Diamond Drilling Re-Commences on Stroud's Santo Domingo Silver Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2007) - Stroud Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SDR) ("Stroud" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the 2007 exploration program is underway at its Santo Domingo Silver Project North of Guadalajara Mexico. The program is designed to determine the extent of the mineralization encountered in previous drill holes and adits. Two of the mineralized vein systems can be traced for more then 700m with depths in excess of 200m. The La Rayas mineralized zone is typically 30-35 metres in width and the Guadalupe Zone has an observed width in excess of 15 metres wide.

Prospecting on the property located three additional mineralized zones in 2006. Previous sampling from the El Cobre System located east of the Los Reyes Zone assayed 447(g/t) silver, 4.00(g/t) gold and 9.0% lead over 0.7 metres and 0.65 metres of 177.50(g/t) silver, 5.00(g/t) gold and 1.1% lead. A number of adits were located on the mineralized structure. La Esperanza System is located east of the El Cobre System and was discovered by a road cut. The El Zapilote System is located west of the Guadalupe System. Sections of the structure contain a well-developed system of adits and raises, which were used to carry out a limited amount of mining. The property has excellent road access and is transected by a high voltage power line and near a major water supply. George Coburn P.Geo. President and CEO of Stroud is the qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 for the project and has verified the data contained in this press release.

Due to the lack of availability of drill rigs in Mexico (caused by high demand from the mining industry), Stroud purchased its own rig to ensure that drilling can be carried out on an ongoing basis.

The drill, a new high performance Model A5 Diamond drill, will give Stroud the versatility and reliability needed for drilling in the challenging conditions encountered on the Santo Domingo Silver /Gold property. Engineered to be compact and light (the drill can be transported by air), the speed and ease with which the A5 can be reconfigured make it easier to spot the drill in locations that would have previously been difficult to access. The specifications of the drill give it the ability to drill in excess of 6,000 feet using N diameter core (2-3/4) and 4,500 feet of H Diameter core (3-1/2) (the core sizes most commonly used by the Company). A complete description of the drill rig can be found on the Company's website.

The drill has the capability to drill from 90 degrees to just 3 degrees shy of horizontal. This means that Stroud will have better coverage capability when drilling on the steep slopes of the Santo Domingo Project and will have more options to choose from when drilling for harder to reach mineralized targets.

John Cantin (a consultant working with Stroud) is a driller with more than 45 years of experience in fabricating drills, drilling, crew supervision, and operating in foreign countries. John supervised the construction of the drill rig and tested the rig before shipment to the Santo Domingo Project. Mr. Cantin is also responsible for outfitting the drill with drill rods, casing etc. as well as the hiring and managing of the drill crews.

Stroud is a debt-free exploration company focused on the discovery and exploration of silver and gold deposits in Mexico and Ontario. Stroud owns a 100% interest in the Santo Domingo epithermal silver-gold project in central Mexico. In addition to the Santo Domingo project, Stroud's assets include 100% interests in the Hislop gold property, near Timmins, Ontario and the Leckie gold property, near North Bay, Ontario. Stroud recently acquired an option on the Santa Cruz Silver Gold property in Mexico (view June 14, 2007 press release for details). Stroud also generates cash flow from a 3.75% interest in six natural gas and natural gas condensate wells in central Alberta. Stroud's corporate goal is to create a mineral based company with projects that are characterized as world-class in status and with the potential for near-term production.
