Donner Metals Ltd.: Engineering Contract Awarded; Feasibility Fast-Tracked

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2009) - Mr. Harvey Keats, Chief Executive Officer of Donner Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DON)(FRANKFURT:D4M), reports that the feasibility study is advancing rapidly at Bracemac-McLeod in Matagami, Quebec. Bracemac-McLeod is subject to an Option and Joint Venture agreement between Donner and Xstrata Canada Corporation - Xstrata Zinc Canada Division (Xstrata Zinc). Definition drilling at 25 metre centers is underway, the engineering firm has been selected, and in-house engineering studies continue within Xstrata Zinc. In order to accelerate the decision-making process, Xstrata Zinc has decided to forgo pre-feasibility and go straight to feasibility from the scoping study stage. Bracemac-McLeod will essentially only require mine development as a result of the existing infrastructure in the camp, including Xstrata Zinc's 2,600 tonne per day Matagami Mill Complex.

The feasibility study is scheduled for completion in June 2010, and given a positive outcome, mine construction using ramp access will begin in July 2010.

Additional information on Bracemac-McLeod and the Matagami Project is available online at www.donnermetals.com.
