Redhawk Announces Issuing of Drilling Contracts and Appointment of VP Business Development

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) - Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("Redhawk" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RDK)(FRANKFURT:QF7) is pleased to announce the appointment of Bud LaCombe as VP Business Development. Stephen Barley, Managing Director, stated: "We are pleased to add Bud LaCombe to our team. Bud is a successful senior executive with extensive experience in sales, marketing and building successful teams in multiple industries and as he is based in the US he will focus on strategic relationships with US based investors and potential business partners."

Redhawk Copper, Inc., the Company's US subsidiary has contracted BJ Drilling of Benson, AZ for rotary pre-collar drilling and Major Drilling America, Inc. of Salt Lake City UT for core drilling at Redhawk's Copper Creek project targeting under evaluated or untested higher grade porphyry targets. Holes will be pre-collared up to 2,000 feet in depth and cased for completion with core drilling. Rotary drilling is expected to begin before the end of June and core drilling is expected to begin in early to mid July. Final core drilling depths may reach 4,000 feet as a number of new drill targets, in areas previously unexplored, are tested for potential "higher grade" deposits hosted by mafic rocks. Five areas of coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies coupled with strong alteration and favorable geology for mafic host rocks have been identified over the last six months and are the focus of the drilling program.

About Redhawk

Redhawk is a Canadian-based resource exploration and development company with primary focus on the accelerated development of its advanced stage Copper Creek copper-molybdenum project in San Manuel, Arizona. The Company also has a gold/silver property in Nevada.

The 100% owned Copper Creek property consists of approximately seven square miles of almost totally contiguous patented and unpatented mining claims and state prospecting permits, located about 70 miles northeast of Tucson, Arizona and about 15 miles east of San Manuel. The property is in the prolific southwest US porphyry copper belt at the projected intersection of a major northwest belt of porphyry copper deposits or mines (Ray, Miami/Globe, Superior/Resolution, Johnson Camp) and a major east-northeast belt of porphyry deposits (San Manuel/Kalamazoo, Silver Bell, Lakeshore, Safford, Morenci). The property is within sight of the former BHP Kalamazoo/San Manuel copper smelter and mine and within 30 miles of an existing operating copper smelter. The area is a mining friendly and politically secure location with excellent and readily accessible infrastructure.
