Pelangio Exploration Inc. Enters Option Agreement to Acquire Properties in Manitouwadge, Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2008) - Pelangio Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PX) ("Exploration" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that on September 15, 2008, it entered into an option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with various vendors pursuant to which it has been granted an option to acquire a 100% interest in (i) the Moshkinabi property, comprising 14 claims, 110 units, 1,760 hectares, located in the Herbert and Roberta Townships of the Thunder Bay Mining Division, Ontario (the "Moshkinabi Property"), and (ii) the Fairies Lake and Rawluk properties, comprising 10 claims, 83 units and 1,328 hectares, located in Cecil Township of the Thunder Bay Mining Division, Ontario (the "Fairies Properties").

The Moshkinabi Property is host to a poly-metallic nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), platinum/palladium (Pt/Pd) rich massive sulphide unit hosted in a metamorphosed suite of volcanics overlain by a sulphide rich ultramafic unit, that can be traced along a strike of two kilometres. Grab samples taken by the Company returned values of up to 3.9 g/t combined Pt/Pd accompanied by up to 1% Cu and 0.2% Ni. All information at this stage indicates good potential for both bulk tonnage Cu-PGM and massive sulphide Ni-Cu type deposits.

The Fairies Properties are both host to Cu and gold massive sulphide showings. The general setting and environment of the Fairies Properties indicates good potential for massive sulphide deposits.

Under the terms of the Option Agreement, Exploration may acquire the interest by making payments totaling $385,000 to the vendors, with such payments to be made on specified dates within four years after the execution of the Option Agreement.
