Carlisle Goldfields Limited - Drilling at Maclellan Gold Mine continues to intersect multiple high grade intervals

    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Carlisle Goldfields Limited's Phase 11
Diamond drilling program at the MacLellan Gold Mine, in Lynn Lake, Manitoba
has been completed. A total of 21 drillholes, were completed for a total of
approximately 8,794 metres. Over 2,400 drill core samples remain outstanding
at this time, and assay returns are taking in excess of 6 weeks, additional
results are expected shortly. Once all assay data has been received and
compiled into the database a review of the Resource Statement will be
undertaken. Drilling is expected to re-commence in the fall, targeting areas
within the resource area and stepping out to locate new resources East and
West of the MacLellan Mine.
    The 2008 Drilling program has been testing all of the zones at the
MacLellan Mine from the Nisku Zone on the east to the Dot zone on the west,
and below the mine workings. Additional mineralization has been targeted to
the south of the mine area as well. Drilling in the Rainbow Zone has provided
a number of intervals with visible gold.
    Drilling continues to intersect high grades and multiple zones in both
the Nisku and Main zones. The frequency of higher grade intervals and of
visible gold occurrences is greater than in previous drilling programs,
suggesting that both grade and consistency of the mineralization are improving
to depth.
    Assay results are available for drillhole MG-08-02, which intersected a
wide zone of mineralization, including a number of higher grade intervals in
the lower Nisku Zone. Drillhole MG08-04 intersected low gold and silver values
in a gap in mineralization to the east of the Nisku zone, under-explored gold
values remain further east of this location. Drillhole MG08-11 intersected low
gold and silver values in a poorly mineralized area between the East Main and
Nisku zones. Drillhole MG08-12 confirmed the East Main at deeper levels.
Drillhole MG08-16A cut a number of higher grade intervals, within a broad
mineralized zone, deep in the Main zone. Many of these intervals are outside
of the area in which the recently published resource is contained and will
contribute to enlarging the resource and upgrading from Inferred to Indicated
    Silver values continue to be found in the assay intervals with the Gold,
up to 3 times the gold content. It is anticipated that silver values will
contribute in a major way to the economics of a future mining operation.

    (*) true width will be about 85-90 % of core length.

    Drill core is logged, and saw split, on site. One half of the NQ diameter
core is shipped to TSL Laboratories, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, "an ISO
9001:2000" accredited laboratory, for analysis. TSL protocols include fire
assay for Au and Ag with an ICP finish on a crushed and pulverized sub-sample.
The MDL and upper detection limits (UDL) for Au are 5 - 1000 ppb under this
protocol, and 0.2 - 50 ppb for Ag. Above the UDL a gravimetric method is used
for determination on high concentrations. A quality control program has been
implemented to ensure best practices in the sampling and analysis of the drill
core. Certified control standards, and coarse field blanks were inserted into
the sample stream. A program of analysis of duplicate samples will be
undertaken. Mr. Stephen Mlot, P. Eng., the President of the Company, is the
qualified person for this press release.
