Portal Intersects Copper/Gold Along 1200 Meter Strike Length at Anchoris

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 9, 2007) - Portal Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PDO) is pleased to report results from the recently completed 2200 meter reverse circulation drill program at its Anchoris project in Mendoza Province Argentina. Significant copper gold mineralization was intersected in two holes AN8A and AN14 separated by 1200 meters at the La Totora Zone.

In the La Totora zone, drill hole AN8A intersected 87 meters grading 0.33% copper, 0.10 g/t gold and 0.065% molybdenum from 178 to 265 meters, this mineralization remains open to depth. Drill hole AN14, located 1200 meters south of AN8A, intersected 65 meters grading 0.37% copper and 0.07 g/t gold from 210 to 277 meters. Drill hole AN9, on the southeastern extension of the zone (800 meters southeast of AN14), intersected silicified and pyritic volcanics and intrusive from 51 to 250 meters but with only weakly anomalous copper values.

Drilling in the San Pedro-La Julia zone intersected a strongly phyllic altered porphyry zone with disseminated pyrite. Only one hole, AN13, the westernmost drill hole, intersected anomalous values averaging 0.113% copper over 83 meters from 297 to 380 meters. This mineralized zone remains open to depth.

The La Totora copper gold porphyry zone where it was intercepted in drill hole AN8A is estimated to be 200 meters in width and has only been tested to a vertical depth of 200 meters. Portal Resources is currently permitting several diamond drill holes to test the higher grade northwest portion of the Totora zone to a depth of 400-800 meters. The La Totora zone has been traced on surface over 2000 meters and using geophysics for an additional 2000 meters.

Sampling procedure at Anchoris is to prepare and seal two splits from the reverse circulation cuttings at the drill pad. One is stored at the project site in a secure location for reference with the other collected from the site by Alex Stewart Argentina S.A., a subsidiary of the international laboratory Alex Stewart (Assayers) Limited and transported to their laboratory in Mendoza for analysis. Samples are analyzed by fire assay for gold, and multi-element ICP for copper, silver and trace elements. All work on the project is carried out under the direction of senior staff and Mr. Gary Nordin, P.Geo., British Columbia, the designated Qualified Person for the Anchoris project in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.
