Core at Yenipazar deposit - Intersects 34 metres of 5.78 g/t Gold, 1.11% Copper, and 3.9 % Zinc

10/11/2007

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Aldridge Minerals Inc. (“Aldridge” or “the Company”), (TSX-V: AGM), announced today drill results from its ongoing resource definition program for the Yenipazar Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn deposit. Results of select drill holes, including hole YP-149 the richest intersection so far in the Yenipazar deposit, are listed below (for complete results, please see www.aldridgeminerals.com). Assaying was performed by ALSChemex (Vancouver).

The current drill campaign has demonstrated mineralization with grades, thickness and width similar to the deposit average as determined in the last NI 43-101-compliant study from May 2007. The deposit strike-length has been extended to 1,700 m., which is more than three times the strike length used for the last NI 43-101-compliant study (see release from May 9, 2007 for details, filed on Sedar: www.sedar.com/DisplayCompanyDocuments.do?lang=EN&issuerNo=00007950).

Aldridge President & Director, Hikmet Akin, said, “Since our goal is to extend the mineralization at Yenipazar, we are especially pleased that we have hit our best hole yet. These results support our aggressive work at Yenipazar to demonstrate its full value.”

Mineralization at Yenipazar is volcanogenic massive sulphide in nature that displays features of high-temperature metamorphosis, and has an open-folded, sheet-like occurrence at depths ranging from 35 m to 190 m below surface.

The Yenipazar project is subject to an earn-in agreement with Anatolia Minerals, wherein Aldridge can earn a 100% working interest, subject to project expenditures of US$ 6 M and stepwise payments of total US$ 1 M to Anatolia over a period of 6 years, a 6 % net proceeds interest (NPI, revenue less operational cost) until revenues reach US$ 165 M, and 10 % NPI thereafter. Since the acquisition of the project in Dec 2004, Aldridge has paid about US$ 3.5 M for exploration.

Dr. Martin S. Oczlon, PhD Geo, a director of Aldridge and a Qualified Person as such term is defined in NI-43-101, has reviewed and verified the technical content of this release.
