Aquila Announces Major Expansion of Pinwheel Massive Sulfide-Including 5.0 Meters of 19.89% Zinc and 23.5 Meters of 3.1 Grams Per Tonne Gold

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - AQUILA RESOURCES INC. (TSX:AQA)(FRANKFURT:JM4A) ("Aquila" or the "Company") today announced results from the first seven holes targeting down dip and strike extensions of the Pinwheel massive sulfide zone. Sixteen step-out holes have been completed at the Pinwheel target, with 14 returning significant massive sulfide intercepts, which have significantly expanded the Pinwheel lens down dip and along strike. Results from the first seven holes are summarized in the table below.

The Pinwheel massive sulfide was previously the target of close spaced drilling to define near surface gossan and copper rich massive sulfides resulting in a 43-101 compliant measured and indicated resource of 1.25 million tonnes of 1.64% copper, 0.89% zinc, 2.53 g/t gold and 65.7 g/t silver - part of a larger 6.6 million tonne measured and indicated massive sulfide resource identified at the Back Forty Project (see Technical Report dated April 30, 2007 by Theodore DeMatties).

Significant thicknesses of base-metal bearing massive sulfides encountered in recent drilling has increased the size of the Pinwheel Zone for greater than 100 meters along strike and 100 meters down dip beyond the limits used in the 2007 NI 43-101 resource calculation. The drill holes reported above were step outs of 25 to 40 meters from previous intercepts.

The zone remains open to the southwest, and current drilling is continuing to trace the down dip and southwest strike extensions of the Pinwheel zone, encountering both copper and zinc rich massive sulfides over significant widths.

Drilling is also ongoing to further define the Main Zone Hinge massive sulfide and closely related porphyry margin gold mineralization, down plunge extensions of the Main Zone South Limb and the Deep Zone massive sulfides, as well as associated stringer mineralization.

An up to date plan map of completed and pending holes is available on the company's website at http://www.aquilaresources.com/projects.php#map.
