Nevada Exploration Inc. ("NGE") closes second tranche of private placement

March 11, 2008

MONTREAL, March 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Further to its press release dated March 4, 2008, announcing the full exercise of its Series' A warrants, Nevada Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: NGE) ("NGE") is now pleased to announce that it has closed on the second tranche of its previously announced non-brokered Private Placement for total gross proceeds of $790,000.

Private Placement

NGE today issued 790,000 units, valued at $1.00/unit, for total gross proceeds of $790,000. Each unit consists of one common share of NGE plus one 1/2 warrant to purchase a common share of NGE at an exercise price of $1.50 per common share of NGE for a period of 24 months.

Wade Hodges, President and Chief Executive Officer of NGE, said that "with the closing of this second tranche of the private placement and with the full exercise of its Series' A warrants, NGE has a current cash position of over $4,000,000. NGE now has the funds to complete at least 12 months of continuous drilling using 2 full-time drilling crews, and is well positioned to advance its exploration portfolio and create significant shareholder value without the need to return to the financial markets for additional financing".

About NGE

NGE is an exploration company focused on gold exploration in Nevada, through its wholly-owned, Nevada incorporated subsidiary, Pediment Gold LLC. NGE is led by a highly experienced and historically successful exploration management team. NGE has developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry exploration technology, and is the first to complete a comprehensive survey of Nevada's groundwater chemistry specifically directed towards discovering new gold deposits. Management believes the results of NGE's groundwater chemistry program are significant in that they demonstrate that Nevada's known gold deposits exhibit recognizable groundwater chemistry signatures; and using this technology, NGE has identified and acquired several exploration properties with groundwater chemistry similar to that of known gold deposits. NGE is in the final stages of testing whether such water chemistry signatures can be followed "up stream" to discover new gold deposits in much less time and for much less money than the conventional exploration approaches currently being used by other exploration groups. NGE continues to refine and apply this technology to identify, acquire, and drill test its highly prospective exploration properties and is focused on generating maximum shareholder value by discovering new gold deposits.
