TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2007) - Hawk Uranium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HUI) ("Hawk") is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its interest in a mining property located in the McFaulds Lake Area of the Thunder Bay Mining Division, Ontario, which it holds under an Option and Joint Venture Agreement between Hawk, Wits Basin Precious Minerals Inc. (OTCBB:WITM) ("Wits Basin") and MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BMK) ("MacDonald") dated November 30, 2006.

Pursuant to a transfer agreement between Hawk, MacDonald and Wits Basin, Wits Basin will sell its 24.5% interest in the property to Hawk and MacDonald in exchange for cash payments by each of Hawk and MacDonald of $25,000 (for an aggregate total of $50,000). Upon completion of the transfer, Hawk's interest in the property will increase from 24.4% to 36.75% and MacDonald's interest in the property will increase from 51% to 63.25%. Wits Basin will own no further interest in the property. No finder's fee will be paid in connection with this transaction.

The property comprises five contiguous claims (for 80 claim units) in the Thunder Bay Mining Division, near the western edge of the James Bay Lowlands, Ontario, and is approximately 3,200 acres in size.

Prior to Hawk's Board reaching a determination as to the acquisition of the interests from Wits Basin, H. Vance White, Hawk's President and CEO, advised the Board of Directors of his interest in the transaction by virtue of his position as a senior officer and director of Hawk and Chairman and a director of Wits Basin.
