Magnus International Resources, Inc.-Lugazi Gold Anomaly Extended and Additional Major Exploration Licence Added

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - Magnus International Resources, Inc. ("Magnus") ("the Company") (OTCBB:MGNU) is pleased to provide a progress update at the Lugazi property in south central Uganda. Through the acquisition of African Mineral Fields, Magnus is acquiring a 100% interest in the Lugazi project.

As previously announced, at Lugazi a geochemical survey has identified a 3km long gold-in-soil anomaly, open to the west, on the western side of this 261 km2 property. A detailed infill geochemical sampling program has now been completed and the results from 630 samples are expected within the next month.

A new exploration licence, covering an area of 470.86 km2, "Lugazi West" was granted this month, bringing the total area at this project to 731.86 km2 on two properties. The Company currently has an interest in 14 exploration licences at four project areas throughout southern and south-western Uganda, covering 1996 km2.

In addition, a fixed wing high resolution airborne geophysical survey, including magnetics and radiometrics, has been completed over the Lugazi property by Fugro Airborne Surveys. The total line kilometres flown at 200m line spacing was 3,718 km covering a total area of 574.5 km2.

This survey over the Lugazi licence, which is being funded by Magnus, is in conjunction with a country-wide airborne survey covering up to 80% of Uganda. This program, which commenced earlier this year, is part of the Republic of Uganda's mineral sector development program, being funded by the World Bank and the African Development Bank. The program, comprising both reconnaissance and high resolution magnetic and radiometric surveys will also include airborne EM over selected areas.

Magnus' CEO, Graham Taylor, commented, "We are highly encouraged by recent developments at the Lugazi project where we have increased our land position in anticipation of further gold discoveries. The Lugazi belt has been largely overlooked by the exploration community. With our initial gold-in-soil discovery last year, and with the newly acquired geophysical information, we believe that the region offers the potential for finding similar mineralized structures. Lugazi is one of four large gold exploration concessions that Magnus is acquiring through the acquisition of African Mineral Fields. We will be receiving results from the first quarter exploration programs and will continue to provide updates on all four properties as we receive these lab results and interpret them. In the near-term, we will be carrying out further exploration activities to guide us in delineating a number of targets for the upcoming drilling program. We expect to commence drilling at the first of these targets in the relatively near-term - by mid-2007".

The Lugazi project area is situated within a north-east trending elongate belt of Precambrian meta-sediments and intercalated mafic volcanics and intrusions. The sediments are part of the Buganda - Toro system comprising shales, phyllites, schists, quartzites and conglomerates. The mafic to ultramafic rocks form small lenticular intrusions within the licence area, but these increase in size and proportion towards the northeast of the belt. This Lugazi belt is sandwiched between large bodies of basement gneisses and later granitoid gneisses, suggesting an important link between fluid from these granites and structural controls within the sedimentary belt. The project is located in an area of poor rock exposure and is underlain by deep insitu and Tertiary laterites and duracrust capping on higher topographies.
