Drill Hole LK-180 Hits 169 Meters of Continuous Mineralization

Drilling Also Outlines Potential Major Expansion of the Main Zone Massive Sulfide

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2007) - AQUILA RESOURCES INC. (TSX:AQA)(FRANKFURT:JM4A) ("Aquila" or the "Company") today announced that drilling of the Main Zone Hinge has intersected 169 meters of continuous mineralization in drill hole LK-180. Significant zinc, copper, gold, and silver values were intersected as the hole encountered three principle zones of mineralization. The Company also announced that drilling deep below the Pinwheel Zone has intersected a potential major extension of massive sulfides at depth.

The holes tabulated above were a fan of holes on Section 435125E designed to intersect and better define four mineralized zones in this area. The drilling will have positive implications for the expansion of the massive sulfide resource at the project, as well as the potential for primary gold mineralization.

Main Zone Hinge

The Main Zone Hinge is a wide zone of primarily zinc rich massive sulfides with underlying stringer copper and gold mineralization. Drilled widths in this area are consistently wide, and included 60.6 meters of 6.4% zinc in LK-179. Gold enriched massive sulfides (2.9 meters of 50.1 g/t gold) were encountered in the upper portion of this hole. Underlying the Main Zone Hinge massive sulfide, mineralized stringer sulfides were encountered including 55.0 meters of 3.3 g/t gold and 6.4 meters of 2.01% copper and 31.3 g/t silver.

PM Gold Zone

The PM Gold Zone is a zone of porphyry margin gold mineralization. PM Zone gold mineralization included 4.75 meters of 3.62 g/t gold and 254.8 g/t silver in LK176 and 11.0 meters of 8.2 g/t gold and 53.5 g/t silver in LK-180. PM Zone gold mineralization in LK-180 appears to be an extension of a previous intercept in drill hole 108431 (27.5 meters of 5.1 g/t gold) 40 meters to the south. More drilling is required on this zone to determine its strike and continuity. These results are considered very encouraging. A program of drilling targeting primary gold mineralization related to the PM Zone as well as the 90 Gold Zone remains to be completed at the Back Forty.

Main Zone South Limb

The South Limb massive sulfide is the down dip extension of the Main Zone Hinge on the south side of the central quartz feldspar porphyry which hosts the PM Gold Zone. This massive sulfide is primarily zinc rich as evidenced by the intercept in LK-176 that encountered 17 meters of 11.7% zinc.

Deep Zone

The Deep Zone underlies massive sulfide and stringer mineralization of the Main Zone Hinge, and includes copper, zinc, gold and silver enriched massive and semi massive sulfides. New intercepts in the Deep Zone in LK-183 included significant thicknesses of gold, silver and copper mineralization. The Deep Zone is the target of further definition at depth and remains open to expansion.

New Mineralization

Drilling has intersected previously unidentified zinc rich massive sulfides at depth in the down plunge direction of both the Main Zone Hinge and Main Zone South Limb. Two step out holes on the Pinwheel Zone, which showed significant footwall alteration, were extended and intersected 12 and 7 meters of zinc rich massive sulfides in an area devoid of drill testing. The new intercepts are 60 meters to the west and 45 meters north from the nearest massive sulfide intercept and may represent a significant western strike extension of the Main Zone South Limb. Assay results for these as well as other pending holes will be reported when completed.

An up to date plan map of completed and pending holes is available on the company's website at http://www.aquilaresources.com/projects.php#map.
