Hathor Commences Three Rig Drill Program at its Roughrider Uranium Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) - Hathor Exploration Limited (TSX VENTURE:HAT) is pleased to provide an update of its current exploration plans for the Athabasca Basin, the premier exploration district in the world for high grade uranium deposits.

Drilling has commenced on the Midwest Northeast Property. Three rigs are on site; two are turning, with the third, on barge, slated to start on July 16th, as per DFO regulations. Figure 1 (http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/hat712.pdf) highlights where the drilling will focus this summer. The barge rig will continue delineation drilling on the Roughrider deposit, and complete several reconnaissance holes in "the gap" between it and Roughrider East. One rig will complete infill drilling at the recently discovered Roughrider East Deposit, and test for extensions to the east. The third rig will test the resistivity anomaly running southwestward from Roughrider East, along the Midwest Trend, as shown in Figure 6 on the previous News Release dated 29 June 2010. 

The three month program will end in late September, as dictated by environmental conditions. The summer program is budgeted at approximately $6 million.

Terra Ventures Inc. owns a qualified 10 per cent interest in the Midwest Northeast property, carried until a production decision is made based on a feasibility study.
