Galore Expands to Mexico & Hires VP Exploration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) - Galore Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GRI) announces the expansion of its mining interests into Mexico with the establishment of a subsidiary office and the appointment of a senior mining executive to direct its Mexico exploration activities.

The Mexican office operations will be directed by Octavio Gonzalez, Galore's newly appointed Vice President of Exploration for Mexico. Mr. Gonzalez will manage the company's new office in San Luis Potosi, central Mexico, and begin immediately to evaluate a series of potential new mining opportunities.

Galore President, Michael W. Byrne says, "Our commitment to expand our mining interests into Mexico confirms Galore's corporate goal to create a company that is active on a year round basis." Byrne adds, "We intend to acquire and explore prime geological targets in mining friendly jurisdictions such as Mexico and Mr. Gonzalez's extensive knowledge and on-site presence will enable Galore to evaluate Mexico-based opportunities in a first-hand and more timely manner."

Mr. Gonzalez is both a graduate of geological engineering and former professor in the Faculty of Engineering from the University of Mexico.

During Mr. Gonzalez's 20-plus years of experience in mining precious metals and industrial minerals, he has worked extensively in Mexico and Peru. Mr. Gonzalez has carried out consultant positions as a structural analyst, cartographer and field geologist on internationally recognized projects such as the Copalquin project in Durango State and "El Cajon" hydroelectric project in Nayarit State. Mr. Gonzalez has held senior-level geological positions in Mexico with Placer Ltd., Minera Casabel and Minera Colibri.

Mr. Gonzalez will assess prospective Mexico properties and coordinate exploration with our Canada-based Vice President of Exploration, Mr. Uwe Schmidt. Byrne said, "Mr. Schmidt's 35 plus years of mineral exploration experience in base and precious metals in BC, Mexico and Peru will compliment Mr. Gonzalez's extensive knowledge and expertise in Mexico as they work together to acquire mineral assets."

Galore Resources Inc. is a Canada-based publicly traded company that is actively exploring highly prospective mineral-resource targets in British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. Galore is currently drilling its Taseko Lake property for copper, gold and molybdenum in southwest British Columbia. Galore also just completed initial sampling of its six uranium targets in the Northwest Territories.
