Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("Redhawk" or the "Company") (TSX:RDK)(OTCQX:RHWKF)(FRANKFURT:QF7) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced private placement (the "Private Placement") by issuing 10,420,000 common shares ("Shares") of the Company at a price of $0.25 per Share for gross proceeds of $2,605,000.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company has issued 420,000 finder's warrants (each, a "Finder's Warrant") and has paid a cash finder's fee to Origin Merchant Securities Inc.

Net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for a new district drilling program at the Company's Copper Creek project, and for working capital. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period expiring February 17, 2014.

Stephen Barley, Executive Chairman commented: "We are pleased by our institutional support and the loyalty of our long term shareholders. We will move ahead with our Copper Creek project and add additional value for our stakeholders while minimizing dilution. Our efforts with CIBC concerning strategic alternatives will continue concurrently with our drilling program on the Prospect and Dark Canyon expansion targets."
