Eloro Updates Delta Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) - ELORO RESOURCES LTD. ("Eloro" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:ELO), would like to announce that a 3,500 metre diamond drilling program has commenced on its wholly-owned Delta Property located in the James Bay region in Northern Quebec.

As part of a regional geophysical program conducted this past summer, the Company commissioned a detailed ground Infinitem™ survey (a deep penetrating electromagnetic survey) on the Delta Property. The 36 line kilometre Infinitem™ survey was carried out as a follow-up to the airborne MAG/EM survey which was flown over the property during the fall of 2006.

The Infinitem™ survey outlined nine conductive anomalies which can be categorized as strong conductors, most likely resulting from metallic sources such as massive sulphides. In their interpretation of the survey, Abitibi Geophysics of Val-d'Or, Quebec concluded that follow up drilling is highly recommended on each of the detected anomalies.

The conductive anomalies fall within a 1.4 kilometre long Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) sequence, complete with chert-magnetite-sulphide iron formation, altered volcanic agglomerates, cherts, disseminated and semi-massive chalcopyrite-pyrite stringers and veins, along with disseminated magnetite-pyrite-chalcopyrite.

On October 24, 2006, the Company announced the results obtained from an extensive field prospecting, mapping and sampling program on the VMS sequence which yielded significant grab sample results including:

The 3,500 metre drilling program on the Delta Property has been designed to further investigate the extent of the copper-silver mineralization associated with the Infinitem™ survey's electromagnetic conductors at depth.

Eastmain 1 Property

The 2006 airborne survey conducted over the Delta Property also covered the southern portion of the Company's wholly-owned Eastmain 1 Property which is located adjacent to and immediately north of the Delta Property.

The survey outlined several conductive zones in an area which has never been explored. As a result, Eloro recently completed 120 kilometres of line cutting in preparation for a ground geophysical survey (Maxmin EM survey) which will further explore the conductive zones outlined by the 2006 airborne survey. The ground geophysical survey is scheduled to begin next week and will be carried out concurrently with the Delta Property diamond drilling program. Targets generated by the Maxmin EM survey will be drill tested during a winter drilling program.

Stock Option Grant

The Company also announces that it has reserved a price of $0.45 per share for the grant of stock options to an officer and a consultant to acquire up to 300,000 common shares of the Company (the "Stock Options"). Each Stock Option entitles the holder thereof to acquire one (1) common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.45 per common share prior to the close of business on October 10, 2012.
