Entourage Mining Ltd. Black Warrior Progress Report
from Mineral Ridge Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 24, 2005) - Entourage
Mining Ltd. (OTCBB:ETGMF) -

Mr. Greg Kennedy reports that Entourage Mining Ltd. (the "Company") has
identified 7 initial drill targets on the Black Warrior Gold/Silver
Project (BW Project) situated in Esmeralda County, Nevada and an
application for drill permits has been made. The Company's initial drill
program will focus on four main targets including the area of the Black
Warrior pit from which 1595.46 ounces of silver previously were
extracted from 24.175 dry tons of ore. Three drill holes are also
planned for the North Vein, situated 579m northwest of the BW pit, where
grab samples assaying up to 4.52 g/t of gold were collected in a 2004

All work on the BW Project is under the supervision of James A. Turner,
P Geo and a National Instrument 43-101 "qualified person". Mr. Turner
has prepared a NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the project; the
report can be viewed under the Company's profile on sedar.com. As well,
Mr. Turner reports that a comprehensive Controlled-Source
Audio-Frequency Magneto-Telluric (CSAMT) survey of the Company's BW
Project commenced on February 18, 2005. The CSAMT survey is being
conducted by Zonge Geosciences Inc. of Sparks, Nevada and it is
anticipated that up to 25 line kilometers of survey will be completed.

CSAMT is a frequency domain electromagnetic method which uses an
artificial signal source which provides a stable signal, resulting in
higher-precision and faster measurements than are usually obtainable
with natural-source measurements in the same spectral band. The method
has been used for mapping resistive, dyke-like silicified zones likely
to host gold mineralization and has been successfully used in
exploration for massive sulfides and precious metals particularly to
identify possible deep structures.

The BW Project is situated on Mineral Ridge in Nevada's prolific gold
and silver producing Walker Lane Trend where more than 20 million ounces
of gold historically have been produced. The Company continues to stake
additional ground in the pediment area off the main claim block.

The BW Project is a low-sulfidation, vein hosted system with potential
for discovery of bulk-tonnage Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn minerlaization with
high-grade Ag-Au veins and deep sediment hosted gold mineralization. The
area has been described as a core complex with quartz veins and pods
occupying the detachment faults. Additional information will be
disseminated as it becomes available.
