Hansa Comments on Historic Zinc Resource in Sweden

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2007) - HANSA RESOURCES LIMITED ("Hansa") (TSX VENTURE:HRL)(FRANKFURT:3F2). Mr Jeffrey Gale, President, announces that the portfolio of properties currently being acquired from Mawson Resources, includes the Jormlien zinc property which has a substantial historical resource. The project is located in central western Sweden and is contained within the Company's 100% owned Jormlien nr 1 exploration permit and the Jormlien nr 2 (658.7 hectares) exploration application.

At Jormlien, a historical resource of 612,000 tonnes @ 4.75% zinc, 0.4% copper has been calculated. The historical resource estimates quoted above are based on a report titled "Jormlien Resource Calculation" by Rolf Larsson 1980 of Boliden and is based on data from 103 diamond drill holes drilled in 1977-79 on a 40 metre by 20 metre grid. The mineralization is developed as a single strike extensive stratabound lense, currently drilled out over 600 metres of strike and 100 metres down dip. The resource remains open along strike and down dip. The resource was calculated using a polygonal method and is roughly analogous to CIM definition "Indicated". A minimum mineralization thickness of 3.5 metres was used in the calculation, as was the assumption of 25% dilution with barren waste and the loss of 15% of the resource as pillars. Data is historical in nature and was compiled prior to the implementation of NI 43-101 reporting standards.

Hansa Resources has not completed sufficient exploration to verify the estimates. Hansa Resources is not treating them as National Instrument defined resources or reserves verified by a Qualified Person, and the historical estimate should not be relied upon. The Company does not have, and is not aware of, any more recent resource estimates that conform to the standards set out in National Instrument 43-101.

Mineralization at Jormlien comprises laminated and breccia textured semi-massive sulphides, within an altered quartzite horizon in a regional sequence of phyllites. The sulphides are dominated by mid-brown sphalerite with lesser pyrite and chalcopyrite. The stratabound deposit outcrops over 600 metres along strike and remains open in both directions. The lense averages 5 metres thickness (to a maximum 9 metres) and dips gently into a hillside at 15 degrees.

Mr. Gale comments "The Jormlien historic zinc-copper resource is a strong addition to our exploration portfolio in Sweden. The mineralization begins at surface and remains open in all directions. Our plan is to expand the resource using geophysics and drilling. Jormlien cements Hansa as a company with an enviable gold and base metal exploration portfolio. We are in the final stages of completing our agreement with Mawson."
