and Analysis, both of which are available on www.sedar.com.


    Construction of the Gollier Creek processing plant is 95% complete, and
is on schedule and on budget for year-end completion. Commissioning will begin
in January 2008. Senior managers for the plant and mine have been hired and
recruitment and training of operating personnel is underway. The Company
expects to commence shipments of Whitemud(MK) cement-grade metakaolin to
customers in the first quarter of 2008.


    Overburden removal in the Gollier Creek West Pit began in September 2007
and 150,000 cubic meters have been removed to date. Initial mining operations
have commenced and ore is being stockpiled at the plant in preparation for
plant start-up in early 2008. Ongoing mine operations will be outsourced to an
experienced mining contractor and the Company has requested contract tenders
from qualified contractors.


    The Company is completing sales agreements with key customers and
preparing a detailed product launch plan to ensure successful introduction of
Whitemud(MK). Whitemud's growth towards commercial production has attracted
potential opportunities for metakaolin sales beyond the core markets of
concrete construction and oil and gas well cementing, and for sales of silica
sand co-products.


    Construction of a rail transload center at Scout Lake, 22 km east of the
Gollier Creek Mine, is scheduled for late January 2008 completion. Rail cars
have been secured for service beginning in late January. Agreements for truck
delivery to Western Canadian customers are being finalized.


    Most of the analytical results from the company's summer 2007 exploration
drilling program have been received. The company expects to complete
assessment of the resource potential of each targeted area by year-end.

    Whitemud Resources Inc. is a Canadian-based corporation which is
currently developing the Gollier Creek Mine to exploit a large kaolin deposit
in southern Saskatchewan. Whitemud plans to produce Whitemud(MK), a
high-reactivity cement-grade metakaolin that enhances the performance of
cement in construction and oil and gas wells. The first phase of construction
and mine development is nearly complete. The Company plans to ship
Whitemud(MK) to markets across North America beginning in the first quarter of
2008. More information is available on the Company's website at
