Capella Mobilizes Drill Rig to Nevada Gold Project in Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - CAPELLA RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:KPS)(PINK SHEETS:CPSJF) ("Capella" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has mobilized a core drill rig to its 100% owned Nevada gold property in northern Chile. The drill program will test a combination of magnetic and induced polarization (IP) geophysical anomalies coincident with intensely altered mineralized surface outcrops.

The Company has contracted Major Drilling Chile S.A. of Santiago, Chile to drill three core holes to depths of up to 400 meters. The program is expected to be completed within five weeks, weather permitting. Typically drilling can be conducted until mid-May before winter weather sets in.

Access to the Nevada gold property is by all-weather gravel and paved roads from Copiapo, approximately 160 kilometres to the west. The Nevada project drill area lies ten kilometres south of Kinross's Maricunga gold mine (formerly the Refugio gold mine) and six kilometres north of Exeter's Caspiche gold-copper project. A recently completed power line to the Maricunga gold mine lies three kilometres to the north of project site.

Three, relatively short, drill holes were completed in early 1990's by Minera Mount Isa Chile S.A. on the Nevada property yielding sporadic gold mineralization. Additional information regarding this historic data can be found on the Company's website at
