Howlett Research Corp. Publishes New Research Report on Abcourt Mines Inc.

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - October 23, 2007) - Howlett Research Corp. (www.howlett-research.com), a boutique research firm led by Jeff Howlett, President, announced today that it has published a research report on Abcourt Mines Inc. ("Abcourt") (TSX-V: ABI) (PINKSHEETS: ABMBF) (www.abcourt.com).

Abcourt now has active programs at several base metal properties and a gold property (all 100% owned), all located in Quebec's prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

   1. The Abcourt-Barvue Zinc-Silver property unifies two past producers
      with significant exploration/development work. It has been the
      subject of a recent optimized feasibility study on a 500 million
      lb. Zn, 13+ million ounce Ag orebody over a 13-year minelife.
      Additional inferred resources and clear exploration potential could
      result in a long life asset. Abcourt is continuing with a development
      program at Abcourt-Barvue (permitting, raising financing, etc.)
   2. Elder Gold Property. Plans are to re-open the 43-101 compliant
      200,000 ounce gold resource following a successful drill program
      in 2005/06.
   3. The Jonpol Copper-Zinc-Silver property has known resources and
      short-term exploration potential to add more. Jonpol also represents
      a historic target for a large massive sulphide deposit. A $300,000,
      2500-meter drill program has begun.
   4. The Aldermac Zinc-Copper property, with known resources at the
      previous mine and undeveloped high-grade discovery/resource in
      1987/88. There is considerable valuable underground development.
      Abcourt is now preparing for a $300,000 drilling program there.
