Explor Increases East Bay Gold Property

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2007) - Explor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXS) is pleased to announce the acquisition six (6) Mineral Claims (204.76 hectares) situated in Duparquet Township in the Rouyn-Noranda mining district, province of Quebec and contiguous with the previously acquired claims.


Explor Resources inc., will issue pay $3,000 at the signature and will issue 90,000 common shares to acquire a 100% interest in the claims of the East Bay Property. The Optionees have retained a 2.0% NSR in the property.


The East Bay Property is located in the western central part of Duparquet Township approximately 1.0 km west of the town of Duparquet, Quebec. Excellent access is provided by a paved road that connects the highway 101 from Matheson Ontario, to Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec to the property approximately 2.0 km off the highway. The most obvious topographical feature in the area is Beattie Island in Lac Duparquet. The property size has now increased to 1008.96 hectares. Explor now has 3 km of property along the Porcupine-Destor fault in the Duparquet mining camp. The property is contiguous with the former Beattie/Donchester Mine.


The mineralization on the East Bay Property is interpreted to be similar to that exposed on Beattie Island within Lac Duparquet and is hosted within the Destor Theolitic Unit of the Blake River Group. Mineralization is associated with interflow volcanic sediments between andesite flows and dioritic sills. The alteration consists of silicification, carbonization and considerable sulphide enrichment.

This property is located approximately 0.5 km directly to the west of the former Consolidated Beattie and Donchester gold Mines which produced over 1.0 million oz of gold between 1933-1956. The mineralization appears to be located in a splay off the Porcupine Destor Fault Zone.

Explor plans on conducting a two phase exploration program. Phase I is designed to better determine the location of the structural targets via magnetic and VLF geophysics. Phase II will consist of diamond drilling the identified target or targets.
