Apex Geoscience Completes Second Phase of Work, Submits Samples for Laboratory Testing

LEWISBURG, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 -- Delta Mining and Exploration (PINKSHEETS: DMXP) is pleased to announce that Apex Geoscience LTD has completed the second phase of exploration work on Delta's Grassrange District Properties in Montana.

The program consisted of detailed mapping and collection of samples for diamond indicator mineral analysis and focused on the Homestead and Three Buttes kimberlite bodies and the Teigen Butte and Rattlesnake Butte targets. Fourteen samples were taken from the properties and submitted for processing and picking. Laboratory results vary in time and Delta will make them public as soon as they become available.

Once analyses of the results are made public, a follow-up field campaign, expected to consist of trenching with collection of large weight samples for micro-diamond analysis, will be undertaken. Diamond indicator minerals, G10 pyrope garnets, and a micro-diamond were previously recovered from the Homestead kimberlite by Delta during early reconnaissance sampling of the property.
