VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2007) - Brilliant Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BMC) ("Brilliant" or the "Company") today reported that the first month of deliveries from the high-grade Winner ore body totaled 4,670 tonnes of ore grading 5.37% Ni. In October, the Winner ore body contributed 40% of the total ore delivered, setting a new record for Ni metal delivered in one month from the 25% owned Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, located in the world class Kambalda Nickel District of Western Australia.

Key Point Summary:

- Winner ore deliveries total 4,670 tonnes of ore grading 5.37% Ni for 251 tonnes of Ni metal

- Winner represents 40% of Ni metal deliveries from 21% of ore deliveries

- Winner was a major contributor to a record one-month Ni metal ore deliveries from the Lanfranchi Mine for October which totaled 22,680 tonnes of ore grading 2.75% Ni for 623 tonnes of Ni metal

- Winner ore production commenced October 14, 2007

"The significant contribution from the high-grade Winner orebody in its first production month provides an indication of the potential that can be achieved through ramp up," states John Williamson, CEO of Brilliant Mining. "In addition to bringing Winner on-stream, the Deacon orebody is scheduled to be in production early next year and is projected to provide an even greater impact."

October Production

The Lanfranchi JV delivered 22,680 tonnes of ore with an average grade of 2.75% Ni for 623 tonnes of Ni metal for the month of October 2007. Ore production from the high-grade Winner orebody commenced on October 14, 2007 contributing 4,670 tonnes of ore grading 5.37% Ni for 251 tonnes of contained Ni metal.

Winner Orebody

The Winner orebody contains a Probable Mineral Reserve of 144,003 tonnes of ore grading 4.26% Ni metal and an Indicated Resource of 111,680 tonnes grading 6.16% Ni. Ore sourced from Winner will be a key component for future growth with a targeted level of approximately 8,000-10,000 tonnes of ore per month when full level production is attained.

The Winner orebody is located approximately 1 kilometre east of the main Lanfranchi workings with access provided by an independent portal and decline. The upper mine level at Winner is situated 155m below surface and has an elongated cigar shape with a plunge of 30-40 degrees which is typically 10-20m thick in the east/west plane and 30-60m thick in the north/south plane. The mineralization is predominantly massive sulphides on the basalt/ultramafic contact with minor disseminated sulphides hosted in the ultramafic.

Key Production Catalysts

The main factors that will contribute to the significant ramp-up in production are:

- Ore from the now producing high-grade Winner orebody; and

- Ore from Deacon orebody with a Probable Reserve estimated at 1,695,433 tonnes at 2.54% Ni for 43,009 tonnes of Ni metal and scheduled for first development ore production November 2007 and first longhole stope ore production March 2008 (See Company press release dated August 7, 2007 and 43-101 technical report filed on SEDAR for details)

Brilliant Mining Corp. owns a 25% interest in the Lanfranchi Joint Venture ("Lanfranchi JV"), which owns the Lanfranchi Nickel Mine together with associated infrastructure, mining leases and mineral claims. The remaining 75% interest in the Lanfranchi JV is held by Sally Malay Mining Limited.

The project is supervised by John Williamson, P.Geol., of Edmonton, Alberta. Mr. Williamson is CEO and a Director of Brilliant, and is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
