    VANCOUVER, April 16 /CNW/ - Mr. Ray Paquette, President of Canadian
Mining Company Inc. (the Company) is pleased to report that all project
related geochemical samples collected during the field trip conducted by
Dr. Pat O'Hara and George Ryberg have been analyzed by ACME Analytical
Laboratories, Ltd. confirming the presence of copper oxide - gold
mineralization on the property.
    Lithogeochemical samples, analyzed by ACME, quantified the copper values,
and confirmed and quantified the presence of gold within a shear zone on the
property (Table 1). The property is located in the vicinity of the Harcuvar
and Harquahala Mountains, known as the Bullard Pass Property.
    Both samples E-401 and E-404 contained high gold values. A select sample
of mineralized and altered rock fragments from a prospect pit dump (sample
E-401) contains 2.7 ppm gold and 0.89% copper. A select sample of mineralized
and altered rock fragments trench dump (sample E-404) 8.3 ppm gold and
(greater than)1.0% copper.
    An average five foot long chip sample of a shear zone at an adit entrance
(E-405) contains 4.9 ppm gold and 0.7% copper. Another average 5 foot chip
sample of a shear zone collected in a trench (E-403) contains 0.23 ppm gold
and 6.2% copper. One average dump sample from an existing shaft contains
0.1 ppm gold and 0.07% copper. Anomalous silver, lead, zinc, and bismuth are
also present in these samples.

    A VLF-EM survey generated two 1000 foot profiles across the shear zone
centered on the approximate location of lithogeochemical samples E-403 and
E-405. These profiles confirmed the conductivity of the mineralized shear
    This preliminary phase of the orientation program confirms the presence
of mineralization on the property, and provides a framework to guide future
exploration efforts in the area.
