Superior Diamonds Defines Source Areas for Kimberlite Indicator Minerals and Kimberlite Boulders, Ville Marie Project, Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 30, 2006) - Superior Diamonds Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUP) ("Superior" or "the Company") has defined the source area for thousands of kimberlite indicator minerals and several kimberlite boulders (hypabyssal, diatreme and crater facies) in the Ville Marie region of Quebec. All heavy mineral data from Superior's 2006 spring reverse circulation drill and summer overburden sampling programs have now been received. The data clearly defines one dispersal train in the Lac Honorat area and loosely defines three others in the Lac Lussac and Lac D'Argent areas. Many of the kimberlite indicator minerals recovered have kimberlite adhering to their surface, indicating immediate proximity to a kimberlite source.

Superior's President and CEO John Paterson said: "We are pleased to have defined the source area for these kimberlite indicators at Ville Marie, where we have completed three phases of overburden sampling and have recovered thousands of kimberlite indicator minerals. With these results, the culmination of our activities over the past three years, we are excited now to be progressing to the next stage of exploration on the property, which will include a diamond drilling program this winter."

To further define the three dispersal trains in the Lac Lussac and Lac D'Argent areas, Superior is planning a second reverse circulation drill program in November 2006. In addition, a ground gravity survey will be completed as soon as freeze-up allows, to ensure all possible kimberlite targets are clearly defined. Once the data from these programs has been received and processed, Superior will initiate a diamond drill program, which is expected to commence in late February 2007.

In addition to the Ville Marie region, Superior is exploring for diamonds on a number of other properties in the Canadian Shield, including the Lesperance project in the Demaraisville area of Quebec under an option agreement with Matamec Explorations Inc. and Cambior Inc. and the Mistassini project, which is situated on the same structures as the Renard Kimberlites discovered by Ashton Mining of Canada.
