Breakwater Provides Update On Its Mochito Mine

    Breakwater Resources Ltd. ("Breakwater") (TSX-BWR)

    TORONTO, Dec. 6 /CNW/ - Milling operations at the Mochito mine, located
in Honduras, have returned to normal levels and the Company is currently
depositing tailings in the Pozo Azul tailings impoundment area. On October 18,
2007, the Company announced that it had discovered a discharge of water from
the newly commissioned Soledad tailings impoundment area which necessitated a
suspension of milling at Mochito. It was determined that recommissioning the
Pozo Azul tailings impoundment area, for which permitting remained in place,
would be the quickest method of returning Mochito to full production. Mining
continued throughout this period and construction is underway at Pozo Azul to
increase the capacity of this tailings impoundment area to hold up to 24
months of additional material while plans are being formulated to repair
