Cadillac Mining Corp. obtains permit for drilling program on Tuzo Creek, BC Moly prospect

    VANCOUVER, July 7 /CNW/ - Cadillac Mining Corporation (TSXV:CQX) is
pleased to announce the receipt of a work permit from the Ministry of Energy
Mines & Petroleum Resources for a drilling program of six drill holes on the
Tuzo Creek molybdenum prospect located near the town of Beaverdell in
south-central British Columbia. Drilling is expected to commence within 10
    This work is the follow-up to the 780-meter drilling program completed in
December 2007. It is designed to test the extension of a tabular zone
intersected in DDH TZ07-04 that carried molybdenum mineralization over its
total length of 173 meters, and bottomed in mineralization. The hole returned
48 meters of 0.074% Mo within 170 meters that averaged 0.038% Mo. See
Cadillac's March 28, 2008 news release for details. DDH TZ07-04 was an offset
of Amax Explorations' DDH 81-05 which intersected 0.060% Mo over 33.5 meters.
    The December 2007 drilling also intersected broad widths of strongly
mineralized breccia carrying elevated but sub-economic zinc values (0.33% Zn
over 103 meters), and unusually strong pyrite as stringers and disseminations
which average approximately 6% over-all. Zones of elevated sulphides are often
seen peripheral to molybdenite deposits in British Columbia.
    The 2008 follow-up drilling represents a departure from the model guiding
all earlier work which postulated a westerly mineralized trend along a narrow
corridor. The current program will instead test a north-east extension of
known mineralization along a trend that had not been regarded as prospective
in the past.
    Plans and sections showing details of the geological environment can be
viewed on the Company's website.
    Cadillac can acquire a 100% interest in the 1746-hectare property by
completing a two-year schedule of cash and share payments to an aggregate of
$90,000 and 1,100,000 common shares. The agreement is subject to a 2%
production royalty that can be purchased for $1,000,000. Cadillac has made an
initial $20,000 payment, and has issued 300,000 shares.
