Premium Exploration Completes 2007 Platinum Group Metals Drill Program on Their Chrome Mountain JV Project, Montana, USA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) - Premium Exploration, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PEM), is pleased to announce the completion of seven holes of the first drill program on the Chrome Mountain Joint Venture Project, located in the Stillwater Mafic Intrusive Complex in Montana, USA. The Chrome Mountain property is a joint venture with Beartooth Platinum Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BTP).

The 2007 Chrome Mountain drill program was designed to intercept the "A" & "B" Chromitite Zone which appears to parallel the JM Reef, which produced over 600,000 ounces of Platinum Group Metals (PGM's) in 2006. The "A" & "B" Chromitite Zone is widely believed to be similar to the UG2 Layer of the Bushveld Complex, South Africa, where PGM's are currently mined at 5 to 7 g/t (0.132oz to 0.185oz/ton). The drill holes averaged 260m (855ft) deep, and were centered on a greater than or equal to 1 g/t PGM soil anomaly, covering an area of approximately 2300 meters (7,544 ft) by 1000 meters (3,280 ft), compiled from over 9,000 soil samples collected by BTP during the 2006 field program.

Worth noting, in 2006, BTP's drill program on Iron Mountain, which is 7km from Chrome Mountain along the length of the Anomaly, identified zones of high Rhodium values of 1 to 2 g/t within the A and B Chromitites. As of today's date, Rhodium is trading at $6,140.00/oz, Platinum at $1,385.00/oz, and Palladium at $372.00/oz.

Beartooth Platinum Corp. has the option to earn a 50% in this project by spending $3,000,000 on exploration over the next three years. The J M Reef, which is part of the Stillwater Mafic Intrusive Complex, and is host to two of the largest PGM producing mines in North America. The Stillwater and East Boulder Mines, owned by Stillwater Mining Company (SMC) have been in production since 1992.

Beartooth Platinum Corp. employs a QA/QC protocol on all aspects of the analytical procedure. Core samples are sawn in half, one half retained for the record and the second half shipped to SGS Assay Laboratory in Toronto for assay. Samples are collected on a maximum of 1.3m (4 feet), with smaller lengths in areas of interest. Sample preparation is conducted in SGS's sample preparation Lab located in Elko, Nevada and the pulps are shipped to SGS Mineral Services Ltd. In Toronto, Canada for assay, using industry standard fire assay techniques. A blank sample is inserted within every 50 & 100 ft of core. Known standards, representing a high and low range of grade are inserted at 25 and 75 ft intervals. Approximately 12.5% of the pulps are re-analyzed by SGS.

The Quality Control and all aspects of exploration program are supervised by Mr. Wilf Struck, P.Eng., the Qualified Person ("QP"), in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.
