    STEWART, BC, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. announces that
assays have been received from the 3 holes drilled on the Montrose zone which
is 500 meters north of the gold-copper Red Cliff zone within the 100 % owned
Red Cliff property.
    In 1939 - 41, there was 65 tons mined averaging 2.45 opt Au, 2.95 opt Ag,
.91% Cu, 3.5% Pb and 4.41 % Zn from the Montrose Zone.
    Work in the area of high grading during a 1979 surface sampling program
yielded 19.31 g/t Au over 2.43 m and 1987 surface sampling gave 7.93 g/t Au
over 3.81 m. Several holes drilled in 1988 to 1990 gave intercepts of 1.72 g/t
Au over 14.48 m including 9.31 g/t Au over 1.70 m and 1.17 g/t Au over 16.89 m
including 4.82 g/t Au over 2.29 m.
    In 1988 the Waterpump Zone which represents the south fault extension of
the Montrose Zone was discovered. It is located approximately 50 meters south
of the 1939-1941 mining. A trench over the zone gave values consisting of
21.37 g/t Au over 4.2 m and 6.89 g/t Au over 3.3 m with 2.0 m of dyke between
the values. Across the entire zone including the dyke, the sampling yielded an
average of 12.07 g/t Au over 8.5 m.
    During 2007, this zone has been extended 150 meters to the north of the
underground workings; Drilling has indicated that this zone is open to depth
and along strike both north and south.

    
    Assay results greater than 1 g/t gold for the 2007 drilling are listed
