Aquila Drills 20.7 Meters of 6.79% Copper and 287.6 g/t Silver Near Surface at the Pinwheel Zone and 31.2 Meters of 9.62% Zinc and 4.1 g/t Gold in the Main Zone Hinge

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2006) - AQUILA RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:AQA)(FRANKFURT:JM4A) ("Aquila" or the "Company") today announced high grade copper and gold intercepts from the Pinwheel Zone, plus high grade zinc and gold intercepts from the East Zone and Main Zone Hinge areas, at the Back Forty Project in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The three zones are located along 450 meters of strike length where Aquila is currently targeting near surface mineralization.

Highlights include:

Pinwheel Zone:

- 20.7 meters of 6.79% copper, 287.6 grams/tonne (g/t) silver in massive sulfide in LK-127P

- 23.0 meters of 3.3 g/t gold, 56.2 g/t silver in gossan underlain by 12.4 meters of 3.26% copper, 51.1 g/t silver in massive sulfide in LK-116P

- 6.7 meters of 26.0 g/t gold in gossan in LK-117P

- 3.2 meters of 22.9 g/t gold in gossan underlain by 14.5 meters of 2.8 9% copper, 62.0 g/t silver in massive sulfide in LK-119P

- 25.5 meters of 1.05% copper, 1.34% zinc in massive sulfide in LK-123P

East Zone:

- 41.6 meters of 1.8 g/t gold, 3.45% zinc including 16.1 m of 2.7 g/t gold, 7.70% zinc in massive sulfide in LK-114E

Main Zone Hinge:

- 31.2 meters of 4.1 g/t gold, 9.62% zinc including 18.8m of 4.5 g/t gold, 14.53% zinc in massive sulfide in LK-115

"We are pleased to see very significant copper values in the massive sulfides at the Pinwheel Zone," stated Tom Quigley, Aquila's President. "These values, along with overlying gold rich gossans, have important economic implications for this near surface zone. We are also pleased to see good results from the Main Zone Hinge mineralization, as this thickened lens of massive sulfide represents an important connection between the near surface East and Pinwheel zones".

Four holes from the East Zone and 20 from the Pinwheel Zone remain to be reported, and assay results from these holes will be released in the order and sequence they are received. One drill rig continues to test the Main Zone Hinge area located between the East and Pinwheel zones, and details of the current drilling, including a plan view map of the drillhole locations and outline of the East, Pinwheel, and Main Zone Hinge areas are available on the company's website at http://www.aquilaresources.com/projects.php#map.

Sample preparation and analyses for this release were conducted by Accurassay Labs in Thunder Bay, Ontario on split drill core supplied by Aquila. Standards were inserted in the sample sequences with check assays and re-run's routinely conducted. Tom Quigley, P.Geo. and President of Aquila is the Qualified Person as described in National Instrument 43-101 for the Back Forty Project and is responsible for the content of this press release.
