Indicator Minerals on Sao Luis Mining's Brazilian Joint Venture Concession 117 Indicate the Presence of Primary Kimberlitic Deposits on the Property

GARDNERVILLE, NV--(Marketwire - October 10, 2007) - Sao Luis Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SAOL) (FRANKFURT: F5G) (www.saolmining.com), a diamond mining and precious metals exploration company, announced that indicator minerals found on its Brazilian Joint Venture Property 117 indicate the presence of primary kimberlitic deposits on the concession. A Ground Geomagnetic Survey is scheduled for November 2007 to locate the potential targets. The survey will use technology provided by Brazil's University of Belem, a leading institution specialized in the mining sector.


"Numerous promising anomalies were discovered in the Remote Sensing Report of the Property performed in 2007 along with numerous indicator minerals encountered in our recent bulk samplings, which leads geologists to believe that primary Kimberlite deposits may be present," says Michael J. Dillon, Sao Luis Mining's President and Chairman. "This is extremely significant for the Company," continued Mr. Dillon. "Our mining concessions have a history of significant diamond production. We first develop the easily accessible alluvial diamond deposits, while we aggressively explore and define the richer Kimberlitic deposits. An economically viable primary source located on Property 117 would add millions of carats to our diamond reserves and dramatically increase the shareholders equity."

The alluvial diamond deposits are located within river and terrace gravels in the Sao Luis River Basin, where Sao Luis Mining's concessions are located. They are transported from the primary Kimberlitic deposits where diamonds are formed at depths over 150 kilometers below the earth's surface. They are carried to the surface by volcanic activity in a mixture of magma (molten rock), minerals, and rock fragments through Kimberlitic Pipes, the "mother lode" of diamonds.
