NPN Announces Positive Drill Results at
Divide Project, Nome, Alaska

NPN ANNOUNCES POSITIVE DRILL RESULTS
AT DIVIDE PROJECT, NOME, ALASKA

November 1st, 2007, NPN INVESTMENT GROUP (the “Company” or “NPN”) (NPN-TSX: V) is pleased to announce results from drilling at the Divide Project, near Nome, Alaska, with joint-venture partner and operator, Millrock Resources Inc (MRO-TSX:V) (“Millrock”).
 
Highlights of the program include:
 
·        8.99 meters grading   1.5 g/t gold in hole DIV-07-03
·        3.05 meters grading 10.0 g/t gold in hole DIV-07-04
·        8.23 meters grading   5.8 g/t gold in hole DIV-07-05

Gregory Beischer, Millrock President & CEO states: “We are pleased with the outcome of the company’s first drilling program. Encouraging intersections of gold mineralization were realized in three of the five short holes drilled. The drill sample results demonstrate that gold can occur in satisfactory concentration over significant thickness at the property. We will plan an aggressive program for 2008 in which we will test for continuity between these drill intersections, and to depth.”   
 
Five holes totaling 561.1 metres were drilled to test a strong gold-arsenic soil anomaly on the Divide claims. The anomaly measures over 2,600 meters long and 660 meters wide. The strongest portions of the anomaly, which exceed 200 ppb gold over a broad area, had not been previously drill tested. The following table provides a listing of all mineralized intersections using a cutoff grade of 0.62 g/t.

These intercepts are thought to be close to true thickness, as the holes were drilled nearly perpendicular to the strike and dip of the mineralized vein sets. 
 
The Divide Property is located in the prolific Cape Nome mining district about 45 kilometers (28 miles) north of Nome, Alaska. Access to the property is via the Nome-Taylor Highway which crosses the eastern boundary of the 1,424 hectare (3000 acre) claim block. 
 
Millrock can earn a 50% interest in the project from NPN Investment Group Inc. (NPN) by paying 50% of all costs associated with the Divide Option: a total of US$500,000 over a five year period, and 50% of exploration expenditures, Additionally Millrock will issue 500,000 shares of the Company to NPN. Millrock is the exploration operator.
 
Bedrock at Divide consists of structurally deformed, retrograde greenschist facies metasediments (turbidites and related deep water sediments of late Proterozoic to Paleozoic age. These same rocks are the source of the alluvial gold deposits of the Nome Camp, where approximately 5 million ounces of gold has been produced by placer mining methods. The Rock Creek Mine, a lode mine currently under construction by NovaGold Resources Inc., is located approximately 33 kilometers (20 miles) to the southwest. Gold mineralization at Rock Creek is hosted in a similar geological setting to that at Divide. 
 
The 2007 exploration program at the Divide Project was supervised by Gregory Beischer, a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mineralized intervals were sampled and placed in sealed bags and delivered to Alaska Assay Lab in Fairbanks, Alaska for analysis. Each sample was screened for metallics, and a two assay ton aliquot was used for a fire assay atomic absorption finish. Because of gold loss problems previously encountered at this property and other nearby properties, the core was not split. All core was carefully logged and photographed by David Lajack, a principal of NPN Investment Group and a partner in the private group of underlying landowners, and in part by Philip St. George, Millrock’s vice-president of exploration, with depth markers showing and visible. All unsampled drill core and coarse rejects from the core samples have been retained as a geological record. A sample quality control/quality assurance program was implemented, and results of the program were determined to be acceptable.
