Explor Resources Inc.: Drill Program to Start Eastford Lake Gold Property

LA RONGE, SASKATCHEWAN--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2006) - Explor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXS) - Management is pleased to announce that a 3,000 metre drill program has been started on the Eastford Lake Gold Property. The property is situated in the Kerrs, Warden, Milligan Townships and the Rayner Lake area, south-east of Lake Abitibi, Ontario in the Timmins-Porcupine mining camp.

The Eastford Lake Property consists of 137 contiguous unpatented mining units for a total of 2,200 hectares contiguous with SAGE Gold Inc. property.

Geophysical surveys have identified six targets along a major fault-like structure running east-northeast through the central part of the property. The fault is coincident with the northern, or "up-ice" cut-off of a large gold and mercury in soil geochemical anomalies.

The drill was mobilized on April 10, 2006 and has started the first hole to test the interpreted bedrock source of the fragile, friable carbonatized quartz porphyry float and fuchsitic altered ultramafic float located within the north-west end of the gold/quartz boulder train previously discovered. Deep drift / overburden cover (up to 90m) made discovery and exploration of the fault like structure difficult.
