Delta Mining and Exploration Expects Results of Phase Two Exploration Shortly, Report Currently Being Analyzed

LEWISBURG, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 10, 2007 -- Delta Mining and Exploration (PINKSHEETS: DMXP) is pleased to announce that Apex Geoscience LTD has received the results of Phase Two Exploration of the Grassrange District Properties in Montana and is currently in the process of analyzing them. Once Apex has completed their study, a full report will be issued to Delta who will then make those results available to the public.

Though there have been some delays, Apex has received all the microprobe data from London, Ontario and will have a few weeks to synthesize the data and then report back to Delta. Once this report is made available, a follow-up field campaign, expected to consist of trenching with collection of large weight samples for macro-diamond analysis, will be undertaken. Diamond indicator minerals, G10 pyrope garnets, and a micro-diamond were previously recovered from the Homestead kimberlite by Delta during early reconnaissance sampling of the property.

This phase of exploration consisted of detailed mapping and collection of samples for diamond indicator mineral analysis and focused on the Homestead and Three Buttes kimberlite bodies and the Teigen Butte and Rattlesnake Butte targets. Fourteen samples were taken from the properties and submitted for processing and picking.
