RJZ Mining Corporation: Exploration Drilling Starts in Nova Scotia- Preparations Begin in Russia

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 19, 2007) - RJZ Mining Corporation ("RJZ") (TSX VENTURE:RJZ) -


RJZ has commenced drilling on its 100% owned Beaverdam East property in Nova Scotia. The target of this drilling is gold in the altered metasediments of the Cambrian-Ordovician Meguma Terrain. This terrain is host to many other gold occurrences in Nova Scotia including the Beaver Dam Gold Deposit currently being explored by Acadian Gold Corporation just west of RJZ's property. That gold deposit is localized in the overturned Beaver Dam - Fifteen Mile Stream Anticline which appears to be faulted to the north about 600 metres and then trends onto RJZ's property. The continuity of gold mineralization in this offset part of the anticlinal system was confirmed just to the west of RJZ's property by Coxheath Gold Holdings in 1986 and again by Acadian Gold Corporation in 2006.

One of the more significant characteristics of gold mineralization in the Meguma terrain is that it most often occurs in the presence of domal folding or cross cutting faulting in association with the main northeast striking anticlines. RJZ's target area has these characteristics. In addition, aeromagnetic, ground EM, and scattered geochemical anomalies are present. One drill is now on site and commenced work this morning.

The Beaverdam East project is being supervised by Mr. John O'Sullivan, P. Eng., President of Rainbow Resources Limited in Nova Scotia.


As the 100% owner of Magadan Mining Company (Magadan), RJZ has authorized fuel and supplies to be cached on Magadan's Talnikovy copper/molybdenum property and its Krutoi gold property in anticipation of drilling programs there this summer. The NI43-101 report for these prospects can be seen at www.sedar.com.
