Commander and Donner Commence EM Survey on the Sarah Lake Nickel Property

Commander Retains BMK Communications for Investor Relations

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2007) - Commander Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMD) reports that a detailed low frequency ground Electromagnetic (EM) survey has commenced on the Sarah Lake Property, Labrador. Commander also reports that it has retained BMK Communications Inc. of Vancouver, B.C., to provide investor relations and marketing services.

The Sarah Lake property is a Joint Venture between Commander and Donner Metals and is located about 90 kilometres south of the 150 Mt Voisey's Bay Nickel Mine. The property covers a portion of the extensive Pants Lake Gabbro Complex, which is similar in age and chemical composition to the intrusions that host Voisey's Bay.

On the Sarah Lake Property, as reported in the Company's news release dated September 13, 2007, previous drilling to the west of the property in the 1990's intersected 0.5% nickel to 11.9% nickel with several intercepts on the Sarah Lake Property grading 0.4 to 0.9% nickel. A large area of the key basal contact of the gabbro lies within a few hundred metres of the surface and has not been sufficiently explored for nickel-bearing massive sulphide accumulation.

Discrete geophyscical conductors on the property were identified from previous surveys to be at a depth coincident with the interpreted base of the gabbro where sulphides could have accumulated. High grade nickel sulphide deposits are usually highly conductive bodies and therefore, a detailed low frequency EM survey is required to isolate and define the strongest and potentially the most metal rich portions of the known conductors. This new geophysical data along with existing geological, geochemical and geophysical data will be used to prioritize targets for drill testing in 2008.

Commander owns 48.2% of the Sarah Lake Property. Donner Metals owns 51.8% and is operator of the Joint Venture.

Commander also holds other interests in the larger South Voisey's Bay area including 59.9% of the Adlatok 1 Property and 100% of Sally and Sadie properties on which there are existing geophysical conductors. These other properties will be surveyed with a similar EM system in 2008 and will be drill-tested if warranted.

Summary information and maps of the properties can be found on the Company's website at www.commanderresources.com.
