SPOKANE, WASHINGTON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Hunt Mining Corp. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: HMX) is pleased to announce it has added the La Valenciana / La Josefina project in Santa Cruz, Argentina to its Exploration Agreement with Eldorado Gold Corporation ("Eldorado"). The La Valenciana project lies to the west of and is contiguous with the Corporation's La Josefina project.

As part of Eldorado's acceptance of the La Valenciana / La Josefina project into the Exploration Agreement, the Corporation will receive a onetime payment of $325,000 and ongoing yearly lease payments of $125,000, as long as the La Valenciana / La Josefina project is considered a Stage II project under the Eldorado Exploration Agreement.

It is anticipated that under the Eldorado Exploration Agreement, the Corporation will initiate drilling at La Valenciana and continue new drill-target development at La Josefina in 2013. Mr. Matt Hughes, the Corporation's CEO, stated, "This represents a significant achievement for the Corporation. By including these projects in the existing Eldorado Exploration Agreement, we will have the opportunity to advance both projects at a much faster rate than would otherwise be likely under the current circumstances and market conditions."
