Castillian Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CT)

Mangabal South Nickel-Copper Deposit, Brazil


Intersects 9.75 Meters Grading 3.14% Nickel and 1.44% Copper at the

Within 29.4 Meters Grading 1.27% Nickel and 0.72% Copper


intersected 34.2 Meters grading 0.62% Nickel, 0.33% Copper, and 0.02% cobalt

including 5.55 Meters grading 1.86% Nickel, 0.94% Copper

Joel Hrominchuk, the project manager, states “these results demonstrate continuity of the deposit in the up dip and down dip directions while confirming the high grade core from very near to surface in drill hole CRMS-07-059 to at least 450m along the plunge in drill hole CRMS-07-048. Continued successful drilling along the dip and along the plunge of the deposit continues to increase the volume and intersect good grade mineralization and therefore should have a positive impact on the tonnes and grade of the ongoing resource calculation.”


Conporec Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CNX)

Signs a Contract Valued at More Than $ 22 Million CDN With The Regional Municipality of York (ON)

a 30-month contract, with two one-year optional renewal periods with The Regional Municipality of York,

an Ontario (Canada) community made up of nine municipalities with a total population of close to one million residents. (North of Toronto)

This contract, the value of which could reach more than $22 million will allow for the recovery of source separated organics (SSO) at a minimum rate of 25,000 tons per year and potentially up to 40,000 tons. This organic material will be transformed into first quality compost at Conporec’s La Prade Environmental Park facility located in Becancour, Quebec (Canada).

This new facility, which is specialized in SSO recovery, has a Certificate of Authorization (CofA) to initially treat 40,000 tons annually. The design of this ultramodern treatment facility makes it a model facility in Canada and in North America. This second agreement with York Region will allow the facility to operate at full capacity. A second expansion phase is already planned to bring this capacity to 80,000 tons and eventually up to more than 200,000 tons annually.

In 2008, Conporec will therefore recover more than 65,000 tons of SSO waste in its two treatment facilities located in Sorel-Tracy and Becancour. This is an increase of 160% compared to the 25,000 tons processed in 2007. The growth in the amount of waste recovered by Conporec opens door to the application of complementary waste-to-energy technologies currently under development at Conporec’s La Prade Environmental Park.

“These new revenues from the Becancour and Sorel-Tracy facilities, combined with those generated by the construction of the facilities in France and in Australia allow us to anticipate very favourable results for Conporec in 2008,” said Mr. Jean Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Conporec inc. develops and operates various patented composting and sorting technologies for the treatment and recycling of municipal solid waste. The company successfully delivered or is in the process of completing several municipal waste composting plants in Canada, France, United States and Australia and has also completed about thirty composting installations in Canada. Conporec is a socially responsible organization listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Luna Gold Corp. (TSXV-LGC)

Aurizona Gold Project, Brazil

new assay results from the Company’s 4,000 m drill program at Piaba, the main mineralized zone at Aurizona,

(Hole 214)

intercepts 63.80 m of 2.54 g/t Au and 6.50 m of 15.82 g/t Au and ended in mineralization.

6.50 metres (at) 15.82 g/t Au, including 3.00 metres (at) 33.32 g/t
Au, in hole BRAZD-217
            -   54.15 metres (at) 1.17 g/t Au in hole BRAZD-213
            -   50.75 m (at) 1.76 g/t Au in hole BRAZD-223

Luna’s CEO, Tim Searcy, comments, “The drilling program continues to be a success as we encounter gold mineralization in the lateral extremities of the deposit, and continue to confirm and expand the mineralization in the weathered zones. However, it is the positive results from the bedrock of the central portion of Piaba that underscore the potential for depth expansion at Aurizona
