TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 31, 2007) -

(Not for dissemination in the United States of America)

Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ELO) (the "Company" or "Eloro") announced today that a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 625,000 Flow-Through Units (the "Units") to be issued on a "flow-through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of 80 cents per Unit, for gross proceeds to the Company of $500,000 has been arranged with MineralFields Group. This represents the fourth financing that Eloro is completing with the MineralFields Group, having already completed three "flow-through" private placements at the price levels ranging from $0.17 to $0.65 for aggregate proceeds to Eloro totaling $2,250,000 since December 2005.

Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share (the "Common Shares") to be issued on a "flow-through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one non-transferable share purchase warrant of the Company (the "Unit Warrants"). Each Unit Warrant will have a term of 24 months (the "Term") and will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $1.25 per share in the first year of the Term and $2.00 in the second year of the Term. Pursuant to the Private Placement, if the average closing price of the Common Shares is over $1.45 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days (following the expiry of the hold period) in the first year of the Term, or $2.20 in the second year of the Term, the Unit Warrants must be exercised within ten business days of receiving written notice from Eloro or they are to be terminated.

All securities to be issued pursuant to this Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period. Subject to regulatory approval, the Company will pay a finder's fee equal to 5% of the completed Private Placement, and further, the Company will issue finder's fee share purchase warrants, equal to 10% of the number of Units subscribed for to an arm's length party.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to finance continued exploration programs at Eloro's exploration projects located in the James Bay District of northern Quebec, and the Company's Hurdman Zinc Silver Gold Property, located in northeastern Ontario. The Private Placement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
