GLOBAL INVESTMENT UPDATE: Aurelio Resource Corporation Announces the Start of Drilling at the Company's Courtland Copper Project, Arizona

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 16, 2006 --

Vancouver, BC -- November 16, 2006 -- Global Developments, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GBDP), a publicly traded venture capital company, is pleased to provide the following update with respect to Aurelio Resource Corporation, a mineral exploration company in which Global holds an equity stake.

Littleton, CO - November 16, 2006 -- Aurelio Resource Corporation (OTCBB: AULO) is pleased to announce that drilling has begun on the Company's wholly owned Courtland Copper project, located in the Turquoise Mining District, Cochise County, Arizona.

The Company is undertaking a 7,500-foot core drilling program designed to confirm and expand prior drilling at the project, where more than 60 core and RVC drill holes have been drilled by a number of major mining companies over the past 50+ years. Several previously drilled holes will be twinned; a number of additional in-fill and step-out holes are also planned, with the objective of increasing the previously delineated open-pit resources.

Diamond drilling is being undertaken by Boart Longyear (Peoria, AZ). Core will be shipped to Skyline Labs in Tucson for preparation and assaying. The Company's Quality Assurance/Quality Control standards, policies and procedures are in place.

Pre-feasibility metallurgical test work will be performed by Resource Development Inc. (Arvada, Colorado) on each of the oxide, sulfide and mixed ore zones to determine metallurgical recovery rates and amenability of the mineralized zones to heap-leaching with SX/EW recovery of copper, and conventional mining, milling, flotation and concentration. Contracts have also been signed with various consulting firms to begin collection of baseline environmental data at the Courtland and MAN copper projects.

Upon completion of the initial drilling and metallurgical test work program, Aurelio will commission an independent third-party calculation of mineral resources and mineable reserves at the Courtland and MAN copper projects as part of a larger pre-feasibility study of the two deposits. In preparation of this, the Company has begun digitizing the historical exploration databases from the two properties, which include core and RVC drill logs and assay data from 170 drill holes. Further information concerning the Arizona drilling program will be released as it becomes available.
