Hawk Uranium Inc. Consolidates Mining Interests in Ontario Gold Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2007) - Hawk Uranium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HUI) ("Hawk") is pleased to announce that it has consolidated its interests in a property located in Corbiere Township and Esquega Township, Ontario through the repurchase of certain interests that were previously assigned to a wholly owned subsidiary of Wits Basin Precious Minerals Inc. (OTCBB:WITM) ("Wits Basin").

Pursuant to its agreement, Hawk will acquire a 100% interest in the "Black Sand Zone" portion of the property for a total cash payment of $50,000. The transferor will retain a 1% Gross Gold Royalty ("GGR") in the "Black Sand Zone" portion of the property, subject to Hawk's right to repurchase up to 0.5% of the GGR for $500,000. No finder's fee will be paid in connection with this transaction.

The property consists of 19 contiguous mining claims covering approximately 760 acres. 16 of the claims are located in the extreme southern part of Corbiere Township, Ontario, and the other 3 extend into the northern part of Esquega Township, Ontario.

Prior to Hawk's Board reaching a determination as to the acquisition of the interests from Wits Basin, H. Vance White, Hawk's President and CEO, advised the Board of Directors of his interest in the transaction by virtue of his position as a senior officer and director of Hawk and Chairman and a director of Wits Basin. Mr. White abstained from the Board's decision with respect to the acquisition.

Hawk's acquisition of this interest is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.


Hawk has both direct or option interests in a uranium project in Grand Calumet Township, Quebec, one gold exploration property in Ontario, one uranium property in the Elliot Lake Camp of Ontario, one uranium property in the Charlebois Lake Area of the Northern Mining District of Saskatchewan, one Uranium property in Gila County, Arizona, one VMS exploration property in Ontario, and a core holding of 3.5 million shares in Wits Basin Precious Minerals Inc. (OTCBB:WITM). Wits Basin is currently pursuing active projects in South Africa, Colorado, Mexico and the People's Republic of China. Hawk also has petroleum and natural gas properties in Ontario. Hawk holds approximately 500,000 shares of MacDonald Mines Exploration Limited (TSX VENTURE:BMK), which company is carrying out an active exploration program in the McFaulds Lake area of the James Bay Lowlands, the site of a new potential VMS base metal play.
