TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 10, 2007) - Tribute Minerals Inc. (the 'Company' or 'Tribute') (TSX VENTURE:TBM) is pleased to announce the return of more results from its winter drilling program on its Copperlode Property.

Additional analyses have been returned for Hole CL-2007-01 on its Copperlode Property, the first hole completed in the vicinity of the Copperlode D, E and Hornet Zones. The lower of the two intersections of semi-massive to massive sulphides from 482 to 489.9 metres down-hole (6.4 metres true width) returned a grade of 2.53% Zn, 0.50% Cu, 6.87 g/t Ag and 16.8 g/t Indium. This zone included analyses as high as 13.95% Zinc over 0.6 metres, and 4.68% Zinc over 3.0 metres. The previously announced results on March 15, 2007 from the upper intersection from 439 to 443.5 metres was 2.42% Zn, 0.20% Cu, 21.7 g/t Ag and 60.1 g/t Indium over 4.5 metres (3.6 metres true width). Analytical results are pending from holes CL-2007-02 and CL-2007-03 drilled 100 metres along strike to the west and 100 metres up-dip from GL-2007-01, respectively.

On the Garnet Property, results are still pending for holes GL-2007-45 and 46 that were completed to the west and down-dip from the Arrow Zone, respectively. The winter program is now complete, and drilling is planned to recommence using two drills at the end of May focusing on dry land set-ups on the Garnet and Copperlode Properties.

Core samples were split in half using a diamond saw and sealed in secure packages, shipped by bonded carrier from Ear Falls to ALS Chemex in Thunder Bay for preparation, and to ALS Chemex in North Vancouver for AU-AA62 assay (gold by fire assay with AA finish) and ME-MS61 47 element analysis (4 acid dissolution and ICP-MS). High analyses (greater than 10,000 ppm, 1%) for copper, zinc and (greater than 100 ppm) silver were submitted for ore grade AA62 analysis (4 acid dissolution with AA finish). A duplicate unknown to the laboratory is submitted per batch of ten samples. A polymetallic standard, unknown to the laboratories, is included with each submission of samples. ALS Chemex fulfilled standard QA/QC protocols. The Confederation Lake exploration program is under the direction of Trevor Boyd, P.Geo, Geological Consultant, Tribute, and a qualified person (QP) for the purposes of NI 43-101.
