Explor Starts Drilling Nelligan Nickel Property

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2007) - Explor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXS) is pleased to announce the completion of the geophysics and the start of Drilling on its Nelligan Nickel Property. The property consists of twenty-one (21) Mineral Claims situated in Nelligan Township in the Val-d'Or mining district, province of Quebec.

Covering an area of approximately 1198 hectares, the Nelligan Exploration Project is located in the eastern-central part of Nelligan Township approximately 20 km west of the town of Desmaraisville, Quebec. Excellent access is provided by a logging road that connects the Senneterre-Chibougamau highway to the property approximately 2.0 km off the highway.

The Nelligan Property will be explored for Nickel-Cobalt. Previous historical work includes trenching by the Canadian Nickel Company (circa 1960-1970). The series of trenches by INCO revealed the presence of Mafic and Ultramafic rocks with Nickel mineralization. Grab samples with up to 10% Ni and 0.6% cobalt were obtained. The Mag and Ground Time Domain EM Surveys have been completed. Six geophysical TDEM targets have been outlined and will be drilled. The targets are located on an east-west structural trend.

The property is located in a greenstone belt composed mainly of sequences of meta-volcanic and meta sedimentary rocks cut by faults and deformation zones that lie in a NE-SW direction. The Bachelor Lake Mining Camp is located nearby and is known for its precious metal and polymetallic potential. This property is located directly to the west of the Bachelor Lake Mine and Mill and the former Conigas Mine.
