VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 30, 2007 --

                    "Targeting Gold and Uranium"


Dated: January 30, 2007                                  TSX-V:  CXX
Crosshair Exploration and Mining Corp. (TSX-V: CXX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce final assays results from the 2006 exploration program at the Upper and Lower C Zones on the Central Mineral Belt Uranium property in Labrador.

* All 58 holes drilled in 2006 successfully intercepted
  uranium mineralization.
* The thickest and highest grades ever reported occur both
  in the Upper and Lower C Zones.
* The Upper C Zone has now been extended 750 meters along
  strike and 350 meters down dip (250 meters vertically).
* The Upper C Zone is open for expansion both along strike
  and to depth.
* The Lower C Zone has been traced for 700 meters on strike
  and down dip for 500 meters and remains open for expansion.
Within the Upper C Zone that is emerging as the main corridor of mineralization, a zone of thicker and higher uranium grade material has been identified. Significant intercepts include:

  * ML-3 intersected 0.10% U3O8 over 12.90 meters.
  * ML-11 intersected 0.12% U3O8 over 14.63 meters (48.25 meters @
    0.05% U3O8).
  * ML-12 intersected 0.10% U3O8 over 9.00 meters.
  * ML-20 intersected 0.14% U3O8 over 30.30 meters.
  * ML-32 intersected 0.14% U3O8 over 28.90 meters.

  ML-40 intersected 0.10% U308 over 13.15 meters (41.50 meters @
  0.05% U3O8).
  ML-44 intersected 0.10% U3O8 over 9.15 meters.
  ML-56 intersected 0.10% U308, over 6.13 meters (31.90 meters @
  0.05% U308).
This zone will be one of the main targets of the upcoming winter drill program.

Nine holes were drilled into the Lower C Zone (100 meters stratigraphically below the Upper C). The Lower C Zone was extended 500 meters down dip from the original Shell Canada Resources drilling in 1979. The new intercepts have significantly higher grades and thickness when compared to the historical results and include the following significant intercepts:

  ML-44 intersected 6.10 meters of 0.10% U308
  ML-47 intersected 4.50 meters of 0.10% U308
A new resource estimate will be compiled using results from the 58 diamond drill holes completed in 2006.

The 2007 drill program will be expanded with a significant increase in drilling in both the Upper and Lower C Zones. Maps and full assays from the 2006 program have been posted on the Company website at

About Crosshair

Crosshair is an aggressive uranium and gold exploration and development Company with select projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Company has developed into a dominant player in the exploration for uranium in the Central Mineral Belt of Labrador. The 685 sq km Moran Lake Uranium / IOCG Project is host to potentially three significant types of uranium mineralization - Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG - Olympic Dam), structurally controlled, shear zone ("Michelin") and unconformity types of mineralization. In addition, through option agreements with Rubicon Minerals Corporation, Crosshair has secured a position in one of the most prospective massive sulphide districts in Canada as well as a promising early stage high grade gold property at South Golden Promise and Golden Promise.
