Noront Resources Ltd.: Summer Program Commences at Windfall Lake

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 29, 2005) - Noront Resources Ltd. (Noront) (TSX VENTURE:NOT) advises that its summer exploration program has commenced on its wholly owned Windfall Lake gold project located in Urban Township, Quebec.

Stripping and geological mapping is being carried out in the 800 meter x 800 meter area where significant gold mineralization was previously discovered in several diamond drill holes with a view to the possible extraction of a large surface bulk sample for additional analysis. Please see the press releases on the Company's web site for previous diamond drill results www.norontresources.com. Where mineralized zones are encountered in the extensive surface stripping program, diamond saw cuts will be placed across their width and samples taken and sent to independent laboratories for gold analysis. Assay results will be made available as they are received. Further diamond drilling is expected to commence latter this summer.

Also later this summer deep penetrating geophysical surveying will be carried out to facilitate interpretation of the existing gold zones and to outline targets possibly representing extensions of the known gold mineralization outside the presently drilled areas. As well 3D modelling of the drill hole data is currently underway utilizing GEMCOM computer software.

The above programs are under the supervision of John Harvey, P.Eng. the Company's qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.

Noront is a Tier 2 junior resource company on the TSX Venture Exchange, trading symbol NOT, with 46,341,741 shares issued to date.
