    STEWART, BC, Nov. 20 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
assays for holes BA-11 to BA-17 from the 2007 drilling exploration program on
the 100 % owned BA claims have been received. A total of 31 holes were
completed; 26 on the main sulphide zone with 5 on other targets in the project
area. 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 28.96 meters of 203.5 g/t silver,
2.5 % lead and 1.0 % zinc in DDH-2007-BA-15, 2.44 meters of 178.5 g/t silver,
5.6% lead and 1.06% zinc in DDH-2007-BA-16 and 18.29 meters of 246.5 g/t
silver, 0.78% lead and 1.71% zinc in DDH-2007-BA-17 including 2.44 meters of
1091 g/t silver, 2.94% lead and 1.31% zinc.

    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 the upper 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. To date based on the drilling,
the mineralized horizon has been defined over appreciable widths over
800 meters of strike length along a bench east of the Bear Glacier. This
horizon is amenable to open pitting if economic studies in the future are
positive. Four post mineral dykes ranging in width from 1.5 to 2 meters cut
through the mineralized horizon. Late stage replacement mineralization
associated with barite and hematite alteration appears to carry the high
silver values.
