Normabec Intersects 5.55 Metres of 1,343 G/T Ag, 0.96 % Pb and 1.85 % Zn at the Real de Catorce Silver Mining Property, Mexico

ST-BRUNO, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2007) - Normabec Mining Resources Ltd. ("Normabec"), (TSX VENTURE:NMB)(FRANKFURT:N6M) through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary Minera Real Bonanza S.A. de C.V. ("MRB"), is pleased to announce further high grade silver results obtained from three new holes (VMS-6, VMP-8 and VMP-9) from its ongoing surface and underground drilling programs on the Veta Madre structure at the Real de Catorce project in north-central Mexico.

The current program continues to be highlighted by high grade intersections generated both from the surface and underground drilling. The following table shows the most recent results returned from the depth extension of the Purisima oreshoot (underground drilling). These results confirm that the Purisima oreshoot carries bonanza grade silver as well as important base metal credits. In addition to lead and zinc, we also note the presence of antimony in significant quantity. The oreshoot has been traced so far for 150 metres laterally and 150 metres vertically. It remains open at depth and to the west.

Results released to date from the underground program indicate the presence of a strongly mineralized system. High grade silver values varying from 146 g/t up to 1,343 g/t were obtained on various widths from 1 metre up to 33.5 metres. The drilling results from the underground program conducted on the Purisima oreshoot including the latest drilling results indicated by VMP-8 and VMP-9 are listed below:

Normabec is pursuing an underground program of approximately 3,000 metres targeting this structure. These results confirm that the Purisima oreshoot extends well below the historical mine workings.

Surface drilling of the Veta Madre structure continues to yield significant intersections (grades and widths). In-fill drilling is being performed at 40-50 metre spacing, from surface down to the 150 metre level approximately. Results obtained from surface drilling come from a productive portion of the Veta Madre structure which was initially sampled over a strike length of 550 metres at surface. As previously announced, drilling results from the first four diamond drill holes at surface returned values from 277 g/t Ag to 381 g/t Ag over widths varying from 3.9 metres to 11.5 metres. Please see the table below for complete results to date including recent assays obtained on hole VMS-6:

Samples were prepared and assayed at Chemex Lab of Guadalajara, Mexico. Methods used are Au-ICP21 for gold and ME-ICP41 for multi elements including silver. Detection limits for Ag are 0.2 - 100 ppm. Silver values higher than 100 ppm are submitted to method AG-AA46 consisting of aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES or AA finish (up to 1,500 ppm Ag). QAQC was performed using two silver standards and one blank being introduced alternatively (every 25 samples). Duplicates are being performed by the laboratory.
