    STEWART, BC, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. announces that
Phase I drilling that included over 6000 meters in 32 holes has been completed
on the Red Cliff property. This property is a former producing copper and gold
property dating back to 1908 located about 20 kilometers north of Stewart,
British Columbia in the Skeena Mining Division. It consists of 8 Crown Granted
claims along Lydden Creek. The Redcliff Zone contains 2,300 m of underground
development on 5 levels from 4 portals over a height of several hundred meters
with limited Cu-Au production reported in 1910-12 and 1973. From 1910 - 12
production from the Redcliff zone amounted to approximately 1,136 tonnes
estimated to average 5% Cu. In 1972 some 3,776 tonnes of ore was sent to a
local mill. The only reserve estimate reported for the Redcliff Zone was in
1912 showing a total of 18,900 tonnes averaging 3.19% Cu and 2.86 grams per
tonne gold. This estimate was only for broken mineralized material within a
stope on one of the levels in the mine. This estimate is historical and is not
43-101 compliant and is used for reference purposes only.
    The property is accessible by road approximately 1.5 kilometers from
paved highway 37A and is underlain by lithologies of the middle Jurassic
Hazelton Group. These rocks host significant precious and base metal deposits
in the Stewart Camp including the Silbak Premier, Silver Coin, Sulphurets, Red
Mountain and Eskay Creek deposits.
    The holes were drilled in order to test below the between and below the
lowest underground working on the Red Cliff zone. Drilling extended the zone
well below the lowest working as well as indicating that 4 separate zones of
copper-gold mineralization is present. The second phase of the drill program
is now underway. Assay results over 1% obtained for some of these holes are
shown below. The remaining holes will be released when assay results are
available.
