18-hole Drill Program To Commence At Canegrass High-Grade Nickel Project

VANCOUVER - Huntsman Exploration Inc. has received the Program of Work (POW) permit for the upcoming 18-hole (3,160 m) drill program at the Canegrass nickel project in Western Australia. All Points Sampling Australia Pty Ltd. and WDA Drilling have been contracted to perform drilling operations, with site work expected to commence this month. In addition, the Company has also engaged AHA Logic to undertake a Heritage study of the area to confirm compliance with the Company's knowledge of the property, and to ensure compliance with the Australian Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972. Huntsman's Australian Consultants, Newexco Exploration Pty Ltd., will be accompanying representatives from AHA Logic as they perform a site visit.

Peter Dickie, President and CEO, said, "With permits in hand, and contractors confirmed, we anticipate the commencement of drilling at Canegrass within the next two weeks. We will be following up on strong initial drill results, as well as testing a number of additional survey anomalies. Currently rated as the world's top mining jurisdiction by The Fraser Institute, Western Australia's mining sector is booming, and we are very pleased to be advancing our high-grade nickel project at this time."
