Redcorp Ventures Ltd.: Tulsequah Project; Additional High Grade Mineralization At Big Bull Deposit

2.1 meters of 28.26 gpt Au, 731.30 gpt Ag, 0.63% Cu, 4.66% Pb, and 4.86% Zn

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 7, 2006) - REDCORP VENTURES LTD. (TSX:RDV) and Redfern Resources Ltd. ("Redfern"), its wholly-owned subsidiary, (together, the "Company"), are pleased to provide additional drill results from Redfern's exploration program on the Big Bull Deposit. The Big Bull Deposit is located within the Tulsequah Project property and is approximately nine kilometres south of the Tulsequah Chief Deposit.

Results from BB06053, BB06057 and BB06059 have been received and reviewed by Company geologists. BB06053 cut 2.1 meters of 28.26 gpt Au, 731.30 gpt Ag, 0.63% Cu, 4.66% Pb, and 4.86% Zn. This intercept is located at the southern end of the Big Bull trend and remains untested to the south and downdip.

Company President, Terry Chandler, stated: "Results from Big Bull, particularly in its southern extension, and the recently discovered new lens of mineralization, continue to exhibit excellent precious metal content. This area will be the focus of follow-up drilling in the spring of 2007 to explore the extensions and correlation of the high-grade intercepts and their potential for definition of a significant resource."

2006 Drill Program Discussion

BB06053 was drilled on Section 200N targeting the main Big Bull trend. BB06053 is the southernmost intercept on the main Big Bull trend drilled in 2006, and is 60 meters along strike with the mineralization cut in BB06028.

In addition to BB06053, the Company has received results for BB06057 and BB06059. BB06057, drilled on section 400N, cut an altered package of volcanics in the position of east limb mineralization and returned no significant assays. BB06059, drilled on section 800N, cut a late felsic intrusive and altered volcanics in the west limb mineralization and east limb mineralization positions, respectively. While significant grade mineralization was not intersected, company geologists are encouraged by the predictability of the mineralized horizons, as evidenced by associated alteration.

The Company is awaiting results for BB06050, BB06055, BB06058, and BB06061. BB06052 was collared prior to BB06053 from the same drill set-up and was abandoned at 60 meters due to drilling difficulties. A long section of the Big Bull Deposit is available on the Company's website.

In addition, the Company is also awaiting results from the final holes in the vicinity of the Tulsequah Chief Mine including additional step-out holes on the A-zone extension.

Quality Assurances and Controls (QA/QC)

For the 2006 drill program, sampling has been conducted and supervised by Redfern 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.
