Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. - Drilling Continues to Indicate High Grade Silver in the Massive Sulphide Horizon on the BA claims.



    Trading Symbol: TSX-MTB

    STEWART, BC, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
assays for the first 10 holes for the 2007 drilling exploration program on the
100 % owned BA claims have been received. To date, a total of 25 holes have
been completed. The BA claims are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena
mining division approximately 3 kilometers south of paved Highway 37A.

    Highlights of drilling includes 6.1 meters of 276.65 g/t silver, 1.98 %
lead and 3.77 % zinc in DDH-2007-BA-2, 12.20 meters of 145.3 g/t silver,
3.13 % lead and 2.30 % zinc and 37.20 meters of 140.7 g/t silver, 2.63 % lead
and 2.89 % zinc in DDH-2007-BA-5, 26.98 meters of 99.03 g/t silver, 1.16 %
lead and 3.72% zinc in DDH-2007-BA-9 and 15.24 meters of 52.91 g/t silver,
1.01 % lead and 5.73 % zinc in DDH-BA-2007-10.

    The first drill completed 19 holes in a grid pattern measuring 15 by 15
meters in order to provide close spaced data on the west limb of the
mineralization along an anticline. This drill has been moved 150 meters
northeast to test the east limb of this same anticline.
    A second rig located several hundred meters south of the above initial
drilling has been coring low angle holes in order to test for the zone beneath
a steep mountain. This drilling has been successful in extending
mineralization into an area with no exposure.
    The mineralized zone is located in the upper parts of Bear Glacier within
the same stratigraphic horizon as that which hosts the Eskay Creek deposit.
The company believes that the zone represents a portion of a Kuroko-type
volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) system composed of an exhalite horizon
with related zinc-lead-silver mineralization. Mineralization occurs below the
main exhalite horizon and is located within mudstones, mudstone breccias and
dacite breccias. Mineralized rocks are at least 40 meters to 50 meters wide
and mineralization can be traced for over 1 kilometer of strike length and is
open along strike and to depth. In general, silver values appear to be
enhanced in areas with elevated copper values especially in DDH-2007-BA-4
where 164 g/t silver was intersected over 19.81 meters with copper values
increasing from 0.005 % to approximately 0.1 % in the silver enriched portion.

    Assays received for drill hole BA-2007-1-10 with assay results greater
than 1 % zinc are listed in the table below:
