Gold Hawk Provides a Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire – Nov. 4, 2009) - Gold Hawk Resources Inc. ("Gold Hawk" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGK) announces that initial funding is now in place for construction of the new tailings facility at Chinchan.

The Company's Peru subsidiary Compania Minera San Juan (Peru) S.A. ("CMSJ") has received an US$1.75 million advance on the proposed US$20 million loan from Nyrstar. The advance will be used to finance the construction of the new tailings facility at Chinchan and ongoing care and maintenance expenditures. The advance became necessary to secure the support of suppliers, contractors and government who are critical to the re-start of the Coricancha Mine and who have been on hold pending a resolution of the Company's funding shortfall.

In the event that the proposed sale of an 85 per cent interest in CMSJ to Nyrstar does not complete, US$750,000 of the loan advance will be due in five days with the remainder payable in February 2010.
