Redcorp Ventures Ltd.: Cutfield Freeman & Co. Appointed Financial Advisors for Tulsequah Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 2, 2007) - REDCORP VENTURES LTD. (TSX:RDV) and Redfern Resources Ltd. ("Redfern"), its wholly-owned subsidiary (together the "Company"), announce that it has appointed Cutfield Freeman & Co. ("CF&Co") as financial advisor to the Company to advise and assist on the project financing arrangements for the development of the Tulsequah Chief copper-lead-zinc-silver-gold mine in northwest British Columbia.

CF&Co is a London-based independent advisory firm with an extensive track record in securing project financing for mine development. CF&Co will work closely with the Company to define and implement a strategy for financing development of the mine. Financing options include debt, equity, mezzanine products, finance facilities related to off-take partner agreements and other alternative finance products.

The Tulsequah Project was the subject of a positive feasibility study completed by Wardrop Engineering Inc. and announced by the Company on January 29, 2007. The proposed development includes construction of a new 2000 tonne/day underground mine beneath the former producing Tulsequah Chief Mine which operated in the 1950's. The estimated reserves established in the feasibility study are sufficient for an initial eight year mine life, however on April 3, 2007 the Company announced expansions to the estimated total mineral resources on the Project resulting from exploration in 2006. Exploration drilling re-commenced on the site in late April. The Company is currently engaged in finalizing amendments to its existing environmental assessment certificate to allow barge transportation and to commence site development work in 2007.

Redcorp Ventures Ltd. is a Vancouver-based mineral exploration and development company with active projects in British Columbia and Portugal.
