<p><location>HALIFAX</location>, <chron>Nov. 4</chron> /CNW/ - Acadian Mining Corporation (TSX: ADA) ("Acadian" or the "Company") announced the results of the first 3 diamond drill holes of the recently completed 13 hole program totalling 2360.5 meters on the Beaver Dam gold property, Nova Scotia. The 3 holes reported below are in-fill drill holes on 12.5 m line spacing designed to increase the confidence level of the current resource. The current resource is based on drilling on a 25 m line spacing and 20 m along the line grid pattern. The ultimate objective is to move the project, which is being evaluated for both its bulk tonnage-open pit potential and underground potential at depth, to the feasibility stage. Further exploration drilling is also planned with the objective of expanding resources.</p>
<p>The highlights of drill holes BD-09-140 to BD-09-142 are presented in the table below. Drill hole BD-09-142 terminated in old mine workings and as a result did not fully intersect the target zone.</p>

<p/>
<p>The Beaver Dam Main Zone as presently defined has a strike length of 725 meters and averages approximately 30 meters in width. Drilling to date has generally been to shallow depths to support a potential bulk tonnage - open pit development plan. However, limited deep drilling to date demonstrates the continuity of the gold zones to depth, and supports the potential for a gold deposit amenable to underground mining methods below the open pit target.</p>
<p>The current resource at Beaver Dam is comprised of cut indicated resources of 446,000 oz. gold (9.08 million tonnes grading 1.53 g/t gold) and cut inferred resources of 504,000 oz. gold (10.40 million tonnes grading 1.50 g/t gold). Details of the Beaver Dam resources are described in the "Technical Report on the Updated Mineral Resource Estimate", effective date <chron>July 16, 2007</chron> and filed on SEDAR <chron>September 17, 2007</chron>.</p>
