VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Gold Hawk Resources Inc. ("Gold Hawk" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GHK) is pleased to announce additional assay drill results at the Company's Oracle Ridge Copper Mine in southern Arizona. Assays have been received for additional zones of mineralization in Holes 2011-016 and 051 and the first assays for the zone intersected in Hole 2011-130. Highlights include 20 feet of 4.62% copper, 30.30% iron and 1.05 oz/ton silver in Hole 2011-016 and 9 feet of 3.35% copper, 16.04% iron and 1.00 oz/ton silver in 2011-051.

The following tabulates the mineralized zones intersected in the additional assay drill results. Mineralized zones previously released in the media release dated May 12, 2011 are italicized and included in the table in order to put the new results in context.

Intervals were calculated using an external 1% copper cut-off. Intervals labeled "Includes" are higher-grade portions of the previous listed interval. True thickness is believed to be between 80-to-100% of the reported thicknesses. Analyses for copper, silver and iron were completed by Skyline Labs of Tucson, Arizona on ½ core splits using standard industry accepted techniques.

These holes were drilled as part of the Company's ongoing historic data base confirmation program. The successful completion of the validation program will allow the company to undertake an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimation. Results to date compare well with the historic data. The iron mineralization potential, which was not considered by previous mine operators, continues to show promise.

The Company considers Hole 2011-016 to be significant as the zone from 180 feet to 250 feet is currently interpreted as an up-dip extension of the Block 4 mineralization. Offset drilling to further delineate this zone is underway.

Clark, P.Eng. of Glenn R. Clark & Associates Limited, a consultant for Gold Hawk and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, who is responsible for the technical information reported herein.
