Melkior Flies 1700 Km Megatem East of McFauld's

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Melkior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MKR) has completed an airborne time-domain electromagnetic and magnetometer survey over its claims located east of McFauld's Lake in the James Bay region of Ontario. A total of 1700 line kilometres were surveyed using the Fugro MEGATEM system. Melkior selected Fugro Airborne Surveys Corp. and MEGATEM due to Fugro's extensive worldwide experience surveying for nickel and base metals with many years of experience at target selection. MEGATEM is specifically suited for locating large massive sulphide bodies at depths of several hundred metres. Melkior anticipates that potentially economic targets in this area must be of considerable size hence MEGATEM is the ideal airborne system.

Melkior has agreed to acquire the claims to cover a strong regional gravity anomaly adjacent to the Noront "Ring of Fire" (NR March 27, 2008). From worldwide experience it is known that important nickel mining camps are typically located on or adjacent to regional gravity features caused by heavy geological units that can be indicative of a mafic/ultramafic body which could be the central intrusive source of nickel/copper mineralization.

The results of the MEGATEM survey are expected within six weeks. If massive sulphide targets are detected, these will be followed up by detailed ground geophysics in preparation for drilling, if warranted.
