Penoles Joins Northair On The La India Project, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2007) - International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:INM) and its wholly owned subsidiary Grupo Northair de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. ("Northair") announces that it has signed a Letter of Intent with Exploraciones Mineras Parrena, S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Minas Penoles, S.A. de C.V., ("Penoles") to form a joint venture on Northair's La India project, located in the State of Durango, Mexico. Northair is pleased to join forces with Penoles who, as one of the world's largest silver producers, operates some of the largest and richest precious metal mines in Mexico.

Penoles can earn a 60% interest in the project by maintaining the obligations to the owners of the privately held internal La India concession, making cash payments to Northair of US$210,000, purchasing Northair shares from treasury valued at US$210,000 (at a 20% premium to market value) and by completing exploration expenditures of US$1,750,000 over a four year period.

The first year payment/share purchase of US$39,000 and exploration expenditures of $150,000 are a firm Penoles commitment, with all subsequent expenditures optional.

Penoles can increase their interest in the project to 75% by preparing a Pre-Feasibility Study, and can increase its interest to 80% by financing Northair to production with a 90:10 preferential payback to Penoles from production. If Northair elects not to participate, Northair will retain a 1% NSR interest. The final agreement is subject to board and regulatory approval.

The La India Project contains low sulfidation gold mineralization in transitional rhyolite volcanic pyroclastics that have been intruded by numerous rhyolite stocks, dikes and sills. The project has excellent access and infrastructure and it is located in the Sierra San Francisco, approximately 30 kilometres east of the small city of Santiago Papasquiaro and approximately 140 kilometres north of the state capital city of Durango. Geological mapping completed by Northair has defined an irregular surface area of mineralization, with exposed widths ranging from 25 to 70 metres and a strike length of at least 200 metres. Assay results received from 86 Northair samples taken within the exposed mineralized area returned an average grade of 0.965 g/t gold. Included within these samples were two lines of continuous sampling over limited outcrop. These lines were essentially perpendicular to each other and were comprised of five metre continuous chips. Line 1 returned 32 metres @ 2.31 g/t gold and line 2 returned 48 metres @ 1.08 g/t gold. Reconnaissance exploration has indicated that the zone is traceable through intermittent outcrops for several hundred additional meters in strike length.

The La India Project was identified as an attractive acquisition target by Northair exploration staff early in June of 2006, as part of the Company's generative exploration program. The Company is extremely pleased to have Penoles as a partner and looks forward with anticipation to the commencement of exploration.
