Redhawk Announces Strategic Alliance with Howe Mining Projects Inc. to Focus on Near Term Mining Production Opportunities

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Redhawk Resources, Inc. ("Redhawk" or the "Company") (TSX:RDK)(FRANKFURT:QF7) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter agreement with Howe Mining Projects Inc. ("Howe"), a company that consists of a team of internationally known geological and mining consultants. The alliance has been formed initially to jointly pursue opportunities to acquire, develop and operate small mines and through the use of cash flow from operations develop a pipeline of longer term larger projects. The initial focus will be on precious metals with near term production capability.

Stephen Barley, Executive Chairman of Redhawk stated: "We are extremely pleased to partner with Howe in this new initiative for Redhawk. The recently announced joint venture with Anglo American provides the Company with a top tier international mining company as a joint venture partner for our Copper Creek project in Arizona with the necessary personnel in place to fulfill our obligations as operator on that project. The execution of a definitive agreement with Anglo American is anticipated to occur shortly which provides for Redhawk shareholders to retain a substantial interest and exposure to copper through the joint venture on Copper Creek."

The alliance with Howe will provide a complementary team of experienced mine analysts, developers and operators for this new initiative for Redhawk. The goal of the alliance is to finance the development of new projects through cash flow from operations. Redhawk and Howe are currently assessing multiple small gold mining projects that either are operational or can be fully permitted and operational within twelve to eighteen months; need a lower level of start-up capital; can be operated on a highly profitable basis; and have a short payback period for invested capital. The strategy is to jointly assess the viability of existing projects; complete all development work; and assemble and manage an operating team to place each project into production. Redhawk and Howe will participate in each project based upon an agreed contribution formula and intend to grow through the acquisition of a number of smaller projects, providing the necessary cash flow to enable the development of a pipeline of projects of increasing size. This model is intended to provide for increased stability and long term growth with a reduction in dilution to Redhawk stakeholders. Gold mining operations within North America will be the initial focus of the alliance with Howe.
