Trenching Complete at Northern Abitibi's Viking Gold Property in Newfoundland

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2007) - Northern Abitibi Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NAI) ("Northern Abitibi") is pleased to announce that fieldwork at the Viking property in western Newfoundland is complete.

The program included construction of a 6.5 kilometer long access trail into the property and the completion of six mechanical trenches. The access trail is suitable for heavy equipment and all terrain vehicles and will greatly enhance future, more detailed exploration and field work along the four kilometer long gold-bearing system at Viking.

The trenches have been mapped and potentially mineralized zones sampled. This trenching has expanded and better delineated known gold showings, with several new zones of alteration and quartz veining discovered. Fifty one rock samples were collected and have been delivered to Eastern Analytical Ltd. in Springdale, Newfoundland for analyses. Assay results are expected shortly and these results, along with a geologic summary of the mineralized zones encountered, will be released as soon as they are available.

Discussions continue with potential drill contractors to drill test Northern Abitibi's other property in northwest Newfoundland, Taylor Brook.
