MPAC Industries Corporation: Corporate Update-Coal Refining Plant

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 25, 2007) - MPAC Industries Corp. (the "Company" or "MPAC") (TSX VENTURE:MPN) wishes to provide the following update to its activities in Turkey since the last News Release of March 26, 2007.

The Coal Refining Plant (the "Plant") located at Tokat / Zile coal mine (the "Coal Mine") is progressing substantially in accordance with the previously announced plans. The weather conditions in north central Turkey were causing some construction delays as the ground conditions on the Plant site were making it difficult for the larger equipment to move about the site.

As indicated previously, MPAC's Business Plan calls for the continuous testing and upgrading / refinement of the production circuit during the ramp-up phase leading to full production. This is to ensure maximum yield and refinement of the input coal from the Coal Mine. The Company has availed itself of the time afforded during these delays by addressing various specific areas of the circuit that would have required attention during the ramp-up period in any event.

The Company has taken receipt of the first of a series of tailings ponds and installation of this first tailings pond is currently underway. The excavations required for the entire pond system have not been completed, however, the local engineers have performed the final topography planning for the entire system. It is anticipated that the additional ponds will be installed in conjunction with the planned increases in production. Originally, this excavation work was slated to occur after the initial testing, however the Company has commenced attending to the excavation work at this time in order to compress the time-line from testing to the ramp-up phase.

In addition, as production increases, the Company would have had to request an increase in the production of crushed coal from the mine owner in accordance with MPAC's specifications as called for in the Definitive Agreement. For the purposes of the initial testing phase, the mine owner together with MPAC had intended to utilize the services of a smaller local crushing contractor. However, in order to ramp up the production more expeditiously from the initial testing phase, MPAC and the mine owner have identified, and the mine owner is in the process of engaging, another more experienced contractor with larger and more efficient crushing equipment to deliver the required quantities of crushed coal to the Company's identified specifications. Testing of this contractor's crusher throughput and particle size distribution is scheduled to take place in Ankara and, once successfully tested, the crushing equipment will be moved to the Plant site.

As the weather and ground conditions continue to improve, it remains the Company's goal to test a significant quantity of coal removed from the Coal Mine and attend to whatever outstanding issues that may come to light during testing and complete any peripheral modifications required in order for the Company to begin production according to the Business Plan.

The Company's attention to the future operations of the production circuit should make up for some, if not all of this time in ramping-up the production after the initial testing period.

This news release contains forward-looking statements, which are based on MPAC Industries' current internal expectations, estimates, projections, assumptions and beliefs, which may prove to be incorrect. The forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performances and undue reliance should not be placed on them. Actual results may differ materially as a result of any number of factors and uncertainties, many of which factors are beyond the Company's control. MPAC Industries Corporation undertakes no obligation to revise any forward-looking statements except as required by applicable securities laws.
