    OSLO, Norway, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - Wega Mining ASA has decided not to proceed
with the proposed second tranche of the investment of C$8,000,000 in common
share purchase units in Tagish Lake Gold Corp (TSX-V: TLG), as described in
the Company's news release of June 26, 2007.

with the legal and financial aspects of the Company or mineral resource
estimates of the project.

significant value creation potential for our shareholders," said Lars Marius
Furu, CEO of Wega Mining ASA.
