Apella Resources Inc.: Diamond Drilling Commences Iron-T Iron-Vanadium-Titanium Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2009) - Apella Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:APA)(FRANKFURT:NWN), and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce that Apella has now commenced its 10-hole diamond drill program on its 100% owned Iron-T Iron-Vanadium-Titanium project. This is the first set of holes that Apella has drilled on the Iron-T project. Geophysical targets had been identified from previous geophysics. Line cutting has now been completed for this phase and detailed mapping will be carried out simultaneously with the drilling.

Apella is currently considering expanding the drill program and will advise on that decision in the coming days.

The Iron-T Project is located near Matagami, Quebec, approximately 250 km west of Chibougamau, the location of Apella's Lac Dore and Lac Dore North Iron-Vanadium-Titanium Projects. The Iron-T Project is Apella's largest Iron-Vanadium-Titanium project and will be the focus of most of Apella's diamond drilling and exploration endeavours over the coming months.

In other business Christian Derosier has had to resign as Apella's V.P. Exploration for personal issues. The company would like to thank Christian for all of the quality dedication and commitment he has provided in building Apella's significant portfolio of Iron-Vanadium-Titanium projects for its shareholders.
