Normabec Intercepts Numerous Gold Values in Preliminary Drilling Results on Pitt Gold

ST-BRUNO, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 26, 2007) - Normabec Mining Resources Limited "NORMABEC" (TSX:NMB) is pleased to announce the first set of results from the 2007 drilling program from its Pitt Gold property located along the Porcupine-Destor Break, some 35 km north of Rouyn-Noranda, Abitibi. Two diamond drill rigs are presently working on the property.

Partial results from the first four holes demonstrate that gold is widespread in the sector drilled indicating a strong mineralizing system. With large volume of new data pouring in, Normabec continues to re-assess its interpretation of the mineralization model. As drilling progresses, it becomes increasingly obvious that the complexity of the mineralized structures will require 3D modelling to properly interpret the geometry of the gold bearing system.

Holes PG2006-01a and PG2006-01b are wedges out of hole PG2006-01 drilled last year and completed this year. Holes PG2007-01 and PG2007-02 are located approximately 110 metres to the east and up dip of PG2006-01. The table below shows all results around 3 g/t Au and over received so far.

586.80 to 588.00 3.63 g/t Au over 1.20 m
606.35 to 607.65 2.63 g/t Au over 1.30 m

PG2007-01 380.00 to 381.00 11.52 g/t Au over 1.00m

incl 626.00 to 629.00 5.97 g/t Au over 3.00 m
650.00 to 651.00 12.35 g/t Au over 1.00 m
695.00 to 696.00 16.08 g/t Au over 1.00 m
709.00 to 710.00 8.09 g/t Au over 1.00 m

PG2007-02 543.70 to 544.70 2.95 g/t Au over 1.00 m
549.77 to 550.80 3.85 g/t Au over 1.03 m
687.70 to 688.70 3.46 g/t Au over 1.00 m

Samples are being prepared and assayed at Laboratoire Expert of Rouyn-Noranda. Normabec has implemented a QAQC program which includes systematic use of standards, blanks and duplicates. Values above 1 g/t Au are systematically re-assayed.

The gold on this property is generally related to zones of quartz stockwork and silicic-potassic alteration containing between 2 to 10% of disseminated pyrite and traces of chalcopyrite. All rock types, north and south of the Porcupine-Destor Break, can host mineralized structures although intermediate volcanics and QFP appear to be favoured in term of continuity.

The 2007 drilling program is being carried out under the supervision of Mr. Pierre O'Dowd, geologist and Qualified Person as per National Instrument 43-101 (OGQ #668).

NORMABEC can earn a 60 % interest of the property from partners SOQUEM INC. and GeoNova Exploration inc. by completing 15,000 meters of drilling before June 30, 2007 and an additional 20 % by investing a further $500,000 no later than June 30, 2008. The proposed expenditures should enable NORMABEC not only to complete the acquisition of this 60% interest but also to earn an additional 20% interest.

SOQUEM is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Societe generale de financement du Quebec (SGF). The mission of the SGF, an industrial and financial holding, is to undertake economic development projects, in the industrial sector, in cooperation with partners and in compliance with the economic development policies of the Quebec government.
