    STEWART, BC, Oct. 27 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
assays for the surface work from the 2008 exploration program on the 100 %
owned BA claims have been received. Assays indicate that at least 4 kilometers
of mineralized horizon have been outlined on the BA property. The BA claims
are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena mining division approximately
3 kilometers south of paved Highway 37A.
    Highlights of sampling include 56.5 g/t silver, 0.71% lead and 5.31% zinc
and 81.4 g/t silver, 0.86% lead and 6.23% zinc in a mineralized horizon
500 meters north of the area drilled in the 2006-2008 exploration.
    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. It appears that at least 12 kilometers of favorable horizon
is located on the property.

    
    Significant assays for the grab sampling are listed below:

    Samples BA 08-1 to 2 are from a partly exposed mudstone horizon zone in
excess of 10 meters exposed in the bank of a gulley. BA-08-03 is from a float
sample of dacite in the area of Samples BA-08-1 and 2. Samples BA-5 and 6 are
from dacite located 150 meters northwest of BA-08-1 and 2. Sample BA-08-11 is
from float rock located 3 kilometers south of the BA drilling. BA-08-12 and 13
are from a lower horizon relative to BA-08-1 and 2 with BA-08-12 from a
30 meter thick horizon.
    The Company has 36 drill holes that will be logged and sampled in the
near future.
    E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument
43-101, is in charge of the exploration program on behalf of the Company.
Drill core and surface samples are assayed by Assayers Canada of Vancouver,
BC.
