Exeter Saddened by the Passing of Paul MacNeill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - Exeter Resource Corporation ("Exeter" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:XRC)(AMEX:XRA)(FRANKFURT:EXB) -

The Board of Directors, management and staff of Exeter are greatly saddened by the death of Mr. Paul MacNeill on December 9, 2007. Paul served as a director of Exeter from its listing in 2003 providing valuable counsel on the strategic direction and governance of the Company. His availability to Exeter was total, a major benefit for management, given the growing pains of a rapidly emerging junior resource company. His firm, MacNeill Law, provided legal services to Exeter giving Paul further insight into our operations.

Mr. Yale Simpson, Exeter Chairman, commented, "Paul was a true friend to Exeter and an invaluable board member. He had an amazing intellect, an uncanny sense of perspective and his sense of humour was legendary.

"On behalf of us all at Exeter and the resource industry as a whole, I pass on my heartfelt sympathy to Paul's wife Debra and his two boys David and Daniel. We will miss Paul greatly."
