Magnus International Resources, Inc. Updates on Infill Sampling Results in Target Areas of The Huidong Property

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 17, 2006) - Magnus International Resources, Inc. ("Magnus") ("the Company") (OTCBB:MGNU) is pleased to provide the following update in relation to new infill sampling results at the Huidong Property, located to the northwest of and on trend with Southwestern Resources' Boka gold project.

Exploration Update

Dingjiaping Area

Road building work continues in the western portion of the concession to access the area of coincident artisan mine tunnels and strong soil gold (Au) geochemistry at Dingjiaping. The road has advanced well, with 5 km having been constructed to date, and is now accessing the target area at Dingjiaping. Results have indicated soil samples containing up to 973 ppb Au in discrete areas that have been identified for follow up investigation by mechanized trenching and road building. Results from this part of the program will be reported in a separate update note.

Huidong East

An aggressive in-fill soil sampling program comprising approximately 4500 samples, across areas of the Huidong concession already found to be of high interest based on the previous high and low density geochemical surveys, was completed in November, and analysis results are now being provided from the Vancouver analytical laboratory. The first installment of 2005 infill soil sample Au and multi-element analyses was received recently, and comprised 1227 soils from the eastern portion of the concession over an area referred to as Huidong East.

A strong Au-in soil anomaly has been defined that confirms the previous anomaly feature observed in pulverized soils, and sharpens it significantly due to the higher density 80m x 40m sample spacing employed in the infill soil sampling program.

Soil Au analysis results over the Huidong East anomaly include strong Au-in-soil concentrations up to 438 ppb Au in a well-constrained area of approximately 1.6 km2. The soil Au concentrations at Huidong East compare extremely well with the 20 ppb Au soil concentration levels used to define significant Au mineralization at the Boka deposit, approximately 14 km to the south of this Au feature at Huidong East.

Factor analysis completed on the soil data shows a clear element grouping among gold (Au), copper (Cu), and Arsenic (As), within the soil Au anomaly. Copper and Arsenic also are reported to occur in elevated concentrations in association with Au at Boka, and the same element association at Huidong East suggest a possible mineralization style similar to that observed at Boka.

Observed shear zones in road cuts in the Huidong East area containing pyrite, iron carbonates, and graphitic carbon strengthen the comparison. Sampling and analysis of these shear zones is underway.

Rocks in the Huidong East target area are exposed in some areas and covered by red soils up to 3 meters thick in other areas. The follow up investigation will first map the distribution of covered versus exposed areas, the geologic rock units, and identified mineralized and altered rocks and structural zones (fault zones and shears). Systematic sampling of available rocks and road cut exposures will proceed immediately as a part of this program.

Based on the degree of rock exposure and thickness of soils, additional follow up exploration at Huidong East will likely include several exploration options:

1. Additional infill soil sampling;

2. Shallow drilling using small rigs capable of penetrating to 30 meters depth;

3. Tunneling;

4. Core Drilling.

Follow up investigation at Huidong East is underway.

Magnus International Resources, Inc. is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties, focusing primarily on gold and copper properties in China. Magnus currently retains a potential 90% interest in two Sino-foreign gold joint venture exploration projects. The Huidong property is northwest of and on trend with Southwestern Resources' Boka gold project. The Mangshi project is located within the 40km Luxi Gold Belt in western Yunnan province.
