Construction Begins at Adanac's Ruby Creek Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2007) - Adanac Molybdenum Corporation (TSX:AUA)(PINK SHEETS:AUAYF)(FRANKFURT:A9N) today announced the commencement of construction at the Company's Ruby Creek open-pit mine site near Atlin, B.C.

The work has been authorized by the B.C. Ministry of Forests, which has issued a special use permit authorizing construction of the project access road and associated earthworks.

"This is a very exciting moment for Adanac," said Michael MacLeod, President and CEO. "The years of preparation have paid off, and now we're actually beginning construction of a molybdenum mine."

Ledcor CMI Ltd. ("LEDCOR") of Vancouver will act as general contractor for this phase of construction, and will be engaging local and regional subcontractors. These currently include Golden Hill Ventures Limited of Whitehorse, Yukon; Ruby Gold Ltd. of Atlin and a joint venture between Ketza Construction Corporation of Whitehorse and Taku River Tlingit First Nation, located at Atlin.

Work on the access road will begin immediately, owing to extensive preparations undertaken during October by LEDCOR and its subcontractors at Surprise Lake, B.C. These include an operational 50 person construction camp, equipment laydown area, fuel storage facility and telecommunications setup, all of which are intended to coordinate and support construction activities. Construction will expand in scope and scale as site development accelerates through the winter months. Activities will include excavation of overburden, installation of a 550-person onsite camp and preparation of all construction infrastructure.

As previously announced, the British Columbia government issued an Environmental Assessment Certificate for the Ruby Creek project in September.

Adanac's state-of-the-art concentrator has a capacity for throughput of 20,000 tonnes per day, expected to produce 12-14 million pounds of molybdenum per year during the initial four years of operation.
