Grande Portage Announces Drilling Program Underway

26 New Mineral Claims Staked Adding 12,300 Hectares

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 28, 2006) - Grande Portage Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GPG) ("Grande Portage" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has re-mobilized drill crews from Westcore Drilling to complete a staged step out drilling program at the Merry Widow open pit, northern Vancouver Island.

The drill program is designed to test the lateral and depth extension of the massive sulphide and skarn copper-gold mineralization identified during the summer drill program. The Company is currently drill testing the Raven Zone (Coppery Knob showing) which is located approximately 100 meters northeast of the Merry widow open pit. Upon competition of drilling at the Raven Zone, the Company will, weather permitting, drill the Marten Zone located 250 meters south of the open pit.

To date, drilling proximal to the Coppery Knob showing has intersected various zones of semi massive to massive sulphide mineralization and zones of massive magnetite mineralization. All core is presently being reviewed, logged, photologged, and split for analyses. The core samples will be delivered to ALS Chemex Labs in North Vancouver for analysis.

The Company also reports that it has acquired, by staking, 26 new mineral claims adjoining the Merry Widow Property to the south. The new claims called the SE 1-25 encompass 12,329.74 hectares and were acquired to cover coincidental magnetic and nickel-cobalt stream sediment anomalies identified from this past summer's helicopter airborne surveys and ground exploration program. The acquisition of the new claims increases the Company's land position at the Merry Widow projects to 35,870 hectares.

Warren Robb, P. Geo., and George Nicholson, P. Geo., are the qualified persons for this project, and have reviewed and verified the contents of this news release.
