Navasota Has Commenced Drilling on Its Bauxite Project, Republic of Guinea, West Africa

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - Navasota Resources Ltd. ("Navasota") (TSX VENTURE:NAV) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on the AMIG project in the Boke Bauxite Belt, in northwestern Guinea, West Africa. Navasota has the right to earn a 100% interest in the AMIG permit which covers 1,064 square kilometres in the prefectures of Telemele and Gaoual. Navasota has retained RSG Global Consulting of Perth, Australia to manage the program and has contracted West African Drilling Services ("WADS") to conduct aircore drill testing of the bauxite plateaus.

RSG Global Consulting has recommended a first pass aircore drilling program at 300 to 600 metre spacing over plateaus identified by a spectral and topographic analysis of Aster satellite imagery. That study has ranked various targets based on interpreted geomorphology, with residual bauxite plateaus ranking highest. Drilling will consist of shallow holes, 10-20 metres in depth, with samples collected at 1-metre intervals downhole and logged.

The mineral exploration permits are situated in the "Boke bauxite belt" of northwestern Guinea. The Boke bauxite belt hosts the world's largest and highest quality bauxite deposits with grades of 40% to 60% aluminium oxide.

The permit area is located in a "very good neighbourhood" being directly surrounded by several of the world's major bauxite miners. Three refineries have been proposed for construction in the Boke belt in the next five years, all of which would be within close proximity to the AMIG permit area. As well, an existing railway line is located approximately 16 kilometres from the site. This line is apparently commercially available and runs an additional 135 kilometres to the port of Kamsar.
