X-Cal Resources Ltd.: Facilities North Drill Results and Progress Report

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2007) - X-CAL Resources (TSX:XCL) is pleased to announce results from 27 Facilities North development drill holes and to report that all data for the West Wood Area, Facilities North, Facilities South and Heap Leach Pads at Sleeper will be submitted to independent qualified persons for review and mineral inventory calculations:

West Wood: 97 drill holes, within an area 275 x 300 meters.

Facilities North: 323 drill holes, within an area 600 x 700 meters.

Facilities South: 185 drill holes, within an area 750 x 300 meters.

Heap Leach Pads: trenching results, drill data and in-depth study of mine production data and reconciliation (Sonic drill program in progress).

A geologic model will also be submitted.

Metallurgical testing is ongoing at Kappes Cassiday & Associates (KCA).

Mine Development Associates (MDA) will head mineral inventory calculations.

Management sees the pending mineral inventory for Sleeper as a foundation to be built upon.

Exploration of the North West Target and the 1500-meter favorable area between NW and West Wood is a priority. Drill intercepts such as 209.2 feet averaging
0.311 opt Au (10.67 gpT) and 110 feet averaging 0.633 opt Au (21.72 gpT) at West Wood, illustrate the exploration potential of targets that are located parallel to the west side of the Sleeper Pit (See: West Wood Assay Highlights, photo of NW target drill core and long-section/illustration in 2007 X-Cal Annual Report).

FACILITIES AREA

The Facilities North Area drilling has returned consistent values, which demonstrate heap leach potential and include some higher-grade values.

A near term goal is: to assess the potential to blend Facilities mineralization with already mined material from Pads #1 thru #4 into a new efficient heap leach.

The Facilities Area is located on the east side of the Sleeper Pit.

The following drill intercepts complete the 2007 Facilities North development drill program:

HEAP LEACH PADS Sonic Drill Program

The Sonic Drill Program on the Heap Leach Pads at Sleeper should be completed, near month end. Approximately 20 tons of samples from 40 drill sites on Pads #1 thru #4 are being shipped to Kappes Cassiday for testing.

Approximately 48 million Tons of mineralized material was piled on Heap Leach Pads #1 thru #5 during operations at Sleeper, which occurred between 1986 and 1996. Dense assay data from production records has indicated a significant portion of the mineralization was not recovered. Current drilling is designed to verify the content of the pads and recoverability (See October 16, 2007 News Release).

SUMMARY

The 30 square mile epithermal gold district contains well defined mine scale targets summarized in Dr. Richard Sillitoe's paper on Sleeper Exploration Potential and Evolution of The Sleeper Gold Property by Robert Thomason, MSc. Both publications can be found at www.x-cal.com.

Sleeper is located in prime gold production territory, North Central Nevada.

The potential for the property to contain new high-grade veins is the primary exploration upside.

Previous operations at Sleeper concentrated on milling of very high-grade ore such as the Sleeper Vein. Heap leach operations were secondary and inefficient.

Management is very pleased with the progress made during 2007 to date. We look forward to the mineral inventory calculations and a new NI-43-101 report for the Sleeper Gold Property.

The contents of this release have been reviewed by Robert Thomason, M.Sc. and Larry Kornze, P.Eng., who are "Qualified Persons" as defined by NI-43-101.
