TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Sept. 19, 2007) – MacDonald Mines (TSX VENTURE:BMK) experience and expertise in the James Bay Lowlands enabled the Company to execute a rapid land acquisition response in recognition of Noront’s major Ni/Cu discovery. This resulted in the Company having the ability to strategically select and acquire claim block targets based on scientific knowledge in the core zone of the greenstone belt. This also allowed the company to largely avoid competitive staking situations and acquire several claim groups adjacent to the south boundary of the Noront Double Eagle Property and covering what is interpreted to be the contact of an important geological unit.

Silver Spruce Resources-Labrador Inuit Land

BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA–(Sept. 14, 2007) – Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE)(FRANKFURT:S6Q) responds to concerns brought forward by the Nunatsiavut Government (News release of September 7, 2007) regarding mineral exploration by companies on Labrador Inuit Lands (LIL) as reported in the CBC news stories on September 12, 2007.

The CBC news stories gave the impression that Silver Spruce’s work on exploration properties in Labrador would have to cease due to permit problems with the Nunatsiavut Government. This perception is incorrect. Problems were incurred when preliminary exploration (prospecting, stream sediment sampling, line cutting and baseline environmental studies) was carried out on Labrador Inuit Lands in the Mount Benedict Area, prior to the submission of a work permit approval request, in contravention of Section 4.11 of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement. This was an oversight by the company and the company immediately stopped all work on these lands, and has been in communication with the Nunatsiavut Government to discuss the issue since it was brought to the company’s attention.
