Boss exploration - Five new zones of copper-gold mineralization located

    CALGARY, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp (TSXV - "BXX") is pleased to
announce that it has located five new zones of copper mineralization on its
100% owned Boss project located in southern Nevada. The five zones occur
within the area referred to as the Boss Extension where continuous channel
sampling has returned 2.11% copper, 0.22 g/t gold, and 26.93 g/t silver over a
continuous interval of 13.90 metres. The analytical results for the channel
sampling of two (referred to as Boss No. 4 and Boss No.5) of the six zones (To
view Figure-1 please see
are listed below.
    Mr. Elmer Stewart, President and CEO of Boxxer stated, "The discovery of
the Boss No. 4 and Boss No. 5 zones have doubled the potential size of the
Boss Extension zone to approximately 600 m long by 500 m wide and at least
175 m vertically. These new results have a different geochemical signature
than the results from the other mineralized areas within the Boss Extension
and suggest that at least two or three distinct phases of mineralization have
occurred on the property".

    Summary of Results:

    Two of the five new zones of copper oxide mineralization occur in that
area of the Boss Extension that has been described in a previous news release
(see news release dated May 15, 2008). The other three zones occur within an
area that measures 200 m long by 150 m wide located approximately 150 metres
south of the Boss No. 3 zone. The mineralization in the Boss No. 5 zone
contains a significant content of both lead and zinc, whereas the
mineralization exposed in Boss No. 4 contains very minor concentrations of
lead and zinc.

    Boss No. 5:

    This adit extends into bedrock for a distance of 13.90 metres and
returned an average of 2.11% copper, 0.22 g/t gold and 26.93 g/t silver from
the portal to the back end of the underground workings. The copper
mineralization extends past the end of the underground workings into the
bedrock. Over this interval, disseminated and veinlets of copper oxide
(malachite) mineralization occur in brecciated and sheared coarse grained
dolomite. Analytical results for the individual channel samples are set out

    The zone also contains from 333 to 986 parts per million cobalt. Copper
oxide mineralization is exposed in outcrop around the Boss No. 5 adit over a
vertical distance of at least 10 metres and over a horizontal distance of
40 metres to the east and 10 metres to the west.

    Boss No. 4:

    One sample from the copper oxide (malachite) mineralization exposed in
outcrop was collected over a vertical interval of 1.80 metres. The copper
mineralization consisting of disseminations and veinlets of malachite is
exposed in outcrop over a distance of approximately 50 metres to the west and
over a vertical distance of 15 metres. Analytical results for the 1.80 metre
vertical sample from the Boss No. 4 zone is set out below:

    Sample No.    Interval (m)    Copper (%)    Gold (g/t)    Silver (g/t)
    BM4-01-08         1.80          1.18        0.06           13.80

    Boss No. 6:

    This zone is located approximately 100 metres southwest of and 30 metres
below the Boss No. 5 zone and consists of disseminated and veinlets of copper
oxide (malachite) mineralization exposed in outcrop. Sampling of this zone has
been completed, analytical results are pending.

    Future Plans:

    In anticipation of commencement of a diamond drilling program, channel
sampling of all the underground working on the third, fourth, fifth and sixth
level of the Boss Mine is planned. The results of this work would be combined
with the anticipated diamond drill results to produce a three dimensional
model of the mineralized zone at the Boss Mine.

    Sample Preparation and Analysis:

    All channel samples were collected with a hammer and chisel and represent
continuous sampling of the material within the sample interval. Sample weights
ranged from 4 to 6 kilograms and sample intervals ranged from 1.80 to
5.1 metres. All samples were prepared and analyzed by Loring laboratories Ltd.
in Calgary, Alberta and were analyzed by using 32 element ICP analyses. The
gold, platinum, palladium, silver and copper concentrations were determined by
assay. Loring's quality system complies with the requirements for the
International Standards ISO9001:2000. Analytical accuracy and precision are
monitored by the use of international and in-house standards.
