War Eagle Mining Company Begins Metallurgical Testing of Tres Marias Zinc and Germanium Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 27, 2006) - War Eagle Mining Company Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WAR) War Eagle Mining Company Inc. announces a 400 kilogram bulk sample of zinc and germanium mineralization has been sent from the Tres Marias project in Mexico for mineralogical testing which is to be carried out by Roche MT (Metallurgical Services), under the direction of consultant James Jennings. The sample will be processed at the COREM research center in Quebec City, Canada with results anticipated in 6 weeks.

A J200 KCJ pilot unit will do a range of sighter tests with 200kg of sample and the remaining 200kg will be used for the optimisation testing, followed by bulk testing. A more detailed program to develop grade recovery curves and to look at circuit requirements such as roughing, cleaning & scavenging options is also planned.

In addition, an independent detailed mineralogical study of the Tres Marias zinc and germanium mine is being undertaken cooperatively by two geologists, Bernhardt Saini-Eidukat of North Dakota State University, Fargo, and Frank Melcher of the Federal Institute of Geosciences and Natural Resources, Hanover, Germany. Ore materials were sampled underground during November of 2006. Techniques to be used will include X-ray diffraction, micro-X-ray fluorescence, reflected light microscopy, and electron microprobe analysis. Identification of the mineralogic hosts of the germanium mineralization will aid ongoing exploration, and will assist in the construction of an ore deposit genesis model.

The Project is under the direction of Mr. Terence Schorn, P. Geo., the qualified person pursuant to the National Instrument 43-101.
