Puma Exploration: 230 g/t Ag, 1.3 g/t Au, 3.6% Zn, and 2.8% Pb over 10.0 metres at Nicholas-Denys

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2007) - Puma Exploration (TSX VENTURE:PUM) has received the results from its latest drilling program on the Hache lens, including borehole F07-16 with grades of 230 g/t Ag, 1.3 g/t Au, 3.6% Zn, and 2.8% Pb over 10.0 metres.

All the boreholes cut zones of silver-lead-zinc-gold mineralization, over lengths of 2.6 to 28 metres. The Hache lens has so far been outlined by drilling over a surface length of 150 metres and a vertical depth of 100 metres. Possible extensions of the deposit have not yet been investigated either by drilling or by surface stripping. The mineralized zones are therefore open in all directions.

The Hache lens is now being completely stripped on surface over an area of 200 metres by 50 metres. The excavations will enable systematic, continuous sampling of the mineralized zones by channels spaced no more than five metres apart. This sampling, together with the drilling results, will then be used to calculate resources in accordance with Standard 43-101. Metallurgical tests are also under way for this lens, in particular to estimate the recovery of economic metals. The results of the metallurgical testing and excavation work will be released as soon as they become available.
