North American Tungsten Completes Mactung Summer Geotechnical Drilling Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - North American Tungsten Corporation Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NTC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that preliminary foundation drilling at its Mactung development project, is now complete. The geotechnical drilling was conducted to test the geological foundations, to aid planning of potential placement for developmental infrastructure such as mill site, tailings ponds and an employee camp at the Mactung project.

A total of 23 locations were explored with 42 boreholes drilled. The total drilling depth of 225 meters, with 139 meters of open hole drilling (sample recovery) and 86 meters of closed hole drilling. Test pitting was conducted over several areas in lieu of drilling. A total of 42 test pits, with total depth of 125 meters, were excavated.

Historically, the previous property owners AMAX completed multiple feasibility studies of the Mactung project. Wardrop Engineering Inc. has been engaged to review historical feasibility studies to produce an updated economic assessment on the Company's 100% owned Mactung Project. Immediately after the Mactung economic assessment is completed, a feasibility study will commence on the project.

Mactung is a strategic asset due to its size, grade and location and is one of the largest known undeveloped high grade tungsten-skarn deposits in the World. The Mactung Project is NI43-101 compliant; with indicated resources of 33 million tons grading at 0.88% WO3 and inferred mineral resource estimate of 11.3 million tons grading at 0.78% WO3.


The Company is a publicly listed Tier 1 Junior Resource Company primarily engaged in the operation, development, and acquisition of tungsten and other related mineral properties in Canada. The Company's 100% owned Cantung mine and Mactung development project make it one of the few tungsten producers with a strategic development asset in the western world. North American Tungsten will soon be the only North American listed tungsten producer following the successful Sojitz takeover of Primary Metals.
