    Shares Outstanding; 361.6 Million
    Symbol & Exchange: BN-TSXV

    MONTREAL, Nov. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Blue Note Mining Inc. announces the
acquisition of additional mineral claims in the vicinity of its 100% owned
Armstrong and Orvan Brook properties. These properties are located in close
proximity to Blue Note's Caribou mine. The acquisitions were executed with the
signing of four option agreements with nearby claim owners and through claim
staking.
    The Armstrong project area is underlain by geological units considered to
be very prospective for the discovery of new zinc-lead-silver mineralization.
The company is planning a large-scale ground geophysical survey at Armstrong
using the Titan 24 system for the late fall 2007 and winter 2008 period (see
news release dated July 19, 2007). The survey is designed to investigate the
under-explored deeper portion of the lithologies hosting the historical
Armstrong A and B deposits.
    "The acquisition of these new properties significantly increases the
Armstrong/Orvan Brook project area and allows us to expand the
deep-penetrating geophysical survey planned for this fall. The survey will now
cover the most prospective lithologies located in the Armstrong area," said
Christopher Zahovskis, Vice President Operations of Blue Note.
    Under the first option agreement, signed on June 15, 2007, the Company
may acquire a 100-per-cent undivided interest in property by making cash
payments totaling $22,000 over a two-year period. The property comprises nine
mineral claims covering a total of 1.44 square kilometers.
    Under the second option agreement, signed on July 11, 2007, the Company
may acquire a 100-per-cent undivided interest in property by issuing shares of
the Company in the equivalent of $25,000 cash based on the closing price of
the Company share on the signing date of the agreement. Further to the
acquisition, the property will be subject to a 1.5-per-cent net smelter return
where 50-per-cent can be purchased back by the Company at any time for
$500,000. The property comprises 68 mineral claims covering a total of 10.88
square kilometers.
    Under the third option agreement, signed on September 9, 2007, the
Company may acquire a 100-per-cent undivided interest in property by making
cash payments totaling $45,000 and issuing 45,000 shares of the Company over a
three-year period. Further to the acquisition, the property is subject to a
2-per-cent net smelter return where 100-per-cent can be purchased back by the
Company at any time for $2,000,000. The property comprises 67 mineral claims
covering a total of 10.72 square kilometers.
    Under the forth option agreement, signed on October 17, 2007, the Company
may acquire a 100-per-cent undivided interest in property by making cash
payments totaling $60,000 and incurring $30,000 in exploration expenditures
over a five-year period. Further to the acquisition, the property is subject
to a 2-per-cent net smelter return where 50-per-cent can be purchased back by
the Company at any time for $1,000,000. The property comprises seven mineral
claims covering a total of 1.12 square kilometers.
    In addition to the above-mentioned agreements, the Company acquired 200
new mineral claims totaling 32 square kilometers through claim staking. The
new claims were recorded between March 19 and October 23, 2007 and cover
ground located in the vicinity of the Armstrong/Orvan Brook properties.
