Donner Metals Ltd.: Copper-Rich Massive Sulphides Intersected in BRC-07-32 in the Bracemac Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 10, 2007) - Further to the Company's news release dated March 5, 2007, Mr. Harvey Keats, Chief Executive Officer of Donner Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DON)(FRANKFURT:D4M), reports that assays from previously described drill hole BRC-07-32 returned an average of 1.98% copper and 2.99% zinc over a 21.25 metre interval. The interval is comprised of 17.05 metres of massive sulphide averaging 2.47% copper, 3.72% zinc with 4.20 metres of internal barren dykes. This interval is underlain by an extensive alteration/stringer zone encountered over a 120.55 metre interval immediately below the sulphide horizon.

Drill hole BRC-07-32 is a 50 metre step-out to the west of the massive sulphides intersected in BRC-06-27 that returned an average of 13.98% zinc and 3.69% copper over 8.8 metres (see news release dated January 19, 2007). Metal zonation, typical of VMS deposits, is clearly demonstrated in the results of the five reported intersections in the Bracemac Zone (see news release dated January 19, 2007, January 30, 2007 and March 5, 2007). Details of BRC-07-32 are provided in the table included in this news release.

Ongoing drilling at Bracemac is designed to outline the recently discovered Bracemac Zone and Upper Bracemac Zone in addition to testing the Key Tuffite, the historically productive horizon in the Matagami Mining Camp.

About the Matagami Project

Donner has the option to earn a 50% participating joint venture interest in the Matagami Project from Xstrata Zinc Canada (Xstrata Zinc) by incurring $20 million of expenditures, plus an additional one time discovery bonus of up to $3 million in additional exploration expenditures, on exploration and related work on or before May 31, 2011. Upon exercising the option, five separate joint ventures will be formed, covering the property and the area of interest. In each of the five joint venture areas, Xstrata Zinc has the option to earn back a 15% interest in such area by incurring up to $20 million on a feasibility study.

The Matagami Mining Camp is a world-class mining district, with 18 known VMS deposits, including 10 past producers of varying sizes, including the giant Mattagami Lake deposit (25.64 million tonnes of 8.2% Zn, 0.56% Cu, 20.91 g/t Ag and 0.41 g/t Au).
