Las Vegas, Nevada, September 13, 2005, Aberdene Mines Limited (the 'Company') (OTCBB: ABRM) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling on its New York Canyon copper project located in Nevada. Two drill rigs are currently in operation at this time -- a core rig on the Copper Queen property and a reverse-circulation rig on the Longshot Ridge property.

At Copper Queen, on the western part of the claim block, the core rig is currently drilling hole (05-1) at a depth of 736 feet.

At Longshot Ridge, on the eastern part of the claim block, the reverse circulation rig is drilling infill holes for verification purposes. The first hole (05-2), on the northern margin of the structure, has been completed intersecting a small amount of sediments before drilling into the intrusive to a depth of 195 feet. The second hole on Longshot Ridge (05-3) was drilled to a depth of 265 feet to test the northern boundary.

Once the Copper Queen hole (05-1) is completed to depth the core rig will be moved to Longshot Ridge to drill hole (05-4) and to test mineralization at depth and also for metallurgical purposes.
