Polaris Geothermal-Operations Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2007) - Polaris Geothermal Inc. ("Polaris" or the "Company") (TSX:GEO), a renewable energy geothermal power producer, wishes to provide an update on the operations at the San Jacinto-Tizate geothermal concession in Nicaragua (the "San Jacinto Project").

The Company's subsidiary in Nicaragua, Polaris Energy (Nicaragua) S.A. ("PENSA"), has commenced drilling its next production well for the San Jacinto Project expansion. As a result of adverse drilling encountered in its first well (see press release dated August 15, 2007), the current well, which is targeting the same formation as the first well, is being drilled from a different drill pad. This well will intersect the same production target at a slightly greater depth than was the case in the first well. As of today, the well is at a depth of 140 meters with a total targeted depth of 1200 meters. It is anticipated that this well will be completed in about a month from now. The rig will then be repositioned on the same drill pad to drill a second production well.
