Nithi Mountain Drill Program



    Trading Symbol: LWC

    CALGARY, Dec. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - December 7, 2007 - Leeward Capital Corp.
(TSX-V: LWC) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2007 diamond
drilling program on its Nithi Mountain Moly Project located in central British
Columbia. This drilling program has systematically outlined one portion (Gamma
Zone) of a large porphyry molybdenum deposit with the objective of calculating
an NI 43-101 preliminary resource. A NI 43-101 resource report is to be
prepared by Dr. Ken Dawson and is expected to be completed in January.
    Drilling on the Gamma Zone was designed to test the moly mineralization
at 50 m drill centers. This zone, measures approximately 1,000m long by over
500m wide and remains open. A total of 94 drillholes were completed on Gamma
thus far.

    Ore samples from the Gamma Zone are currently being forwarded to G & T
Metallurgical Service for analysis. The samples consist of three 100 kg
composite samples at differing feed grades to be tested for the metallurgical
response of the ore.
    Initial drill testing of the 'Delta' and 'Sigma' zones were completed
during the final phase of the 2007 drill program. Three drillholes were
completed on the Delta Zone and twelve holes on Sigma. Data from these holes
are being used to design the next phase of exploration. Analytical results are
not available at this time.
    Airborne geophysical data gathered this summer integrated with previous
geophysical and geochemical data has further highlighted areas for future
exploration. This data outlines an extensive gradiometer low and potassium
high that has been interpreted as the expression of the area of hydrothermal
alteration on Nithi Mountain. Within this area are located all known surface
moly showings and moly-in-soil geochemical anomalies. There is a near perfect
correlation of all this data.
    In addition to our 2007 drill program, further geochemical work and
airborne geophysical work, a baseline environmental study of Nithi Mountain is
being contracted to start in 2008.
    QA/QC procedures were followed throughout the drilling and all analyses
are being completed by Loring Labs Ltd. in Calgary. Delays in assaying core
samples are due to the sheer volume of the split NQ core samples.
    Management believes that steady, significant progress is being made in
regard to developing a large open pit porphyry molybdenum deposit on Nithi
Mountain. The results received thus far on Gamma have expanded the resource
base along strike and the width of this zone. The next phase of drilling is
planned to commence in mid-January 2008 utilizing two diamond drills.
