Pacific Cascade Intersects 0.136% Molybdenum Over 26.87 Meters With 0.306% Over 9.47 Meters



    VANCOUVER, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - Pacific Cascade Minerals Inc. announces the
results from the first three drill holes completed on the Crack Moly Project
located northeast of Harrison Lake, BC. These holes are the first three of
nine holes completed during the Phase I and partially completed Phase II drill
programs.
    The holes were drilled to test the eastern margins of a deep-seated
conductive zone defined by the Company's 2005 Induced Polarization (IP)
survey, which indicates chargeable zones extending to depths of approximately
500-600 metres below surface. All holes successfully intersected molybdenite
mineralization occurring as disseminations, fracture filling,
quartz-molybdenite veins and coarse-grained rosettes.
    Significant results were obtained from hole CM07-03 which returned a
weighted average of 0.044% Mo over 233.25 metres and includes high-grade
intercepts of 0.136% Mo over 26.87 metres and 0.306% Mo over 9.47 metres. The
remaining six holes of this summer's drill program are currently in the lab
pending assay. These nine completed drill holes cover a strike length of
approximately 700 metres. Preliminary indications suggest that the
mineralization is increasing to both the north and west, approaching the deep
conductive zones that will be the focus of the next phase of diamond drilling.

    
    A summary of the significant results is presented in the accompanying
table.

    Notes:

    -  core size is BQTK (equivalent to B-thinwall).
    -  sample intervals are generally 1.0-2.0 metres in length.
    -  values reported are from ICP and assay data by Eco Tech Labs
       in Kamloops, BC and are core length intercepts, not true
       width. Values reported are Mo, not MoS2 and all samples
       reporting (greater than)500ppm from ICP analysis are assayed.
    

    The molybdenite mineralization is found in all lithologies intersected to
date and includes granodiorite, quartz-feldspar porphyry, and both monolithic
and heterolithic breccias.
    Hole CM07-01 was collared as a vertical hole to test both near surface
and deeper IP chargeability anomalies and was drilled to a final depth of
343.51 metres. The hole intersected weaker zones of molybdenite in the upper
portion of the hole with broad zones of elevated molybdenite in the lower half
of the hole. Best results are from the interval 187.41-343.5 metres which
assayed 0.035% Mo over 156.09 metres, including 14.18 metres grading 0.141% Mo
from 290.90-305.08 metres. Local sample intervals reported anomalous tungsten
including 0.368% W over 2.00 metres.
    Hole CM07-02 was collared from the same setup at an azimuth of 220
degrees and a dip of -65 degrees; the hole was drilled to a final depth of
255.12 metres. The hole targeted the centre of a zone of high resistivity; the
southern edge of this same resistivity target was tested by hole CM07-01. The
hole failed to return any broad zones of molybdenite mineralization but did
intersect narrower zones of higher-grade molybdenite with assays of 0.114% and
0.219% Mo over 1.00 and 1.06 metres respectively.
    Hole CM07-03 was collared approximately 350 metres east-northeast of
holes CM07-01&02 at an azimuth of 180 degrees and a dip of -65 degrees and
drilled to a the final length of 323.70 metres. Multiple zones of both high
and low-grade molybdenum mineralization were intersected throughout the hole.
The interval from 1.25-234.5 metres assayed 0.044% Mo over 233.25 metres and
includes 0.136% Mo over 26.87 metres and 0.306% Mo over 9.47 metres. One
high-grade sample assayed 3.320% Mo over 0.51 metres. Additional conductive
zones are indicated approximately 200 metres below the bottom of the hole, the
company intends on testing this target at a later date with a larger drill.
    The casing was left in holes CM07-01 and CM07-03 so that these holes can
be extended to test deeper-seated conductive zones that exceeded the depth
capability of the drill rig used in the recently completed program.
