Hawk Announces That Geotech to Fly Helicopter-Borne VTEM Survey Over Its Charlebois Lake Uranium Project, Northern Saskatchewan

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2008) - Hawk Uranium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HUI) ("Hawk") is pleased to announce that it has contracted Geotech Ltd., of Aurora, Ontario to conduct approximately 1,500 km of helicopter-borne Time Domain Electromagnetic Geophysical Survey with a VTEM system over its wholly owned Charlebois Lake Uranium Project in Northern Saskatchewan. Geotech Ltd. is expected to fly the area in February-March, 2008.

The Charlebois Lake Uranium Project is in a structurally complex area, and it is postulated that uranium mineralization was introduced simultaneously with the later stage pegmatite dykes emplacement that was intruded preferentially along complex fault/fracture systems. Dilation zones in the "plumbing" within these fault zones will be the focus of the 2008 Exploration Programme using a handheld RSI Solutions Inc., RS-125 Super Spec Scintillometer, where possible. This instrument is regarded as the most modern "state of the art" Spectrometer available today.

The helicopter-borne Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic System (VTEM) has a penetration depth of over 800m, with a low Base Frequency (30Hz) for penetration through conductive overburden cover, coupled with a 2-3 metres High Spatial Resolution. This system is advertised to be able to delineate potential drill hole targets from the airborne results. In addition, it also has excellent resistivity discrimination to enable the detection of weak anomalies.

Hawk's Charlebois Lake Uranium Project consist of nine (9) blocks totalling approximately 4254 hectares (or 10,500 acres) and is located in the Charlebois Lake Area , 35 miles E-NE of Stony Rapids, Northern Saskatchewan. The area is known to have a number of uranium showings, and Hawk's Charlebois Lake Uranium Project contains 12 out of 18 known uranium showings in the area. Hawk controls approximately 16.5 km of strike length of this known uranium mineralized trend within its blocks. The uranium mineralized strike length within the Hawk nine (9) claim blocks could be easily and conservatively projected to be in excess 26 km.

The Charlebois Lake area is underlain by The Early Precambrian Tazin Group, consisting of highly metamorphosed biotite bearing impure quartzite, schist, and hornblende gneisses, which have been intruded by granite and granite gneiss that now occupy 70% of the area. Subsequent tectonics resulted in the intrusion of mineralogically similar pegmatites which in the area are described as a pegmatite granite.

Uranium mineralization is spatially and intricately related to these pegmatites.

Hawk currently has option interests in uranium-related properties in Grand Calumet Township, Quebec; two VMS/nickel/copper/PGE exploration properties in the McFaulds Lake "Ring of Fire" area of Northern Ontario through option or joint venture agreements (one with Noront Resources and one with MacDonald Mines); one gold exploration property in the Wawa area of Ontario; one uranium property in the Elliot Lake Camp of Ontario; one uranium property in the Charlebois Lake Area of the Northern Mining District of Saskatchewan; one uranium property in Gila County, Arizona; and petroleum and natural gas properties in Ontario. Hawk also continues to maintain a core holding of 3.5 million shares in Wits Basin Precious Minerals Inc. (OTCBB: WITM). Wits Basin is currently pursuing active projects in South Africa, Colorado, Mexico and the People's Republic of China. Hawk also has petroleum and natural gas properties in Ontario.
