Currie Rose Resources Inc.: Drilling Commences at the Mabale Hills Project, Tanzania

ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2007) - Currie Rose Resources (TSX VENTURE:CUI) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Mwamazengo gold discovery on the Mabale Hills project in central Tanzania which forms part of the Lake Victoria Joint Venture with Australian-listed Sub-Sahara Resources NL (ASX:SBS).

Ground work in preparation for drilling has been on-going at Mwamazengo and the current drill program will test the extension of mineralization at depth and the potential southern extension of the discovery.

A multi-purpose drill will provide both Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling capabilities so as to return the best possible result.

The last drill program at Dhahabu, 5 km north of Mwamazengo returned one hole (MBNR024) with significant drill results. Trenching and geophysics are being completed and further drilling is planned.

The results will be announced over the coming weeks.
