Shareholders to Receive Shares of Pinnacle Mines Ltd.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Tenajon Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TJS) ("Tenajon") and Pinnacle Mines Ltd. ("Pinnacle") are pleased to announce that they have entered into a binding letter agreement (the "Letter Agreement") whereby Pinnacle will purchase Tenajon's wholly owned subsidiary, 0781639 B.C. Ltd. (the "Corporation"), which holds an undivided 40% ownership interest in and to the Kansas Claim and a 100% ownership interest in and to the Summit Lake property. Pinnacle has agreed to purchase the Corporation for an aggregate deemed purchase price of approximately $3,015,000 (the "Acquisition"), subject to an adjustment as a result of certain events occurring before December 31, 2008. The Kansas Claim and the Summit Lake property are both located near Stewart, British Columbia. Upon completion of the Acquisition, Pinnacle will own an undivided 70.6% interest in and to the Kansas Claim and 100% of the Summit Lake Property. The remaining 29.4% undivided interest in the Kansas Claim is owned by Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd.

Based on a NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report on the Silver Coin Property (which encompasses the Kansas Claim) prepared by Minefill Services, Inc. of Seattle, WA in April 2007, upon completion of the purchase, Pinnacle will have control over 70.6% of 364,307 ounces of gold resources in the measured and indicated category plus 719,599 ounces of gold resources in the inferred category on the Kansas Claim and now own 100% of the past producing Summit Lake gold property. On the entire Silver Coin property, upon completion of the purchase, Pinnacle will control approximately 67.8% of 423,003 ounces of gold resources in the measured and indicated category plus approximately 65.8% of 947,988 ounces of gold resources in the inferred category. "This acquisition makes Pinnacle one of the most dominant gold exploration companies in the prolific Stewart camp," said Paul Saxton, President and CEO of Pinnacle Mines Ltd.

D. Bruce McLeod, President and CEO of Tenajon, stated, "The sale of the Corporation will allow Tenajon to focus on its molybdenum projects and will benefit its shareholders by allowing them to participate in a gold focussed entity which will have consolidated several significant gold deposits in the Stewart Camp."

On closing of the Acquisition, Pinnacle will issue 13,500,000 fully paid shares of Pinnacle ("Pinnacle Shares") and reimburse Tenajon up to $200,000 in cash in respect of reclamation deposits, exploration costs incurred by Tenajon on the Summit Lake property and certain other expenses. Under the terms of the Acquisition, Tenajon is required to distribute the Pinnacle Shares to its shareholders on a pro-rata basis by way of a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). The Pinnacle Shares are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance under applicable securities laws and the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and will be subject to further contractual trading restrictions until completion of the Arrangement. Tenajon has also agreed to grant to the management of Pinnacle a voting proxy on all of the Pinnacle Shares, the proxy shall expire on completion of the Arrangement. Tenajon has also granted Pinnacle an option to purchase the 3% net smelter royalty held by Tenajon on the Summit Lake property by payment to Tenajon of $115,000 in cash. Closing of the Acquisition is subject to satisfaction of certain conditions including regulatory approvals, confirmatory due diligence, and satisfaction of all covenants and conditions required to be performed by each of Pinnacle and Tenajon. The Acquisition is scheduled to close on or about May 16, 2008.

Tenajon shareholders shall receive approximately one share of Pinnacle for each 4.13 shares of Tenajon which they hold based on the current number of Tenajon shares issued and outstanding. The number of shares to be distributed will be subject to an adjustment based on the actual share structure at the record date, which is yet to be determined.
