Appleton Exploration Inc. Commences Trenching on Gold-In-Soil Anomalies on its Spences Bridge Gold Project

September 12, 2007 - Vancouver, British Columbia. Appleton Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AEX) has commenced a follow up excavator trenching program on the six substantial linear cross-cutting gold anomalies identified earlier this summer on its wholly owned Dora property. Appleton is exploring the Dora property in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt for low-sulphidation epithermal precious metal mineralization. The Dora property is contiguous to the west to Consolidated Spire Ventures Ltd.’ s Pro spect Valley project, where Spire announced in July the discovery of a large low grade bulk tonnage target.

As disclosed in a news release dated July 19th, the Company’s 2007 detailed grid soil geochemical sampling identified a large area (1000m x 2000m) of multiple linear east-west and north-south trending gold-in-soil anomalies. The linear anomalies are both long and wide, and cross-cut each other, which may suggest a new mineralized system. The anomalies are described in the table below.

A success contingent diamond drilling program will follow.
