Uranium Hunter Prepares to Initiate Advanced Field Work on Kibaale Project

TORONTO--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Uranium Hunter Corporation (OTCBB: URHN) ("Uranium Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce plans to initiate advanced field program on its Kibaale Project in Western Uganda in anticipation of aerial survey results.

Uranium Hunter has been awaiting the release of the overdue geophysical data of the Aerial Survey by the Ugandan government. Immediately on receipt, the data pertaining to uranium will be interpreted and appropriate additional groundwork will be planned and implemented in order to identify targets for detailed groundwork and potential drilling.

As previously reported, initial review of historical aerial survey results indicated that Kagadi had highly radioactive granite in the neighbourhood of a NNE fault separating the granite from the Basement Complex Schist. The NNE fault line extends to the Nkoko area. The survey covered the whole of southern Uganda up to one degree north, which included the southern components of both Kagadi and Nkoko EL areas. The results showed enhanced radiometric values in the range of 2500-3250 cps in Kagadi EL area and over 3250 cps in Nkoko EL area (the Kibaale project).

This was followed by a preliminary field work program completed by NPK Resources in November 2007, which confirmed the presence of increased radiation 2-4 times the general background, although less than the 3250 CPS indicated in the first airborne geophysics. Since this was simply a reconnaissance survey, the NPK team restricted themselves to roads and tracks where access by vehicle was possible. Target areas are now clearly confirmed, and a systematic ground exploration program will commence upon interpretation of the aerial survey results.
