Rockhaven Reports Abitibi Drill Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 2, 2007) - Rockhaven Resources Ltd. ("Rockhaven") (CNQ:ROCK) is pleased to announce that its joint venture partner on the North Abitibi gold property in Ontario, Tri Origin Exploration Ltd. ("Tri Origin") has received the drill results from a recently completed 1,302 metre drill program.

Tri Origin completed a 7 hole diamond drilling program at the North Abitibi project, located 150 kilometres north of Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The holes tested 4 separate geological structures located within a 2 square kilometre area believed to have potential to host gold mineralization.

Anomalous gold (greater than 0.1 grams of gold per tonne) was detected in samples taken from 6 of the 7 holes and intersections containing over 1.0 gram of gold per tonne were returned from 3 of the holes. Significant intervals from the 3 holes are as follows;

Management is pleased with the results of this program. Gold was intersected in new areas which extend the exploration potential of the property. Based on the results of this program an option agreement to acquire additional claims in the area has been entered into. The new option will be incorporated into the Rockhaven/Vista Gold Corp. ("Vista Gold") agreement and gives Tri Origin, Rockhaven and Vista Gold the right to acquire a 100% interest in 9 claims totalling 3,700 acres. The new claims are located contiguous to both the north and south boundaries of the North Abitibi property.

Tri Origin has the option to earn a 70% interest in the 3,380 acre North Abitibi property from Rockhaven and Vista Gold. Tri Origin is planning ground geophysical surveying and follow up diamond drilling for the upcoming field season.

Gold assaying was conducted by Accurassay Laboratories of Thunder Bay, Ontario using a fire assay/atomic absorption method on 30 gram samples. Samples were prepared for assay by Accurassay from sawn, NQ-size drill core taken from continuous intervals of drill core ranging from 0.4 to 1.2 metres in length.

The work program and technical information contained in this report was supervised by Ken Rattee, an independent geologist who has more than 26 years experience, working predominantly in north-eastern Ontario area and by Chris Pegg, a professional geologist and consultant to Tri Origin.
