Mustang Minerals Corp.: Fox Property Acquisition Announcement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - Mustang Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MUM)(FRANKFURT:NJF) today announced it has purchased the mineral rights to mining claim FOX for $50,000 and the issuance of 50,000 common shares of the Company subject to regulatory approvals. The Vendor will retain a 2.5% net smelter royalty interest in the property. Mustang has the right to buy down the royalty to 1% for $1.25 million. The mining claim consists of 256 hectares located in the Rice Lake Greenstone Belt of southeastern Manitoba, in the Bissett area.

A sample of one of the historical trenches on the property, taken by Mustang personnel, returned an assay value of 0.7% nickel, 0.5% copper, 0.76 g/t platinum and 0.31 g/t palladium. Mineralization was contained in a ultramafic rock unit. Historical drilling in the trenched area has outlined a well mineralized ultramafic sill or gabbroic unit. Records for those drill holes in the trenched area are recorded in the Province of Manitoba literature as containing high grade nickel intervals up to 5.2%. Further compilation work, airborne geophysics and ground work will be required to confirm the nickel potential of the area.

The FOX property is located 135 kilometers from and connected by road with Mustang's Maskwa nickel copper deposit which is the subject of a pre-feasibility study by Mustang.

Assays were completed at Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario using conventional assay techniques.

Carey Galeschuk, P.Geo, the VP Exploration of Mustang, is the Qualified Person for purposes of NI 43-101 and is responsible for the contents of this release.
