NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMENATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Hunt Mining Corp. ("Hunt Mining" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HMX) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an engagement letter with Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd. ("Macquarie" or the "Underwriter"), pursuant to which Macquarie has agreed to purchase, on a bought deal private placement basis, 22,300,000 units (the "Units") in the capital of Hunt Mining at the price of $0.45 per Unit (the "Unit Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to Hunt Mining of $10,035,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Corporation (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.65 per common share for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date (as defined below). The Corporation has also agreed to grant the Underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional 3,345,000 Units at the Unit Price for additional aggregate gross proceeds to Hunt Mining of $1,505,250, exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, at any time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date (the "Underwriter's Option"). If the Underwriter's Option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds to Hunt Mining will be $11,540,250.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for exploration and development work at the Company's properties in the Deseado Massif precious metal region of Santa Cruz, and for general working capital and corporate purposes.

It is expected that the closing of the Offering will occur on or about June 14, 2011 (the "Closing Date") and is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Underwriter will receive a cash commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the Offering. The Underwriter will also receive compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 7.0% of that number of Units issued in connection with the Offering (including upon exercise of the Underwriter's Option). Each Compensation Option will be exercisable to acquire one Unit on the same terms as the Offering for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date at an exercise price equal to the Unit Price, subject to regulatory approval.
