TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Dynamite Resources Ltd. ("Dynamite") (TSX VENTURE:DNR) is pleased to announce that a second drill rig has arrived and is drilling at its Lake Torrens iron-oxide copper gold uranium ("IOCGU") project, located in the tenements immediately to the North, West and South of world class BHP-Billiton Limited's Olympic Dam mine in South Australia.

"The first drill rig on site, in its first drillhole, TI-009, successfully intercepted the Titan Prospect basement rocks at around 608 metres in a vertical hole that is currently approximately 900 metres from surface with a rig capable of drilling to 1,000 metres depth", stated Stan Bharti, Dynamite's Chairman.

The current drill program has been designed to test gravity anomalies that are associated, but not coincident with magnetic anomalies within basement rocks from approximately 600 metres depth and that are prospective for IOCGU mineralization of the nearby Olympic Dam and the Prominent Hill style.
