ATW Expands Burnakura-80 Meter Step-out From Underground Workings

Returns 11.2 gpt Gold Over 9 Meters

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - ATW Venture Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ATW)(FRANKFURT:A3N) ("ATW", the "Company") is pleased to announce initial assay results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Burnakura gold mine in Western Australia.

Drilling has intersected mineable intervals of gold mineralization extending the known orebody 80 meters north along strike from the most northern measured resource block at the 5 level of the NOA production decline.

Drill intercepts are summarized in the following table:

Total From To Width Gold
Hole # Prospect Depth Azimuth Dip (meters) (m) (m) (g/t)
8NAC001 NOA 2 150 268 -60 122 126 4 3.02
and 133 139 6 3.16
8NAC002 NOA 2 156 268 -60 138 147 9 11.20
8NAC003 NOA 2 124 267 -60 Did not reach target depth
8NAC004 NOA 2 209 270 -60 152 155 3 11.96

In light of these results, ATW is committed to increasing the exploration program at Burnakura and has resolved to increase the current drill program from 5000m to 20,000m.

Burnakura has been underexplored to date. It is the Company's belief that increased drilling activity will support the geological modeling of a large-scale mesothermal gold system.

Brent Butler, President and CEO of ATW Venture Corp is responsible for the Burnakura exploration program. All samples were submitted for preparation and analysis using fire assay with an AAS finish by Genalysis Laboratory Services Pty Ltd at its facilities in Perth, Western Australia.
