Trenching Confirms Extension of Zone at Million Mountain; Continuous Channel Samples Include 18 m. @ 5.63 g/t Au

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 29, 2006 -- SACRE-COEUR MINERALS, LTD. (TSX-V: SCM) (FRANKFURT: S5N) (the "Company") today announced that it has received assays from Loring Laboratories Inc. of Georgetown Guyana for samples from four trenches located approximately 150 meters west of its previously reported discovery holes at its Million Mountain Project located in the Puruni River region of Guyana. The trenches were excavated to test the dominant vein sets of the stock-work system occurring to the west of the high grade shear zone discovered in the initial drill holes. Results of the trenching confirm extension to the west of the near-surface, gold-bearing anomalous zone at Million Mountain and are being used to assist in targeting holes in connection with the Company's ongoing core drilling program.

Trenches TR0206, which yielded 39 meters @ 3.66 g/t Au, and TR0406, which yielded 27 meters @ 3.40 g/t Au are oriented North-South. Trenches TR0206 and TR0406 were excavated approximately 16 meters apart. Trench TR0306 which yielded 18 meters @ 5.63 g/t Au is oriented East - West to the North of the North end of trenches TR0206 and TR0406. Trench TR0506 was excavated across the contact of the Million Mountain Break, a regional scale, low angle discontinuity oriented West-Southwest / East-Northeast which seems to be the principal structural control for the Million Mountain deposit and potentially others for several kilometres along strike. Trenches were excavated to a depth of approximately two meters. All trenches were continuously channel-sampled for their entire length. Sample intervals were uniform at 1.5 meters each. Sample volume taken per unit length was approximately equal to that of NQ drill core. Summary assay data, location and orientation details are provided in the tables below.
