2008 Drill Results Have Extended the High Grade Silver - Massive Sulphide Horizon on the BA claims over at least 800 meters in Strike Length and 400 Meters Down Dip. Drilling Also Indicates that Mineralization Can Vary From 30 up to 80 Meters in Width.



    STEWART, BC, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
assays for the first 6 holes for the 2008 exploration program on the 100 %
owned BA claims have been received. Assays for DDH 2008-BA-27 to 31 and
2008-BA-42 have been received. The BA claims are located 30 km east of Stewart
in the Skeena mining division approximately 3 kilometers south of paved
Highway 37A.
    To date a total of 48 holes have been drilled on the main exposed high
grade silver - massive sulphide horizon Zinc-silver and lead values within the
high grade silver - massive sulphide horizon on the BA claims were intersected
over at least 500 meters in strike length in a volcanic rock unit traced for
over 5 kilometers along the west side of the property. Wherever the zone is
exposed along the 5 kilometers of strike length, sampling has yielded
zinc-silver-lead values. In the immediate area of drilling, the mineralized
zone is still open along strike and down dip.

    
    Highlights of drilling includes 13.11 meters of 136.5 g/t silver, 1.37%
    lead and 4.11 % zinc as well as 19.82 meters of 146.81 g/t silver, 1.16 %
    lead and 2.56 % zinc in DDH-2008-BA-28 and 65.5 meters of 112.57 g/t
    silver, 0.92 % lead and 1.51 % zinc in DDH-2008-BA-42.
    

    The company believes that the mineralized zone represents the upper
portion of a Kuroko-type volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) system composed
of an exhalite horizon with related zinc-lead-silver mineralization. This
mineralization consisting of finely bedded sphalerite and pyrite with minor
galena and chalcopyrite occurs below the main exhalite (red jasper/green to
grey chert) horizon and is located within mudstones, mudstone breccias and
dacite breccias.

    Assays received for drill hole DDH 2008-BA-27 to 31 and 2008-BA-42 with
results greater than 1 % zinc or appreciable silver are listed in the table
