Inspiration Intersects Wide Nickel Mineralization

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - 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.2 Mine -- North Zone. The detail fill-in drill program is designed to complete the definition of the nickel bearing mineralization to the 100 metre level.

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

Drill holes LN07-93 to LN07-95, inclusively were drilled on the same section line. Drill Hole LN07-93 is approximately 16 metres down dip from previously released drill hole LN06-32, while drill holes LN07-94 and LN07-95 are approximately 25 metres and 52 metres down dip from LN07-93, respectively.

Drill holes LN07-96 and LN07-97 are located approximately 26 metres east of previously released drill hole LN05-13, and approximately 23 metres and 48 metres down dip from LN05-13, respectively.

Drill hole LN07-98 is located approximately 26.8 metres north and 14.5 metres east of previously released drill hole LN05-13 and represents the furthest northerly drill hole on the North Zone.

The following assay results for drill holes LN07-93 to LN07-98 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).

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