Redcorp Ventures Ltd.: Resource Estimate Completed For Lagoa Salgada Deposit, Portugal

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2007) - REDCORP VENTURES LTD. (TSX:RDV) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Redcorp Empreendimentos Mineiros Unipessoal Lda ("REM") (together, the "Company"), are pleased to provide an update on the Lagoa Salgada Project in Portugal. The Company has received the results of the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the Lagoa Salgada Deposit, completed by Wardrop Engineering Inc.

The Lagoa Salgada project is located in the Iberian Pyrite Belt in southern Portugal. The Iberian Pyrite Belt hosts several world class deposits including the current producing Neves-Corvo and Aljustrel Mines operated by Lundin Mining, which are located 85 km and 50 km respectively, to the southeast of the Lagoa Salgada deposit.

Lagoa Salgada Resource Estimate

The Lagoa Salgada Resource estimate incorporates data from 10 surface holes and includes data collected by previous operators on the project and new holes drilled by Redcorp as part of the 2006-2007 drill program. The resource estimate was prepared by Gilles Arseneau, Ph.D., P.Geo of Wardrop Engineering Inc. Due to wide spacing of the drillholes the resource has all been classified as inferred.

Mineral resources were estimated using the inverse distance weighted to the second power with 3 dimensional block modelling software provided by Gemcom Software International Inc. Grades were interpolated into 10m by 10m by 10m blocks. Grades were estimated in three successive passes. Blocks that were within an 80m by 60m by 30m search radii were classified as inferred mineral resource if at least three 2m composites and at least two drill holes were within the search ellipse.

2006-2007 Drill Program Summary:

During the 2006-2007 program, a total of 5197 meters of drilling was completed in 11 holes. The program was successful in 3 key areas:

1. Expansion of known mineralization: Drillhole LS06043 cut a total of 24.7 meters of saprolite which is believed to be the weathered equivalent of massive sulphide mineralization. Individual samples within the saprolite graded up to 3.12% Zn and 16.6 gpt Ag over 1.3 meters. At the base of the saprolite 1.85 meters of less weathered massive sulphide was recovered from this hole and graded 2.08% Zn and 17 gpt Ag.

2. Extension of the Lagoa Salgada Mineralizing System: LS07047 was drilled to the immediate north of the Lagao Salgada deposit across an interpreted cross fault. The hole encountered 243.22 meters of volcanics and breccias with varying intensities of footwall-style, sericite-pyrite alteration, including local quartz-pyrite stockwork. This new information has upgraded a series of anomalies trending to the north from LS07047.

3. Discovery of new lens of massive sulphide mineralization: RM07004 cut 2.5 meters of semi-massive to massive sulphides from 436.6 to 439.10 meters down the hole. This new discovery is located in the Rio de Moinhos area of the Lagoa Salgada Project. In follow up drilling, drill hole RM07006 collared 370 meters to the south west encountered similar geology including a small jasper horizon which may be the distal equivalent of a massive sulphide body. This area will be the focus of drilling in subsequent programs. No significant assays were returned from these two holes, however, the Company is extremely encouraged by the discovery of a potential new lens of massive sulphide mineralization.

Project Update:

Under the exploration contract between the Company and the Portuguese government, the Company has applied for and received a one year extension on the Lagoa Salgada Concession. Under the terms of the contract the area of the concession has been reduced by 50% and now totals approximately 207 square kilometres. All key areas within the property have been retained. Follow up drilling in the Lagoa Salgada and Rio de Moinhos target areas is planned for the fall of 2007.

Quality Assurances and Controls (QA/QC)

For the 2006 drill program, sampling has been conducted and supervised by Redcorp geologists using established documented sampling procedures. Samples are shipped directly to Eco-Tech Laboratories in Kamloops for sample preparation, ICP analyses, wet assays for base metals and fire assays for gold and silver, using industry-standard procedures. The Company has a comprehensive QA/QC program in place to ensure sample and assay integrity including field blanks, duplicate samples and standards for base-metals, gold and silver.

The resource estimate has been prepared in accordance with the Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). Gilles Arseneau, Ph.D., P.Geo of Wardrop Engineering is the Independent Qualified Person who has assumed authorship of this estimate. A complete 43-101 Technical Report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days.
