Southern Arc Drills 442.2 Metre Intercept Grading 0.28% Cu And 0.42 G/T Au

News Release No. 07-14

Southern Arc Minerals wishes to clarify the encouraging results from its first drill hole, MB001, completed within the Selodong Intrusive Complex (SIC).

Hole MB001 was completed to a total depth of 476.0 metres. With the exception of the first 33.8 metres, which was not mineralized, there was continuous mineralization to the bottom of the hole. This resulted in a 442.2 metre intersection averaging 0.28% Cu and 0.42 g/t Au (from 33.8 to 476.0 metres).

Hole MB001 included a 105.0 metre intersection averaging 0.60% Cu and 1.04 g/t Au (from 33.8 to 138.80 metres).

Extensions of this high-grade phase are being targeted in the ongoing drilling program by Southern Arc. Hole MD002, currently in progress, is expected to be completed within the next 8 to 10 days, with assay results anticipated to be announced later this month.
