Patricia Mining Corp. Plans for Mill Start Up During the Week of August 27, 2006 at the Island Gold Joint Venture

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 23, 2006) - Patricia Mining Corp. (Patricia) (TSX VENTURE:PAT) is pleased to announce that the start up of the refurbished 650 tonne per day mill at the Island Gold Project located near Wawa, Ontario is now targeted for the week of August 27th, 2006.

The start up was originally planed for late July 2006 and was delayed by late shipments of key components by third party suppliers. All key components have now arrived onsite and are being installed. There is a newly formed mill team on site ready for start up. The entire Island Gold mine team is making great strides towards making Patricia Mining Corp. the newest Canadian gold producer.

The management of Patricia Mining Corp. thanks our shareholders for their patience as we bring the Island Gold Project to fruition.
