Nevada Exploration Inc. ("NGE") commences drilling at Fletcher Junction, acquires additional land and announces its Annual Shareholders Meeting.

    MONTREAL, Nov. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Nevada Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: NGE)
("NGE") is pleased to announce that reverse circulation drilling operations
started today at Fletcher Junction. Fletcher Junction is the property of merit
described in NGE filing statement dated February 16, 2007 produced as per
National Instrument 43-101 and available on
    Twenty drill sites have been permitted with the US Forest Service. Up to
twenty, angle to vertical drill holes using a track-mounted reverse
circulation drill are planned to maximum depths of 1,000 feet. The holes are
located within an area of approximately 9,000 feet by 3,000 feet believed to
source highly anomalous gold in groundwater flowing from beneath a 50- to     
150-foot-thick cover of post-mineral basalt. Operations have been planned not
to be hampered by winter weather conditions so that the holes, averaging
600 feet deep, shall progress at the speed of 250 feet/day provided that
difficult drilling conditions, mechanical problems and/or analytical delays
are not encountered.

    Land Acquisition and Exploration Update

    NGE currently controls mineral rights on nine properties through 1,479
unpatented mining claims staked on 41 sq-mi of BLM land and 3.5 sq-mi of
leased private land. Staking of another 216 unpatented mining claims on
another 6 sq-mi of BLM land is in progress and when complete will add another
exploration property. NGE will then control more than 50 sq-mi of land in
Nevada evidencing highly anomalous concentrations of gold in ground water.
Land acquisition is expected to continue on new exploration properties as
identified by ongoing reconnaissance ground water sampling and on areas
adjacent to some already acquired exploration properties.
    Wade Hodges, Chief Executive Officer of NGE, stated that "NGE believes
that the key to creating sustainable shareholder value lies in building a
pipeline of exploration properties that all evidence highly anomalous gold in
ground water chemistry, to then use more conventional exploration
methodologies as appropriate and to then drill them to effect discovery.
Securing a drill rig to begin drill testing of each property has proven to be
extremely difficult due to an industry-wide shortage of drillers and drilling
equipment. However, with the start of drilling, NGE has passed another
milestone toward turning good intentions into sustainable reality".

    Annual Report and Shareholders Meeting

    NGE is also pleased to announce that it will hold a general and special
meeting of its shareholders to take place on November 30, 2007, 11:00 A.M. at
the TSX Broadcast Center of the TSX Exchange Tower in Toronto.

    About NGE

    NGE is an exploration company focused, through its wholly-owned Nevada
incorporated subsidiary Pediment Gold LLC, on gold exploration in Nevada. NGE
is led by a highly experienced and historically successful exploration
management team. NGE has developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry
exploration technology and is the first to complete a comprehensive and
consistently applied survey of Nevada's groundwater chemistry specifically
directed toward the discovery of new gold deposits. Management believes that
the results of NGE's groundwater chemistry program are significant in that
they are demonstrating that Nevada's known gold deposits exhibit recognizable
groundwater chemistry signatures. NGE has identified and acquired several
exploration properties with similar groundwater chemistry and is in the final
stages of testing whether such water chemical signatures can be followed "up
stream" to discover new gold deposits in much less time and for much less
money than the conventional exploration approaches currently used by other
exploration groups. NGE continues to refine and apply this technology to
identify, acquire, further delineate and then drill test its own highly
prospective exploration properties to return the maximum value of making a new
gold discovery to shareholders. NGE is also in a unique position to add value
to the Joint Venture opportunities presented by more conventional exploration
