Uranium Hunter Appoints Director of Exploration for Tanzania

TORONTO--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Uranium Hunter Corporation (OTCBB: URHN) is pleased to announce that Richard Speir has joined the company as Director of Exploration. Richard has over 35 years of experience in the mining industry wherein he has worked with international mining companies on both grass root and advanced staged projects. He has spent the last 25 years focusing on exploration in Tanzania wherein he has worked on numerous projects managing exploration, forecasting exploration potential, managing, sampling and target selection, and aerial survey interpretation. Richard is a Member of the Tanzanian Chamber of Mines.

Commenting on the appointment, Adam Cegielski, President and CEO, stated, "Richard has years of experience in mineral exploration in Africa. Given his considerable experience in mining operations, particularly in Tanzania, Richard adds new depth and strength to Uranium Hunter as we move forward with our business plan. As a result of the recent rise in the price of Uranium and the mining sector in general, finding experienced technical expertise can be a serious challenge. His managerial experience, professional field skills, technical knowledge and leadership will be invaluable as we expand our operations in Tanzania."

Richard stated, "I am very pleased to be involved in this dynamic project. The Ruhuhu property shares many common features of properties which have become prolific producers of Uranium. We are looking forward to starting field exploration shortly."
