        Gold US$450 per oz., and Silver US$7.50 per oz. Adjustment factors to
        account for differences in relative metallurgical recoveries for gold,
        copper and molybdenum will depend upon the completion of definitive
        metallurgical testing. CuEQ equals Cu per cent plus Mo percent times

    Drill holes CO-06-O47, -049 and -051 are step-out holes in the Constancia Zone that contain mixed chalcocite and chalcopyrite.

    Drill hole CO-06-048 is an infill hole in the Constancia Zone that contains mixed secondary chalcocite and chalcopyrite.

    Drill holes CO-06-050 and -052 are step-out holes in the San Jose Zone  with chalcopyrite mineralization in skarn.

    The majority of future holes will be step-out holes on 100 meter centers, similar to the program carried out in 2005, for the purpose of  calculating a resource estimate for the property. Two drill rigs are  currently operating on site.

    "We are highly encouraged by these results, as they continue to push  out the extent of the mineralized footprint of both the Constancia and San  Jose zones," said Marc E. Levy, President & CEO of Norsemont Mining Inc.

    The drilling program and geological studies at the Constancia project  are being supervised by Dr. Thomas A. Henricksen, P. Geo., Norsemont's  Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Henricksen has reviewed and  approved information contained in this news release. Core samples are cut  with a diamond saw, with one-half of the core placed in sealed bags, and  shipped to ALS Chemex Assay Labs in Lima, Peru. The program includes an  extensive quality control program for assaying which includes the  systematic use of standards, blanks, and field duplicate samples. Secondary  laboratories are also used for check assaying.

    A plan map with drill hole locations is available on Norsemont's website at www.norsemont.com.
