Canadian Arrow Reports 1.28% Nickel from Glatz Surface Grab Samples

    SUDBURY, ON, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Canadian Arrow Mines, Ltd. (CRO: TSX-V) (the
"Company"), reports exploration results from properties in the Kenbridge area
of northwestern Ontario. Recent prospecting on the Glatz Property, the Apex
and the Nielson Gauthier occurrences (Denmark Lake Property) has identified
surface mineralization which has prompted the company to initiate line cutting
and geophysical surveys.

    Highlights of the surface grab sampling program include:

      -  1.28% Ni, 0.26% Cu, Glatz trench 3
      -  0.99% Ni, 0.18% Cu, Glatz trench 3
      -  0.39% Ni, 4.06% Cu, Glatz trench 4
      -  0.70% Ni, 0.37% Cu, Apex
      -  0.61% Ni, 0.11% Cu, Nielson Gauthier

    Glatz Property - Seven of twelve trenches from historic exploration
programs were located and sampled. The trenches are situated along 450m of the
historic 700m long trend. Sulphide mineralization has been identified in all
trenches with assay results returning values up to 1.28% Ni and 4.06% Cu. Past
exploration programs included geological mapping and geophysical surveys
however diamond drilling was not reported. The company has initiated line
cutting, with plans to follow up with geophysical surveys.

    Apex Occurrence - The Apex occurrence is located 8 km south of the
Kenbridge deposit. Apex has a historical non NI43-101 compliant resource
estimate of 237,600 tonnes of 0.56% Ni, 1.03% Cu(i) based on a limited amount
of diamond drilling. Historical trenches and diamond drill casings associated
with the deposit were relocated. Grab sample assay results returned 0.70% Ni,
0.37% Cu, 0.59% Ni, 0.61% Cu from a small surface exposure of the Apex
Occurrence. The zone is approximately 10 metres wide, has been traced for
200 metres in an east west direction and remains open to the east. Historical
drilling focused on a relatively small portion of the 1,500 metre long
magnetic anomaly which the Apex occurrence is associated.

    Nielsen Gauthier and Ross Creek Showings - The Nielsen Gauthier showing
is located 10 km south of the Kenbridge Deposit and consists of several
trenches, a number of unexplained induced polarization anomalies (IP), and a
historical drill hole that reportedly intersected 0.78% Cu over 15 metres. A
grab sample from the historical trench returned 0.61% Ni, 0.11% Cu. The
mineralization is interpreted to be associated with the large under explored
Denmark Lake Intrusion.

    A table of significant assay results is provided below.

    Todd Keast Vice President of Exploration, commented, "We are very
encouraged by these initial results from the regional exploration projects.
The grab sample assay results, the general geological setting and over all
extent of mineralization we're seeing on the Glatz, Apex and Neilson Gauthier
occurrences is similar to the results we've seen at surface exposures on the
Kenbridge Nickel Deposit. We've initiated ground geophysical surveys in order
to more accurately identify targets which will be tested by diamond drilling
during the upcoming winter exploration program. We will continue to acquire
projects of this high caliber which fit with Arrow's strategy of building
nickel sulphide resources in the vicinity of our flagship Kenbridge Nickel

    Analytical Method
    Samples are analyzed by ISO 17025 accredited Accurassay Laboratories in
Thunder Bay, Ontario. Samples analyzed for base metals (nickel, copper, and
cobalt) are digested using aqua regia with an atomic absorption finish.
    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.
    It should be noted that a qualified person from Arrow has not done
sufficient work to classify the historical estimate for the Apex property as
current mineral resources and the issuer is not treating the historical
estimate as current mineral resources. The historical estimate should not be
relied upon.
