Geocom Announces Precious and Base Metal Drill Intercepts at La Carolina Project

BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Geocom Resources Inc. ("Geocom" or "The Company") (OTCBB: GOCM) is pleased to report on the progress of an extensive diamond-drilling program at its La Carolina Project in San Luis Province, Argentina. To date, 4,489 meters of a planned 6,000 meter program have been completed. Of 16 holes drilled so far, assay results have been received for 11 holes. These holes were designed to test a variety of targets throughout the property, including the La Luisa, Mogote, Olguin, La Illusion, El Corte, El Camino and La Virgen.

At La Luisa, DDH-Lat 3 intersected 338m averaging 0.24 g/t Au (the entire length of the hole). The hole was terminated at 338m in a quartz pyrite stockwork that averaged 0.4 g/t Au over 78m (from 260m to 338m), indicating that the gold grade increases with depth. Included in this section are several narrow higher-grade intersections including 3 g/t Au over 1m (from 260m to 261m) and 0.92 g/t Au over 3m (from 280m to 283m). With only one hole in this target the mineralization remains open in all directions.

Holes DDH-Lat 6 and DDH-Lat 21 were drilled in the Mogote target and intercepted long intervals of base-metal and gold mineralization. DDH-Lat 6 returned 401.3m of 0.14% Zn (the entire length of the hole) including 28m at 0.78% Zn and 0.23% Pb (from 227m to 255m). A second hole in this target, DDH-Lat 21, returned similar base metal grades but also contained 70m of 0.34 g/t Au (from 249m to 319m). The gold values are located below a trench that returned 1 g/t Au over 30m and a historical hole that returned 0.54 g/t Au over 60m including 5.7 g/t Au over 4m. The results suggest that the gold content decreases and base metal content increases with depth.

Of the remaining targets, Olguin (one hole) returned 0.3 g/t Au across 2m (from 140m to 142m) and La Ilusion (one hole) yielded no significant gold or base metal results. The targets El Corte (two holes), El Camino (one hole) and La Virgen (two holes) have assays pending at the laboratory.

John Hiner, President of Geocom Resources Inc., said, "Such long runs of continuous gold and base metal mineralization are encouraging. These drill results substantiate an extensive gold and base metal mineralized system on the La Carolina property. Further work will be required to define the base and precious metal potential of these targets. We are extremely pleased with the results to date."

Latin American Minerals Inc. ("LAT"), the project operator, can earn an undivided 75% interest in the project by making cash payments totaling US$125,000 and issuing a total of 225,000 common shares to Geocom and TNR Gold Corporation (each divided 50/50 between Geocom and TNR) and carrying out staged exploration programs over five years, which must aggregate US$1,000,000 to earn its interest.
