VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2011) - Crosshair Energy Corporation (TSX:CXX)(NYSE Amex:CXZ) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its 2011 drill program on the CMB Uranium/Vanadium Project located in central Labrador, Canada. This program of 19 diamond drill holes, totaling 3,138 metres, was focused on two areas within the CMB project; the structural corridor between the C Zone and Area One, as well as the Blue Star prospect, located approximately 10 kilometres northeast of the C Zone. The final set of assay results have been received for the 9 holes specifically targeting the C Zone/Area One corridor. These results, along with those received earlier, support the interpretation that the vanadium mineralization is continuous between the two zones. Highlights from this final set of assay results are presented below.

"We are very pleased that these assay results confirm our earlier interpretation of the continuity of the vanadium mineralization between the C Zone and Area One," stated Stewart Wallis, President and CEO of Crosshair, "Our next task will be to continue following this mineralization to the southwest and see just how far it extends."

Down hole gamma logs and hematitic alteration encountered in the upper portions of the holes strongly suggested that the two mineralized zones were continuous. The assay results, as presented in the table above, confirm that the mineralization is, in fact, a single continuous unit. This has enabled the mineralization to be extended approximately 200 metres to the southwest as illustrated in the map below. This map can also be viewed on our website at:

The true width of the mineralized zone is 60% to 90% of the lengths stated above. Split drill core samples were sent to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, ON for analyses. Vanadium analyses were performed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Samples that exceeded the upper limit for vanadium were re-assayed using fusion ICP. Standards, blanks, and duplicate assays were included at regular intervals in each sample batch submitted from the field as part of Crosshair's ongoing Quality Assurance/Quality Control program.

Drilling on the Blue Star prospect was aimed at following up on widely scattered coincident airborne geophysical and rock geochemical anomalies. Ten holes, totaling 1,404 metres, were completed with four holes intersecting thin uranium mineralized zones including a three metre interval which returned 0.050 U3O8%, from drill hole BS-11-006.

Uranium analysis was carried out by Activation Labs of Ancaster, Ontario utilizing the delayed neutron counting (DNC) method, while multi-element analysis was performed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Samples that exceeded the upper limit for uranium were re-assayed using X-ray fluorescence (XRF).
