Cream Minerals Adds to Nickel Properties in Manitoba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 1, 2007) - Cream Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMA)(OTCBB:CRMXF)(FRANKFURT:DFL) ("Cream" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it has entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") with W. S. Ferreira Ltd. (the "Optionor") to acquire 100% interest in and to the Grand Nickel Project, being the Cedar 1, MB7355 and MEL 324B (collectively, the "Property"), located in the Thompson Nickel Belt, approximately 40 kilometres north-west of the town of Grand Rapids, Manitoba. The Property is located 90 kilometers south west of the Minago Nickel deposit of Victory Nickel Inc.

As reported by W.S. Ferreira Ltd., the Property contains an electromagnetic conductor within a large magnetic anomaly. A diamond drill hole (GR-2-83) drilled by Granges Exploration Ltd. in 1983 intersected over 600 feet of ultramafic rocks with significant intersections including: 0.48% Nickel over a core length of 8 feet and 0.45% Nickel over a core length of 10 feet. True width of the intersections is not presently known. Cream is planning an airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey using State of the Art Technology followed by diamond drilling in the New Year. The Property covers 20 square miles in size.

Cream can earn its interest in and to the Property by making payments to the Option totaling $100,000 and issuing 200,000 common shares over a 48-month period from the date of regulatory approval. Cream must also incur exploration expenditures on the Property totaling $5,000 within one year following the date of regulatory approval, $10,000 cumulative prior to the second anniversary of regulatory approval, $15,000 cumulative prior to the third anniversary of regulatory approval, and $20,000 cumulative prior to the fourth anniversary of regulatory approval. During the first year of the Agreement, Cream will pay $5,000 and issue 50,000 common shares to the Optionor upon receipt of regulatory approval and $10,000 and an additional 50,000 common shares 12 months following the date of regulatory approval.

Upon fulfilling the obligations set out above, Cream will have earned a 100% right, title and interest in and to the Property subject only to a 2.0% Net Smelter Return royalty ("NSR") payable to the Optionor from the production of gold, silver and all base metals and other minerals from the Property. Cream shall have the right to reduce the NSR to 1.0% by the payment of $1,000,000 to the Optionor at any time up to and including the commencement of commercial production.

All shares issued in relation to the Agreement will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of each issuance.
