Xmet Intersects 11.86 g/t Gold over 3.55m on Fox Zone at Duquesne-Ottoman Property: Zone Wide Open to the East

TORONTO, April 19 /CNW Telbec/ -Xmet Inc. (TSXV: XME) is pleased to report further high grade drill intercepts from the ongoing resource expansion drilling program at the Duquesne-Ottoman property. The extension of a historical drillhole DQ-03-18-ext, which had been stopped short of the Fox Zone, returned 11.86 g/t Au (10.87 g/t cut) over a 3.55m interval from a depth of 550.80m to 554.35m (figure 1).  Deeper drilling on the Fox Zone in hole DO-11-23 intersected 3.04 g/t Au over 12.0m, including 5.20 g/t Au over 3.6m about 340 m vertically below hole DQ-03-18-ext.

"We are very pleased with these latest drill intercepts on the Fox Zone, as they demonstrate continuity of mineralization at depth with historical hole DQ-97-79 that returned 26.29 g/t Au over 2.7m, and may provide for additional resource expansion at Fox." stated Xmet President Charles Beaudry.

All reported assay intervals were cut to 30 g/t Au unless otherwise stated. True width is estimated to be 80% of reported widths.

In addition, approximately 2,000m further east on the Nip Zone, hole DO-11-28 returned 12.81 g/t Au over 2.35m from 266.85m to 269.20m. This hole was drilled 70m above hole DQ-06-18, which reported a high grade assay interval of 143.35 g/t (uncut) Au over 0.9 meters within a wider mineralized interval. This area of the Nip Zone is scheduled for further drill testing in 2011.

Exploration holes DO-10-22, 24, 25, 26 and 27 tested several geophysical targets and did not return any significant results.  Approximately 12,500m of drilling has been completed of the current 13,000m program and drilling continues with assays pending or expected for an additional four holes.
