Brilliant Mining Corp.: High Grade Massive Ni Sulphide Intersected on Overturned Northern Limb Tramways Dome

Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, Kambalda District of Western Australia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 29, 2007) - Brilliant Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BMC) ("Brilliant" or the "Company") today announced that drilling has intersected high grade massive nickel sulphide on the overturned northern flank of the Tramways Dome. Eight surface drill holes have now been completed along the Northern Tramways Dome area at the Tramways Tenements, host to the producing Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, located in the world class Kambalda Nickel District of Western Australia. All eight holes appear to have intersected overturned Kambalda Komatiite (ultramafic) sequences below Lunnon (footwall) Basalts, supporting the Overturned Dome model structure at the property. Drill hole TD8036 intersected 0.88m grading 7.76% Ni within the overturned ultramafic sequence approximately 20 metres below the overturned contact horizon.

Key Point Summary:

- Exploration north of the Lanfranchi Mine supports "Tramways Overturned Dome Model" - ultramafic Komatiite intersected below the basalt sequence in all eight recent drill holes

- 7.76% Ni over 0.88m (high-grade Ni massive sulphide) intersected within the overturned ultramafic sequence approximately 20 metres below the overturned contact horizon

- Geochemistry indicates Channel Facies ultramafic rocks; a similar setting as host for the main Tramways' orebodies

- Drilling and down-hole EM surveying is ongoing

"The discovery of high grade massive nickel sulphide and signature ultramafic channel facies geochemistry north of the existing mine workings is an extremely positive advancement for the Tramways Overturned Dome model" states John Williamson CEO of Brilliant Mining "and has significant ramifications for the future potential of the property."

The drilling program currently underway is designed to test, by a combination of drilling on 100 metre spaced sections and down-hole Electro Magnetic "EM" surveys, a 1.5 kilometre wide section (389900mE to 391400mE) across the overturned Tramways Dome area. Site geologists believe this region of the Tramways Dome is most likely to contain the overturned continuation of the Helmut/Deacon and Schmitz/Winner channel structures (See Figures 1 and 3) which have provided the majority of nickel production for the Lanfranchi Project in the past.

To date, two drill holes have intersected encouraging evidence of mineralization on the northern side of the Tramways Dome.

- 7.76% Ni over 0.88m was intersected between 252.3-253.18 metres down hole in drill hole TD8036 (section 390500mE) approximately 20 metres below the overturned contact (See Figures 2 and 4); and

- 3.41% Ni over 1.0 metre was intersected between 79-80 metres down hole in drill hole TD8030 (section 391000mE) on the normal facing contact (previously released July 10, 2007)

While the mineralization in TD8030 was intersected on the normal facing basalt ultramafic contact the mineralization in TD8036 was intersected within the overturned ultramafic sequence approximately 20 metres from the contact position. Geochemical analysis of holes TD8030, TD8031 and TD8036 has returned favourable high MgO (30-40%), low Ti and Al signatures which are indicative of channel facies ultramafics. The geochemical signature observed is similar to the setting reported within the main Tramways channel structures that are host to the Helmut/Deacon and Schmitz/Winner orebodies.

At this stage, the massive sulphide zone appears to be due to structural re-mobilization processes. Such occurrences are not uncommon in Komatiite complexes in and around Kambalda. The source of the Ni sulphide is commonly considered and potentially due to the presence of a nearby larger body of mineralisation. Such instances are observed at Tramways with the re-mobilized 4420 massive sulphide zone in close proximity to the Helmut - Helmut South orebodies and the Skinner massive sulphide structure in relation to the Schmitz orebody.

Multi-element analysis of the remaining holes is yet to be returned from the laboratory. Figure 3 is a plan view of the recent drill hole locations relative to the overturned ultramafic contact projected to surface.
