Aberdeen Provides Update on Indata Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - July 14, 2005) - Aberdeen International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AAB) and Eastfield Resources Ltd. have completed two diamond drill holes at the Indata property located approximately 130 kilometres to the northwest of Fort St. James in central British Columbia. Aberdeen International is funding the current program.

Drilling commenced on June 14 and was finished on July 4, 2005. The main objectives for the drilling were to determine if the copper porphyry mineralization encountered in earlier drill holes could be extended westerly and to greater depths.

The first hole of the program 2005-I-1 was drilled to a depth of 100 metres and was suspended at this depth due to difficult drilling conditions. The hole was collared 50 metres to the west of hole 98-4 which had returned an intercept of 154 metres grading 0.20% copper including a higher-grade intercept of 0.37% copper over the last 24 metres when drilled in 1998. The hole predominantly encountered a monzo-diorite intrusive with considerable breccia. Assays are expected in about two weeks.

The second hole of the program designated, 2005-I-3, following the abandonment of hole 2005-I-2, was drilled to a depth of 152 metres. This hole encountered diorite though its full extent. Considerable silicification was noted. Holes 2005-I-1 and 2005-I-3 are approximately 1600 metres distant from each other.

The Indata property consists of 16 claims encompassing 2990 hectares 7390 acres. The property is situated in a complex geological setting adjacent to the major terrane-bounding Pinchi Fault. Several styles of mineralization have been discovered on the property including gold-silver veins and porphyry style copper (gold) (molybdenum) mineralization hosted in mafic volcanic rocks and related intrusions. More recently exploration efforts have focused on the porphyry style mineralization.
