Newmac Resources Inc.: 159 m of 0.038% Tungsten Mineralization Found

PORT MOODY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 17, 2006) - Newmac Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NER)(FWB:N3M) is pleased to report results for diamond drill hole 06-10 on the Crazy Fox Molybdenum project, located 20 kilometers north-northwest of the village of Little Fort, B.C.

Selected Intervals of tungsten from diamond drill holes 06-10 are presented below:



---------------------------------------------------------------
From To Width Width W WO3
Hole (m) (m) (m) (ft) (%) (%)
---------------------------------------------------------------
06-10 1.5 160.5 159.0 521.5 0.038 0.048
---------------------------------------------------------------
Including 7.5 154.5 147.5 483.8 0.040 0.050
---------------------------------------------------------------
13.5 133.5 120.0 393.6 0.043 0.054
---------------------------------------------------------------


Hole 06-10 is located on the eastern flank of the Crazy Fox mineralized intrusive complex. Tungsten is typically zoned around or flanking the upper portions of "Climax Mo/W deposits", which is consistent with the location of this diamond drill hole on the Crazy Fox property.

Molybdenum is widespread on the property and its grade is controlled to a large extent by the degree of fracturing present. Exploration to date has focused in locating those zones, which are likely to produce optimum mineralization with optimum fracturing. The project continues to encounter widespread and variable mineralization in both molybdenum and tungsten. Results will be published as they are received.

Assays were performed by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. Molybdenum and Tungsten assays were determined by aqua-regia acid digestion and ICP analysis.
