Dynamite Resources Ltd.: Major Diamond Drilling Program Commences at Lake Torrens IOCG(U) Prospect Adjacent to Olympic Dam, South Australia

Highlights - Drilling has commenced at the Titan Prospect within the Lake Torrens IOCG(U) Project, South Australia. - The Titan Prospect is a confirmed IOCG(U) - style mineralized system. - The Lake Torrens IOCG(U) Project is located immediately to the north, east and west of the world class BHP Billiton Limited's Olympic Dam Mine in South Australia. - The Titan Prospect is located approximately 25km from Olympic Dam

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) -


Dynamite Resources Ltd. ("DNR") (TSX VENTURE:DNR) is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling on the Lake Torrens Iron-Oxide Copper Gold Uranium ("IOCG(U)") Project in South Australia. Dynamite can earn up to a 51% interest in the project from WCP Resources (ASX:WCP) through a combination of exploration expenditures and a fixed call option.

Drilling has commenced at the Titan Prospect using a rig capable of drilling both reverse circulation ("RC") pre-collars and diamond tails to combined depths in excess of 900m. This machine will drill RC pre-collars for the first three high priority holes and then commence diamond drilling the "tails". A second diamond rig is currently being mobilized to drill the remaining "tails". The drillholes have been designed to test gravity anomalies that are associated, but not coincident with magnetic anomalies within basement rocks from approximately 650 metres depth.

Drilling is also planned during this campaign at the Marathon South prospect located 25 km northeast of Olympic Dam, where strongly haematite-altered breccias were first intersected by Tasman Resources NL (ASX:TAS) in late 2005.

"We are drilling high quality IOCG(U) targets adjacent to Olympic Dam. Our partner on the Lake Torrens Project, WCP Resources, have the operational skills and regional knowledge to undertake discovery drilling programs and bring any future resources to account" states Dynamite Resources Chairman Stan Bharti.

Titan Prospect Background

Titan Prospect is a confirmed large iron-oxide, copper-gold-uranium mineralized system, approximately 30km north of Olympic Dam. It was first drilled by Western Mining Corporation immediately after the discovery of Olympic Dam, and followed up with further drilling by Tasman Resources. Best intersections to date include:

- BD 1: 334m at 0.1%Cu;

- TI 2: 154m at 0.08% Cu, 17ppb Au, 0.5ppm Ag, 40ppm U; and,

- TI 6: 47m at 0.30% Cu, 60ppb Au (inc. 5m at 1.14% Cu, 0.25ppm Au)

To date, only a very small part of the overall system (covering an area of approximately 20km2) has been tested, and the Company believes that there is good potential for intersections of much higher grades than previously measured.

Exploration Expenditure and Farm-in Arrangements

Dynamite can earn up to a 51% interest in the Lake Torrens Project from WCP Resources. WCP Resources has a joint venture with Tasman Resources Limited on the Lake Torrens Project. WCP Resources has the right to earn 65% of the Lake Torrens Project, by incurring expenditures of Australian Dollars ('AUD')6.5 million. Dynamite has agreed to fund the AUD6.5 million expenditure over a 5 year period, in exchange for 50% of WCP's interest in the Lake Torrens Project. Dynamite has a call option to increase its overall equity in the Lake Torrens Project to 51% by paying a pre-determined amount to WCP Resources. The transaction is subject to the completion of Formal Agreements which are expected to be concluded by 31 July 2007 or such other dates as agreed by Dynamite & WCP Resources.

Tau Mining Limited (UK) Update - Uranium Properties

Further to the previously announced acquisition of Tau Mining by Dynamite Resources, the Company has successfully completed one of the key milestones to conclude this transaction, namely its subsidiary, Tau Finance Inc. ("Finco"), has closed its previously announced private placement financing (the "Offering") of subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts"). The total offering was for 56,250,000 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.80 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $45 million. Dynamite intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to acquire Tau Mining Limited (UK) ("Tau Mining"), exploration expenditures on the Company's and Tau Mining's properties and for general corporate purposes, as more particularly described in the press release of the Company on June 14th, 2007.

Dynamite is in the process of preparing the offer documents for Tau shareholders and the meeting materials for a special meeting of Dynamite shareholders to be held on August 7, 2007.

Dynamite's Chairman, Stan Bharti, also stated that "We are very excited about the Tau Mining acquisition as it provides terrific access to uranium within the prolific Tien Shan Mineral Belt."
