Lounor finds gold at Harker



    Listing (TSXV = LO)

    ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Feb. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - LOUNOR EXPLORATION INC. is
pleased to announce very promising assay results for the first 3 diamond drill
holes at Harker.
    The Harker property is located 5 km south of the Destor Porcupine Fault
Zone (DPFZ) host of many important gold mines in the Timmins - Porcupine Gold
Mining Camp ((greater than)65 millions ounces of gold). The Holt McDermot Mine
(1.3 million ounces) and the Harker Halloway Mine (1.4 million ounces) are
located on the DPFZ about 5 km north -northeast of the property.

    
    Hole                       Meters                  Grade
    ----                       ------                  -----
    Hole 1                       2.46                   8.70 g/t Au
    Hole 2                       3.65                   2.10 g/t Au
    Hole 3     First Zone :      1.95                    1.7 g/t Au
               Second Zone :     4.47                    1.6 g/t Au
    

    The gold zone seems to be plunging to the west and is thicker than
expected. The gold values are obtained from a deformation zone included in a
much larger alteration zone.
    Lounor plans on conducting a second phase of diamond drilling. First
phase was designed to diamond drill the gold zone at 50 meters vertical depth
over a high grade section of the mineralized zone. The second phase is
designed to diamond drill the gold zone at 100 meters vertical depth over the
high grade section with three holes and two steps out holes to extend the gold
zone at 50 meters vertical depth. The drilling program will start on
February 20, 2008.
