(FV: TSX-V;F5V: FSE) is pleased to announce that it has signed a formal agreement with Marum Resources Inc. to acquire a 100% interest in Marum's Metallic and Industrial Mineral Permits in southwestern Alberta. The terms of the original Letter of Intent (see News Release dated December 19, 2006) have been amended. To acquire 100% interest in the permits, Firestone must pay $3,000 and issue 50,000 common shares of Firestone to Marum Resources within 14 days of receipt of approval of the terms by the TSX Venture Exchange. A 2% NSR will be reserved for Marum Resources, half of which may be purchased by Firestone at any time for $1,000,000. In addition, Firestone will provide Marum with 90 days notice of intent to let permits expire.

"We have integrated the Marum data into our own dataset for the area and are working on a detailed exploration program for spring, 2007." says Lori Walton, President of Firestone Ventures Inc. "We are looking at innovative exploration techniques to advance the project."

The permits held by Marum cover 100,948 hectares (249,872 acres).
