Mediterranean confirms expansion of Tac Resource mineralization



    VANCOUVER, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MNR,
Frankfurt: MHM1) (the "Company") today announced further drill hole results in
the Ugur, Karsibayir and T-6 Valley zones that expands the mineralization
determined in the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate announced February 7,
2007 for its Tac gold property in northeastern Turkey.
    Results from seven diamond drill holes drilled to an average depth of
approximately 236 metres confirm the extension of the gold and copper
mineralization over an approximate 800 metre strike length from the T-6 Valley
in the southwest through Karsibayir to the northeast. Drill hole TD-121
drilled to a depth of 401 metres returned 12.26 g/t gold and 0.50% copper over
3.4 metres and 6.67 g/t gold and 0.83% copper over 3.3 metres confirming the
extension of gold and copper mineralization of the T-6 Valley to Karsibayir
mineralization further to the northeast. The results from both drill hole
TD-119, with relatively weaker mineralization, and TD-120 drilled to 209
metres and 374 metres respectively in the centre of the zone as infill holes
confirm the mineralization trend and expand the mineralization in the zone.
Drill hole TD-120 returned 1.71 g/t gold and 0.18% copper over 26.0 metres
including 4.22 g/t gold and 0.22% copper over 7.4 metres near surface. Another
infill drill hole, TD-114 drilled approximately 200 metres to the northeast of
TD-119 and TD-120 to a depth of 200 metres, also confirms this trend and
returned values including 3.57 g/t gold and 0.91% copper over 7.6 metres.
Drill hole TD-115 drilled to a depth of 196 metres in the Ugur zone confirms
the widening of the "gold corridor" to the northwest. This hole was drilled on
the same drill fence TD-110 through TD-112 the results of which were reported
August 8, 2007. Drill holes TD-116 and TD-117 drilled to depths of 169 metres
and 102 metres respectively in the T-6 Valley confirm the expansion of the
mineralization to the west. The results from these holes will serve to enhance
the metal values contained in the volume of material considered in the
resource estimate.

showing the mineralized gold zones and drill hole locations.

    Approximately 5,400 metres of drilling has been completed at Tac, with
the results of approximately 4,100 metres from 17 drill holes reported to
date. Assay results from approximately 1,300 metres of drilling from 5 drill
holes are pending. These results will be released as they become available.
The 10,000 metre drill campaign is expected to be completed by the end of
November, 2007 and an update of the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate
expected by March 31, 2008.
    Dr. Peter Guest is the qualified person who has reviewed the data
indicated in this news release. The ALS Chemex Vancouver laboratory is using
standard fire assay and atomic absorption methods in performing all gold and
multi-element analyses. True widths of the narrow high grade veins reported
are indeterminable at this stage.

    About Mediterranean Resources Ltd.

    Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (the "Company") acquires and develops
advanced stage mineral properties of demonstrated potential. Currently the
Company is actively working on its two 100% owned properties in Turkey, Tac
and Corak, that lie along a common mineralized trend with Tac approximately
8 kilometres to the northeast of Corak. These properties experienced more than
US$4 million of exploration by a major international mining company during the
early 1990s and US$3.1 million of exploration by the Company in 2006 which led
to the Company acquiring an undivided interest in them.
    During 2006, the Company outlined at the Tac Property a NI 43-101
compliant Indicated Resource of 773,313 ozs of gold and 34,220,429 lbs of
copper on an uncapped basis with average grades of 2.01 g/t gold and 0.13%
copper at a 1.0 g/t gold cut-off. The Company is conducting a 10,000 metre
drill program at Tac with the goal of updating the compliant resource estimate
by the first quarter, 2008. The Company is also carrying out a 20,000 metre
drill campaign at Corak with the goal of completing a NI 43-101 compliant
resource estimate also by the end of the first quarter, 2008. Please visit
