Hudson Provides 2008 Exploration Program Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - HUDSON RESOURCES INC. ("Hudson") (TSX VENTURE:HUD) is pleased to provide the following update to its 2008 Greenland exploration program. Hudson has started the mobilization of field crews to Greenland to commence an aggressive 2008 program on our Greenland exploration licenses with the following key objectives:

- Improved recovery and liberation of diamonds via modifications to the crushing process for the on-site Dense Media Separation (DMS) plant.

- Completion of the processing of the remaining stockpiled kimberlite on-site (approximately 100 tonnes) from the 2007 bulk sample program.

- Extraction and processing of +500 tonnes of material from a second pit in the Garnet Lake dike to test for diamond continuity along strike.

- 4,000 to 5,000 metre exploration drill program on new regional targets and along the Garnet Lake strike.

- Reconnaissance program to identify new kimberlite bodies and to test previously identified diamondiferous kimberlite using the on-site DMS plant.

- Evaluation of the large Safartoq carbonatite intrusive complex on Hudson's license, which is known to host significantly anomalous niobium and uranium occurrences.


Commencing the middle of May, numerous modifications will be undertaken at Hudson's DMS plant located on-site adjacent to the Garnet Lake dike. Modifications include the addition of a second cone crusher and improvements to material flow in the plant. These modifications are designed to improve the liberation of diamonds while minimizing diamond breakage. The plant is expected to commence processing of kimberlite in early June.


Hudson plans to process in excess of 750 tonnes of kimberlite from the Garnet Lake dike through the on-site DMS plant. A second pit location is planned in order to demonstrate continuity of results. In early June, the company is scheduled to commence this operation, which is expected to run until the beginning of September. It is anticipated that the concentrate will be sent in batches to the GeoAnalytical Laboratories at the Saskatchewan Research Council ("SRC"), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in order to expedite 2008 diamond results.


The 2008 drill program is expected to commence the second week of May. The drill is currently on site. The objective of the +4,000 metre drill program is to test numerous potential kimberlite targets on the license and to continue to further delineate the diamondiferous Garnet Lake dike.


Hudson's license includes the Sarfatoq carbonatite, which is a large (5km x 3km) intrusive complex. The carbonatite underwent preliminary investigations in 2002 by New Millennium Resources NL ("NMR"), which previously held the license. Samples collected by NMR, which were processed by Ultra Trace Pty Ltd of Australia, show significantly elevated levels of niobium (up to 51% Nb2O5) and uranium (up to 0.9% U3O8) in drill core and surface samples. Hudson will undertake a sampling program and drilling to further evaluate the economic potential of the carbonatite.
