Curlew Lake Resources Inc. Prepares to Drill the Yukon Typhoon Gold Property in Which it Holds 100% Interest in the Over 9 Square Miles of the Tintina Gold Belt

LANGLEY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Curlew Lake Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CWQ)(PINK SHEETS:CWLXF) announces that crews and equipment have been mobilized to the Typhoon Gold project, located 360 km north of Whitehorse or 75 km west-northwest of Mayo, Yukon. A camp will be set up on site for 8 to 10 persons. The work program will consist of line cutting, geophysics (both IP and HLEM surveys), and geological mapping; to be followed by a diamond drill program of not less than 1000 metres. Drilling is expected to commence in the second half of June and be completed in July.

The property is accessible by the Barlow Dome Road, which runs along the ridge on the north side of Clear Creek from the North Klondike Highway about 80 kms south of Dawson City, for approximately 20 kms to the property area. Curlew Lake holds 100% interest in 117 mineral claims in the area, covering an area of approximately 23 square kilometers (9 square miles). The claims are subject to royalty interests only, all of which are subject to repurchase agreements which can be exercised at any time in the future.

The Typhoon property is situated within the Tintina Gold Belt to the north of the Tintina fault zone in the Selwyn basin. The claims lie primarily on the west bank of Left Clear Creek and cover the 65 Pup Creek drainage; historically both drainages have been worked for placer gold. The property is exceptionally well situated for exploration and mineral development. Although placer gold has been produced from Left Clear Creek for at least a century, no systematic exploration of the Typhoon property took place prior to 2004. The 2005 exploration program integrated a multidisciplinary review of available public information, a geological field review, satellite image interpretation, soil geochemistry and ground geophysics. A magnetic field survey completed in 2006 indicated a large magnetic high centered over the western part of the property with a series of smaller magnetic highs off to the east. These features, and the one previously identified on the eastern side of the claim block, appear to represent buried intrusive bodies.

Data from soil geochemical surveys completed in 2004 and 2005 show coincident and coherent anomalies in element suites characteristic of intrusion-related gold deposits. Centered over the eastern part of the claim block the element suite Au+As+Bi+Sb+W+U is anomalously enriched and forms a ring-shaped feature, which is cored by anomalously enriched Mo and crosscut by linear enrichments of Au+Mo+Bi. The anomalous Mo is interpreted to be related to Mo-rich veins developed over the core of a buried intrusive. The mineralization model considered most applicable in this terrane is the Intrusion-Related Gold Deposit model.

Mike Power, P. Geoph. of Aurora Geosciences Ltd., Whitehorse, Yukon will provide project supervision. Jim Turner, P. Geol., a "Qualified Person" under National instrument 43-101, will oversee the program on behalf of the Company.

Additional information will be forth coming in the next couple of weeks.
