Tres-Or Resources Ltd.: Mann Platinum/Palladium Property, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2007) - Tres-Or Resources Ltd. ("Tres-Or") (TSX VENTURE:TRS) has intersected shallow platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd) mineralization on our Mann Platinum/Palladium Project, located 46 kilometres northeast of Timmins, Ontario. The Pt and Pd mineralization occurs within a well defined structural corridor which potentially links platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd) mineralization on the Mann property with an historic platinum group element showing on Tres-Or's claim to the north.

Drill hole MAN07-02 returned a weighted average of 762 ppb (Pt + Pd) over 1.93 m within a clinopyroxenite unit. The lowest part of this mineralized zone comprises a shorter interval of 1,140 ppb (1.14 grams per tonne Pt + Pd) over 0.5 m (see Table 1 below). This drill hole was one of 4 drilled by Tres-Or last summer totalling 479 m. All samples from the drill program were split with one half of the core submitted to Acme Analytical Laboratories of Vancouver, BC for multi element analysis and fire assay for Pt, Pd and Au analysis (see news release dated May 9, 2007).

Further work is recommended, including stripping the structural corridor to look for additional Pt and Pd mineralization, and compilation of all structural and lithological data from previous mapping and drill programs.

The Mann property lies within the Mann Intrusive Complex which also has potential for Ni and other base metal deposits similar to the Alexo and Sothman deposits which occur between 32 km and 100 km to the south. In light of recent significant discoveries related to magmatic sulphide segregation associated with ultramafic volcanic flows, Tres-Or has expanded the Mann project claims to the north and northeast to cover known copper and zinc mineralization along the south side of Lake Abitibi.

SNL Enterprises Ltd. ("SNL") is earning a 50% interest in certain claims comprising the Mann property.

The Mann property exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of Sarah Palmer, Ph.D. and Elaine Basa, P.Geo.(ON), a qualified person under NI 43-101. Tres-Or is the project Operator.
