Murgor Resources acquires Red Lake Gold Properties

    KINGSTON, ON, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (MGR: TSX-V)
announces that it has acquired the right to earn a 100% interest in two gold
exploration properties near Red Lake, Ontario.

    The Gullrock Property consists of eight claims located one kilometer east
of Goldcorp's Red Lake property and on strike with the Campbell-Red Lake Gold
Mine. The property covers 1,409 hectares of what is known as "the Mine trend"
south-east of Red Lake. The "Mine Trend" hosts the Campbell-Red Lake,
Cochenour-Willans and the MacKenzie Gold Mines where more than 20 million
ounces of gold have been mined to date. Reserves stand at 3.6 million gold
ounces at the Campbell-Red Lake Mine (Goldcorp's annual report 2008). Despite
the fact that the Gullrock property geology bears similar geology as the
Campbell-Red Lake Mine setting, the property has seen very limited exploration
work and its exploration potential is deemed excellent. Murgor has already
identified untested geophysical anomalies on the property that coincide with
gold in soil geochemical anomalies. These exploration targets will be tested
in 2009-2010. Under the terms of the option, Murgor will earn a 100% interest
in the property by making aggregate cash payments of $88,500, issuing a total
of 120,000 common shares over a period of 48 months and by incurring $50,000
of exploration expenditures over a period of 12 months.

    The Premiere Property is located in the Uchi Belt and consists of three
mining claims covering 524 hectares. The property is located immediately south
of the Hudson-Patricia mine which produced 1900 ounces of gold with an average
grade of 0.165 oz/ton. The property covers the Rouillard and the Particia-Dent
exploration shafts. At both localities, gold is hosted by quartz veins ranging
in width from 40 cm to 1.0 meter wide grades of up to 0.64 ounces per ton.
During due diligence work, Murgor geologists collected three grab samples that
returned assays of 128.5 g/t, 116.2 g/t and 9.0 g/t gold. The Premiere
Property has seen very limited exploration work and is deemed as having great
exploration potential. Under the terms of the option, Murgor will earn a 100%
interest in the property by making aggregate cash payments of $73,000 and
issuing a total of 180,000 over a period of 48 months.
