Mediterranean expands Tac resource mineralization



    VANCOUVER, June 14 /CNW/ - Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MNR,
Frankfurt: MHM1) (the "Company") today announced drill hole results that
expand the mineralization determined in the NI 43-101 compliant resource
estimate announced February 7, 2007 for its Tac gold property in northeastern
Turkey.
    By news release dated April 5, 2007, the Company announced it had
commenced a 5,000 metre diamond core drill program at Tac that will lead to an
update of the compliant resource estimate. The drilling will expand on the
significant gold and copper mineralization found in the existing resource,
both along strike and down dip of the area tested to date where drilling in
2006 was too widely spaced to permit a confident interpretation of the
resource area extent and limits.
    Drill hole TD-104, drilled to a depth of 296 metres confirming the
southeast extent of the T-6 Valley mineralized zone, has intersected a
mineralized interval grading 0.80 g/t Au over 49.6 metres including 5.86 g/t
Au and 0.36 % Cu over 6.6 metres. Another interval graded 2.15 g/t Au and
0.62% Cu over 3.2 metres. Drill holes TD-105 and TD-106 drilled to depths of
230 metres and 208 metres respectively, indicate near surface gold and copper
mineralization and confirm the location of the southern boundary of the
300 metre wide gold corridor at Karsibayir. Significant gold and copper
intersections returned from drill hole TD-107 drilled to a vertical depth of
270 metres (one interval returned 3.36 g/t Au and 2.13% Cu over one metre)
confirm the near surface northeast extent of the Karsibayir mineralized zone
and indicate this zone to be open further to the northeast. Drill holes TD-108
and TD-109 drilled to depths of 200 metres and 255 metres respectively from
the same location on -60 degree dip angles and headings 180 degrees apart also
returned significant gold and copper intersections and confirm the northeast
extension of the Karsibayir mineralized zone.

showing the mineralized gold zones and drill hole locations.

    Approximately 3,370 metres of drilling has been completed at Tac, with
the results of approximately 1,459 metres from 6 drill holes reported above.
Assay results from approximately 1,950 metres of drilling from 10 drill holes
are pending. These results are expected to be received in six weeks from the
time the hole is drilled and logged and will then be released. The 5,000 metre
drill campaign is expected to be completed by the end of August, 2007. This
will allow for additional drilling, if required, before completing an update
of the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate by the end of this year.
    In accordance with the revised mining laws of Turkey, the Company's
subsidiary, Akdeniz Resources Madencilik Ltd., has received a VAT (Value Added
Tax) reimbursement from the Turkish Government Treasury of approximately
US$443,000 under an exemption granted to mineral exploration companies from
paying VAT on gold exploration activities.
    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 saw more then US$4 million of exploration by a major
international mining company during the 1990's and US$3.1 million of
exploration by the Company in 2006 which led to the Company acquiring an
undivided interest in the properties.
    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 also carrying out a
15,000 metre drill campaign at Corak with the goal of completing a NI 43-101
compliant resource estimate by the end of 2007. Please visit
