Advanced Explorations Inc. Extends C-Zone by 800m

    TORONTO, July 22 /CNW/ - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company or
AEI") is pleased to announce new results from Zone C1 drilling on its Roche
Bay iron project in Nunavut. The Company has now completed 11 holes along an
additional 800 metres of strike north of the 2007 drilling. Drilling to the
south of the main zone has provided further delineation while drills currently
focus on definition drilling on the main zone.
    Preliminary results have been received from 8 holes drilled to the south
and north of the main zone. Hole RB-08-45 has returned a 92.6 metre interval
averaging 28.6% Fe consistent with last year's drilling in this area. Drilling
on lines 11400N and 11600N indicate the C Zone pinches to approximately
100 metres, but maintains grade. Drilling on lines 13200N and 13400N located
further north of the 2007 drilling indicates the mineralization feathers into
a number of narrow zones but also retains grade (33.8m @ 33.3% Fe in hole
    The Company is currently drilling the area between 11600N and 13200N
where 2007 drilling defined a zone of higher grade mineralization with widths
at surface up to 300 metres. In addition to this definition drilling the
company plans to start drilling the A and B zones where all but one hole of
the 1980's drilling was focused. This area has extensive bedrock exposure and
is closer to the ocean than the C Zone.

    John Gingerich, President and CEO of AEI, commented;

           "Drilling has confirmed the results of the 2007 drilling  and has
           extended mineralization approximately 800 metres to the north. The
           mineralized zones are thinner but where results have been received
           the grades have exceeded 30% Fe. So far, drill results have been
           as expected or better. The upside of the project will be revealed
           as we start drilling the A and B Zones and extend the C Zone to
           the south."

    Analysis: All the recent drill core analysis reported in this release was
performed by SGS Lakefield Research. At SGS, samples are analyzed for total Fe
using XRF techniques. SGS also undertakes Satmagan analysis to estimate the
portion of magnetic iron. The company augments the laboratory QA/QC procedures
by selectively adding additional control samples. Core sample intervals for
2007 were 1 metre and increased to 2 metres in 2008 except where intervals
cross geologic boundaries in which case the sample length is adjusted

    New Grid: The Company has redefined the exploration grid as part of the
engineering studies. The line coordinates (east-west) remain the same but the
line sections have been transformed to eliminate a grid south reference. All
previous grid lines have been increased by 14,400 metres (e.g. previous line
2800S now 11600N).
