Kettle River Resources Ltd.: Gold-Silver Epithermal Discovery on Minnie Moore

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2007) - Kettle River Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KRR) is encouraged by the outcome of the ongoing excavator trenching program on its 100% owned Phoenix and Bluebell properties in the Greenwood Area. To date, 309 lineal meters of trenching has been completed in 9 trenches, at the Minnie Moore and Homestake showings. 112 representative chip samples have been collected from the excavator trenches, and have been submitted to Acme Analytical Laboratory in Vancouver, for analysis.

As previously released (NR July 24, 2007), initial surface grab samples from the Minnie Moore showing returned values as high as 3.3 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold and 2,027 g/t silver, plus 2,459 parts per million ("ppm") zinc and 1,447 ppm lead. Follow-up sampling confirmed the high silver values, with results to 1,116 g/t silver, 1.7 g/t gold plus 1,084 ppm copper, 1,610 ppm lead and 3,747 ppm zinc.

The Minnie Moore showing is a limestone-hosted epithermal siliceous breccia zone that was discovered during the Company's 2007 spring-summer prospecting program. It is a new discovery that is untested by any previous trenching or drilling.

Trenching is ongoing elsewhere on the property, and will test two additional targets resulting from the 2007 work program. An area of anomalous gold in rock samples two kilometers north of the Phoenix mine will be tested, as well as an area of anomalous gold and copper in soils on the Snowshoe grid.

A fall drill program is planned and a contract has been signed with Beaupre Drilling of Princeton.

Linda Caron, MSc, PEng, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who is supervising the 2007 work program, and who has reviewed and approved the content of this news release.
