Deep Drilling at the Redstone Mine Intersects up to 14.2% Nickel

TIMMINS, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 --Liberty Mines Inc. (TSX-V: LBE) ("Liberty or the Corporation") is pleased to announce that the first four diamond drill holes designed to test the "INCO" geophysical anomaly have intersected significant Ni mineralization. Diamond drill holes RS07-06 and RS07-08 were drilled from surface, and holes RS07-6A and RS07-8A were wedged from each drill hole respectively. The core lengths presented in the table are the intersected lengths, and the composite lengths are core weighted.

RS07-8A        3550      2800       3038          wedge (RS07-08) @ 434m

Diamond drill holes RS07-06 and RS07-08 are interpreted to have intersected the western margin of the nickel mineralization that represents the down-dip extension of the Redstone channel. Subsequent wedge holes were directed east which successfully intersected zones closer to the central portion of the orebody. The pierce point for RS07-6A was 15m east and 91m above RS07-06, while RS07-8A hit 57m east and 14 above RS07-08.

Two additional wedged holes off the original surface drill holes are in progress. Once completed drilling will continue to define the mineralization at approximately 3050 foot level (930m).

The project was supervised by Liberty's Vice President of Exploration, William Randall MSc (Geology), and by Henry Hutteri P. Geo, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. According to company sampling protocol, half of the diamond drill core is sampled, and sent to ALS CHEMEX Laboratory (sample preparation is completed in Timmins and sent to Vancouver for analysis). Base metal values were analysed by acid digestion and ICP-AES finish. A rigorous QA/QC program is implemented consisting of regular insertion of standards and blanks to ensure laboratory integrity.
