Inspiration Intersects 1.054% Ni Over 13.36m or 43.83ft With 13.650% Ni Over 0.35m or 1.15ft (True Width)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 24, 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 table indicates the drill information for the Langmuir No. 1

Drill holes L107-29 and L107-30 were drilled at the same location approximately 100 feet south and approximately 143 feet west of previously released drill holes L107-22 and L107-23, which represent the furthest south drill holes by Inspiration to date.

Drill hole L107-31 was drilled at the same location as previously released L106-10 to L106-12 and was designed to confirm the existence of a fault displacement block of the East Zone above L106-10 and to confirm previously released drill hole L105-6 that was drilled with BQ core size.

The strike length of the East Zone with above drilling results by Inspiration has extended the length to approximately 525 feet.

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).

The TSX has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
