Hornby Bay Announces Mobilization of Drill

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) - Hornby Bay Mineral Exploration Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HBE) is pleased to announce that it will commence its uranium exploration program in the Hornby Bay Basin, Nunavut, in early July 2010, with the opening of the Mouse Lake camp and the mobilization of a depth capable diamond drill and drill crew.

The 2010 program will be focused on the drilling of several unconformity type targets on the Coppermine River Property. In addition to testing these geophysical anomalies, the drilling program will provide petrophysical and depth-to-basement data that will help in the planning of a seismic survey of the basin to be completed later in the 2010 exploration season. Ground time- domain electromagnetic surveys will also be conducted on the Coppermine River Property for follow-up of the MEGATEM conductors.

The Company has received an advance of $600,000 from a significant shareholder as a guarantee of payment to the drill contractor to expedite the commencement of the exploration program.
