TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - Inspiration Mining Corporation (TSX:ISM) (FRANKFURT:OI8) (the "Corporation") 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.2 Mine - North Zone. The detail fill-in drill program is designed to complete the definition of the nickel bearing mineralization below the 100 metre level.

The following table indicates the drill information for the North Zone drill holes:

Drill holes LN07-99 to LN07-101, inclusively were drilled at the same location and approximately 25 metres east of previously released drill holes LN06-33 and LN06-34.

Drill Hole LN07-99 is approximately 21 metres down dip of previously released drill hole LN06-34 with the nickel mineralization ranging from 80 metres to 140 metres below surface.

Drill Hole LN07-100 is approximately 36 metres down dip from LN07-99 with the nickel mineralization ranging from 120 metres to 210 metres below surface while LN07-101 is approximately 38 metres down dip from LN07-100 with the nickel mineralization ranging from 142 metres to 227 metres below surface.


The following assay results for drill holes LN07-99 to LN07-101 at the Langmuir No.2 Mine - North Zone have been received, compiled and condensed to the following:

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).
