David Stypula Appointed as Vice President Corporate Finance

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2008) - Chapleau Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CHI) has initiated the Phase 3-drill program of 7,000 m on the Coringa Gold Project in Brazil. This phase of drilling will initially include targeting the strike and depth extensions of the high-grade gold zone of the Meio target (200 m strike length) and drilling along extensions and at depth of the gold zone at Serra (800 m strike length). A summary of gold results previously reported for these 2 zones includes the following:

The location of all 66 drill holes for the phase 1 and 2 drill programs and the first 12 holes for the Phase 3 program at Coringa are highlighted on the website:www.chapleauresources.com, see maps - #'s 3 and 10).

Interpretation of the IP and magnetic survey results to date has highlighted at least another 23 new targets representing approximately 3,450 m strike of potential gold mineralization, which have the same and/or better chargeability response as previously drilled gold zones such as Serra and Galena-Vesa-Boca (see website: www.chapleauresources.com, see geophysical maps - #'s 14 and15).

Ian Gendall, President of Chapleau, commented that: "The 62 line-km IP Survey together with the 90 line-km magnetic survey have provided excellent data for the definition of targets for our Phase 3 drill program. This new information combined with the 1,109 line-km EM airborne geophysical program currently underway and the previously released pan concentrate sample results will significantly enhance the expansion of the currently known 10 km of gold mineralized structures at Coringa. The discovery of additional gold-bearing parallel structures demonstrates the potential for multiple mineralized zones at Coringa. Favorable IP results have also allowed us to expand the survey an additional 24 line-km to include further regional targets identified from the pan concentrate gold anomalies."

Given the accelerating advancement of Chapleau's Brazilian gold projects, the Company is increasingly focusing on the financial requirements for project development and strategic planning. In this light, Chapleau is pleased to announce that it has appointed David Stypula as Vice President of Corporate Finance.
