Target Commences Drilling on Sinbad Uranium Property & Announces Results From Successful Exploration Program on Canadian Gold/Copper Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2007) -


TARGET EXPLORATION & MINING CORP. (TSX VENTURE:TEM) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling on the Sinbad Uranium Property, located within the San Rafael Swell in eastern Utah, 20 miles southwest of Green River. The program will consist of 15 holes, totalling 4,500 feet, designed to test the projected extension of the Chinle Formation mineralized channels north-westward from the historic Sinbad Uranium Mine. Existing holes on the Property include intercepts of 4.5 feet grading 0.11% U3O8 and 3.5 feet of 0.18% U3O8. The program will also test six radon anomalies west of the historic drilling which may represent additional mineralized channels in the Chinle at depths of 200 to 300 feet.

Exploration Update on BC Gold/Copper Properties

The 2007 summer program, which consisted of geological mapping, soil geochemical surveys, Induced Polarization (IP) and magnetometer surveys, has been completed on both the Gunner and Bradshaw Properties.

The Bradshaw Property is located 10 kilometers (km) southeast of the Nickel Plate-Headley Mascot Gold Mine, British Columbia's third largest gold producer, which closed in 1996 after producing nearly 2.5 million ounces. Limited drilling on Bradshaw in the 1980's (626 metres in 6 holes) established the presence of not only high-grade veins - 94.97 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 0.76 metres, but also the potential for sediment hosted silicified and stockwork mineralization over significant thicknesses - 0.78 g/t Au over 62 metres. Three distinct gold-in-soil anomalies have now been defined over a strike length of three km. Two of these occupy the northern and southern edges of a circular chargeability anomaly, one km in diameter. The soil anomalies range in value from trace to in excess of 2 g/t Au. 6% of the values are greater than 0.2 g/t Au.

The Gunner Property is located 290 km north of Vancouver in the Gold Bridge Mining District, less than 15 km from the Bralorne-Pioneer Mine, British Columbia's largest gold producer. Previous work at Gunner in the 1990s indicated wide spread gold-in-soil anomalies and surface samples yielding 4 g/t Au and 0.12% copper (Cu) over 10.4 metres. The only drill hole on the property returned 84 metres of 0.38 g/t Au, 0.09% Cu, including 10.5 metres of 1 g/t Au and 0.16% Cu. The 2007 program further defined the soil anomalies over a strike length of 2.8 km and preliminary interpretation of the geophysics suggests the main soil anomaly is associated with a 2 km open-ended strong resistivity anomaly, which may represent the granodiorite that host the mineralization in the drill hole.

Drill programs are currently being planned for both properties and will commence in the summer of 2008.
