Murgor starts drilling at the Wim deposit in northern Manitoba



    MONTREAL, Aug. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (MUG: TSX-V) is
pleased to announce that a preliminary phase of drilling has started at the
Wim property in northern Manitoba. This initial program will consist of ten
drill holes (including two wedges) for a minimum of 5,500 metres. This program
is part of a more extensive drilling program that will start in January of
2008, with an additional drill. The objective of the drilling is twofold:

    
    1. To initiate definition drilling of the Wim copper-gold deposit. This
       part of the program is designed to verify historical data by
       duplicating drill holes, and to verify the continuity of the
       mineralization by drilling infill holes on the existing ore lens.
       Ultimately, the objective of this part of the drilling program is to
       upgrade the copper-gold resource at Wim to Indicated and Measured
       categories, leading to a new NI 43-101 resource estimate and a
       feasibility study (planned for the third quarter of 2009).
    2. To expand the existing copper-gold resource at Wim by testing
       extensions of the ore lens and by testing high priority geological and
       geophysical targets on the property. Among others, Murgor will be
       testing geophysical anomalies, that have never been detected before or
       that have never been drill tested, from its recent helicopter borne
       VTEM and ground INFINITEM surveys.

    The Wim deposit consists of massive to semi-massive sulphide with
gold-bearing pyrite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and minor sphalerite. To date,
the mineralized zone extends from 245 metres to 640 metres below surface, and
over a strike length of nearly 500 metres. The mineralized zone is up to 11
metres wide. The ore lens trends to the NW, is dipping 50 degrees towards the
NE, and has a general plunge of 40 degrees to the NW. The lens remains largely
open in all directions with true width intersections such as those below,
occurring at the edges of the currently interpreted lens:

      Drill hole WIM-111       2.05% Cu and 1.70 g/t Au over 5.51 metres
      Drill hole WIM-120       2.06% Cu and 1.14 g/t Au over 3.94 metres
      Drill hole WIM-118W1     7.01% Cu and 3.50 g/t Au over 1.46 metres
      Drill hole WIM-104       2.71% Cu and 4.56 g/t Au over 1.80 metres
      Drill hole WIM-98A       1.91% Cu and 1.16 g/t Au over 5.77 metres
      Drill hole WIM-114       2.10% Cu and 2.73 g/t Au over 1.66 metres

    In March of 2007, Murgor completed a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate
of the Wim deposit and determined an Inferred Resource of:

    Recent work by Murgor at the WIM property includes a 477 line kilometre
helicopter borne VTEM survey that covered the whole property and a 40 line
kilometre INFINITEM survey (a high resolution, time domain electro-magnetic
ground survey designed to detect conductors well in excess of 300 metres
vertical depths). The INFINITEM survey covered the Wim deposit and its
mineralized horizon over a strike length of 3.5 kilometres. One anomaly of
particular interest will be tested in the early course of this drilling
program. A sketch of the anomaly is shown attached to this press release on
Murgor's website at www.murgor.com. The anomaly is located on the Wim
mineralized horizon, 1.2 kilometre to the SE of the deposit. The anomaly was
never detected, and therefore never tested, in the past due to its depth.
    The Wim property is located approximately 16 kilometres north of the Town
of Snow Lake where HudBay Minerals currently operates a mill for its Chisel
North Mine. During the summer of 2007, Murgor built a drill road from Snow
Lake to the Wim deposit site that will allow year-round access to the
property.
    Murgor is earning a 100% interest in the Wim property, optioned from
HudBay Minerals Inc. (HBM: TSX) in September of 2006, along with the Hudvam,
Wim, Abbott Lake and Tyr deposits. The Fon, Hudvam and Wim deposits have a
combined NI 43-101 compliant Inferred resource of: 7,798,000 metric tonnes of
ore, containing 143,150,000 pounds of copper, 430,251,000 pounds of zinc,
221,000 ounces of gold and 2,526,000 ounces of silver (see the complete table
of resources at the end of this press release). Murgor is also earning a 50%
interest from HudBay, in two large-scale grassroots projects covering 186,104
hectares of extremely prospective ground. All properties are located in the
Flin-Flon greenstone belt of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
    The Wim Property, optioned from HudBay, covers approximately 12 square
kilometres but Murgor also holds a 100% interest in nine claims (not part of
the HudBay option) covering the strike extensions of the Wim deposit and
covering an additional 16 square kilometres.
    In other news: Murgor announces that, subject to regulatory approval, its
Board of Directors has approved an amendment to the corporation's 2004 Stock
Option Plan by reserving an additional 1,985,170 common shares for issuance
under the plan. As a result of the amendment, a total of 5,985,170 common
shares may be issued under the plan. There are currently 112,925,443 common
shares of Murgor issued and outstanding.
