    STEWART, BC, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. announces that the
final results for the Red Cliff zone on the Red Cliff property have been
received.

    Assays up to 3.61 % copper and 1.76 g/t gold were obtained over
10.73 meters in DDH-2007-RC-56 as well as 2.66% copper and 0.30 g/t gold over
11.90 meters in DDH-2007-RC-54.

    The company drilled 8825 meters in 42 holes testing 4 different targets
on the property. This property is a former producing copper and gold property
dating back to 1908 located about 20 kilometers north of Stewart, British
Columbia in the Skeena Mining Division. It consists of 8 Crown Granted claims
along Lydden Creek. The Redcliff Zone contains 2,300 m of underground
development on 5 levels from 4 portals over a height of several hundred meters
with limited Cu-Au production reported in 1910-12 and 1973. From 1910 - 12
production from the Redcliff zone amounted to approximately 1,136 tonnes
estimated to average 5% Cu. In 1972 some 3,776 tonnes of ore was sent to a
local mill. The only reserve estimate reported for the Redcliff Zone was in
1912 showing a total of 18, 900 tonnes averaging 3.19% Cu and 2.86 grams per
tonne gold. This estimate was only for broken mineralized material within a
stope on one of the levels in the mine. This estimate is historical and is not
43-101 compliant and is used for reference purposes only.
    The property is accessible by road approximately 1.5 kilometers from
paved highway 37A and is underlain by lithologies of the middle Jurassic
Hazelton Group. These rocks host significant precious and base metal deposits
in the Stewart Camp including the Silbak Premier, Silver Coin, Sulphurets, Red
Mountain and Eskay Creek deposits.
    The holes were drilled in order to test below the between and below the
lowest underground working on the Red Cliff zone. Drilling extended the zone
well below the lowest working as well as indicating that 4 separate zones of
copper -gold mineralization are present in the immediate area of the
underground workings. Assay results over 1% Cu and or 1 g/t Au obtained for
some of these holes are shown below.

    (xx) DDH-10 was re-sampled as initial assays samples were not received by
         lab.
    

    True widths of the intersected zones are unknown but underground workings
indicate that zones are up to 4.5 meters in thickness. Mineralization is open
along strike to the west as well as to depth and up dip. Drilling was located
at the base of a mountain and mineralization has been traced up slope
800 meters to the mountain top as well as 500 meters along strike. The
presence of rusty zones that extend from the area of underground workings to
mineralized trenches on the mountain top indicate that up slope extension is
favorable for further copper-gold mineralization. The 2007 drilling only
intersected the northern most vein system and 2 veins south of this of
drilling were not tested. Numerous mineralized zones remain untested.
    E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo. is the qualified person under National Instrument
43-101 and is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the company.
    Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd is a Canadian based mineral exploration company
whose activities are in the Stewart and McKenzie area of BC. It is actively
exploring for gold-silver-base metals on the Silver Coin project, silver-base
metals on their American Creek properties, copper-gold in the Stewart area,
