(Detour Gold intersects 9.69 g/t over 24 metres in Gap Zone)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2007) - Pelangio Mines Inc. (TSX:PLG) ("Pelangio" or the "Company") has been advised by Detour Gold Corporation that it has released drill results from an additional 15 holes from the now completed Phase I drilling program at its Detour Lake property in northern Ontario. In Phase I, Detour Gold completed 134 holes totaling 49,321 metres and has now released the assay results for 57 holes (43%). Drilling resumed on July 9 with four (4) drill rigs for a Phase II drilling program consisting of an additional 50,000 metres. As of today, 56 holes totaling 16,569 metres have been completed in Phase II, for a combined total of 190 holes (65,890 metres) thus far in 2007.

"Detour Gold Continues to Extend Gold Mineralization
at its Detour Lake Property in Northern Ontario, Canada
(DG-07-58 intersects 9.69 g/t over 24 m in Gap Zone)


Detour Gold Corporation ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the drill results of an additional 15 holes from its completed Phase I drilling program at its Detour Lake property in northern Ontario. In Phase I, the Company completed 134 holes totaling 49,321 metres and has now released the assay results for 57 holes (43%). Drilling resumed on July 9 with four (4) drill rigs for a Phase II drilling program consisting of an additional 50,000 metres. As of today, 56 holes totaling 16,569 metres have been completed in Phase II, for a combined total of 190 holes (65,890 metres) thus far in 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), based on a US$450 per ounce gold price and a cut-off grade of 0.85 g/t gold. The mineral resource is contained within two open pits (West Pit and Calcite Zone), located in the area of the former Detour Lake mine, which produced 1.8 million ounces from 1983 to 1999.

From the results announced today, nine holes (DG-07-32, 49, 53, 54, 58, 59, 60, 61, and 62) were drilled in the Gap Zone (between the two US$450 open pits), three holes (DG-07-43, 45, and 46) were drilled within the West Pit in areas with limited or no previous drilling, and three holes (DG-07-47, 50, and 52) were drilled in the Calcite Zone. The best mineralized (uncut) intervals encountered are shown below.

The mineralized corridor, tested over a strike length of 1.6 kilometres in Phase I, remains open west of the Calcite Zone and east of the West Pit along the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone (SLDZ). Gold mineralization within the corridor typically consists of multiple, subvertical, five to 25 metre wide zones grading between 1.0 to 3.0 g/t gold. High gold values are generally characterized by clusters of visible gold in quartz veins and pillow selvages within potassically altered mafic flows that contain a higher percentage of sulphide minerals.

The Phase I drilling program was designed primarily to expand beyond the current near-surface resource of 2006 with a 40 metre east-west and 80 metre north-south grid. The drilling focused between surface to 350 metres depth 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 Company plans to release a new resource estimate in the fall of 2007.

The Phase II drilling program will test 2.1 kilometres of the mineralized corridor with a 40 metre east-west and 40 metre north-south grid, to convert a significant portion of the known inferred resources into the measured and indicated categories.

The Company's current cash position is C$27.4 million, all in Banker's Acceptances (i.e. guaranteed by the bank) and cash, with no debt.

The Company has added a fifth diamond drill rig in August to initiate the technical work (metallurgical sampling and geotechnical drilling) for a feasibility study on the Detour Lake project. 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 (www.sedar.com).

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 http://www.hdgold.com/dgc/LatestDrillResults.asp 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. The Qualified Person for the resource estimate filed in December 2006 is Mr. Eric Kallio, P.Geo.

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.
