NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Toronto, May 14, 2007 – Leni Keough, President and CEO of Olivut Resources Ltd. (“Olivut” or the “Company”) is pleased to confirm the closing today of the private placement for the sale of 4,600,000 units at C$1.75 per unit (a “Unit) for gross proceeds of C$8,050,000 million with a syndicate of agents led by Genuity Capital Markets and including Canaccord Capital.

Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$2.00 per common share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the offering.

All of the securities sold pursuant to the offering are restricted from resale until September 15, 2007.

The proceeds from the placement will be used to continue the exploration program on the HOAM project and for general corporate purposes.

Genuity Capital Markets and Canaccord Capital Corporation (collectively, the “Agents”) received a cash commission of 7.0 % of the gross proceeds and compensation warrants entitling the Agents to purchase such number of common shares equal to 7.0% of the aggregate number of Units sold pursuant to the increased private placement. Each Compensation Warrant will entitle the Agents to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $2.00 per common share for a period of 12 months following the closing.

Olivut is a diamond exploration company with a 100% mineral interest in over 2,000,000 acres in the prospective HOAM Project in Canada’s Northwest Territories.  Olivut has spent over $7 million assessing the diamond potential of the property, including extensive geophysics and geochemistry.
