CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 7, 2007) - Torch River Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TCR) ("Torch") is pleased to announce further details with regard to an investment in the company by Sprott Asset Management. The company has received a sum of $576,000 to exercise 3,200,000 warrants for the account of Sprott Asset Management.

Torch has contracted with Neill's Mining Ltd to drill up to 8 holes (approximately 7000 feet) in an area of the property which had no previous drilling. This area lies in the northwest region of the 4000 foot by 5000 foot Red Bird intrusion and was identified as a prime target for drilling by the soil and chip sampling and ground geophysics carried out in Torch's 2006 program on Red Bird (see the August 15, 2006 release at our web-site, ).
