Montoro Engages Survey Contractor-Targeting Remobilized Uranium at Elliot Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2007) - International Montoro Resources Inc. ("Montoro" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:IMT)(FRANKFURT:O4T) today announced that it has engaged Geotech Ltd. of Aurora, Ontario to conduct an airborne "VTEM" electromagnetic survey this month. The survey will be flown in conjunction with Pele Mountain Resources Inc. and Verbina Ventures Inc. adjoining properties.

The resulting geophysical data will be analyzed for conductors, representing possible sulphide or graphite zones that may represent reductants capable of concentrating remobilized uranium. These conductive targets will then be drill-tested.

During a recent drill program International Montoro intersected a radioactive hydrothermally altered heterolithic breccia unit at the unconformity between the Archean basement rocks and the overlying Proterozoic sediments at Elliot Lake. On an adjacent property Pele Mountain Resources intersected hydrothermal uranium mineralization at a similar stratigraphic level. This is considered to be important because it shows that hydrothermal fluids possibly carrying uranium moved through the rocks near the unconformity. If these fluids came in contact with a reductant such as graphite or sulphides, which are known to be present in the basement rocks in the immediate area, there is a possibility that a high grade unconformity-hosted uranium deposit could exist on both Montoro's and adjacent properties. Montoro is compiling assay results for those drill holes that intersected the breccia unit.

This press release has been reviewed and approved by Donald Hawke, M.Sc. P.Geo., and independent Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Hawke has been supervising the current Phase One exploration and drilling program on Montoro's Elliot Lake property.
