Brilliant Mining Corp.: High Grade Massive Ni Sulphide Zone Delineated, Lanfranchi Orebody

Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, Kambalda District of Western Australia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2007) - Brilliant Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BMC) ("Brilliant" or the "Company") today announced the results of 27 holes from an ongoing resource delineation drill program for the Lanfranchi Extension in the Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, located in the Kambalda Nickel District of Western Australia. Of particular significance was the delineation of a high grade massive Ni sulphide zone to the west and alongside the projected extension of the Lanfranchi Ni channel.

Key Point Summary

- 27 drill holes reported to date

- Program extends Lanfranchi Ni sulphide mineralization

- High grade massive Ni sulphide corridor identified on the western margin, with best intersections:

-- 11.30% Ni over 33.0 metres(i)

-- 7.46% Ni over 13.8 metres(i)

-- 5.37% Ni over 24.1 metres(i)

(i)preliminary modeling indicates a 1-2 metre true thickness

- Resource delineation drill program continues

Mr. John Williamson, CEO and Director of Brilliant Mining Corp stated, "Underground drilling at the Lanfranchi Mine repeatedly confirms the continuation of mineralization down-plunge of the existing nickel sulphide channels and provides a high level of confidence for a sustained growth in the resource inventory of the project."

To date, 27 holes have been completed as part of the Lanfranchi Extension underground resource delineation drill program with assay results reported in Table 1. Nickel sulphide mineralization has been extended 60 metres down plunge from the lowest production level and across widths exceeding 200 metres. The Lanfranchi Ni channel remains open to depth.

Grades and thicknesses encountered in this drill program are in alignment with past production experience in the Lanfranchi nickel channel. Under the previous operator, the Lanfranchi orebody produced 1.4 million tonnes of ore grading 2.32% nickel, along a 1.4 kilometre plunge extent, with true thickness generally ranging from 1 to 3 metres. Mining widths of the Lanfranchi nickel channel have historically ranged between 100 to 200 metres.

A high grade massive nickel sulphide zone has been delineated along the western margin of the drill program. Drill highlights include 33m grading 11.3% Ni from hole LAN148 and 13.8m grading 7.46% from hole LAN137. An initial interpretation suggests a very low angle intercept with an estimated true thickness of 1-2 metres hosted in the basalt and situated marginally below the normal ultramafic/basalt contact target horizon. The massive Ni sulphide zone appears open both up and down-plunge and possibly to the west. The Lanfranchi Joint Venture is currently completing the initial 40-hole resource delineation drill program with the intention to model all the results as a whole for a better understanding of the extent and orientation of the high grade zone.

(1) Holes LAN123 to LAN132 have been previously released but without
copper grade
(2) True thicknesses are undetermined at this time. Intercept length to
true thickness conversion will vary based on angle of drill hole
relative to the orientation of the target horizon. Expected intercept
angles range from near perpendicular to sub-parallel.
NSG: no significant intersection
