Inspiration Intersects 0.772% Ni Over 17.71m or 58.10ft With 1.200% Ni Over 7.64m or 25.06ft (True Width)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - Inspiration Mining Corporation (the "Corporation") (TSX:ISM)(FRANKFURT:OI8) is pleased to announce the results of the continuation of their diamond drilling program on its Langmuir Project, located in Langmuir Township south of Timmins, Ontario. The Langmuir Property consists of 69 unpatented contiguous mining claim units covering approximately 1090 hectares in the north-central portion of Langmuir Township, Porcupine Mining Division, and District of Cochrane, Ontario. The property is approximately 25 km southeast of Timmins, Ontario, and hosts the past producing Langmuir No.1 Mine, and majority of the past producing Langmuir No. 2 Mine.

Inspiration is continuing the drilling at the Langmuir Project - Langmuir No.1 Mine. The detail fill-in drill program is designed to complete the definition of the nickel bearing mineralization below the 300-foot mine level to a vertical depth of approximately 900 feet below surface.

The following assay results for drill holes L107-43 to L107-49 at the former Langmuir No.1 Mine have been received, compiled and condensed to the following:

Step out drill holes L107-43 and 44 are located approximately 100 feet south of previously released drill holes L107-41 and 42. Drill hole L107-44 intersected a large low-grade nickel mineralization 550 feet vertically below surface and may be the fault dragged southwest extension of the West Zone.

Drill holes L107-45 to L107-49 were drilled on mine Section 3250 North approximately 250 feet north of drill holes L107-43 and L107-44.

Drill hole L107-45 intersected the East Zone stope at 70.00m and L107-46 intersected the stope at 107.40m.

Drill Hole L107-47 intersected the Central Zone approximately 116.0 feet down dip of the 315 foot level mine stope, and a narrow zone east the East Zone stope. Drill holes L107-48 and L107-49 intersected the Central Zone approximately 200 feet and 332 feet down dip from the 315-foot mine level. It appears that these drill holes were below the down plunge side of the East Zone.

The nickel bearing sulphide mineralization, with estimations ranging from 1% to 20% fine-grained disseminatations up to massive 100% sulphides, is contained within serpentenized komatiitic ultramaftic extrusive flows with occasional spinifex texture.

The assaying technique used is the industry standard for base metal assaying, which uses nitric and hydrochloric acids that extracts nickel only from sulphide mineralization and not from nickel silicate minerals.

The assaying of split core samples was conducted by Swastika Laboratories, and included the insertion of blanks and standards. The Qualified Person in charge of the Langmuir Project and the person who prepared the technical data in this release is Kian Jensen, B.Sc., P.Geo. (Ont).
