Puma Exploration: 1.5 kg Ag, 7.4 g/t Au, 10.1% Zn, and 7.3% Pb Over 3.4 Metres at Nicholas-Denys

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Exploration Puma (TSX VENTURE:PUM) has just confirmed rich precious metals values in the Hache deposit by intersecting a mineralized lens containing 1,513 g/t Ag, 7.4 g/t Au, 10.1% Zn, and 7.3% Pb over 3.4 metres in borehole F07-15. This lens is part of a mineralized zone with an apparent thickness of 40.3 metres, grading 171 g/t Ag, 0.93 g/t Au, and 1.7% Zn. The mineralized zone consists of three separate enrichment zones of massive to semi-massive sulphides, locally called the North, Central, and South lenses. The Central lens was intersected at a vertical depth of 50 metres, and contains 720 g/t Ag, 3.8 g/t Au, 5.3% Zn, and 3.4% Pb over an apparent thickness of 8.4 metres.

This borehole was drilled on the same section as, and 30 metres north of, borehole F06-01, whose results (including 462 g/t Ag, 3.6% Zn, 2.1% Pb, and 1.9 g/t Au over 6 metres) confirm the presence of exceptionally rich precious-metal zones exhibiting considerable thicknesses.

Note that the definition drilling carried out on the Hache lens is aimed at defining the quantity and quality of ore in the mineralized zones, and that the results obtained will be used to estimate the resources according to the 43-101 standards. The results from the ten other holes drilled on the Hache lens will be released as soon as they become available.

The samples were analyzed in the ALS Chemex laboratory at Val d'Or, using the atomic absorption and ICP methods. The contents of this press release were prepared by geologist Marcel Robillard, a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101.
