Apex Geoscience Completes Bulk Sampling, Submits Samples for Laboratory Testing

MISSOULA, MT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/08/08 -- Delta Mining and Exploration (PINKSHEETS: DMXC) is pleased to announce that Apex Geoscience LTD has completed the 30 tonne bulk sampling program on Delta's Homestead Property.

The purpose of the bulk sampling program is to test for the presence of macro-diamonds. The program consisted of collecting 5,095 kilograms of orange breccia kimberlite, 22,500 kilograms of hypabyssal kimberlite and 3,140 kilograms of mantle xenoliths for a total of 30,735 kilograms (33.8 tonnes). The samples have been delivered to Saskatchewan Research Council'sGeoanalytical Laboratories.

The samples will undergo Dense Media Separation and Caustic Fusion processes. The laboratory's website provides the following explanation of the caustic fusion process:

"The caustic fusion process involves an 8 Kilogram sample fused in a kiln containing caustic soda. The hot residue is then poured through sieves and the selected material is then chemically treated to reduce the residue to a manageable size. The residues are then observed and the diamonds recovered."

Once the results are made available they will be examined by Apex Geoscience, who will then issue a full report to Delta along with any macro- and/or micro-diamonds recovered from the processes. The company will then provide an Executive Summary of the Report to its shareholders via a press release and on Delta's website.
