Advanced Explorations Inc. Project Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 30, 2008) - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company or AEI") is pleased to announce that work is progressing on its economic study and diamond drill program on the Roche Bay iron ore project. MAN Ferrostaal of Germany is leading the Team undertaking the economic and technical review. After several meetings the Team has concluded that the study will focus on determining the viability of a mine operation supporting 7 million tonnes of pellet production per year. The objective is to complete the updated resource calculation and Preliminary Economic Assessment this summer with delivery of the final Pre-Feasibility study by the fall of this year.

The Company initiated this year's drill campaign with two drills and is in the process of expanding to four drills. To improve assay turnaround time SGS Lakefield is operating a sample preparation laboratory located in Hall Beach, 60 km north of the project. Approximately 2000 metres of drilling has been completed and the first assay information is expected in the near future. Golder Associates is currently working on the resource calculation that is to be used as part of the aforementioned economic and technical studies.

John Gingerich, President and CEO of AEI, commented;

"The Company is pleased with the contributions of the pre-feasibility team in helping to assess the potential development options. We have been very encouraged by the results to date and look forward to having the reports completed and being able to release to the public. I continue to be impressed with the strength of our team and the progress we have made in only one year's timeframe."

The company is also pleased to announce that Steve Roebuck has joined the company as Vice President Exploration. With over 15 years of mining and exploration experience, Steve's extensive knowledge in the field will add a significant value to AEI's team of qualified specialists. As a past production engineer and production geologist at BHP Billiton's EKATI Diamond Mine, Steve spent numerous years in the arctic and was involved in large drill campaigns providing him with true hands on experience in the design and implementation of exploration and delineation drill programs.

Recently, Steve held positions at resource and mining companies such as VP, Development at Scorpio Gold Corporation and VP, Exploration at Forest Gate Resources. Being a trained Six Sigma Black Belt Coach, Steve developed superior management skills which will benefit him in leading the team of consulting engineers, geologists and contractors involved in the Roche Bay Magnetite Project.
