Simberi Announces Results of the Aboriginal Survey in South Australia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) - Simberi Mining Corporation ("Simberi"), (TSX VENTURE:SAU) announces today that it has received the initial results of the Aboriginal Work Clearance Survey ("Survey") on the Lambina Property (EL 3566) in South Australia.

The Survey was carried out by approved consultants and representatives for the local Native Title Holders in accordance with the regulations. The report concluded "Drill sites 6, 7 and 8 occur within areas of cultural sensitivity and were not cleared for drilling. The remaining drill sites were found to be outside any areas of cultural significance and were cleared for drilling."

Simberi had set out a total of 10 possible drill sites for clearance and can proceed except for the three that are considered to be within areas of cultural significance. The Company will initiate discussions with local native groups to create an acceptable plan for drilling at the one site that is of cultural sensitivity. The remaining sites are secondary and will not be drilled during this phase of the program.

Simberi is now seeking proposals for drill contactors for a drill program at those sites that have been cleared. It is anticipated that drilling will be started in late September or early October.
