Brilliant Mining Corp.: Ore Deliveries Unaffected Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, Kambalda District, WA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Brilliant Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BMC) ("Brilliant" or the "Company") wishes to advise that the recently announced disruption to both the gas supply in Western Australia (WA) and BHP Billiton's nickel smelting operations at Kalgoorlie should not result in any business interruption for the Company's 25% owned high-grade Lanfranchi Nickel Mine, Kambalda District, Western Australia.

Electricity at Lanfranchi is supplied and distributed under contract from BHP Billiton. BHP Billiton has advised the Company that the supply of electricity to the Lanfranchi Mine is unlikely to be affected as a result of the current disruption to the gas supply.

BHP Billiton announced on 12 June 2008 that as a result of a deterioration of the Kalgoorlie Nickel Smelter furnace it would be bringing forward a planned furnace rebuild. The duration of the rebuild is estimated to be approximately four months. During this period the Lanfranchi Mine will continue to deliver ore to BHP Billiton's Kambalda Concentrator and BHP Billiton has advised the Company that at this stage it does not foresee that ore deliveries to the Kambalda Concentrator will be affected.
