VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 17, 2007) - Selwyn Resources Ltd.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or before October 19, 2007. The Flow-Through common shares sold will be subject to a four months plus one day hold period from the date of closing.

Selwyn's focus is the exploration of its properties that make up the Selwyn Project in the Yukon, which hosts large tonnages of zinc-lead mineralization. The known deposits have the potential for the large scale production of zinc and lead, at a time when major new mines are needed to ensure adequate future zinc mine supply.
