Trade Winds Intersects High Grade Gold, 120.83 Grams/Tonne Over 1.50 Metres at Detour Lake, Ontario

TIMMINS, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2007) - Trade Winds Ventures (TSX VENTURE:TWD)(FRANKFURT:TVR) is pleased to announce more results of its 13,000 metre 2007 winter diamond drill program on Block A at Detour Lake, Ontario. Block A is being explored as a 50/50 Joint Venture between Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) (50%) and Trade Winds (50%), the operator during the exploration phase.

Mr. Alex Burton, P. Eng., P. Geo., is the qualified person for Trade Winds' projects at Detour Lake. Trade Winds, as operator of the projects, has implemented a quality control program to ensure best practice in the sampling and analysis of the drill core. All fire assay results are being provided by ALS Chemex.

Management is looking to increase shareholder value by working towards the completion of the spin-out of its Tuole Gold/Copper and the Silu Zinc/Lead projects, located in the Peoples Republic of China, to a wholly owned subsidiary. Western China Mining ("WCH") proposes to list on a Canadian stock exchange following an Initial Public Offering (IPO) to fund the development programs for these projects. It is expected that TWD would own approximately 50% of WCH prior to the distribution to shareholders.

WARNING: The Company relies upon litigation protection for "forward-looking" statements.
