Chapleau Resources Ltd. Confirms Receipt of Gold Assays for the Remaining 3 Holes at Cajueiro



    Trading Symbol: CHI: TSX-V

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Chapleau Resources Ltd. (CHI: TSX-V) has
received gold assay results for the remaining 3 of the 13 diamond drill holes
(DDh's) drilled at the Cajueiro gold project. The 3 holes were drilled on a
gold soil anomaly approximately 400 m north and northeast of DDH3 which
reported 3.37 g/t gold over 2.1 m (53.2 to 55.3 m) and DDH7 which reported
1.68 g/t gold over 4.0 m (95.5 to 99.5 m). Two of the 3 holes confirmed narrow
zones (0.5 m) of gold mineralization with the best intersection being in DDH13
with the interval from 70.0 to 70.5m (0.5 m) returning 2.82 g/t gold (see
website for location map - www.chapleauresources.com and Table 1 attached with
summary of assay results for the 13 holes).
    As previously reported (see press release of June 26, 2007) the Phase 1
drill program of 13 holes (1,237.65 m) targeted known artisanal gold workings,
gold soil anomalies and interpreted shear zones within the Colider volcanic
suite of rhyolites, rhyolite porphyries, volcanic breccias and microgranites.
    Drill holes were inclined at 50 degrees with a maximum of 128 m core
length. Core recovery for the mineralized intervals averaged greater than
95.0%. The estimated true widths of all the mineralized intervals are
approximately 90.0% of the intersected widths in the holes. Principal sulphide
mineralization includes fine and coarse grained pyrite between 0.5% and 15.0%,
minor arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite.
    Drill cores for assaying were taken at a minimum of 0.5 m and maximum of
2.0 m intervals. All core samples (HQ diameter) were cut with a diamond saw
and one-half of the core placed in bags, numbered and sealed then sent via a
secure transport agency to the Company's main office in Cuiaba in Brazil for
shipping directly to the SGS Geosol laboratory in Belo Horizonte. The core
samples were then crushed down to 2 mm, a split of 250 to 300 g was taken and
pulverized to better than 95% minus 150 mesh. Gold analysis was by fire assay
of a 30 g sample and an atomic absorption finish. Silver and additional
thirty-two elements using aqua regia acid digestion were analyzed by
Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP). As part of the Company's QA/QC program
duplicates, blanks and internationally recognized standards were included in
the sample batches to check on assay precision and accuracy. SGS Geosol which
is an ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001: 2004 registered laboratory also has a
quality control program in place which includes standards and duplicates.
