Advanced Explorations Inc. Announces Filing of NI 43-101 Technical Report

    TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company" or
"AEI") is pleased to announce that the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate
(the "Resource Estimate") for its Roche Bay Magnetite Project has been
completed by Golder Associates and filed on SEDAR. As previously reported on
March 12th, 2009, the global resource estimate for the project's C-Zone
amounts to 357.0 million tonnes at an average grade of 28% iron to a depth of
250 metres below surface.

    John Gingerich, President & CEO of AEI, commented:

    "With the completion of the NI 43-101 Technical Report we have achieved a
    significant milestone for the Company. It will enable us to finalize the
    project's economic study which represents a key element to demonstrating
    the strength of our project to potential strategic partners and
    investors. As the C-Zone is only one of the five deposits comprising the
    entire property, we are confident that we have a large resource with an
    excellent life-of-mine prospect".

    The National Instrument NI 43-101 compliant Resource Estimate was
completed by Golder Associates Ltd. ("Golder") in conformance with the CIM
Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. It is the Roche Bay Magnetite
Project's first NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate that AEI has published for
the deposit and is based on 92 NQ holes from the 2007 and 2008 exploration
programs on C-Zone completed under the direction of AEI. Please see resource
details below.

    (xx) Magnetics is reported directly by SGS Lakefield Research Limited
         (SGS) laboratory as % Fe(3)0(4) and is the percentage of contained
         magnetics based on Satmagan test work. It assumes that all recovered
         material is magnetite. Golder accepts this as reasonable considering
         the pyrrhotite content is low as demonstrated by the sulphur assays.

    Golder considers that for the purpose of public reporting it is
appropriate to use the 25% iron cut-off grade which defines an Inferred
Mineral Resource of 357.0 million tonnes at an average grade of 28.07% iron to
a depth of 250 metres below surface. AEI has advised Golder that they have
preliminary metallurgical test work and studies to suggest an economically
viable product can be produced from material of this grade.
    The mineral resource estimate for the Roche Bay Magnetite Project was
completed under the supervision of qualified persons (Mr. Paul Palmer, PGeo.,
P.Eng of Golder and Dr. Bill Shaw, FAIG, RPGeo FAusIMM, CPGeo of Golder
Associates Pty Ltd in Australia) who have provided written permission for the
release of this resource estimate in the form and context in which it is
provided here.
    The Company also wishes to announce that Jim Doak has resigned from the
board of directors as he is obligated to fulfill other commitments. AEI thanks
Jim Doak for his service and wishes him every success in his future endeavors.
The Company's AGM will be called shortly and additional Board members will be
added then.
