Chapleau Commences a 70.7 Line km Ground IP Survey in Preparation for the 7,000 m Phase 3 Drill Program

CRANBROOK, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Chapleau Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CHI) has commenced a 70.7 line km IP (induced polarization) dipole-dipole, geophysical survey over approximately 7.0 km of gold-bearing structures at Coringa (see maps on website www.chapleauresources.com). This geophysical survey will be used to better define drill targets being planned for the 7,000 m, third phase diamond drill program to commence in August 2008.

The 7,000 m diamond drill program will be done with two drill rigs and will target:

1. Extensions of gold mineralization along the Guaxebinha-Meio-Onca structure that has a strike length of 1,120 m. Limited drilling (4 drill holes) in the Meio zone has identified high grade gold over an area of 200 m. Previous drill results included:

- Hole 62 with 3.0 m of 65.77 g/t (1.92 oz/t) Au, 65.17 g/t (1.90 oz/t) Ag, 6.03 % Pb, 4.35 % Zn and 0.45 % Cu from 56 to 59 m.

- Hole 11 (This hole was drilled approximately 50 m northwest of hole 62) with 2.0 m of 23.67 g/t Au, 28.25 g/t Ag and 1.67 % Pb from 50 to 52 m).

- Hole 65 with 5.0 m of 3.57 g/t Au, 28.73 g/t Ag, 2.23 % Pb, 1.91 % Zn and 0.25 % Cu from 113.5 to 118.5 m. This hole was drilled approximately 33 m northeast of Hole 62.

2. Gold mineralization below 150 m depth on the Serra structure which had the following best drill intercepts highlighted in the table below and previously reported in press releases on website www.chapleauresources.com.
