Brigadier Gold (TSX-V: BRG) Begins Drilling at Hunter Mine

Program to test down-plunge extension of high-grade shoot at past producer located adjacent to the Dome Mine

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - Brigadier Gold Limited ("Brigadier" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BRG) today announced that the previously announced drill program to test the down-plunge extension of gold mineralization at the Hunter Mine, a past producer located adjacent to the Dome Mine near Timmins, Ontario, has commenced ahead of schedule.

Brigadier has an option to acquire, from ValGold Resources Ltd., an up to 80% interest in the Hunter Gold Mine. Gold mineralization occurs as a high-grade shoot within a mineralized horizon up to 15 metres thick, over a strike length of 470 metres and to a depth of 200 metres as defined by drilling and underground work. Importantly, the mineralization is open both along strike to the north and south, and to depth.

The high-grade shoot, which extends from surface, has an indicated horizontal or strike length of 68 metres and an average grade of 10.3 g/t gold over a width of 1.3 metres, and can be traced down-plunge for 300 metres. Previous drilling indicates that the high-grade shoot persists to a vertical depth of 150 metres, with intersections including 44.16 g/t over 1.13 metres, 25.68 g/t over 1.0 metres, 18.24 g/t over 1.53 metres, 15.77 g/t over 1.55 metres, and 11.44 g/t over 1.6 metres.

Brigadier has seven initial diamond drill holes planned as follows:

- Four holes to test the continuation of the length, width and grade of the main ore shoot mineralization down the 30 degree plunge to the north.

- Three holes to test a favourable horizon to the southwest and on strike with the Dome Super Pit where there is no record of previous drilling.

"The Hunter Mine property is an excellent asset with significant upside potential both in the mine itself and elsewhere on this under-explored property," said Herb Kokotow, President. "This first phase of drilling by Brigadier is designed to give us a better understanding of the Hunter mineralization and to identify targets for further drilling."

Exploration at the Hunter Mine is being supervised by Dr. Derek McBride, P.Eng., Brigadier Gold's Senior Geologist and a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101. Dr. McBride has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
