Pelangio Advised of Drill Results from Detour Gold's Drilling Program at Detour Lake, Ontario

(Detour Gold intersects 1.47 g/t over 65 metres in West Pit)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - Pelangio Mines Inc. (TSX:PLG) ("Pelangio" or the "Company") has been advised by Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) that it has released drill results from an additional 11 holes from its ongoing 50,000 metre drilling program at the Detour Lake property in northern Ontario. Results for the first 20 holes were released on April 11 and May 17, 2007. Pelangio has a 50% equity interest in Detour Gold (20 million shares). Detour Gold issued a press release today, the verbatim text of which follows:



"Detour Gold Continues to Extend Gold Mineralization Outside of the Current
Resource at its Detour Lake Property, Northern Ontario
(DG-07-38 intersects 1.47 g/t over 65 metres in West Pit)


June 11, 2007 - Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the drill results of an additional 11 holes from its ongoing 50,000 metre drilling program at its Detour Lake property in northern Ontario. The Company has four drill rigs operating at the site and has completed 124 holes totaling 45,065 metres as of June 10, 2007. Results for the first 20 holes were released on April 11 and May 17, 2007.

The assay results reported today further confirm the continuity of the gold mineralization along the known east-west 200 metre wide corridor extending from the West Pit to the Calcite Zone resource blocks (a distance of 2.5 kilometres). Results to date are expected to expand the current near-surface resource of 1.4 million ounces in the indicated category (20.0 million tonnes grading 2.14 g/t) and 2.0 million ounces of gold in the inferred category (35.4 million tonnes grading 1.80 g/t). The mineral resource is contained within two open pits (West Pit and Calcite Zone), based on a US$450 per ounce gold price, located in the area of the former Detour Lake mine, which produced 1.8 million ounces from 1983 to 1999.

Seven holes (DG-07-21, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39 and 51) were drilled within the unestimated (waste) portion of the US$450 pit shell (West Pit). Three holes (DG-07-24, 31 and 44) were drilled between the two US$450 pit shells (Gap Zone) and one hole (DG-07-23) was drilled within the Calcite Zone.



Significant gold intercepts (uncut) include:

West Pit
--------

- 1.47 g/t over 65.0 m in DG-07-38
- 2.23 g/t over 19.0 m and 1.78 g/t over 32.0 m in DG-07-21
- 5.05 g/t over 8.0 m in DG-07-36
- 2.46 g/t over 20.0 m in DG-07-51
- 2.38 g/t over 8.0 m and 3.53 g/t over 9.5 m in DG-07-35

Gap Zone
--------

- 5.53 g/t over 13.0 m, 5.83 g/t over 5 m, 79.92 g/t over 9 m, and 2.77 g/t
over 18.0 m in DG-07-44
- 15.27 g/t over 7.0 m and 2.36 g/t over 22.0 m in DG-07-24

Calcite Zone
------------

- 2.59 g/t over 19.0 m in DG-07-23


The mineralized corridor is traceable over 2.5 kilometres and remains open west of the Calcite Zone. Gold mineralization within the corridor typically consists of multiple, subvertical, five to 25 metres wide zones grading between 1.0 to 3.0 g/t gold. Higher grade gold mineralization is generally characterized by potassic alteration, and an increased percentage of sulphide minerals and quartz veining.

Recent regional geological work also indicates that the mineralized corridor is open to the east of the West Pit along the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone (SLDZ) but further south of the main east-west trend. This area has never been tested by drilling. The corridor is splaying at depth from the SLDZ and moves discordantly within an assemblage of massive and pillowed volcanic flows. The SLDZ shows strong local shearing and hydrothermal alteration characterized by a silicified and mineralized marker horizon (CMH). This zone straddles along a major contact with volcaniclastic and ultramafic rocks.

The primary objective of the Phase I drilling program (50,000 metres) is to expand beyond the current near-surface resource and convert a large portion of the inferred resources to the indicated category with a 40 metre east-west and 80 metre north-south grid. The drilling is focusing between surface to 350 metres over a strike length of 1.6 kilometres, covering such areas as the Gap and Calcite Zones that had very limited drilling in the past.

The current program is expected to be completed at the end of this month. The Company plans to start a feasibility study next month and update the current mineral resource in September 2007. Details on the current mineral resource are available in the Detour Lake Project December 2006 Technical Report posted on the Company's website or on SEDAR.

Complete tables of results, surface and longitudinal plans and cross-sections for the Detour Lake deposit are posted on the Company's website www.detourgold.com /Projects/Detour Lake or on the home page "Explore Detour Lake".

Detour Gold's exploration program is being managed by Project Manager, Mr. Roger Aubertin, P.Eng., a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Aubertin has verified and approved the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information.

Samples are prepared and assayed at SGS Minerals Services in Don Mills, Ontario, Canada. Analysis for gold is done on sawn half core samples using fire assay (AA finish). Samples with higher grade gold (greater than 5 g/t) are re-assayed using the pulp and metallics procedures. Standard reference materials, blank and field duplicate samples are inserted prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the assay data. For additional information on Quality Assurance and Quality Control, refer to the press release dated April 11, 2007.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

This news release uses the terms 'indicated' and 'inferred' resources. Detour Gold advises investors that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, 'inferred resources' have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies except for Preliminary Assessment as defined under 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable."
