Hathor Exploration Limited: More Off-Scale Radioactivity at Roughrider as Summer Program Continues to Infill and Extend Uranium Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2010) - Hathor Exploration Limited (TSX VENTURE:HAT - News) announces the completion of the 2010 summer drill program at its Midwest Northeast property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. Successful infill and extension drilling adds numerous intersections of massive and semi-massive pitchblende to both the Roughrider and Roughrider East uranium deposits; two examples are below.- Roughrider East - Hole MWNE-10-656A (Figure 1, Photo 1) - 8.7 m off-scale radioactivity and pitchblende mineralization within 21.5 m of anomalous radioactivity- Roughrider - Hole MWNE-10-228 (Figure 2, Photo 2) - 2.3 m off-scale radioactivity and pitchblende mineralization within 11.3 m of anomalous radioactivityOverall, the Roughrider system remains open. Aggressive drilling will continue this winter.2010 Summer Program SummaryThe 2010 summer program utilized three drill rigs. A total of 18,840 metres were completed in 52 drill holes (Figure 3). Of those, 21 holes were completed on Roughrider, including two on an aero magnetic anomaly 200 m to the northeast along-strike. A total of 31 drill holes were completed on Roughrider east, including two 60 m along-strike to the west in "the Gap", and seven holes in two transects across the resistivity anomaly to the south.This News Release covers all drill holes completed at Roughrider this summer, and the final seven drill holes at Roughrider East not included in the previous News Release dated Sept. 1, 2010. Radioactivity summaries of individual drill holes are provided at the end of this release. Complete scintilometer data are in Table 1 and Table 2 available on the Company's website at www.hathor.ca.Roughrider is proving to be a robust uranium mineralizing system.From approximately 220 drill holes that pierce the Roughrider deposit:




-- 125 drill holes have massive to semi massive pitchblende mineralization;
-- there are 607 assays from individual half metre samples with greater
than 3% U3O8;
-- 185 drill holes have anomalous radioactivity.

Drill intersections from 2010 improve significantly the continuity of mineralization at Roughrider. Figure 4 shows in two dimensions the continuity of the core zones of mineralization across the 200 metres of strike at Roughrider. The Company continues to develop three-dimensional block solid models for Roughrider based on the rigour of this detailed 2-D section work, and the new infill results. An updated NI43-101-compliant resource model for the Roughrider deposit later this fall.Roughrider East is proving to have significant mineral potential.The outline of Roughrider East shown Figure 5 encompasses mineralization intersected in drill holes across 160 metres of strike, from Line 100W to Line 60E. Overall, from a total of 53 drill holes:




-- 27 drill holes have visible semi-massive to massive pitchblende.
-- 47 drill holes have anomalous radioactivity.

The Company is currently developing a detailed outline of mineral zones in two-dimensions, on cross-sections spaced 10 m apart along the core 120 m of strike. A three-dimensional block solid model will be developed for Roughrider East once assays are received from this summer's drilling; a NI43-101-compliant resource model for Roughrider East will be considered pending this work.Figure 6 schematically summarizes the spatial relationship of alteration and mineralization discovered to date on the property. Priorities for drilling this winter will include:




-- Systematic drilling of "the Gap" west of Roughrider East where two out
of three drill holes completed to date have intersected uranium
mineralization across 1-2 metres immediately below the unconformity.
-- Further step-out drilling to the east of Roughrider East where
mineralization remains open.
-- Further evaluation of the alteration south and west of Roughrider East
via reconnaissance-scale drill testing of the 700 m resistivity anomaly
along the Midwest Trend.
-- Test the alteration associated with the aeromagnetic anomaly 200 m
along-strike to northeast of the Roughrider Deposit.

The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured, and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials. All intersections are down-hole, core-length intervals and true thickness of mineralization is yet to be determined.Terra Ventures Inc. owns a qualified 10% interest on the Property, carried to the completion of a positive feasibility study on the Roughrider Deposit.Alistair McCready, Ph.D., P.Geo., Hathor's Exploration Manager with responsibility for all of Hathor's exploration in Saskatchewan, and Michael Gunning, Ph.D., P.Geo, Hathor's Chief Operating Officer, are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and have reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.Hathor Exploration LimitedStephen G.
