Wildcat Exploration Extends Gold Mineralization to 350 m south-east of the Jeep Mine Shaft.



    WINNIPEG, March 19 /CNW/ - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (WEL - TSX.V)
reported today that it has received complete assay results from holes
JP-06-05, JP-06-06 and JP-06-07. All three holes intersected gold-bearing
quartz veins that are interpreted to represent the southeastern prolongation
of the No.1 vein of the former Jeep Gold Mine (see table below).
    The drill holes extend from between 200 to 350 meters southeast of the
Jeep Mine shaft. All holes were drilled to test the southeastern extension of
the No.1 gold-bearing quartz vein of the former Jeep Gold mine, and tested for
Ni-Cu-PGE concentrations within the disseminated and massive sulphides
surrounding this vein.
    Significant widths of Au-Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization have also been
intersected including 10.0 meters in hole JP-06-05 assaying 0.44 gpt Au,
2.4 gpt Ag, 0.31% Cu, 0.13% Ni, 124 gpt Co, 49 ppb Pd and 29 ppb Pt from 263.0
to 273.0 meters.

    Three separate mineralized zones have been identified containing
anomalously elevated Ni-Cu-PGE values in holes JP-06-05, JP-06-06 and possibly
JP-06-07. The mineralized zones are hosted within sulphide-bearing gabbro to
diorite characterized by locally abundant inclusions of partially digested
rock fragments.

    JP-06-05
    --------

    Two zones of anomalous Ni-Cu-PGE values were intersected in this hole.
The first zone was intersected from 221.55 to 224.55 m downhole and assayed
0.16 gpt Au, 2.07 gpt Ag, 0.18% Cu, 0.11% Ni, 101 ppm Co, 48 ppb Pd, 28 ppb Pt
over 3.0 meters. This mineralized interval is 1.65 meters downhole from the
gold intercept previously reported (see Wildcat Press Release dated
December 11, 2006) of 109.5 gpt Au over a core length of 0.78 meters from
219.12 to 219.9 meters downhole.
    The second zone is an extensive interval from 263.0 to 273.0 meters,
which assayed 0.44 gpt Au, 2.4 gpt Ag, 0.31% Cu, 0.13% Ni, 124 ppm Co, 49 ppb
Pd, 29 ppb Pt across 10.0 meters. Including 1.0 meter of 0.91 gpt Au, 4.6 gpt
Ag, 0.89% Cu, 0.18% Ni, 160 ppm Co, 70 ppb Pd, 70 ppb Pt from 270 to
271 meters.

    JP-06-06
    --------

    Two zones of anomalous Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization were also intersected in
JP-06-06 and may correlate with the three Ni-Cu-PGE zones intersected
50 meters northwest in hole JP-06-05.
    The first zone was intersected from 93.87 to 94.8 meters and assayed
0.1 gpt Au, 2.2 gpt Ag, 0.14% Cu, 0.09% Ni, 50 ppb Pd, 60 ppb Pt over
0.93 meters.
    The second zone assayed 0.03 gpt Au, 1.94 gpt Ag, 0.33% Cu, 0.08% Ni,
79 ppm Co, 23 ppb Pd, 56 ppb Pt over 4.94 meters from 303.5 to 308.44 meters.
Included in this intersection are 1.08 meters of 0.03 gpt Au, 0.14 Pt, 40
ppb Pd, 2.4 gpt Ag, 0.15% Cu, 0.28% Ni, 180 ppm Co from 305.8 to 306.88
meters.

    JP-06-07
    --------

    This hole was drilled 50 meters southeast of JP-06-06.
    The mineralized interval intersected from 270 to 272 meters downhole
assayed 0.41 gpt Au, 3.0 gpt Ag, 0.26% Cu, 0.31% Ni, 50 ppb Pd, 55 ppb Pt and
84 ppm Co over 2 meters. This interval may correlate with the second zone
intersected in holes JP-06-05 and JP-06-06.
    Another mineralized interval from 288.47 to 289.47 meters assayed 0.1 gpt
Au, 1.6 gpt Ag, 0.09% Cu, 0.15% Ni, 30 ppb Pd, 25 ppb Pt and 98 ppm Co over
1.0 meter.
    A significant gold intercept was cored in a quartz vein from 291.8 to
292.1 meters, which assayed 7.61 gpt Au over 0.30 meters. Another gold
intercept from 308.9 to 309.7 meters assayed 2.67 gpt Au over 0.8 meters.
    Currently, hole JP-07-20 is being drilled and assays are pending for all
remaining holes. The remaining drill results will be released upon receipt and
analysis of the data.
