Donner Metals Ltd.: Drilling Intersects More High Grade Sulphides at Bracemac and McLeod

New High Grade Sulphide Zone Intersected West of McLeod

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2007) - Mr. Harvey Keats, Chief Executive Officer of Donner Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DON)(FRANKFURT:D4M) reports that drilling continues to intersect high grade sulphides over significant widths at Bracemac and at McLeod, 1.2 kilometers to the east. Exploratory drilling 180 metres west of McLeod has intersected a new, copper-rich, sulphide zone referred to as West McLeod. Drilling has now identified three vertically stacked sulphide zones at Bracemac. Three sulphide zones have been intersected at the Key Tuffite horizon at McLeod. Their extent and the possible connection between the McLeod zones have yet to be fully investigated.

Highlights of assay results reported in this news release are summarized below.

Delineation and exploratory drilling continues with three drills at Bracemac - McLeod, an area that is centered 6 kilometres southeast of Xstrata Zinc's Matagami mill. Reported in Table 1 are assays from 12 new drill holes in the Bracemac - McLeod area and from 5 holes on regional reconnaissance targets elsewhere on the property. Additional geological information, including maps and sections, is available at www.donnermetals.com. A total of 37,996 metres have been drilled since drilling began in October 2006.

Bracemac

BRC-07-60 (16.67% Zn, 0.41% Cu, 21.42 g/t Ag, 0.19 g/t Au over 12.05 metres) extended the Bracemac Key Tuffite Zone approximately 60 metres down-dip and the zone remains open. Several holes have encountered thin variable grade sulphides at the Key Tuffite horizon around the periphery of the zone with all holes intersecting an underlying, well developed alteration zone. Additional delineation drilling is planned down-dip, up-dip and to the east and west of all known mineralization. Further exploratory step outs in this area will search for additional sulphide mounds that are typical of VMS deposits.

McLeod

One step-out hole was completed on the New McLeod Zone. MC-05-18W7 (17.37% Zn, 0.41% Cu, 13.94 g/t Ag, (Au pending) over 11.59 metres) was drilled 50 metres up-dip from MC-05-18W6 (9.62% Zn, 1.33% Cu, 9.96 g/t Ag, 0.26 g/t Au over 32.22 metres) and 50 metres east of MC-05-18W4 (8.91% Zn, 1.88% Cu, 56.4 g/t Ag, 45.93 g/t Au over 11.42 metres). This zone remains open and un-delineated in all directions.

One drill hole was completed on the Old McLeod Zone. MC-07-28 (19.78% Zn, 1.54% Cu, 48.56 g/t Au, 0.59 g/t Au over 1.95 metres) was drilled 50 metres down-dip of MC-07-27 that returned 18.45% Zn, 2.11% Cu, 66.4 g/t Ag, 1.12 g/t Au over 6.67 metres and 7.36% Zn, 3.19% Cu, 143 g/t Ag, 0.90 g/t Au over 1.3 metres.

A new zone of intense alteration encountered in previous drill holes at and below the Key Tuffite was investigated by two drill holes, MC-07-29 (2.76% Zn, 1.14% Cu, 7.16 g/t Ag, 0.19 g/t Au over 3.58 meters) and MC-07-30 (1.22% Zn, 3.00% Cu, 24.73 g/t Ag, 0.12 g/t Au over 5.77 meters), to test off-hole geophysical anomalies. This zone has been named the West McLeod Zone. Further drilling will follow up the results and off-hole anomalies in both holes.

Delineation drilling continues at McLeod.

Regional Drilling

DJV-07-80 was drilled 2.5km north-east of Xstrata's Perseverance deposits as a stratigraphic test. The hole remained in hanging wall felsic volcanic rock. Holes RA-07-1 through RA-07-4 were drilled to follow up geophysical anomalies in the region between the South Flank and the West Camp. RA-07-1 and 4 intersected mafic volcanic rocks and gabbroic intrusions. RA-07-2 and 3 intersected granite.

About the Matagami Project

The Matagami Project has an area of mutual interest of 4750 square kilometres and presently includes 2778 mineral claims covering 700 square kilometres. Taking advantage of Xstrata Zinc's extensive historical database, Donner and Xstrata Canada Corporation - Xstrata Zinc Canada Division (Xstrata Zinc) are using a combination of 3D data integration, innovative advanced technologies, new concepts and diamond drilling to explore for new deposits in this prolific mining camp.

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) discovered in 1957 and mined from 1963 to 1988. The area is host to historical production of 8.6 billion pounds of Zn and 853 million pounds of Cu and has established infrastructure including the town of Matagami, a railway, a paved road, and a 2,600 t/day mill owned by Xstrata Zinc.

Donner has the option to earn a 50% participating joint venture interest in the Matagami Project by incurring a total of $20 to $23 million of expenditures on exploration and related work on or before May 31, 2011. Upon earn-in by Donner, 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 each area by incurring up to $20 million on a feasibility study.

The Company's strategy is to explore for and discover zinc - copper deposits in the Matagami Camp and to leverage the general infrastructure and existing processing facilities within a known and well-established cost structure for developing VMS deposits. Donner's exploration objective is to investigate multiple stratigraphic horizons with potential for VMS mineralization including the prolific Key Tuffite horizon throughout the Matagami Camp. Donner has discovered new mineralization at Bracemac in the Upper Bracemac and Bracemac zones and the Key Tuffite horizon. In addition to delineation drilling at Old McLeod, Donner has discovered new mineralization at New McLeod and West McLeod at the Key Tuffite horizon at McLeod.
