Cigma Metals Corporation (Cigma, the Company) Is Very Pleased to Announce That Drilling Has Begun on the Company's Central Berezki Target Area Within the Company's 14,000 km2 Dostyk Project in


COOLUM BEACH, AUSTRALIA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- Cigma Metals Corporation (PINKSHEETS: CGMX) (FRANKFURT: C9K) (XETRA: C9K) is very pleased to announce that all the infrastructure requirements for this season's exploration program are now in place and that drilling has commenced on the Central Berezki (Berezki) target area. Berezki is part of a large (6km x 2km) gold-copper-porphyry system consisting of three major prospects, Berezki, Quartzite Gorka and Karagandy-Ozek, which in turn include a number of other mineralization zones.

The Berezki target is characterized by three mineralization zones with a total length of over 4 km and widths ranging from 1 to 2 km. The zones are still open at depth and have been previously drill tested to depths over 350m. Significant mineralisation was recorded by previous diamond drill holes, and Cigma is targeting these areas to test the validity and depth extensions. The results will be utilised to convert the previous resource estimates into a western compliant format to satisfy the Australian Joint Ore reserves committee code for reporting of mineral resources and ore reserves (the J.O.R.C. code).

Historical reported drill intersections over the target area include:

100m with an average gold grade 0.5g/t, copper 0.3%

132m @ 0.5g/t Au and 0.2% Cu including 30.4m @ 1.67g/t Au and 1.16% Cu, 24m @ 0.56g/t and 0.51% Cu, 42m @ 0.3g/tAu and 1.1% Cu.

The Company also has at its disposal a library of the entire core collected from previous workers dating back to 1995, which is kept in storage for future reference, near to the Company's field offices.

The Company's infrastructure also includes fully staffed offices, with all the necessary computing and messaging requirements. The Company has also arranged for all samples to be prepared onsite and the 200gram pulverized and homogenized fraction then dispatched to a commercial laboratory approximately 250km from the project area. The Company attains to a strict code of QAQC (quality control) when handling and processing all samples.

All samples will undergo Atomic-absorption (AA) spectroscopy (AAS) assays for gold and spectral emission for a further 24 elements. The samples with elevated metal values will then be processed by the internationally accredited Alex Stuart Laboratory in Kyrgyzstan.

Cigma Metals Corporation is a mineral exploration company focusing on the exploration and development of its 3 exploration properties totaling 740 square kilometers in the Tomsk Oblast region of Siberia in Russia, and approximately 14,000 square kilometers in the Dostyk region of Kazakhstan.
