Playfair Mining Ltd.: Drilling Underway at Grey River

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 6, 2006) - Playfair Mining Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PLY) is pleased to confirm that diamond drilling is underway on its 100% owned high grade Grey River Tungsten deposit in Newfoundland. A total of 2,800 metres in 14 holes is planned for this drill program.

Eight holes totaling 1,600 metres are planned for the Main #10 Vein. The drilling is designed to provide sufficient data, along with Playfair's surface channel and bulk sampling completed last year and ASARCO's historic surface and underground sampling to allow calculation of a NI 43-101 compliant resource.

A further six holes totaling 1,200 metres are planned for the #6 Vein which is located nearby and to the northeast of the Main #10 Vein. Previous surface sampling of this vein has yielded similar results to the surface sampling of the Main #10 Vein.

Playfair owns 100% of four high grade tungsten deposits in Canada, is well financed and intends to aggressively advance these deposits towards production to take advantage of the buoyant tungsten market.
