Hudson Greenland Diamond Project Status Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 27, 2008) - HUDSON RESOURCES INC. ("Hudson") (TSX VENTURE:HUD) is pleased to announce the following update on the 2008 Greenland diamond bulk sampling and exploration project:

- Processing has been completed on over 120 tonnes of 2007 stockpiled material through the on-site Dense Media Separation (DMS) plant. Processing of the remaining 2007 kimberlite will be completed shortly. Extraction of additional kimberlite from the dike is ongoing and will be the basis of the 2008 bulk sample.

- DMS plant upgrades have been completed resulting in improved processing efficiencies. The kimberlite has initially been crushed to minus 12mm. This will be followed by a minus 6mm crush with further crushing to be determined following liberation analysis. A concentrate of between 2% to 3% is being achieved, which is a significant improvement from the 2007 program. The plan is to ship the concentrate out to Canada in batches for final diamond recovery, with the first batch of concentrate expected to depart for Canada in July. This should yield diamond results commencing in late summer-early fall.

- A 0.12 ct diamond has been recovered in the concentrate product while conducting a cyclone efficiency diamond tracer density test.

- 1,900 metres of exploration drilling on new targets has been completed. Highlights include:

-- significant concentrations of kimberlite dike zones were intersected 8km east of Garnet Lake, where initial float samples proved to be diamondiferous; and

-- a 4.6m disseminated to semi-massive sulphide zone was intercepted at the mid-point along a 3.5km long highly conductive EM target and related surface gossan feature. Core samples have been sent out for analysis.

- The nearby community of Maniitsoq has been selected by the Greenland Government as the location of the proposed Alcoa aluminium smelter. The related hydroelectric power plant will likely be located within 15km of Garnet Lake resulting in major infrastructure improvements and access to reliable and cost effective electricity. This will have a significant positive impact on the economics of the project at Garnet Lake. More information is available at

- All government approvals are in place to complete the extraction and processing of up to 2,000 tonnes of material from the Garnet Lake kimberlite. Hudson is targeting to complete a minimum of 600 tonnes of freshly excavated kimberlite for its 2008 bulk sample.

- All licence renewals have been completed and approved by the regulatory authorities in Greenland and Denmark.
