Drilling Resumes at Woodjam Gold-Copper Project

Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: FEX) and Wildrose Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: WRS) report that a drilling program totalling up to 2,000 metres will recommence at the Woodjam gold-copper porphyry property in central British Columbia this weekend. The drilling is being conducted in the Takom Zone to test coincident induced polarization (IP) and geochemical anomalies, as well as follow-up a single core hole (05-48) drilled last fall that intersected 0.10 g/t gold and 0.12% copper over 82.6 metres. The hole ended in mineralization and was getting stronger with depth.

The Takom Zone is located approximately three kilometres south of the Megabuck Zone where the second phase 2006 drilling program was completed. Takom is defined by a two kilometre by one kilometre soil geochemical anomaly with copper values ranging from 50 ppm to greater than 10,000 ppm. This strong copper anomaly coincides with a larger induced polarization geophysical anomaly.

The Company also reports receipt of assay results from the balance of the holes drilled this summer in the Megabuck Zone. Significant mineralization was encountered in three of the remaining eight holes. Hole 06-64 intersected 0.32 g/t gold and 0.06% copper over 138.2 metres; hole 06-65 intersected 0.46 g/t gold and 0.05% copper over 112.3 metres, and hole 06-66 returned 0.16 g/t gold and 0.03% copper over 143.3 metres (see previously released holes on news releases dated May 2, 2006 and September 14, 2006).

The final assay results for the Megabuck Zone were only recently received and will now be compiled to assist the Company to assess future exploration in the Megabuck Zone. This year approximately 10,000 metres of drilling has been completed in the Megabuck region.

The Woodjam gold-copper porphyry property is located ten kilometres from Horsefly in the Cariboo region of BC, and has excellent logistics and infrastructure. Mineralization at Woodjam is modeled after Northgate Mineral Corporation’s (TSX: NGX) Kemess deposit in northern British Columbia, and Newcrest Mining’s Cadia Hill deposit in Australia. Kemess commenced production in 1999 with a resource of 200 million tonnes grading 0.63 g/t gold and 0.22% copper while Cadia Hill commenced production in 1996 with a resource of 210 million tonnes grading 0.72 g/t gold and 0.18% copper.

The results of the second phase 2006 drilling program at Woodjam were reviewed, compiled and verified by the Fjordland’s geologists including John Peters, P.Geo., the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Acme Analytical Labs, an ISO 9001 accredited laboratory, assayed the samples by multi-element ICP-ES (1D) and fire geochemical methods with ICP analyses (3B) for gold.
