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

    TORONTO, Aug. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Carlisle Goldfields' (TSX: CGJ) 2008
Drilling program has been testing all of the known zones at the MacLellan Mine
from the Nisku Zone on the east, to the Rainbow zone on the west, and below
the mine workings. Drilling in the relatively under-drilled Rainbow Zone has
provided a number of intervals with visible gold. This continues to be an area
of interest for development of additional resources outside of the current
resource envelope. Currently the deposit remains open along strike and
down-dip. Significant gold mineralization to date has been encountered for 1.2
kilometres along strike and 500 metres down-dip.
    Carlisle plans to commence a large scale geophysics program to aid in the
delineation of the possible strike extension of the known zones and to locate
possible targets in an area of similar geology immediately to the south of the
mine area. This is targeted for September 2008.
    The resource modeling recently completed has improved our understanding
of the distribution of the gold mineralization within the resource envelope.
This results in a higher percentage of the metres drilled intersecting
significant gold values. Several occurrences of visible gold in the drill core
have been noted by company geologists. The table below summarizes the
significant results from a portion of the drilling completed. Further results
are pending which will allow the company to update the existing NI 43-101
compliant resource estimate. Current plans are to initiate a scoping study in
mid September 2008.
    We have received assay results for drill hole MG-08-06 and MG08-14, which
intersected zones of higher grade intervals in the Rainbow Zone. Drill hole
MG08-07 intersected a number of significant grade intervals in the Nisku zone.
Drill hole MG08-10 testing a historic intersection north of the East Main
zone, intersected low gold and silver values. Drill hole MG08-12 confirmed the
East Main at deeper levels. Drill hole MG08-13 intersected gold
mineralization, west of the Main zone at depth.
    Silver values continue to be associated in the assay intervals with the
gold. It is anticipated that the silver content will contribute directly to
the economics of a future mining operation.

objective is to further define and increase the resource base on all of the
Company's Lynn Lake Properties (including MacLellan) to the 800,000 to
1,200,000 ounce level. The recently announced Resource Estimate for the
MacLellan Mine is an important step towards this objective. Additional details
