VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2007 --Gemco Minerals Inc. (OTCBB: GMML)

The Board of Directors at Gemco Minerals Inc. ('the Company') is pleased to announce that their 'Notice of Work and Reclamation Program' outlining an extensive exploration program on the Burns Group Gold/Silver Property has been approved in its entirety by regulating authorities. The British Columbia Ministry of Mines permit includes the following:

--  Ten additional surface diamond drill holes on Mount Burns to follow up
    to the most significant self-potential geophysical anomalies at the Cohen-
    Galena showings
--  Trenching and geochemical sampling as follow up to several self-
    potential and soil geochemical anomalous areas
--  Extending and/or upgrading existing geo-grids of Mount Burns and Mount
    Nelson
--  49 line kilometers of self-potential geophysical surveying
--  1.2 kilometers trail upgrade, construction and maintenance
--  Prospecting and detailed mapping of property
--  Creating survey control on the property
    
This is in addition to the recently approved three-hole surface diamond drill hole program near Perkins Gulch, authorized earlier this year and in accordance with the 43-101 geologist report. The program was designed from, and builds on, an internal compilation of professional recommendations and work completed on the property since 2000 as well as the compilation of historical research located for this property.

Gemco is further excited with the recent announcement of its neighboring property for a $3 million exploration and drill program in the upcoming months. The map attached delineates the said property in yellow which surrounds Gemco's holdings in green, and marks the Bonanza Ledge discovery which has 60,000 proven ounces of gold.

Gemco Mineral's land holding currently encompass 12,686 acres (5134 hectares) of mineral tenure at the 'Burns Group Gold Property' of which, to date, more than 70% of the tenure is stated to be under-explored. The property is centrally located in the Nelson-Yanks Gold Belt, which is host to numerous historic lode gold mines and the Company anticipates positive results this season.
