Range Metals Inc.: Drilling Completed on Rainy River Claim Block "A", NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2007) - Range Metals Inc. (CNQ:RMIC)(FRANKFURT:YGK) and Bayfield Ventures Corp. have just completed the first drill program on the Claim Block "A" property, which is situated to the immediate southwest of Rainy River Resources gold discovery, and held 50% by Range Gold Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Range Metals Inc., and 50% by Bayfield.

Rainy River Ontario Claims Map:


Five drill holes totalling approx. 1,000 metres (about 200 metres per hole) have now been completed. These holes were targeted at defined geophysical targets and coincident gold grain sampling from the previous work program. To date, the rock types encountered are principally mafic volcanics including pillowed lavas. Some veining has been encountered in all holes, with some sulfides evident. A Bayfield geologist is now in the process of analyzing the core and systematically sampling the drill core and readying a shipment of samples from the Claim Block "A" to the assay laboratory in Saskatoon, Sask. (TSL Labs).

Progress to date with the diamond drill program in Rainy River has been good. However, a good deal of the property included in the Range Gold / Bayfield land package is overlain with large areas of swampland. This is proving to be a challenge in where and how to locate the diamond drill to best intersect underground geophysical structures now known from the geophysics conducted last winter. Bayfield is making preparations to continue the drill program into the winter months of 2007-2008 when accessibility to all drill sites would be much easier.

David J. Busch, B.A., B.Sc., PGeo., is the qualified person under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the data in this News Release.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors:
