

"It is exciting to see that not only do we have resources at the northern (C Zone), central (Area 1) and southern (Armstrong) ends of the 4.5 km long corridor, but we are now also starting to join these areas together," says Mark Morabito, President and CEO. "All areas remain open for expansion and our next program will continue to define the corridor by linking up all of the existing resource zones."

About Crosshair

Crosshair is a dominant player in the exploration for uranium in the Central Mineral Belt of Labrador - Canada's most promising emerging uranium district. The CMB Uranium Project is host to potentially three types of uranium mineralization - Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG - Olympic Dam), structurally controlled/shear zone and unconformity types of mineralization. Ninety-two percent of Crosshair's CMB Property and all of its currently defined resources (including the Two Time Zone) fall outside of Labrador Inuit Lands. These assets are therefore not directly impacted by the Nunatsiavut Government's decision in March 2008 to place a three year moratorium on uranium mining within their self-governed Labrador Inuit Lands.

"The Company's exploration work on the CMB Uranium Project is supervised by Sally Gillies and John Clarke. Sally Gillies, M.Sc., P.Geo., Lonestar Division General Manager, is a member of the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador, and a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101. Ms. Gillies has verified that the assay results presented above have been accurately summarized from the official assay certificates provided to the Company. A QA/QC program has been implemented consisting of standard, blank and duplicate samples."

Split drill core samples are sent to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, ON for analyses. Uranium analysis is performed by the delayed neutron counting (DNC) method, while multi-element analysis is performed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Samples that exceed the upper limit for uranium are re-assayed using X-ray fluorescence (XRF).
