Global Hunter's widely spaced drill program is designed to test the lateral and vertical limits, particularly in the northern portion, of the mineralized porphyry where previous drilling never fully tested the vertical extent of the mineralization. Once these limits are defined, the Company plans to conduct in-fill grid drilling to provide sufficient data to allow for a resource estimate.

The Rabbit South property is centrally located between two well known producers: 25 kilometres from Highland Valley and 12 kilometres from Afton and has excellent infrastructure including: all season access roads; proximity to the Trans-Canada Highway; a major hydro power transmission line and transformer sub-station located less than 10 kilometers away from the property.

All assays were analyzed by EcoTech Laboratory Ltd. in Kamloops, British Columbia. The laboratory is ISO 9001-2000 certified and is a division of the Alex Stewart Group. For complete details on the assay procedures, please refer to the Company's news release dated September 17, 2008, available on our website. The remaining results are currently being reviewed and undergoing QA/QC analysis and will be released once this process is complete.
