Firestone Ventures Reports 4.0 m of 5.22 g/t Gold, Sonora Property, Yukon

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2007) - Firestone Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FV)(FRANKFURT:F5V) is pleased to announce the first set of assay results, from drill holes SG-07-11 and SG-07-12 completed on the Amadeus Zone, within the Company's Sonora gold-silver-copper property, located 110 km northwest of Carmacks, Yukon Territory, Canada. Drill Hole SG-07-12 returned 4.0 metres of 5.22 g/t gold. Significantly, the interval is within a larger intersection measuring 64 metres of 1.0 g/t gold.

The 2007 program consisted of 2112.8 metres of diamond drilling in 12 holes testing three target areas. The Sonora property is located within 25 kilometres of a seasonal access road and within 40 kilometres of Sherwood Copper's Minto copper-gold mine, now in production.

"We are very encouraged by the intercept grading 5.22 g/t gold and the discovery of what appears to be a much larger, lower-grade gold-silver halo. This confirms the mineralized nature of the Amadeus Zone and further establishes Sonora as a substantial system extending across several kilometres of which only a very small area has been tested," says Lori Walton, President of Firestone Ventures Inc. "High tonnage, low grade gold deposits such as Fort Knox in Alaska and Brewery Creek in the Yukon generally contain tens to hundreds of million tonnes grading 0.8 g/t gold to 1.4 g/t gold."

Drill hole location maps are available at www.firestoneventures.com. Analytical results are pending from the remaining ten drill holes.

Hole SG-07-11 (Amadeus Zone) - 204.5 metres depth was collared 130 metres east-northeast of drill hole SG-06-06 at an azimuth of 180 degrees and dip of -55 degrees, to test for eastern continuity of the 2006 discovery intercept of 6.21 g/t gold across 15.3 metres in SG-06-06 (see news release dated Jan. 15, 2007). Three intercepts were encountered, including one near-surface zone grading 0.59 g/t gold and 11.8 g/t silver across 16.0 metres from 11.1 to 27.1 metres of depth. This includes a 2.0 metre sub-intercept grading 1.64 g/t gold with 14.2 g/t silver from 13.0 to 15.0 metres. The hole also returned anomalous zinc (up to 6540 ppm) and lead (up to 1970 ppm). The hole was terminated at 204.5 metres before its target depth of 250 metres was reached, due to poor rock conditions.

Hole SG-07-12, (Amadeus Zone) - 272.8 metres depth was designed to test for up-dip continuity of the 2006 discovery intercept. The hole is located 50 metres south of SG-06-06 and was drilled at 180 degrees and at a dip of -60 degrees. Hole SG-07-12 returned a 64 metre intercept grading 1.00 g/t gold with 6.9 g/t silver from 72.0 to 136.0 metres. This includes several higher-grade sub-intervals, most notably one of 16.0 metres grading 2.10 g/t gold with 10.9 g/t silver from 120.0 to 136.0 metres. This in turn includes a 4.0 metre interval from 120.0 to 124.0 metres grading 5.22 g/t gold with 8.3 g/t silver, with individual sections returning up to 8.25 g/t gold over 2.0 metres. Drill hole SG-07-12 also returned anomalous bismuth (up to 897 ppm), antimony (up to 1290 ppm), lead (up to 2490 ppm lead), copper (up to 1620 ppm) and a silver value of 164 g/t across 2.5 metres at the bottom of the drill hole.

The Sonora gold-silver-copper property is characterized by its multiple styles of gold mineralization, geological setting and intriguing gold-bismuth-tellurium geochemical signature. The Sonora property lies within the "Dawson Range Copper-Gold-Silver District" in west-central Yukon Territory. Placer gold mining has operated periodically on streams draining the Sonora property; angular gold nuggets have been recovered from placer concentrates. The start of production at the Minto Mine, just 40 km from Sonora; the proposed new power line, including a spur to the Minto mine, and the numerous drill programs carried out in the Dawson Range area in 2007, are all positive developments for the district.

All samples were analyzed by 50 gram fire assay and 34 element ICP Analysis by ALS Chemex Laboratories of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Firestone incorporated numerous standard samples having known gold content, as well as blanks, to test for accuracy of analytical results. Firestone also submitted numerous duplicate samples to test for uniformity of grade and for coarse gold effect.
