VANCOUVER, March 13 /CNW/ - The Board of Directors of Pacific Cascade
Minerals Inc. are pleased to report that the company has signed a diamond
drill contract with Britton Bros/Boart Longyear Diamond Drilling of Smithers,
The company reports that all permit applications have been submitted to
the British Columbia Department of Mines, Energy and Petroleum Resources for
approval of a Phase 1 diamond drilling project. The Phase 1 drill program is
anticipated to commence in April 2008 and will test coincident resistivity and
chargeability Induced Polarization (I.P.) anomalies discovered on the Brewster
Lake Claims, Nechako Basin area, central British Columbia as reported in the
news release of February 5, 2008. These coincident resistivity and
chargeability anomalies start just below surface, extend to the maximum depth
the I.P. can read, and remain open to depth.
Phase 1 will consist of 7 holes covering a surface area of approximately
700 by 400 metres to a planned depth of 350 metres. Presently the resistivity
with coincident chargeability anomalies are approximately 1300 metres by
1300 metres and are open to the north for 700 metres to the property boundary.
Concurrent with drilling the company will commence line cutting for a further
10 line kilometres of I.P. will be completed to extend the survey to the
northern boundary of the claims.
Pacific Cascade's Brewster Claims are located 1.0 km north of TTM
Resources Inc.'s Chu Claims which has recently reported an indicated resource
of 235.3 million tonnes of 0.067% Mo and an inferred resource of 221.5 million
tonnes of 0.063% Mo (TTM Press Release - January 28, 2008)
