Montoro's Crackingstone-Orbit Uranium Project, Uranium City, Sask. Airborne Survey Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 7, 2008) - International Montoro Resources Inc. ("IMT") (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IMT)(FRANKFURT:O4T) is pleased to announce further developments from its exploration programs at the Crackingstone-Orbit Uranium Projects located near Uranium City, Saskatchewan. The Company and its partners Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BEA) and Ultra Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ULU) have concluded that the Project areas have significant potential for discovering new uranium mineralization. The recent airborne radiometric and magnetic survey program carried out by the Company and its joint venture partners covered a total area of 12,091 ha, and consisted of 1,391 line km of 100 meter flight line spacing. The 100 meter line spacing with low altitude and low survey speed of the helicopter-borne system provided exceptional resolution and sensitivity, and has identified numerous NE-SW radiometric anomalies in the northwest and southeast portion of the property. Many of these new radiometric anomaly areas have had no previous exploration work. The joint venture partners are awaiting the assay results from 290 channels and grab samples taken from 25 known uranium showings on the Orbit-Crackingstone property this past summer. The samples were submitted to the Saskatchewan Research Lab in Saskatoon, with results expected soon.

Airborne Survey Highlights

The Orbit Fault Zone is a major NE-SW structural feature crossing through the property with a strike length of over 15 km. The airborne survey has identified a total of four major uranium anomaly trends to the NW of this fault having linear strike distances of 1 to 4.5 km long. The first area is located east of Orbit Bay, and has a strike length of 4 km. A second uranium anomaly trend is located just north of Orbit Bay and also has a strike length of 4 km. A third uranium anomaly trend is located north, west and northwest of Showing #1451 (Beck #44 from L.S. Beck report "Uranium Deposits of the Athabasca Region") at Augier Lake. Other significant uranium anomalies are located to the west and north of this showing. A fourth significant uranium anomaly trend of over 4.5 km in length is located along the west flank of the Orbit Fault near its northeast extension on the property. Some of the strongest uranium anomaly trends are located on the southeast portion of the property around the original Crackingstone claim area, where over 18 significant uranium showings occur.

The Company and its partners have also recently returned from the Saskatchewan Geological Survey Open House, and met with a number of individuals and groups with experience in the exploration and development of uranium deposits in the Athabasca region. Management will continue to discuss the Crackingstone-Orbit Project developments with these parties, and looks forward to the commencement of diamond drilling on selected targets in 2008.
