    VANCOUVER, Dec. 18 /CNW/ -

    Moly Dome, Nevada:
    Mexivada has completed three core drill holes of the Phase 1 exploration
program at its Moly Dome molybdenum-rhenium-gold-silver project in northern
Nevada, and the drill rig has been demobilized. The cores are being logged and
split at the company's field office in Owyhee, Nevada. Samples from the top
165 metres of hole 2007-1 have been delivered to the assay lab. Interpretation
of the results will commence upon completion of the core logging, and results
will be reported after receipt of geochemical analyses for molybdenum, rhenium
and silver and fire assays for gold. Molybdenite mineralization was noted in
all 3 drill holes however no conclusions can be drawn as to the nature or
extent of such mineralization prior to the receipt of assays.

    La Republica, Yécora District, Mexico:
    Mexivada Mining Corp. has completed 7 of 10 planned holes at its La
Republica silver property. Drilling is scheduled to resume on January 8th
2008. The company is still awaiting assay results.

    Mayoko Gold and Diamonds Projects, ROC Republic of Congo:
    Mexivada continues its steady program of detailed geologic and sampling
evaluation of the 8 by 23+ kilometre long Mayoko Greenstone belt, focusing on
the 10 km long Bingoumi-Lemagna sector of the northern gold belt, where lode
gold occurrences have been found by tracing placer gold "leads" upstream to
their source rocks in this prospective area. Bingoumi is the most favorable
sector found to date, where gold-mineralization to 7 metres in true width has
been found and sampled. Particles of gold weighing up to 4.4 grams have been
liberated from rocks at Bingoumi by crushing and obtaining panning
concentrates, on site. Channel samples from this area have been sent from
Mayoko by Mexivada to ISO-certified assay labs in Johannesburg. The field
crews will break for Christmas and return for work on January 3, 2008. Data
from Mexivada's 2007 field research program in the ROC for gold and diamonds
is being compiled and interpreted by company staff in Brazzaville and Nevada,
with help from third party researchers in Australia and with the U.S.
Geological Survey. An airborne magnetometry - VTEM survey for both gold and
diamonds is being planned for the 2008 summer field season.
