Inspiration Intersects 1.191% Ni Over 3.85m or 12.63ft and Massive Sulphides with 8.340% Ni Over 0.24m or 0.79ft (True Width)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 9, 2007) - Inspiration Mining Corporation (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: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 L107-22 to L107-25 at the former Langmuir No.1 Mine have been received, compiled and condensed to the following:

Drill holes L107-22 and L107-23 are located approximately 100 feet east of previously released drill holes L106-13 and L106-14 and approximately 50 feet south and 170 feet east of previously released drill holes L106-20 and L106-21. The nickel mineralization in L107-22 and L107-23 are located approximately 390 feet and 532 feet down dip from the 315 foot mine level, respectively.

Drill holes L107-24 and L107-25 are located approximately 300 feet north and 100 feet east of L107-22 and L107-23 and 100 feet east of previously release drill hole L106-16 and the nickel mineralization is located approximately 82 feet and 173 feet down dip from L106-16. The mineralization is offset due to a fault.

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).
