Redhawk Appoints John E. Black to Advisory Board

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2011) - Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("Redhawk" or the "Company") (TSX:RDK)(OTCQX:RHWKF)(FRANKFURT:QF7) is pleased to announce that John Black has accepted an appointment to Redhawk's Advisory Board. John was the founding President and CEO of Antares Minerals Inc. in 2004 and lead Antares through the exploration and development of the Haquira porphyry copper deposit leading to the successful acquisition of Antares by First Quantum Minerals Ltd. in December 2010. He has over 30 years experience as an economic geologist and holds both a B.Sc. degree in Geology and an M.S. degree in Geology-Ore Deposits Exploration from Stanford University. John gained extensive porphyry copper experience during his years with Bear Creek Mining Company, Kennecott, Rio Tinto and Western Mining Corporation.

Stephen Barley, Executive Chairman of Redhawk, commented: "We are extremely pleased to have someone of John Black's caliber join our Advisory Board. John's background in copper porphyry geology is an excellent complement to the over 200 years of combined geologic experience we have on our internal team at Redhawk. In addition his recent and highly successful sale of Antares has provided him with current and invaluable experience in regard to M&A activity in our peer group space that may become very beneficial to Redhawk as our Copper Creek project rapidly proceeds towards the completion of a pre-feasibility study in early 2012."

John Black stated: "I am pleased to become involved with Redhawk. I see a number of similarities between the evolution of the Copper Creek project and my recent experience with Antares. I look forward to sharing my geologic knowledge and business perspectives with the Redhawk team."
