Creston Moly Corp. Infill drill program completed at El Creston deposit, Mexico

    VANCOUVER, June 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Creston Moly Corp. ("Creston" or the
"Company") (TSX-V: CMS) is pleased to announce it has completed an infill
drill program on the Main Zone of its El Creston Molybdenum deposit, Sonora,
    The program consisted of 52 diamond drill holes totalling 15,646 metres,
and was designed to upgrade inferred resources to the indicated category. The
infill drill program originally contemplated a 40 hole program, but was
augmented to investigate previously unidentified mineralized areas, especially
along the northern and eastern sectors of the deposit.
    Work by previous operators outlined an indicated resource of
92,873,000 tonnes grading 0.083% Mo containing 169.9 millions lbs. of
molybdenum and an inferred resource of 84,221,000 tonnes grading 0.076% Mo
containing 141.1 million lbs. of molybdenum (P & E Mining Consultants Inc.,
January 2008).
    A new resource calculation will be undertaken by Mine Development
Associates (MDA) of Reno, Nevada and it is expected to be completed by
September 2008.
    Drilling, utilizing one diamond drill rig, has now commenced on the Red
Hill Zone located approximately 300 metres southwest of the Main Zone. The Red
Hill Zone has been interpreted as a possible faulted extension of the Main
Zone, and will be tested initially by 10 widely spaced diamond drill holes to
an average depth of 200 metres.
    The drill program at El Creston is being supervised by Fabrizio Colombo,
PhD, P. Geo.
    At the newly discovered Alejandra Zone, situated two kilometres northeast
of the Main Zone, a program of detailed mapping and sampling is underway in
preparation for future drill testing. Numerous molybdenum bearing outcrops
have been discovered on the northeast flank of the Alejandra Zone.

    1. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have
       demonstrated economic viability. The estimates of mineral resources
       may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title,
       taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant issues.
    2. The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this
       estimation are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient
       exploration to define these inferred resources as an indicated or
       measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration
       will result in upgrading them to an indicated or measured mineral
       resource category.
    3. The mineral resources referred to herein have been estimated in an
       NI 43-101 technical report (the "P & E Report") prepared for the
       Company in January 2008 by independent qualified persons Eugene
       Puritch, P. Eng. and Dr. Wayne Ewert, P. Geo. of P&E Mining
       Consultants Inc. The P & E Report is available at
