Trade Winds Drills 11.10 g/t Gold Over 11.00 Metres Within 55 Metres of Surface at Detour Lake, Ontario

TIMMINS, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Trade Winds Ventures (TSX VENTURE:TWD)(PINK SHEETS:TWDIF)(FRANKFURT:TVR) is pleased to announce additional results from its 13,000 metre 2007 winter diamond drill program on Block A at Detour Lake, Ontario. Block A is being explored as a 50/50 Joint Venture between Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) (50%) and Trade Winds (50%), the operator during the exploration phase.

The Company has received further notable results from holes TWDDH-210 and TWDDH-212 on Section 15660E. These two holes are within one of twelve step-out sections, drilled near surface, to determine the continuity of the M Zone structural corridor. Management is very pleased with the results of this program, as it continues to define the near surface zone. The M Zone was intercepted at a depth of 26 metres and is believed to extend up to the surface to bedrock. The amount of overburden in this section is approximately 5 metres. The gold bearing M Zone structural corridor has a strike length of over four kilometers, continuing onto the 100% owned Gowest property.

Diamond drill hole TWDDH-212 returned 11.10 grams/tonne over 11.00 metres, including 44.00 grams/tonne over 1.00 metre and 28.50 grams/tonne over 1.00 metre.

Diamond drill hole TWDDH-210 returned 3.73 grams/tonne gold over 7.00 metres, including 18.95 grams/tonne over 1.00 metre and 7.85 grams/tonne gold over 1.00 metre.

Block A, using a cut-off of 1.0 grams/tonne, has an indicated resource of 14,158,000 tonnes grading 1.77 grams Au/t containing 804,321 ounces of gold and an inferred mineral resource of 24,796,000 tonnes grading 1.88 g Au/t containing 1,499,552 ounces of gold (resource calculation completed by Golder Associates Ltd. in Oct 2006).

Also management is looking to increase shareholder value via spin-offs of the Tuole Gold/Copper and the Silu Zinc/Lead projects, located in the Peoples Republic of China. TWD will look at similar spin-out strategies for its other Canadian projects, which include a 60% option in the Birch Lake (Red Lake), Ontario gold project and its 100% interests in the Turner Lake, Nunavut project and its Treasure Mountain and Dardanelles gold properties in B.C.
