Strategic Nevada Resources Welcomes Brian White as Staff Geologist for the Crescent Mine

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 18, 2006) - Neil Linder President of Strategic Nevada Resources (TSX VENTURE:SNS) is very pleased to welcome a man whose resume speaks for itself.

Mr. White's achievements are too long to list in this press release. Here are a sampling of Brian White's accomplishment's, during his illustrious thirty year career. As well as a quote from Mr. White on what he perceives the potential future of The Crescent Mine may be. We are very pleased that he has joined our team and look forward to working with him!

Brian G. White

- Involved in exploration and applied exploration and rock mechanics research in the Coeur d'Alene Mining District for 30 years.

- Worked for all major companies and in nearly all mines that have been active during this time, as well as for the Spokane Research Laboratory of the US Bureau of Mines, which, later, became part of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The Spokane Research Lab has long led field-oriented rock burst and rock mechanics research in the district.

- Applied regional stratigraphy to the exploration and study of the important red-bed-associated copper-silver deposits of the Revett Copper Belt of northwest Montana and northern Idaho;

- Substantially reinterpreted the major tectonism of the Coeur d'Alene district and the Lewis and Clark line, an important tectonic lineament that hosts the district and helped identify the metamorphic shear zones that apparently created the veins.

- Identified and defined the Noxon line, a northerly trending structural lineament that is inferred to have localized Sullivan- and Revett Copper Belt-type deposits that were later mobilized into Coeur d'Alene veins, thereby accounting for the unusual abundance of lead, zinc, and, especially, silver in the Coeur d'Alene district.

- He pioneered lithologic control of ore as an effective tool for exploration in the Coeur d'Alene district.

- He also perfected the field usefulness of carbonate zonation about veins as an effective tool of exploration that is sometimes capable of detecting veins up to hundreds of meters away.

Brian White is Quoted as Saying

"Just as in many other mines of the Coeur d'Alene district, the historically mined veins at the Crescent Mine were followed downward with little systematic exploration for other nearby veins. As a result, some of the better country for finding new veins lies at relatively shallow depths, rather than beneath historically mined ore. In addition, a lot has been learned about lithologic and structural controls of Coeur d'Alene silver veins since the Crescent was last mined, and practical wallrock alteration guides have been developed and refined so that exploration can take place much more effectively than in the past. The Crescent Mine appears to have potential to still become one of the larger producers in Coeur d'Alene district's famous Silver Belt."
