Hawthorne Files New Technical Report For Table Mountain Property

 Hawthorne Gold Corp. ("Hawthorne" or the "Company") (TSX-V: HGC) is pleased to announce that an updated Technical Report (the "Technical Report") prepared pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") for its Table Mountain Property dated May 18, 2010 has been filed on SEDAR by the Company and will be available for viewing in the near future at www.sedar.com.

The purpose of the Technical Report was to review recent surface diamond drilling work conducted on the Table Mountain Property, review recent data compilation work, calculate existing NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resources and define high potential exploration and development targets.

The Technical Report authors reviewed and evaluated the data and calculated an up-dated mineral resource for the property using 3D mine modeling software. The following table provides a summary of the results:

    Category Tonnes Au g/t Au cut g/t Density
    Indicated Total 21,471 18.02 16.24 2.70
    Inferred Total 65,757 24.3 20.12 2.70

A total of 208 diamond drill holes were used in the calculation of the mineral resources reported, comprising both surface and underground drilling from recent and historical drill programs. Diamond drill hole spacing for the holes used was generally 15 meters, but varied from 5 meters to 30 meters both along strike and dip of the veins. These drill holes were used to build a 3D geological block model for the areas reported as Mineral Resources. Grade shells were built around the drill hole data and areas estimated to grade less than 3 g/t Gold were excluded from the tabulation. In addition, a grade capping factor was applied. Gold grades greater than 68 g/t were cut to 68 g/t, noting that a nugget effect is well documented on the property. Mineral resource tonnage and grade was then calculated using MineSight following NI 43-101 reporting protocol. In the Cusac and Main Mine, areas defined within 0 to 30 meters of a drill hole intercept were reported as inferred mineral resources. In the East Bain, because of greater geological certainty due to recent drilling, areas defined within 0-15m of drill hole intercept were reported as indicated mineral resources and areas between 15 and 30 meters from a drill hole intercept report as inferred mineral resources.

The authors of the Technical Report recommended underground and surface drilling programs to improve the confidence levels for the reported mineral resources, upgrade inferred mineral resources to indicated mineral resources and to discover new mineral resources.

In compliance with NI 43-101, Clifford A. Pearson, P. Geo and F. J. Bakker, P. Geo, are the Qualified Persons who prepared or supervised the preparation of the technical information presented in this news release and are also the co-authors of the Technical Report. Messrs. Pearson and Bakker have read and approved the contents of this news release.
