TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company" or "AEI") (TSX VENTURE:AXI) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into an Assignment and Assumption Agreement (the "Agreement) with PinPoint Xploration Inc. ("PinPoint") with respect to the License Agreement for laser exploration of petroleum resources between AEI and Laser Diagnostic Instruments International Inc. (LDI3). Under this Assignment and Assumption Agreement, AEI hereby assigns to PinPoint the License Agreement and all right, title and interest of AEI to that agreement, with PinPoint assuming all obligations of AEI under the License Agreement and performing all obligations of AEI. PinPoint also agrees to release, discharge and indemnify and save AEI harmless from and against all actions, suits, costs, losses, damages and expenses in respect of all such obligations arising from the agreement.

As partial consideration for this assignment and assumption, PinPoint agrees to allot and issue to AEI 111,111 ordinary shares in the capital of PinPoint, which shares will represent, immediately following their issue to AEI, 10% of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares in the capital of PinPoint. A certificate representing such shares will be delivered to AEI on or before August 30, 2007. AEI will have the right to participate in any future financings to maintain its equity interest.

"The Roche Bay iron ore project demands our full attention." John Gingerich, President and CEO of Advanced Explorations Inc. went on to say, "We are very pleased that we have been able to work with LDI3 in identifying PinPoint as a partner to lead the charge in developing oil and gas opportunities using LDI3 remote sensing technology. While we strongly believe application of LDI3 airborne petroleum mapping technology represents an exceptional business opportunity, the Company simply does not have the resources to pursue both opportunities at the same time. By securing an interest in PinPoint the Company can still benefit from future oil and gas successes while remaining focused on its core business."
