Superior Initiates Diamond Drill Program, L'Esperance Diamond Project, Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Superior Diamonds Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUP) ("Superior" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the completion of its 2008 ground magnetic survey on its L'Esperance Property, Quebec and the initiation of a diamond drill program. The geophysical survey established the presence of several targets that are believed to be the source of the kimberlite float discovered this past fall. The identified targets fall within a well defined kimberlite indicator mineral dispersal train that includes "diamond field" G-10 Cr-pyrope garnets and "diamond - inclusion field" chromites. A continuous reading GPS magnetometer (walking mag) was used to carry out the geophysical survey that covered 91 line kilometres at 50 metre line-spacing between data measurement points. Abitibi Geophysique completed the survey and processed the data.

Dr. Thomas Morris, President and CEO of Superior, states: "Several compelling geophysical targets have been identified. These targets are beneath the surface of Lac Wachigabau, up-ice of a significant kimberlite indicator mineral dispersal train discovered last year. We are excited at the prospect that the source of the kimberlite float and the kimberlite indicator minerals dispersal train may be associated with one or possibly several of these geophysical targets."

Superior has initiated a 2,000 metre, eight hole diamond drill program to test these targets. Access to the site is by ice road and drilling is expected to be completed by early second quarter.

The L'Esperance Property comprises 312 claims covering an area of 13,400 hectares. Of these, 60 claims covering 3,116 hectares are 100% Superior owned. The balance (252 claims or 10,284 hectares) is part of an option agreement signed in August 2005 between Superior, Matamec Explorations Inc. and IAMGOLD Corporation. Superior can earn a 50% interest in the 252 claims and the right to 100% of all diamonds and kimberlites discovered on them by spending $1.5 million and by issuing 540,000 shares by August 25, 2010. Matamec retains all rights to other minerals and metals on the Property. Matamec and IAMGOLD share a 2.5% gross overriding royalty ("GOR") on diamonds produced from the Property, subject to Superior's right to buy back a 1.5% GOR for $3 million.
