TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 13, 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 assay results for drill holes L107-26 to L107-28 at the former Langmuir No.1 Mine have been received, compiled and condensed to the following:

Drill holes L107-26 to L107-28 completed from the same setup are located approximately 180 feet north and 310 feet east of the most northerly portion of the 315 foot level of the underground development and approximately 100 feet north and 150 feet west of previously release drill holes L107-24 and L107-25.

Drill holes L107-26 and L107-27 failed to intersect nickel mineralization due to a fault, which change the location of the down plunge mineralization of the East Zone. The mineralization is characterized by disseminated, bleb and net textured nickel bearing sulphides.

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).
