First Narrows Reports Final Drill Results From Resource Delineation Program at Chester

Results Are From Westerly Step-Out Drill Holes of Up to 112 Meters, and Include Values of Up to 9.5% Copper Over 3.1 Meters (10.2 ft.) in Hole 191 and 3.13% Copper Over 9.3 Meters (30.5 ft.) in Hole 193

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - First Narrows Resources Corp. (TSX-V: UNO) (PINKSHEETS: FNRWF) ("First Narrows" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the latest analytical results of the delineation drilling program recently completed on the Chester Copper-Polymetallic Feeder Deposit. Analytical results of the 2006-2007 delineation drill holes will be included in an initial mineral resource estimation being prepared by an independent geological consultant in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101").

The results detailed below are from step-out drill holes that extend the Feeder Deposit's stringer mineralization for up to 112 meters down dip to the west. High-grade indium values (139.5 g/t) are associated with very high grade copper mineralization of 9.50% Cu over 3.1 meters (10.2 ft) in hole C-07-191.

QA/QC

Quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) of the Chester NI 43-101 qualifying mineral resource estimate drilling, analytical, and surveying programs are being monitored by independent consultants Mr. Robert Sim, P.Geo. and Mr. Bruce Davis. Mr. Earnest Brooks, P.Geo., is the Company's Qualified Person on the Chester Project.

The Chester resource estimate QA/QC program is set up to validate the data resulting from the drilling program. The analytical QA/QC program consists of the use of three types of "check" samples: standards, blanks, and duplicates. These check samples are for lab accuracy, contamination, and repeatability. The Company has also established standard practices that commence prior to drilling, and follow through to tasks at the drill rig, at the core logging facility, and finally at the sampling facility. It is at the sampling stage that the check samples are randomly inserted into the sequence of core samples. Ten (10) to fifteen (15) percent of all samples sent for analysis are QA/QC samples. Sample analysis is being performed by Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario. Samples are analyzed on a Varian Vista Pro ICP for Cu, Pb, Zn, and Ag using a method to which Activation Laboratories is accredited (ISO 17025 and CAN-P1579) by the Standards Council of Canada. Certified Canmet and OREAS Reference Standards are used as controls.

About the Chester Feeder Deposit

The Chester Feeder Deposit is an east-west trending, gently west plunging, and cigar-shaped mineralized structure within an alteration zone that is approximately 75 meters (246 ft.) or more in thickness and greater than 200 meters (656 ft.) in width. It extends west of the current area of drilling for more than 600 meters (2,625 ft.). At the east end, it lies close to the surface and at its known western extent it is approximately 400 meters (1,322 ft.) below the surface. The targets of the current resource estimate drilling program are one to three (or more) stacked, gently westerly inclined, and northerly striking, sheet-like zones of higher-grade mineralization of variable thicknesses that are within the cigar-shaped feeder structure.

The Chester property is located in the southern part of the Bathurst Mining Camp approximately 53 kilometers (kms) west of Miramichi City, and 72 kms southwest of the city of Bathurst, New Brunswick.
