Canadian Arrow acquires new nickel - copper project



    SUDBURY, ON, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Canadian Arrow Mines, Ltd. (CRO: TSX-V) The
Company has acquired a 100% interest in the Glatz Property located 35 km south
of Dryden, Ontario in the vicinity of the Kenbridge Deposit. Previous
exploration efforts identified nickel-copper sulphide mineralization in twelve
trenches along a 700 metre trend. The zone, discovered in 1965 by local
prospector A. Glatz, is up to 40 metres wide and is open along strike and at
depth. Historical grab samples were reported to contain up to 1.95% Ni. More
recent samples collected by the MNDM, (2001, Open File Report 6079), returned
values up to 1.01% Ni. The mineralization varies from disseminated sulphides
to narrow semi-massive sulphide bands.
    The Glatz property is situated in an area of excellent infrastructure on
one unpatented claim consisting of 15 claim units. The property option
requires payments from the company totaling $50,000 and 150,000 shares over a
three-year period and the Company has to spend $100,000 in exploration
expenditures over a four-year term. Once the Company exercises the option, the
vendors will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty on these properties. The
transaction is subject to regulatory approval.
    Todd Keast, the Vice President of Exploration stated "The Glatz showing
fits the exploration mandate and complements the company's larger objective of
developing the Kenbridge Deposit into an operating mine with a central milling
facility. Delineating a nickel resource at Glatz or one of our other grass
roots properties will enhance the long term viability of the Kenbridge
Operation".
    The exploration program is being carried out under the direction of The
Company's Vice President of Exploration, Todd Keast; P. Geo., a qualified
person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The information in this
release was prepared under the direction of Kim Tyler; P. Geo., President of
the Company, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
