Birim Reports Independent NI43-101 Compliant Resource Estimate for Tinga Far East Gold Deposit, Ghana

Report Determines Increase in Resource Estimate

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2007) - Birim Goldfields Inc. (TSX:BGI) ("Birim" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimation for the Far East gold deposit, located on Birim's wholly owned Tinga Property in Ghana, West Africa. Combined Indicated and Inferred resources of 2,057,000 tonnes at 3.51g/t for of 232,000 ounces gold have now been defined at the Far East deposit.

Drilling by Birim at the Far East deposit validated previous drilling carried out by previous owner, Semafo and also tested the Far East structure along strike and down dip for further extensions of the known mineralization. This drilling was then consolidated with Semafo's historic drill data. RSG Global of Perth, Australia was commissioned to provide an independent resource estimate for the Far East depositin accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101, Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects of February 2001 and the classifications adopted by CIM Council in December 2005. RSG Global considers the resource estimate to be robust. A full copy of the RSG Global report can be accessed on SEDAR or at www.birim.com.

"We are pleased to have increased the existing resource estimate up at Tinga by 62.2%' says Vic King, President and CEO of Birim Goldfields Inc. This is a significant step for Birim as these are the first NI43-101 compliant resources defined on the Bui Belt. We are confident of the potential to increase these resources along strike and down dip at Far East and we are encouraged by the potential of parallel mineralized structures within 2 kilometers of the current resource. We will also be pursuing further target definition and commence resource definition drilling at our Chert Ridge and Tombe prospects which are located on our properties further to the south on the Bui Belt."

The resource model is based on drilling undertaken over a strike extent of 2,000 meters down to an average depth of 100 meters and to a maximum depth of 190 meters below surface. The mineralized structure is continuous and coherent over 900 meters in the core of the Main Zone area The continuity is less defined outside of the core area but the structure has been identified over the full 2,000 meters of strike drilled so far.

Another zone was intersected by Birim in the footwall of the Main Zone where RTC051 returned 7 meters at 2.07 g/t from 11 meters downhole depth (including 4 meters at 3.47 g/t). This new zone has not been included in the current resource estimation. Future drilling will be aimed to test the continuity of this new footwall zone.

The style of mineralization encountered at the Far East deposit is associated with shear zone-hosted, mesothermal, auriferous pyrite and intense silicification, typical of many gold deposits encountered in the Birimian rocks of West Africa. In Ghana, aspects of the Chirano, Ayanfuri and Ahafo gold mines have geological similarities with the Far East deposit. The Far East deposit is located where a regional structural shear crosscuts the compositional layering within a concentrically-zoned belt granitoid.

As the deposit remains open on strike and depth, follow-up work will concentrate on extensions and will be guided by ground I.P. geophysical data, comprising the following phases of activity:

a. Strike extension drilling of 4 x 200-meter spaced drill fences at each end of the Far East deposit for a total of 10 holes or 1,100 RC drill meters.

b. Resource definition drilling on 50 meter centres of the untested footwall zone for a total of 3 holes or 200 RC meters.

c. Geochemical target definition over targets peripheral to the Far East deposit. This will be achieved by 1,500 meters of RAB drilling in areas where ferricrete cover limits detailed soil pitting.

d. Recently completed soil surveys are expected to refine the geochemical definition of the B and C Prospects which are 1.6 and 2.5 kilometers west of the Far East deposit respectively. These targets will be addressed using RC and core drilling subject when appropriate.
