Crosshair Intersects Near Surface Uranium Mineralization-Extends C Zone to the Southwest

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2007) - Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CXX)(AMEX:CXZ) is pleased to provide the latest assay results from holes ML-114 to ML-139 of the recently completed drill program at the C Zone on the Company's Central Mineral Belt (CMB) Uranium Project in Labrador. The strong mineralization intersected by drilling, much of which is at very shallow depths, continues to expand and upgrade the current C Zone uranium resource. Highlights from this portion of the program include:

- 0.20% U3O8 over 22.4 metres (70.9 to 93.3 m) as part of a wider zone grading 0.10% U3O8 over 46.3 metres (47.0 to 93.3 m), both within a broader zone of 0.048% U3O8 over 101.0 metres (46.0 to 47.0 m) from hole ML-122(i),

(i) previously released

- 0.10% U3O8 over 5.5 metres (87.5 to 93.0 m) including 0.20% U3O8 over 2.0 metres (90.0 to 92.0 m) in hole ML-124,

- 0.10% U3O8 over 5.0 metres (84.0 to 89.0 m) and 0.10% U3O8 over 6.0 metres (91.5 to 97.5 m) both within a wider zone grading 0.047% U3O8 over 52.0 metres (61.5 to 113.5 m) in hole ML-126,

- 0.10% U3O8 over 6.0 metres (92.5 to 98.5 m) and 0.11% U3O8 over 1.5 metres (105.5 to 107.0 m) both within a wider zone grading 0.052% U3O8 over 16.5 metres (92.5 to 109.0 m) in hole ML-127,

- 0.10% U3O8 over 5.0 metres (30.0 to 35.0 m) including 0.21% U3O8 over 2.2 metres (31.0 to 33.2 m) in hole ML-135, and

- 0.21% U3O8 over 4.6 metres (5.5 to 10.1 m) within a zone grading 0.10% U3O8 over 12.0 metres (4.0 to 16.0 m) all within a wider zone grading 0.050% U3O8 over 35.9 metres (4.0 to 39.9 m) in hole ML-139.

"We are very pleased by the strong mineralization intersected at very shallow depths," says J. Wayne Pickett, P.Geo., VP Exploration at Crosshair. "These excellent results expand the C Zone in several directions including to the southwest where we continue to extend the strike length towards Area 1. Joining the C Zone and Area 1 will be one of the goals of the 2008 program."

Holes ML-117 to ML-119 and ML-122 to ML-127 were all collared in the central portion of the Upper C Zone resource. These holes include previously released ML-122, which returned the best intersection to date from the CMB Uranium Project, as well as hole ML-126 which returned several higher grade intervals within a broad zone averaging 0.05% U3O8 over 52.0 metres. All of the holes will aid in upgrading the current resource estimate, which will be updated in 2008.

Holes ML-132 to ML-134 and ML-138 to ML-139 all tested the shallow, up-dip portion of the Upper C Zone and intersected uranium mineralization grading up to 0.10% U3O8 over 12.0 metres including 0.21% U3O8 over 4.6 metres in hole ML-139. The grade and width of mineralization intersected in these holes demonstrates the potential to increase the uranium resource in the near surface portion of the C Zone.

Holes ML-128 to ML-129 and ML-135 to ML-137 were all collared outside of the currently defined Upper C Zone resource and represent an additional 75 meters of strike length to the southwest portion of the currently defined resource, where it still remains open. Results from these holes are highlighted by ML-135, which intersected 0.10% U3O8 over 5.0 metres.

Complete assay highlights from holes ML-114 to ML-139 along with current drill sections and maps are posted on the Company website at:

Results for over 30 additional holes from the current program are pending and will be released over the coming weeks.

Crosshair has recently suspended its drilling operations on the CMB Uranium Project for winter freeze-up and is currently planning an aggressive 2008 program set to begin early in the New Year that will see three drills turning on the property throughout the winter.

About Crosshair

Crosshair is a dominant player in the exploration for uranium in the Central Mineral Belt of Labrador-Canada's most promising emerging uranium district. The 750 sq km Central Mineral Belt Uranium Project is host to potentially three types of uranium mineralization - Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG - Olympic Dam), structurally controlled/shear zone and unconformity types of mineralization.

The Company's exploration work on the Central Mineral Belt Uranium Project is supervised by J. Wayne Pickett, P.Geo., a member of the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Vice President Exploration of the Company and a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101. Mr. Pickett has verified that the results presented above have been accurately summarized from the official assay certificates provided to the Company. A QA/QC program has been implemented consisting of standard, blank and duplicate samples.

Split drill core samples are being sent to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, ON for analyses. Uranium analysis is performed by the delayed neutron counting (DNC) method, while multi-element analysis is performed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Samples that exceed the upper limit for uranium are re-assayed using X-ray fluorescence (XRF).
