Delta Commences Airborne EM and Soil Geochemical Surveys

Manalo and Koninko Gold Projects

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2007) - Delta Exploration Inc. (the "Delta") (TSX VENTURE:DEV) is pleased to announce that an airborne electromagnetic (EM), magnetic and radiometric survey will commence shortly on the 100% owned Manalo and Koninko Gold Projects located in western Mali, West Africa. Spectrem Air Ltd of South Africa will conduct the surveys, which total some 4195 line kilometres covering both project areas.

In addition, Delta has commenced a soil geochemical survey on the Manalo Project in order to identify and prioritize additional targets on the 200 square kilometre permit.

Manalo Project

The Manalo Project comprises the Manalo and Balandougou licenses located 100 kilometres southwest of Bamako, the capital city of Mali. Aircore drilling completed last year intersected significant gold mineralization, including 18.48 g/t Au over 11.0 metres and 3.79 g/t Au over 8.0 metres, on a north-northwest trending structure. Reverse circulation (RC) and/or aircore (AC) drilling is planned to continue testing the Manalo structure along strike to the northwest and southeast.

Koninko Project

Koninko comprises two licenses, Koninko and Winzan, totalling 233 square kilometres, located 250 kilometres south of Bamako. RC drilling completed last year demonstrated the presence of bedrock gold mineralization. Highlights included 0.90 g/t Au over 18.0 metres hosted in granites adjacent to a contact with schistose sedimentary rocks along the 4.5 kilometre long Koninko South geochemical trend, and 3.48 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in schistose sedimentary rocks along the 15 kilometre long Koninko North geochemical trend. Targeting additional RC/AC drilling at Koninko will utilize the results of the airborne geophysical survey.
