                         FUNDY IDENTIFIES EIGHT NEW POTENTIAL GOLD TARGETS AT SAND BROOK
                                                       
The  Board of Fundy Minerals Ltd ("Fundy" or "the Company"), the Canadian and West African exploration company,
is  pleased  to report that the Company has completed an extensive geophysical survey at its  100%  owned  Sand
Brook gold project, identifying eight new potential Gold targets.

The  Company's  June 2009 ground mag/vlf survey has yielded four strong magnetic highs, and  three  medium  mag
highs  on the western grid at the   Sand Brook property. The vlf results on the western grid indicates a north-
south trending conductive area, and is interpreted as a probable gold mineralized zone.

The  central  grid  also   showed one  strong magnetic high.  An eastern grid at Sand Brook  yielded  a  strong
vertical  gradient  (VG4 ) and several anomalous magnetic highs and an east-west trending vlf  conductive  zone
which, is consistent with the known direction of the gold hosted shear zone.

The  Company  engaged  Vickers Geophysics Inc.  to review and undertake a compilation  from  a  prior  airborne
survey,  known  as the 1st Derivative Aeromagnetics Survey. This survey   identified magnetic  anomalous  areas
over  the  two Sand Brook gold zones which, the Company has been actively exploring. The survey also  indicated
extensive  anomalous areas covering circa 240 acres on the yet unexplored,  western portion of the  Sand  Brook
claim group.  Thus the impetus of this ground mag & vlf survey.

Company  Chief  Geologist  Paul Lemmon cited, "I am very pleased with the results  of  the  survey,  as  strong
magnetic  zones  were  discovered and vlf results suggest new mineralized zones at Sand  Brook.   The  trending
directional  alignment  of the mag highs and vlf conductive zones correlate well to the known  extensive  shear
zone  that hosts Gold mineralization, suggestive of further new Gold zones. Further work and drilling  will  be
planned over these new anomalous areas of interest, as well as the known gold zones."

Company  Chairman  and  CEO Jeffrey Michel added, "These eight new zones of interest add significantly  to  the
results  Fundy has  already identified and on a regional basis,   be reminded that proximal Freewest  Resources
Clarence Stream Gold deposit   has  a NI-43-101 compliant indicated resource of 235,000 ounces of gold."

Scientific or technical information relating to Fundy's activity is based on direct supervision of, or has been
reviewed by, Paul Lemmon, PGeo., Chief Geologist of the Company.

                   The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
