Global Hunter Announces Trench Results for La Corona de Cobre Project, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Global Hunter Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BOB) ("Global Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce positive results of its recently completed mapping and trenching program at its La Corona de Cobre project. Global Hunter has identified 14 prospective structures/zones including two large alteration zones in addition to Las Posadas, where Global Hunter had previously identified a National Resource 43-101 compliant copper resource (Preliminary Economic Assessment reported in news release dated September 18, 2012).

These encouraging results confirm the positive expectations from the surface sampling program carried out on the property in 2011 (News releases dated May 2 and 3, 2011) where a total of 205 rock chip samples were collected form nine shear zones on the property.

"We view these as high priority drill targets and will be aiming at expanding the known copper resource on the property. We are very encouraged by the trench results given the profile of the mineralization of on the property, where typically the top three to five metres have most of the copper leached out," stated Mike Hibbitts, VP Exploration & Development of Global Hunter Corp.

A total of 31 trenches were excavated along four of the most promising shear zones.

Ponderosa

Four trenches were excavated along 914 metres of strike length of the Ponderosa shear located 1,500 metres south of Las Posadas. The trenches were follow-up to the 18 surface samples collected along 1,000 meters of the shear from piquinero workings which averaged 1.85% CuT and 1.44% CuS.

The following table details results:

Vino Fino

Eleven trenches were excavated along 1,316 metres of strike length of the Vino Fino shear located 5,000 metres east of Las Posadas. The trenches were follow-up to the 43 surface samples collected along 5,600 meters of the shear from piquinero workings which averaged 1.20% CuT and 0.97% CuS.
