Canadian Gold Hunter Corp.: New Gold-Rich Copper Zone Found North of the Donnelly Zone at the GJ/Kinaskan Project

Sep 21, 2006 - 04:50 ET


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 21, 2006) - Canadian Gold Hunter Corp. (the "Company") (TSX:CGH) is pleased to announce that a new mineralized zone has been discovered on the GJ/Kinaskan property. The new zone, which lies directly north of the west end of the Donnelly Zone and is referred to as the Donnelly North Zone, is underlain by a large IP anomaly that is about 1,100 metres by 500 metres in area. Highlights of drilling in this new zone are hole CGH-06-099, which intersected 189 metres grading 0.220% copper and 0.416 g/t gold, including 82.3 metres grading 0.334% copper and 0.627 g/t gold and CGH-06-103, which intersected 126.9 meters grading 0.264% copper and 0.331 g/t gold, including 91.4 metres grading 0.300% copper and 0.401 g/t gold.

In addition, deep drilling on the west end of the Donnelly Zone was very encouraging. Hole CGH-095 intersected 192.0 metres grading 0.302% copper and 0.463 g/t gold. Hole CGH-06-100, which was drilled entirely within the hangingwall rocks, south of the high grade portion of the Donnelly Zone intersected the thickest interval of mineralization to date, 568.9 metres grading 0.214% copper and 0.242 g/t gold, with several higher grade intervals contained within.

Donnelly Zone copper-gold mineralization has now been traced for 1670 metres in an east-west direction from hole 06-104 in the west to hole 05-080 in the east. The new mineralization expands the north-south extent of the mineralization to about 700 metres and the deep mineralization in hole CGH-06-100 expands the vertical extent of the zone to 600 metres from 1600 metres ASL in hole CGH 023 in the eastern part of the Donnelly Zone to 1000 metres ASL in CGH-100. Please see attached plan map.

The new mineralized zone and the deep drilling on the main part of the Donnelly will clearly add significantly to the resource base. Much work is needed on the new zone in order to understand ore controls and delineate additional high-grade areas. The newly discovered mineralization is gold rich, having about twice the gold-to-copper ratio of the main Donnelly Zone.

The drill program on the Donnelly Zone and the Donnelly North Zone is almost complete and the camp will be shut down within a week. The drill program will total about 18,200 metres in 61 drill holes. Assay results from 27 drill holes have been reported leaving an additional 34 holes to report. These results will be released as they become available.

CGH is engaged in gold exploration focused on Canadian projects. The Company has a 100% interest in the GJ/Kinaskan project. The Company will also be drilling its Manson Creek gold project in central B.C. in the fall of 2006.

The 2006 drill program and sampling protocol are being supervised by qualified person David Mehner, P.Geo., Project Geologist for Canadian Gold Hunter. Appropriate quality control and quality assurance protocols are utilized on the program. Standard reference samples are inserted in each batch of assays. The Canadian Gold Hunter drill samples are analyzed for gold by fire assay and for copper and silver by "ICP" at ALS Chemex in North Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Drill core samples are prepared and analyzed by ALS Chemex in accordance with industry standards. Drill results and technical data are reviewed by Dr. Giles Peatfield, P.Eng., a Qualified Person pursuant to NI 43-101, prior to release. Dr. Peatfield is independent of the Company. True thicknesses are not accurately known at this time; in some cases they may be less than the core lengths reported.

This News Release contains forward looking statements which are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward looking statements. The Company does not intend to update this information and disclaims any legal liability to the contrary.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
