Redcorp Ventures Ltd.: Update of Resource Estimate on the Tulsequah Chief Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 19, 2007) - REDCORP VENTURES LTD. (TSX:RDV) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Redfern Resources Ltd. (together the Company), are pleased to provide an update on the Tulsequah Chief Project. As announced in the Company's news release dated January 16, 2007, Wardrop Engineering Ltd. was contracted to complete an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the "A-Extension" mineralization. The "A-Extension" was discovered by Redcorp in the summer of 2006 and is located within the footprint of the Tulsequah Chief mine. A positive feasibility study on the Tulsequah Chief was released January 29, 2007 and the Company is now focused on re-opening the mine.

"The A-Extension zone establishes the first significant mineral resources west of the 4400E fault in the mine area and proves that this area is prospective for hosting mineralization in addition to what has been established in the Feasibility Study. We are confident that the immediate Tulsequah Chief mine area and western margins of the established resource remain highly prospective for further discoveries and resource expansion," stated Terry Chandler, President.

A-Extension Resource Estimate

The A-Extension resource estimate incorporates information from 30 surface and underground holes, and was prepared by Gilles Arseneau, Ph.D., P.Geo, of Wardrop Engineering.



A-Extension Resource Estimate (@ CAD $86 NSR, Wardrop, March 14, 2007)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Category Tonnes Cu (%) Pb (%) Zn (%) Au (g/t) Ag (g/t)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Indicated 108,900 2.12 0.55 3.29 1.58 72.70
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inferred 98,300 1.02 0.35 4.22 0.75 27.46
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


The A-Extension resource is comparable in size to some of the smaller lenses within the main Tulsequah deposit, and it remains open to expansion with further drilling.

Revised Tulsequah Chief Resource Estimate

On January 29, 2007 Redcorp announced resource estimate for the Tulsequah Chief Deposit as part of the positive feasibility study. With the completion of the resource estimate on the A-Extension an updated resource estimate for the Tulsequah Chief deposit has been calculated by adding the new A-Extension resource to the previous Tulsequah Chief resource.

This updated resource was calculated by Gilles Arseneau, Ph.D., P. Geo, of
Wardrop Engineering and is NI 43-101 compliant.


This addition to the resource base demonstrates the potential to increase the life of the Tulsequah Mine. Of particular importance is the location of this new mineralization adjacent to existing development, facilitating addition of these resources to the mine plan. Moreover, the Company feels that there is high potential for additional discoveries to be made in the immediate vicinity of the established resources at the Tulsequah Chief Mine and elsewhere on the property. A graphic showing the full resource model and position of the A-Extension relative to existing and proposed workings is available on the Company's website.

Additional Information

Further to the Company's press release dated January 29, 2007, the NI-43-101 Technical report on the Tulsequah Chief Feasibility Study has now been posted on SEDAR. Please refer to Redcorp Ventures' profile on www.sedar.com.

A NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the Big Bull deposit is currently being compiled and will be released upon completion.
