Richview Re-affirms its Continuous Program Aiming to Reactivate the Thierry Mine

Toronto, Canada, (May 9, 2007) - Richview Resources Inc. ("Richview"), (TSX: RVR) announces that it is commencing its summer validation and exploration program on its Thierry Mine property near Pickle Lake, Ontario. Richview has developed a complimentary approach to the two aspects of the Thierry Mine Project which management feels will maximize shareholder value.

The Company has determined that the summer and near future projects will consist of two separate areas of focus, the historically productive open-pit and underground Thierry Mine, and the K 1-1 open-pit project. Richview intends to develop and re-open the wholly owned Thierry Mine and initiating the K-1-1 Zone pending validation and verification of its historical and current resource data, as well as a current ongoing Economic Analysis. The company is actively examining an appropriate strategy to do so, both technically and monetarily.

The Company has engaged a deep drilling program to confirm and validate dip strike continuity of the known mineralization to the 3000 foot level. The anticipated extensions to the mineralized zone may potentially augment the known tonnage to be added to the current estimates in the measured, indicated and inferred categories.

An independent resource evaluation was completed by P & E Mining Consultants Inc. ("P & E"; Brampton, Ontario) for the Thierry underground Cu-Ni and released in a September 14, 2006 press release. This resource estimate is compliant with current NI 43-101 standards. This estimate includes values for the Platinum Group metals, Gold and Silver that are present in the mineralization. Recent drill programs (2003-2004-2005), historic surface and underground Diamond drill data and previous production information were incorporated into the resource estimate.

The resource was reported within constraining domains at a 0.5% Cu value for outline delineation purposes. A cut-off grade was based on an NSR value of C$45.53/tonne.

The mineral resources in this press release were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council December 11, 2005.

Based on the continuity and grade of the Cu-Ni mineralized material evident in the resource, P & E believes excellent potential exists to upgrade significant portions of the inferred mineralization to the indicated category. In addition, deep drilling has intersected zones of mineralization below the areas containing the delineated resources such that there is potential to enlarge the resource base through additional drilling below the delineated zones.

Based on the results of this study the company has immediate plans for the property which include up to a $2.75 million surface Diamond drilling program with the objective of further defining the Thierry underground inferred mineralization primarily at depths below the 1600 foot level where limited drilling has identified the down-dip extension of the zone. Richview will also conduct a surface Diamond drilling program around the K 1-1 open pit area in order to confirm and validate historic drilling by UMEX and to further define the open pit potential of the near surface mineralization along its identified 2500 foot strike length. The objective of this program will be to develop a current NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for this area of the property.

Richview has retained P & E Mining Consultants to carry out the Preliminary Economic Analysis on the Thierry Mine to study the economic viability of placing the Thierry Project back in to production. Richview is also in the process of engaging various Labs, in Canada and the U.S. in an effort to maximize the identification and extraction of Ni and other PGM elements, using newly available procedures and techniques such as Platsol. The inclusion of Ni and PGE's in future economic evaluations may have a positive effect on the economics and mineability of the deposit.

Pending the receipt of a positive result of this study the Company would at that time proceed with the dewatering and underground rehabilitation of the Thierry Mine. This work would allow the Company to carry out underground definition drilling and bulk metallurgical tests as part of the feasibility study process and for project development

The press release has been reviewed by Brian Newton, Qualified Person (P.Geo) of Billiken Management Services Inc., who is independent of the company.

The Board of Directors and management of Richview are committed to ensuring that Richview, as a responsible issuer and market participant, adheres to all the rules and regulations of the Ontario Securities Commission and the TSX.
