BacTech Provides Update on Quinto Uranium Project Drilling Program

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2007) - BacTech Mining Corporation ("BacTech" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BM) today released an update on its activities on the Godbout "A" project, located approximately 60 km east of Baie-Comeau, Quebec.

As of April 5, 2007, the Company has completed 6 drill holes on the Godbout "A" project. Of the 6 holes completed, 5 have returned radioactive readings on sections of the pegmatite drill core. Of particular interest, is the possible extension to the south of the white pegmatite dyke under Highway #138. Drill hole #7 has been targeted on the interpreted extension to the south of the highway in an area of overburden cover.

Work on the Godbout "B" project is expected to commence in May once access to the property is available. Work on the "B" project will initially involve trenching, followed by some exploratory drill holes. This work will initially focus on the area of mineralization reported in a February 22, 2007 press release. BacTech fully expects to have earned its 50% interest in the project by this summer.

Split core samples of the first 6 holes will be forwarded to ALS Chemex in Val D'Or, Quebec, for analytical work, the results of which will be press released when available.

Recently, the Company filmed some footage of the drill site which can be found on Resource World's new web site at where video footage of various resource companies is posted.


BacTech has developed and patented bacterial oxidation technology for the treatment of refractory ores and concentrates to enhance the recovery of gold, silver and base metals. BacTech has successfully commissioned three bioleach plants for gold and demonstrated its technology in the selective recovery of base metals from complex sulphide concentrates in a joint project with Industrias Penoles de C.V. of Mexico that was completed in 2001. The Company's focus is the acquisition of equity positions in projects amenable to bioleaching. Recently, the Company expanded its focus through the establishment of a uranium Joint Venture with Quinto Mining Corporation in Quebec.
