Adanac Produces Molybdenum Concentrate/Angle Holes Exceed Grade of Vertical Holes

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 19, 2007) - Adanac Molybdenum Corp. ("Adanac") (TSX VENTURE:AUA)(PINK SHEETS:AUAYF)(FWB:A9N) is pleased to report that G & T Metallurgical Services Ltd. (Kamloops, BC) have completed the program of laboratory and pilot plant testing of more than two tonnes of Ruby Creek drill core rejects. This work, done to confirm the earlier basis established by MinnovEX for the bankable feasibility, has been successful. G & T's data confirm and exceed the results achieved and reported in Adanac's feasibility report (Wardrop 2006). Extensive mineralogical examination of the major process streams show that the molybdenum values are essentially associated with non-sulphide gangue and can be easily recovered via re-grinding and careful cleaning of the primary flotation concentrate. Three stages of cleaning were used in the lock cycle tests. Overall Mo recovery is indicated to be in the range 92 - 93% which is significantly higher than reported previously.

Two composite samples were made. Composite #1 comprised drill core and drill core rejects remaining from the 2004 and 2005 vertical drilling campaigns, while Composite #2 comprised drill core rejects from the 2006 angle hole drilling. Materials from Composite #1 were used to calibrate the pilot plant scale process test program.

(ii) BLEND equals 75% Composite 1 & 25% Composite 2 to approximate the
expected head grade assay (%Mo equals 0.10) in first five years.


The lock cycle results were achieved consistently and are based on a significantly coarser primary grind (P80 equals 300 microns vs. P80 equals 210 microns) and much lower reagent consumption than was the basis for bankable feasibility. This will enable higher thru put at lower unit cost of production when the mill is in operation.

Two kilograms of MoS2 concentrate were produced from pilot plant operations: 1.2 kg of average grade MoS2 is available for evaluation by potential end users. The resulting average grade molybdenite concentrate assays, on un-deoiled basis, are:
