Cline Lake Gold Diamond Drill Results Announced


    TORONTO, July 11 /CNW/ - Cline Mining Corporation ("Cline" or the
"Company") (TSX:CMK) is pleased to announce that is has completed the
follow-up drill program on the 88-60 and 07-10 gold bearing zones on its Cline
Gold Project located near Wawa, Ontario, Canada. The Cline Gold Project is
located along the Goudreau Lake Deformation Zone, a major, regional
gold-bearing, structure and is situated approximately 5 kilometers east of the
Island Gold Mine operated by Richmont Mines Ltd (TSX:RIC,AMEX:  RIC) and
Patricia Gold Mines (TSX:PAT).

    Follow-up Drill Program on the 88-60 and 07-10 Zones

    In late 2007 a follow-up diamond drill program commenced to further
define and attempt to expand the 88-60 and 07-10 Zones (see Press Release
dated April 24th, 2008). This drill program was completed earlier this month.
Twenty four (24) holes totalling approximately 3637 meters were drilled to
test the 88-60 and Lake Porphyry Zones while fourteen (14) holes totalling
approximately 3225 meters were designed to test the 07-10 Zone and the nearby
Number 3 Shaft Zone.
    Significant assay results received since the April 24th, 2008 news
release are given in the table below.

    note: true widths are currently estimated at 60-80% of drilled widths.

    Infill Sampling Program

    As mentioned in the April 24th, 2008 press release Cline has also begun
infill sampling of the drill core in and around the known gold intercepts.
Material change(s), received to date, from the original assay results include:
12.02 gpt Au over 5.9 meters from CL 08-36 (original interval split returned
14.22 gpt Au over 0.61 meters).
    Cline is still awaiting assay results from over 400 infill samples as
well as ~250 samples from the nine most recently drilled holes.

    Sample Preparation, Analyses and Security

    The aforementioned assay and sample information as well as geological
descriptions are taken from drill logs as prepared by the project geologists
for the drill program. All drill cores are BQ in size and assays are completed
on split half-cores, with the second half of the core kept for future
reference. The samples are put into rice bags which are sealed with security
locks for shipping directly to Swastika Laboratories, an accredited assay
laboratory, in Swastika, Ontario. The samples are analysed using standard fire
assay procedures with an AA finish. In addition to the standard quality
control of the laboratory, a series of blanks and standards are inserted in
every shipment for quality control purposes.
