Abcourt Mines Inc.: 2,500-Meter Drilling Program Started at Jonpol Property

MONT-ST-HILAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - Mr. Renaud Hinse, president and C.O.O. of Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ABI), is pleased to announce that a contract has been awarded for a minimum of 2,500 meters of diamond drilling on the Jonpol property, near Amos, Quebec.

As indicated in our Press Release dated March 29 last, the Jonpol property covers a distance of 4,700 meters (2.9 miles) along the most favourable felsic volcanic formation for base metals in the Amos area and has been the site of repeated exploration efforts for almost 100 years including numerous drill holes and three shafts, the deepest reaching a depth of 152 meters (500 feet). So far, four mineralized zones have been found. They are the "Main West Copper Zone", the "Jay Copper Zone", the "Lower Ag-Zn-Cu Zone" and the "Upper Ag-Zn Zone" . The four zones all appear to be made of disseminated to stringer to locally semi-massive pyrite more or less sphalerite more or less chalcopyrite and silver minerals that collectively represent a large stringer (feeder) sulphide zone.

The historical resources on the Jonpol property are as follows:

Zone Date Author Short tons % Cu % Zn oz/t Ag
Upper Ag-Zn 1969 Waisberg(1) 20,000 - 4.0 8.0
Jay Copper 1969 Waisberg 26,000 3.5 - 1.0
Main West Cu 1974 Kilborn(2) 1,946,000 1.04 - 0.02
Lower Ag-Zn-Cu 1983 Getty(3) 815,000 1.25 3.21 3.55

In addition, several significant gold intersections have been obtained in the drilling.

This information comes from a report by C.M Cooke, senior project geologist for Aur Resources Inc., dated November 1992.

The historical resources reported above were prepared before the introduction of National Instrument 43-101 ("43-101"). No additional information is available at this time and the historical resources have not been verified and should not be relied upon. However Abcourt believes that these estimates, particularly the ones prepared by Kilborn and Getty, were estimated by competent persons. This statement is made by Mr. Renaud Hinse, professional engineer, President of the Company. Mr. Hinse is a qualified person under 43-101.

The current drilling program is planned to further outline the mineralized zones and to look for extentions.

Abcourt Mines Inc. is an exploration and development company with strategically located properties in Northwestern Quebec, Canada. The Abcourt-Barvue project with 43-101 silver-zinc ore reserves and resources and the Elder mine with 43-101 gold resources are both past producers. Abcourt is now focused on bringing these two projects back in production and at the same time, it is working on other projects (Aldermac, Jonpol and Vendome), to increase its mineral resources inventory. A positive 43-101 feasibility study was recently completed on the Abcourt-Barvue project. For additional information, see our Press Release dated February 16, 2007.
