Normabec Initiates Diamond Drilling on the Real de Catorce Property

ST-BRUNO, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Normabec Mining Resources Ltd. ("Normabec") (TSX VENTURE:NMB)(FRANKFURT:N6M), through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary Minera Real Bonanza S.A. de C.V. ("MRB"), is pleased to announce that it has initiated an 11,000 metres drilling program with two drill rigs at its Real de Catorce Property.

The drilling program consists of three distinct portions:

1. A portion of 6,000 meters will be completed along the southeastern extension of the Veta Madre structure at the 2720 metre level.

2. A 3,000 metre portion will be carried out along the same portion of the structure but from surface. Approximately 300 metres laterally and 400 metres vertically of untested Veta Madre structure will be explored with these two programs.

3. The surface drill will then be moved, or a third drill will be mobilized, on a productive portion of Veta Madre where Normabec's as well as former operators' sampling systematically returned high silver grades from surface and underground openings. The area that will be tested extends for 600 metres laterally (east-west) and 300 metres vertically. Normabec's personnel on site has estimated that less than 40 % of the vein was historically mined out in the first 100 meters vertically, and much less below.

The first drilling results are expected within one month from now.
