Important Extension to Copper-Zinc Mineralization Found by Abcourt at Aldermac Property

MONT-ST-HILAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Mr. Renaud Hinse, president and C.E.O. of Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ABI), is pleased to announce that an important extension to the copper-zinc mineralization has been found by Abcourt at the Aldermac property.

Hole AL08-14, drilled from north to south at -71o, cut from 354.08 m to 393.6 m, a mineralized zone which assayed 1.94% copper, 3.58% zinc, 0.58 g/t gold, 28.84 g/t silver and 0.024% cobalt, over 39.68 meters (130.15 feet). That includes from 354.08 m to 361.10 m, a 7.02-meter zinc - rich zone which assayed 0.78% Cu, 16.19% Zn, 0.69 g/t Au and 25.4 g/t Ag and from 365.60 m to 382.10 m, a 16.5-meter copper - rich zone which assayed 2.78% Cu, 0.61 Zn, 0.43 g/t Au and 38.59 g/t Ag. Hole AL08-14 intersected the main zone between the 8th and the 9th levels, west of the mined out area, outside the historical resources. It is too early to determine the true width of the zone as this intersection might indicate the presence of a northerly branch from the east-west main zone; however such a long intersection certainly represents an important addition to the resources potential of the property.

The assays were done at Techni-Lab S.G.B. inc., a qualified laboratory.

Abcourt Mines Inc. is an exploration and development company with strategically located properties in Northwestern Quebec, Canada.
