NEWS RELEASE


FREEPORT OUTLINES PROGRESS AT THE HUTTON GARNET BEACHES

VANCOUVER, CANADA
TSX Venture Exchange:  FRI
Shares Issued:    13,486,232


FREEPORT RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: FRI) is pleased to outline 2008 progress at its Hutton garnet beaches in Labrador, NL.  Arrangements have been made for up to a 5000 tonne bulk sample with 2 shallow-draft barges, where one barge would be beached as a portable dock to load the second. Timing is subject to barge availability, weather, and final permitting requirements.        

A landmark development for the project is completion of comprehensive offshore bathymetric maps in mid-July 2008.  These maps were based on data collected in a collaborative effort with the Canadian Hydrographic Service.  Until this was work was completed, large-scale commercial vessels could not access the site as waters in the area were uncharted.

Due to lack of publicly available, accurate onshore maps, Freeport also commissioned a second legal survey to map the shoreline and the beaches.  The survey was coordinated with an archeological study - finally completed and accepted by government this week.  The study confirms no known sites will be impacted by work at the beaches.  All onshore and offshore survey data is being compiled with high-resolution satellite imagery for long-term beach monitoring.  

Commercial scale garnet separation of previously collected bulk sample material is ongoing at several existing industrial minerals plants in eastern Canada.  Further beneficiation work is underway to fine-tune the products.  An extensive review of over 8 potential pilot plant locations is nearing completion.  

New waterjet tests at an industry-wide study in the UK recently met with very positive response, with the Hutton concentrate considered comparable to other high quality commercial products.  This is the third industry-wide test we have participated in since 2005.  Freeport is confident in the quality of the Hutton garnet due to consistently favourable responses from users.
