Northern Abitibi Mining Corp.: Down Hole Geophysical Survey to Commence at the Taylor Brook Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-PGE Property in Newfoundland

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 21, 2008) - Northern Abitibi Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NAI) ("Northern Abitibi") is pleased to announce that Eastern Geophysics Limited have been retained to complete down hole geophysical surveying at the Taylor Brook Property in Newfoundland.

Five drill holes at Taylor Brook will be surveyed by the Crone PEM (pulse electromagnetic) system. The Crone PEM survey has assisted in the discovery and definition of numerous ore-bodies around the world and the technique will be used at Taylor Brook to identify subsurface conductors surrounding the high grade Layden showing and within a portion of the mafic-ultramafic intrusive complex. The down hole geophysical survey is scheduled to commence early next week.

Exploration permits for a second round of drilling at Taylor Brook have been received. Pending the results of the Crone PEM survey a 1000 meter drill program will be planned to drill test geophysical anomalies, including the large airborne conductors that surround the Layden showing, as well as the margins of the host mafic-ultramafic complex.
