Drilling Update on Pan De Azucar
Assay Results Expected Prior to Month End

Tony Climie, P. Geol., President of Mindoro Resources Ltd. (the "Company") reports the following update of drilling on the Pan de Azucar Project (the "Project"), Philippines. Drilling commenced on September 23, 2002. To date, approximately 450 metres of core drilling have been completed in 5 holes. Samples are being analysed by McPhar Geoservices of Manila. Assay results should be available prior to the end of November, and a news release will be issued at that time.

The objective of the current drilling is to extend mineralization on the Valderama Deposit and obtain enough information to arrive at a preliminary resource estimate. The Valderama Deposit is a pyritic massive sulphide deposit with promising copper-gold-silver and zinc values. It was discovered by a reconnaissance drill program in 2001.

Plans are being formulated to carry out a drilling program on the Company's Lobo and Archangel Projects (also in the Philippines), tentatively set to commence January, 2003. Recent work identifying high gold-silver-copper values on two major veins has substantially increased the priority of Lobo. Nearby at Archangel, a porphyry copper-gold system exposed in a creek bed is also a high priority target.

For the Lobo Project, see news releases of October 2 and September 16, 2002; and for the Archangel Project, see news release of November 29, 2000.
