VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (TSX:CXX)(NYSE Alternext US:CXZ)(NYSE Amex:CXZ.A) ("Crosshair") announces that it has commenced an action in British Columbia Supreme Court against Universal Uranium Ltd.

Further details of the Agreements are disclosed in press releases of Crosshair dated May 23, 2008 and July 30, 2008.

About Crosshair

Crosshair is a dominant player in the exploration and development of uranium in the US and Canada. Its flagship Project, Bootheel, is located in uranium mining friendly Wyoming and with its in-situ mining potential, Bootheel is designed for near term production. The CMB Uranium Project is located in Labrador, Canada and has four currently defined resources - C Zone, Area 1, Armstrong and Two Time Zone. These assets fall outside of Labrador Inuit Lands and are therefore not directly impacted by the Nunatsiavut Government's decision in March 2008 to place a three year moratorium on uranium mining within their self-governed Labrador Inuit Lands. The Crosshair team is comprised of knowledgeable and experienced professionals with both exploration and mining backgrounds.
