Brilliant Mining Corp.: Strong Conductor Down-Plunge of Deacon-Surface Drill Program Planned Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, Kambalda District of Western Australia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 1, 2007) - Brilliant Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BMC) ("Brilliant" or the "Company") today provided an update on the platform EM drilling and drill plans down-plunge of Deacon orebody at the Tramways Tenements host to the operating Lanfranchi Nickel Mine in the Kambalda District of Western Australia.

Key Point Summary:

- Strong geophysical conductor interpreted 50 metres down-plunge of Inferred Resource limit at Deacon

- Surface drill program planned down-plunge of Deacon

"The strong geophysical response observed down-plunge of the Deacon orebody provides a high degree of confidence that the mineralization continues below existing drilling and demonstrates the potential to add significant mine life to the operation," states John Williamson, CEO of Brilliant Mining.

Down-Plunge Platform EM Drilling

Platform EM drilling and corresponding geophysical surveys were completed during the last quarter to determine the down-plunge continuation of Deacon from a drill station located at the base of Helmut South.

Hole HS313 was drilled down-plunge of Helmut South along the east side of the projected Deacon Channel resulting in a strong off-hole conductor centred approximately 310 metres down-hole. The conductor was interpreted to be orientated parallel, located above and towards the west of the drill hole (to see Figure 1 please click on: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/bmc1101figure1.jpg).

Hole HS312 intersected Deacon mineralization between 90 metres and 204 metres and between 270 metres to 280 metres and was surveyed by down-hole geophysics (DHEM) only below 260 metres. Modelling of the geophysical response identified a large conductor oriented sub-parallel and situated above the drill hole trace.

Both conductors are highly conductive and interpreted to represent a continuation of the Deacon Ni sulphide channel thereby extending the mineralization 150 metres beyond the current Probable Reserve limits and 50 metres beyond the Inferred Resource boundary (to see Figure 1 please click on: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/bmc1101figure1.jpg).

Contact parallel EM holes are exploratory tools utilized in an underground mine environment to detect the down-plunge continuation of known mineralization well beyond the existing production levels. The aim is for the drill trace to remain in the footwall rock unit and maintain a parallel orientation in proximity to the contact horizon that hosts the mineralization so as to be able to detect the nickel sulphide conductor through a geophysical survey.

Deacon Planned Down-Plunge Surface Drilling

The current Deacon Probable Ore Reserve extends to 513,664mN and down plunge of this Northing. The Indicated and Inferred Resources extend a further 100 metres to 513,555mN. In order to expedite the conversion of resources to reserves, the current plan adopted by the Lanfranchi JV is to drill the down-plunge extensions to Deacon from surface using directional diamond drilling and wedging. This program will involve drilling a single parent diamond hole into the deposit and then using a standard casing wedge to drill any number of daughter diamond holes off the parent hole (to see Figure 1 please click on: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/bmc1101figure1.jpg). Currently 6 wedge holes are planned. The program is expected to commence in the first half of 2008.

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 owned by Sally Malay Mining Limited.

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