Far West Mining Provides Update on Drilling at the Georgetown Silver-Lead-Zinc Project in Queensland, Australia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2007) - Far West Mining Ltd. (TSX:FWM) is pleased to report that the planned 5000m drill program at the Georgetown silver-lead-zinc project is progressing well. Since August 4, 2007, 1300m of drilling has been completed testing the first of five buried geophysical targets.

Far West Mining, in partnership with BHP Billiton, is exploring an extensive land package in the Georgetown region of northern Queensland for Broken Hill Type ("BHT") silver-lead-zinc deposits.

The Georgetown province hosts a number of small BHT occurrences at surface to the north of the Project's land holdings. Towards the south, the prospective rocks dip under cover below a sequence of younger sandstones and can be traced into the JV's properties using geophysical surveys. Drilling to date has confirmed the presence of potential BHT host rocks below the overlying cover sequence which varies from 100m to 130m as predicted from the geophysical data.

Drilling will continue until the start of the rainy season which usually begins in late October or early November and continues through to April or May.

Due to the time required for sample preparation and limited lab availability, analytical results from the Georgetown Project are not expected until sometime in the fourth quarter.

Far West can earn a 70% interest (subject to certain back-in rights by BHP Billiton) in the Georgetown project by spending US $2,000,000 on exploration (including airborne and ground geophysical surveying) by October 2008.

All statements in this release, other than statements of historical fact, that address future production, reserve potential, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects to occur, are forward looking statements. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions.

The Company does not assume any obligation to update or revise its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

This news release uses the terms "inferred resources", "indicated resources", "measured resources", and "mineral resources". The Company advises investors that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian securities regulations (under National Instrument 43-101 "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects"), the US Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these terms. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, "inferred resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies except for a Preliminary Assessment as defined under National Instrument 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.
