Canadian International Minerals provides update on rare metals exploration and closes private placement



    Trading Symbol CIN-CNSX

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Canadian International Minerals (CIN) has
completed exploration programs on three of its eight rare metal properties in
British Columbia this summer with programs being initiated on the other five
before the onset of winter conditions. Assays and final results from completed
programs are expected in coming weeks. Once final reports are completed, these
projects will be available for joint venture. Programs have consisted of
geological mapping with rock, soil and silt sampling along with prospecting.
    The Company's silicon properties have been visited by a major industrial
minerals company and have been included in an economic evaluation of a
potential silica processing plant in the Golden, B.C. area. Initial response
has been very positive and the results of the study are expected this fall.
    CIN continually evaluates new prospects for rare metals in Canada through
its extensive contacts in the mining and scientific communities. Since most
known rare metal occurrences have metallurgic or logistical issues that
negatively impact their potential economic development, CIN has focused on new
exploration models that have seen none or very little exploration for rare
metals.

    COPPER MOUNTAIN UPDATE

    The Company is evaluating data obtained by its recently completed AeroTEM
III airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey. Aeroquest Surveys has
identified targets for further ground geophysics to delineate possible drill
targets. SRK Consulting has been retained to provide a final report.
    CIN has acquired 100% in an additional 9 claims in the surveyed area,
totalling 231.43 hectares, from two private individuals for a total of $17,000
and 100,000 common shares of the Company. Part of the group is also subject to
a 2% NSR royalty.
    CIN's Copper Mountain claims directly adjoin Mitsubishi Materials
Corporation and Copper Mountain Mining Corporation's mine that is currently
under construction. The mine is a past producer of 1.7 billion pounds of
copper that closed in 1996, and therefore, there is significant developed
infrastructure on site and has a current resource of approximately 5 billion
pounds of copper.
