Norsemont Extends Mineralized Zone 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 that encouraging results have been received from the first  three Phase II diamond drill holes targeting the Constancia Zone at the Constancia Copper-Molybdenum-Silver-Gold Porphyry Project in southern Peru.

@@start.t1@@      Highlights include:
      -    Hole CO-06-42: 317.00 metres of 0.44% Cu and 0.028% Mo (0.65% CuEQ1)
      -    Hole CO-06-43: 108.00 metres of 0.93% Cu and 0.013% Mo (1.08% CuEQ1)
      -    Hole CO-06-44: 210.00 metres of 0.58% Cu (0.68% CuEQ1).@@end@@

    Drill hole CO-06-042 is a step-out hole on the west side of the Constancia zone, which hit 317.0 metres of mineralization (Table 1). Drill  holes CO-06-043 and 044 are infill holes within the Constancia zone.

      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
      (8.00/1.20) plus Au grams per tonne times 14.47/(1.20(x)22.05) plus
      Ag grams per tonne times 0.24/(1.20(x)22.05).@@end@@

    In this current drilling campaign Norsemont has completed two additional infill holes (assays not yet received). 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. The company is currently drilling hole CO-06-051, which is an  additional step-out hole. Two drill rigs are currently operating on site.

    "We are delighted with these initial results," said Marc Levy, Norsemont President & CEO. "We are encouraged to find that the two infill  drill holes indicate excellent continuity within the mineralized zone. Of  significant interest is that the first step-out hole, peripheral to the  previously known Constancia mineralization, shows that mineralization  continues from near surface to a significant depth." (Refer to 2005 drill  results news releases for comparable data.)

    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. 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.

    Art C. Freeze, P. Geo., Director of Norsemont and Qualified Person as  defined by NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved information contained in  this news release.

    A plan map with drill hole locations will be available shortly on Norsemont's website at
