Nevada Exploration Inc. ("NGE") announces operational updates

    MONTREAL, June 12 /CNW Telbec/ - NGE is pleased to announce the following
operational updates:

    HydroProbe Permitting Completed for 287 Additional Holes

    NGE has received final approval from the Bureau of Land Management in
Nevada ("BLM") to drill 287 permitted Hydroprobe Drill holes specifically to
test ground water to further define anomalous concentrations of gold on NGE's
properties and to add strategic new information to NGE's existing database.
Ken Tullar, Chief Operating Officer of NGE stated "We are delighted with our
working relationship with the BLM and we believe that we will continue to be
able to obtain approvals from them in a timely manner to utilize our
environmentally low-impact, cost-effective and proprietary water chemistry
drilling system. We are very encouraged by our results to date and have
therefore acquired an additional Hydroprobe Drill and crew so that we can
accelerate our exploration on our existing properties and strategically add
new properties as results warrant. NGE's proprietary water chemistry drilling
system is an important part of NGE's risk management strategy to build a
pipeline of targets where target identification, acquisition, delineation,
permitting and drill site construction has been completed well in advance of
obtaining an RC Drill Rig. NGE is unique in being able to spread exploration
risk over many targets that all have highly anomalous gold in water chemistry
similar to known gold mines."

    Agreement with Diversified Drilling LLC

    Permitting with the United States Forest Service for 20 drill sites has
been approved at NGE's Fletcher Junction property. Bonding, access road and
drill site construction have been completed and NGE is now awaiting
procurement of a Reverse Circulation Drill Rig ("RC Drill Rig"). In addition,
second phase drilling at the Hot Pot property will be directed by the results
of recent in-fill groundwater, soil, and soil-gas chemistry surveys and is
also awaiting procurement of an RC Drill Rig. Both Fletcher Junction and Hot
Pot are 100% owned by NGE.
    NGE is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with
Diversified Drilling, LLC which provides NGE with a right of first refusal to
lease the next available RC Drill Rig in their fleet. Diversified has stated
to NGE that they expect to be able to deliver a Rig at any time between July 1
and September 1, 2007, but there can be no assurances in this regard.
Diversified has also agreed to assign their most experienced crew to this
drilling program. Mr. Tullar stated "We are working diligently with
Diversified to receive an RC Drill Rig in a timely manner considering the
current shortage of drilling equipment and crews in the industry. Arrival of
an RC Drill Rig will add the final element to our strategy of providing the
industry with a steady stream of highly prospective gold exploration projects
under active exploration. Meanwhile, we are using the time prior to RC
drilling very efficiently by better refining and delineating our RC Drill
program based upon our exploration and water chemistry analysis so that our
drilling program will be as efficient and effective as possible"

    Land Acquisition and Exploration Update

    On May 16, NGE reported that it had a total of ten properties or more
than 40 square miles under control. Specifically, NGE has completed the
staking of 1,276 claims on eight properties, plus 3.5 square miles of private
land for a total of 43.4 square miles under control. Another 200 claims are in
the process of being staked on an additional target for another 6.3 square
miles. Negotiations with a private mineral title holder on another target are
also proceeding now that management of NGE was able to satisfy themselves on
certain land title issues that had been identified but now have been
satisfactorily resolved. Additional targets continue to be identified and will
be acquired as reconnaissance results warrant. This is part of NGE's stated
strategy of acquiring properties with gold in water anomalies similar to known
gold mines previously identified using NGE's proprietary water sampling

    About NGE

    NGE is an exploration company focused, through its wholly-owned Nevada
incorporated subsidiary Pediment Gold LLC, on gold exploration in Nevada. NGE
has 100% ownership interest in the mineral rights to exploration properties in
Nevada's major gold trends and is led by a highly experienced management team.
NGE developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry exploration technology and
has completed the first ever survey of Nevada's groundwater chemistry.
Management believes that the results of NGE's groundwater chemistry program
are significant in that they have demonstrated that Nevada's gold deposits
exhibit recognizable groundwater chemistry. NGE continues to refine and apply
this technology to identify, acquire, further delineate and then drill test
its own highly prospective properties. NGE is also in a unique position to add
value to Joint Venture opportunities.
