Norsemont Continues to Expand Mineralized Zones in Step-Out Drilling at the Constancia Project

Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Norsemont Mining Inc. ("Norsemont" or "the Company") (TSX-V: NOM; Frankfurt: N8S; WKN: A0DQKK; OTC-BB: NOMFF; ISIN: CA6565291045) is pleased to announce results from five more Phase II diamond drill holes targeting the Constancia and San Jose Zones at the Constancia Copper-Molybdenum- Silver Porphyry Project in southern Peru. Highlights: - Hole CO-06-57: 84 metres at 0.81% Copper (0.93% Copper Equivalent) and 80 metres at 0.82% Copper (0.96% Copper Equivalent) - Hole CO-06-59: 16 metres at 0.75% Copper (0.89% Copper Equivalent) - Hole CO-06-61: 98 metres at 0.67% Copper (0.77% Copper Equivalent) and 26 metres at 0.71% Copper (0.77% Copper Equivalent) "We continue to extend the mineralized zones with each step-out hole we drill," said Marc E. Levy, CEO of Norsemont Mining Inc. "Bob Baxter, Norsemont's recently appointed President, is currently at the Constancia site familiarizing himself with the project and staff. His experience and knowledge will help move this project toward development."

Adjustment factors to account for differences in relative metallurgical recoveries will depend upon the completion of definitive metallurgical testing. CuEQ equals Cu per cent plus Mo percent times (8.00/1.20) plus Ag grams per tonne times 0.24/(1.20(x)22.05). Drill hole CO-06-57 is located in the vicinity of hole CO-05-19 and extends the western margin of the known mineralization within the Constancia Zone. The hole contains chalcopyrite-bearing skarn to a depth of approximately 120 metres, below which is secondary chalcocite and mixed chalcocite/chalcopyrite to the bottom of the hole at 191.7 metres. Hole CO-06-58 extends the mineralization within the San Jose Zone to the north-east. Copper mineralization is chalcopyrite in skarn. Hole CO-06-59 extends the mineralization within the San Jose Zone to the south-east. Copper mineralization is mixed secondary chalcocite and chalcopyrite in the upper portion, and chalcopyrite in skarn at depth. Hole CO-06-60 extends the mineralization within the Constancia Zone to the south-west. Copper mineralization is mixed secondary chalcocite and chalcopyrite. Hole CO-06-61 extends the mineralization within the Constancia Zone to the south. The hole contains copper mineralization as chalcopyrite in skarn in the upper portion, and mixed secondary chalcocite and primary chalcopyrite at depth. The majority of future holes will be step-out holes on 100 metre 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. 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, who has reviewed and approved the 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.
