Jasper Mining Corporation announces further results; additional drilling on Erie Creek



    Trading Symbol: JSP (TSX Venture)

    CALGARY, June 28 /CNW/ - Jasper Mining Corporation (the "Company" or
"Jasper") has received additional tungsten results from its 100% owned Erie
Creek property, located near Salmo, British Columbia. The property covers a
total of 4,805 ha (11,873 acres), consisting of 14 contiguous mineral tenures
over an area of approximately 70 square kilometres.
    Anomalous Molybdenum-Copper-Tungsten (Mo-Cu-W) results have been
previously reported for the first nine holes (see Press Releases dated April
27 and May 28, 2007) from a preliminary 10 hole, 2,904 metre diamond drill
program. High grade (greater than 100 ppm or 0.01%) tungsten results were not
available for drill holes 8 and 9, as well as the end of Hole 3. These results
have been recently received/reviewed by the Company and are tabulated below.
Note: The intervals are not considered true widths.
    Further work is proposed, including additional soil sampling, prospecting
and geological mapping. A follow-up diamond drill program has been initiated,
with drilling having commenced June 19. The program will continue to test the
mineralized system identified in the previous 10 holes, with an emphasis on
drilling slightly farther to the southeast. The program will evaluate Mo-Co-W
potential associated with the Erie Creek Stock and surrounding area. In
particular, the area east of the surface soil anomaly interpreted to define
the surface exposure of the Erie Creek Stock returned abundant Fugro Airborne
Geophysical anomalies, specifically electromagnetic conductors, and is an area
of considerable interest to the Company.
    The recent market price for Molybdenum has exceeded US$30 per pound,
Copper has been trading above US$3.00 per pound and Tungsten has been priced
over US$12 per pound.
    Pertinent results, with specific emphasis on tungsten-bearing intervals
having greater than 100ppm or 0.01% W, are tabulated below (Note: includes
previous results from Hole 3). Some very high grade results have been returned
from Hole 10.
    Weighted average values have been determined for select intervals, as
follows:

    The core comprising the sampled intervals was split in half, with one
    half submitted for analysis and one half retained for subsequent
    analysis. The core was submitted to Acme Analytical Laboratory Ltd in
    Vancouver, BC for Group 1DX analysis. Sampled intervals averaged
    approximately 1.52 metres (5 feet) except for a number of high
    grade mineralized intervals for which shorter sample intervals were
    utilized.

    Notes: N/A - High grade (greater than 100 ppm) tungsten re-analyzed
    using Group 7KP analysis.

    A number of single sample or short intervals in both Holes 9 and 10
returned high to very high grade molybdenum and/or tungsten values. Several of
the intervals in the above table having highly anomalous molybdenum were
previously reported for Hole 9 (see Press Release dated May 28, 2007) but have
been included again with the corresponding tungsten values for reference.
Further sampling of the intervals bracketing these samples is expected to
result inidentification of thicker mineralized intervals. The results of the
additional sampling are expected in the next two weeks.
    Similar high grade molybdenum and/or tungsten intervals in Hole 10 have
been returned. Eleven of fifty nine samples from Hole 10 returned tungsten
values in excess of 100 ppm (the upper detection limit for the Group 1DX
analytical package) and have been re-submitted for more quantitative analysis.
    Pending further sampling and analysis, a number of high grade results
from Hole 10 are reported below.

    The results from the preliminary 2007 drill program are considered very
encouraging by management. Multiple holes returned moderately to highly
anomalous Mo-W-Cu results over multiple intervals within individual holes. A
182.87 m thick interval of moderately high grade molybdenum and moderately
anomalous copper (see Press Release dated May 28, 2007) was documented in Hole
8. These results are interpreted to suggest the presence of a mineralized
system. The spacing between individual holes is interpreted to suggest
potential for size and the results of the Fugro survey document abundant EM
conductors immediately east of the surface exposure of the Erie Creek Stock
which is interpreted to suggest potential for identification of further
sub-surface mineralization.
    The diamond drill program proposed for late June - early July is intended
to test mineral potential east and southeast of the surface exposure of the
Erie Creek Stock in the area characterized by abundant EM anomalies.
