TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 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.

Drill hole L107-50 located a higher nickel mineralization approximately 14.6 metres or 48 feet east of the East Zone. The underground development was intersected at 101.05m or 331.53 feet.

Drill holes L107-51 and 52 were drilled from the same location approximately 50 feet north of L107-50. The mineralization in L107-51 is near the 315-foot mine level and approximately 12 metres or 40 feet east of the underground development. Drill hole L107-52 is approximately midway between L107-51 and previously released L107-25 at a vertical depth of approximately 135 metres or 440 feet.

Drill hole L107-53 was drilled on the same mine section as L107-50 and between previously released drill holes L106-10 and L106-11. The main nickel mineralization is approximately 88 metres or 287 feet down dip from the 315-foot level East Zone.

Drill holes L107-54 and L107-55 were located 50 feet north of previously released L107-26 to L107-28 and L107-40. It appears that these holes were above the plunge of the nickel mineralization.

Drill holes L107-56 and L107-57 were drilled from the same location and between previously released drill holes L107-24 and L107-25 (Section 3600N) approximately 50 feet south and L107-40 (Section 3700N) approximately 50 feet north. Drill hole L107-56 failed to intersect the main nickel mineralization due to numerous large felsic dykes. The main nickel mineralization in L107-57 is located approximately 37 metres or 122 feet down dip from L107-56.

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).
