Serengeti Continues to Expand Copper-Gold Zone at Kwanika

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Serengeti Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SIR) is pleased to report the results of the latest six holes from its 2008 drill program currently underway on its 100% owned Kwanika copper-gold property, British Columbia.

"The drilling at Kwanika continues to expand the western side of the mineralized system," stated Serengeti President and CEO David Moore. "Both rigs on the property are currently dedicated to this objective and we are very pleased with the way this deep target is developing," elaborated Moore.

- Copper and Gold Equivalent calculations use metal prices of US$1.50 for
copper, US$600/oz for gold and US$8.00/oz for silver and both assume
metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns of 100%. Copper (Cu) EQ
equals Cu% + (Au g/t x 12.86/22.06) + (Ag g/t x 0.171/22.06). Gold (Au)
EQ equals Au g/t + (Cu % x 33.09/19.29 + Ag g/t x 8.00/600).

Of the six holes reported here, two holes, K-08-63, 65 tested the southwestern side of the mineralized zone. Two other holes, K-08-64, 66 tested the northern extension of the main zone and two holes, K-08-67, 68 were drilled along its eastern edge. Since the start of the 2008 program in mid-January, more than 14000 m of drilling have been completed in 31 holes including testing targets to the north and south of the main zone. Eleven of these holes have now been reported; additional results will be provided when available.

Hole K-08-63: A vertical hole drilled on Section 200N, encountered a 198.4 meter intercept grading 0.34% Cu, 0.53 g/t Au, including a high grade interval carrying 0.58% Cu, 1.05 g/t Au over 47.9 m. Three other vertical holes have been completed in this general area; K-86 and K-74, 50 m and 100 m north respectively and K-78, 75 m west of K-63. All are visibly mineralized over similar intervals to K-63.

Hole K-08-65: An angled hole collared from section 100N, as expected intersected a broad moderate grade zone carrying 0.32% Cu, 0.14 g/t Au over 436.5 m including 242.8 m assaying 0.49% Cu, 0.21 g/t Au within which occur two intervals of higher grade on the either margin of the zone. As indicated by drilling on the next section to the south, this hole lies near the southern edge of the higher grade copper-gold zone.

Holes K-08-66,64: Two angled holes drilled on Sections 675N and 800N, demonstrate a continuity of the moderate grade, 1:1 ratio copper-gold mineralization previously encountered in this area, particularly hole K-66 which intersected 108.4 m grading 0.2% Cu, 0.2 g/t Au.

Holes K-08-67,68: Two vertical holes drilled on the east side of Sections 400N and 300N, show generally low values except for a sulphide vein carrying 0.95% Cu, 0.32 g/t Au over 1.8 m in K-67. These holes establish an eastern limit to the mineralized system.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Sample analysis for the current program was completed at Global Discovery Lab in Vancouver, BC. A comprehensive quality assurance/quality control program including duplicate samples, blanks and standards formed part of the sampling protocol in addition to the laboratory's own quality assurance program. Individual copper values exceeding 2000ppm and gold values exceeding 100ppb were assayed and these intervals combined with geochemical determinations on the balance of the samples, with all results reported in % and g/t respectively. This procedure will generally result in an understatement of the average grades. The field program was supervised by Rich Parish, P. Geo., of Coast Mountain Geological Inc.. The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in National Instrument 43-101, and reviewed by the Company's qualified persons, Myron Osatenko, P. Geo., Chief Geologist and David W. Moore, P. Geo., President and CEO of Serengeti Resources Inc.
