Snowfield Development Corp.: Kimberlite Ready for Shipment

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2007) - Snowfield Development Corp. ("Snowfield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SNO) is pleased to announce that it has completed the crushing and bagging of 500 tonnes of kimberlite extracted from its Mud Lake kimberlite discovery. This operation was carried out on site under industry standard normal procedures. The crushed kimberlite is contained in 337 sealed bags and is now ready for onward transportation to the DeBeers Canada Exploration Ltd. ("DeBeers") Dense Media Separation Plant located in Grande Prairie, AB for further processing.

Upon consulting with DeBeers, the Company has been advised that DeBeers anticipates being able to start processing the 500 tonne bulk sample sometime between November 2007 and January 2008. Snowfield is currently negotiating to have the kimberlite barged to Yellowknife or Hay River for onward trucking to Grande Prairie to meet DeBeers anticipated schedule. As has been previously noted De Beers is providing the service of their Dense Media Separation Plant at no cost to, and with no obligation from, Snowfield.

The Mud Lake kimberlite, part of Snowfield's Ticho Project, is located on the shore of Great Slave Lake, approximately 50 km southeast of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. Diamond drilling is currently underway on the approximately 16,000 hectare (40,000 acres) claim group comprising the Ticho Project. It is anticipated that this drilling will lead to the discovery of further kimberlite bodies as geophysical and geochemical surveys have given compelling indications of such, as yet undiscovered, kimberlites. Drilling will continue, on an ongoing basis, through the remainder of 2007 and into 2008. The Company has two diamond drills on site and these drills are committed to the Ticho Project for the foreseeable future. With a fully winterized camp on site, Snowfield has the ability to continue its geophysical, geochemical and prospecting programs now underway, in conjunction with this drilling program.
