Excel Gold Mining Inc. Five Month Update



    QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Excel Gold Mining Inc. (TSX-V EGM) is
pleased to announce to its shareholders that the company has made progressive
changes over the past five months. As a result of aggressive acquisitions, the
company had acquired 117 mining claims in August and is acquiring an
additional 140 mining claims in the month of October consistently in the low
lands of the Batiscan Region, Comté de Portneuf. This places Excel Gold Mining
Inc. in a solid state and keen on continuing to add properties of merit to its
current land claim package. At this time the company presents itself in good
standing as it continues to acquire the 43-101's for its properties in hand.
With a major land position in this prolific mineral area Excel Gold now plans
to undertake and announce a comprehensive exploration program to assess fully
the mineral potential of the area.
    As previously stated "The Montauban II (Batiscan) property (140
additional claims) adds to Excel Gold's strong foothold in the Batiscan area
where in August 2008 it completed the acquisition of 117 adjacent claims
comprising 4603 hectares (Montauban 1). Excel Gold's foothold in the area will
amount to 10,162.27 hectares upon completion and approval of the second
acquisition.
    Excel Gold will continue to add properties of merit to its land package.
With a major land position in this prolific mineral area Excel Gold now plans
to undertake and announce a comprehensive exploration program to assess fully
the mineral potential of the area. There are two types of formations known in
the Montauban area. The first is believed to be composed of volcanic sulphide
masses and the second is hydrothermal in which case it contains gold, silver
and copper with minor concentrations in zinc and lead.
    The successful completion of this second acquisition is subject to
certain conditions including but not limited to, the receipt of all required
approvals, including the acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors:

    Excel Gold Mining Inc.
