Explor Starts Drilling Program Eastford Lake Gold Project

ROUYN-NORANDA, CANADA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Explor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXS) is pleased to announce that Phase III of a 2,100 metre drill program has been started on the Eastford Lake Gold Property. The property is situated in the Kerrs, Warden, Milligan Townships and the Rayner Lake area, south-west of Lake Abitibi, Ontario in the Timmins-Porcupine mining camp.

The Eastford Lake Property consists of 137 contiguous unpatented mining units for a total of 2,200 hectares contiguous with the SAGE Gold Inc. property. (See SAGE Gold Inc. press release dated November 08, 2005)

Phase II drilling completed in April 2006 confirmed the presence of gold bearing rock and structures typical of world class gold camps. The drilling confirmed mafic and ultramafic volcanics as well as multiple intrusions of quartz-feldspar-porphyry. Two pyretic shear zones were intersected with anomalous gold values. Geophysical surveys have identified six targets along a major fault-like structure running east-northeast through the central part of the property. The major fault that was intersected is coincident with the northern, or "up-ice" cut-off of a large gold and mercury in soil geochemical anomalies.

The drill was mobilized on June 01, 2007 and has started the first hole to test the interpreted bedrock source of the fragile, friable carbonatized quartz porphyry float and fuchsitic altered ultramafic float located within the north-west end of the gold/quartz boulder train previously discovered. Deep drift/overburden cover (up to 90m) made discovery and exploration of the fault like structure difficult.
