Kent Exploration Inc.: Rosebud Metallic Assay Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 30, 2007) - Kent Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KEX) ("Kent" or the "Company") reports that it has received results from Process Research Associates ("PRA") of Richmond BC, from a metallic assay of a sample taken from the stope fill at the 100 level of the underground workings on its Rosebud property, a gold/silver target in northern Arizona.

A total of 4.1 kg of the 4.8 kg sample was processed by gravity and, due to a suspected nugget effect, a metallics gold assay was performed on the sample. A visible flake of gold was observed during the panning of the concentrate prior to the final assay. The calculated head from the 3-pass gravity test came to 9.3 g/t Au (0.2712 oz/t Au). A gravity recovery of 87% was achieved.

The metallics assay was also performed to provide the Company with the necessary information to conduct a comprehensive sampling of the approximately 2,600 feet of underground workings, where a chip/channel sample grading 170.5 g/t Au (4.98 o/t Au) and 217 g/t Ag (6.33 o/t Ag) was taken from the 100 level, as disclosed in the Company's November 2005 NI-43-101-compliant report. While the sample taken from the stope fill compares favorably to the average gold grade of 0.2 oz/t Au (6.2 g/t Au), reported by Bayrock in his 1986, non-43-101-compliant report, on his sampling of the above ground mine tailings, it is not considered by the Company to be representative of the grade of the entire stope fill.

Kent Exploration Inc. is a mineral exploration company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and trades under the symbol KEX. The Company's main objective is the acquisition of, and financing of exploration on, prospective mineral properties.

The Company has earned a 50% interest in the Ivanhoe Creek property, a Midas-style gold/silver target in Nevada's Carlin Trend and is earning a 100% interest in the Rosebud property, a gold/silver prospect in northern Arizona. The Company has entered into a mining lease option on the Brokers Best property, a gold/silver/barite prospect in eastern Washington.
