Uranium Hunter Corp. Announces Helicopter Survey Identifying Multiple Uranium Targets at Ruhuhu Project

TORONTO--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - Uranium Hunter Corp. (OTCBB: URHN), ("Uranium Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the geophysical interpretation of the aeromagnetic and radiometric surveys conducted over its Ruhuhu Prospect have delineated up to 8 outcropping zones of enhanced uranium activity.

The 1,100 line km of airborne radiometric and magnetic data acquired by airborne contractor NRG over the Ruhuhu Prospect was interpreted by GAP Geophysics of South Africa with the aim of mapping uranium anomalies of possible palaeochannel exploration interest. Some 9 subdivided zones of enhanced uranium activity (RAD_1 to RAD_9) have been interpreted including anomalies whose responses are up to 5 times greater than background. Anomaly parameters and coordinates are listed in below:

                           URANIUM ANOMALY               COORDINATES

Reporting on the findings of their interpretation, GAP Geophysics stated that such anomalous responses characterize Karoo sediments underlying the area and have similar characteristics to uranium palaeochannel deposits in the Republic of South Africa Karoo. As such, they constitute viable exploration targets. The full report prepared by GAP Geophysics is now available as a publication under the "Investor Relations" tab on the company website at

Recent uranium discoveries in similar rock formations to those found at Ruhuhu include the Kayelekera uranium deposit in Malawi, which is owned by Paladin Resources, and the Mkuju River project owned by Mantra Resources. The Kayelekera discovery has an inferred resource of 9.4 million tonnes ore at 0.12% U308. In the case of the Mkuju project, it was recently announced that thick zones of uranium mineralization were intersected with specific results pending.

Commenting on the findings at Ruhuhu, Ghaith Qamheiah, President of Uranium Hunter, stated, "We are extremely encouraged by these results which continue to reaffirm the viability of our Ruhuhu project. With specific targets now identified, we are confident that further fieldwork will continue to follow this positive trend."

Senator John McCain, United States Presidential Candidate, has said, "Our nation's future security and prosperity depends on the next President making the hard choices that will break our nation's strategic dependence on foreign sources of energy and will ensure our economic prosperity by meeting tomorrow's demands for a clean portfolio." John McCain will put his administration on track to construct 45 new nuclear power plants by 2030 with the ultimate goal of eventually constructing 100 new plants.
