New Dimension Commences Ground Magnetic Survey at Puma Dorado Gold-Copper Project in Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2008) - New Dimension Resources Ltd. ("New Dimension" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NDR) has commenced a detailed ground magnetic survey at its Puma Dorado gold-copper project located in the Department of Ayacucho in southern Peru.

Known gold and copper mineralization on the property is hosted within tabular bodies of massive magnetite that outcrop over an area measuring approximately 1,200 metres long by 500 metres wide. The outcrops host locally strong pyrite and disseminated chalcopyrite with significant precious metal values ranging up to 3.23 g/t gold with 6.7% copper from rock chip samples. The property has never been drilled.

The Puma Dorado occurrence is believed to be of magmatic origin hosted within the large Querobamba intrusive complex. Where exposed, the bodies vary in thickness from 2 to 15 metres and occur mainly as tabular zones that form southerly inclined dip-slopes. The outcrops project under cover to the south, east and west. The purpose of the magnetic survey is to better delineate the extensions of these mineralized bodies for a future drill program.

Initial sampling of the tabular magnetite zones by the Company consisted of seven, one-to-three metre wide chip samples that returned values ranging from 0.5 to 3.23 g/t gold and 0.26 to 6.7% copper. Twelve follow-up chip samples from these zones averaged 0.92 g/t gold with four samples assaying over 1.0 g/t with a high of 2.4 g/t gold. Of these twelve samples, six exceeded 1% copper with values ranging from 1.07% to 5.5% copper.

Of potential significance for tonnage and grade are steeply-dipping dykes that are believed to be feeders to the main magnetite bodies. Three, one metre chip channels from a three-metre wide dyke near the northern end of the property reported gold values of 2.55 g/t, 4.23 g/t and 1.74 g/t with respective copper values of 5.1%, 9.4% and 2.5%. Another one-metre wide dyke exposure, located 100 metres to the south, assayed 3.29 g/t gold and 1.6% copper.

The ground magnetic survey is being conducted by a Lima-based geophysical company and will consist of at least eight lines positioned on a 200-metre spacing. The Company is also continuing additional detailed geological mapping and sampling and has commenced the permitting requirements necessary to conduct a preliminary drill program.

The Puma Dorado property is accessible by road and is situated proximal to several small communities in southwestern Peru that offer logistical support and infrastructure. Although there has been limited surface mining on the property by local informal miners, there is no evidence that any modern exploration activity has been conducted in the area.

Analytical services and assays are provided by ALS Chemex Laboratories in Lima. The Company maintains a quality control program consistent with industry standards.
