VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 16, 2016) - Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("Redhawk" or the "Company") (TSX:RDK)(FRANKFURT:QF7) announces the termination by consent of the option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Copperzone Resources Ltd. ("Copperzone"), a private Canadian company, on four licenses held by Copperzone in Zambia, as initially announced on September 13, 2016. The Company has also cancelled the private placement announced on the same date.

Stephen Barley, Executive Chairman, stated: "We have agreed to terminate the Option Agreement with Copperzone by mutual consent.
