International KRL intersects copper and maps uranium structure at NOR IOCG Project

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 6 /CNW/ - International KRL Resources Corp. (TSXV:IRK)
today announced the encouraging results of the 2007 exploration program on its
100%-owned (subject to a 2% NSR), 448 claim (9,360 ha) Nor Project, located
just east of the Dempster Hwy, 300 km northeast of Dawson City, Yukon
Territory. The 2007 exploration program involved 1,188 metres of diamond
drilling in seven holes; a high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric
survey, as well as mapping and prospecting.
    Highlights from the 2007 diamond drill program include 0.20% Cu over
64.95 m, including 31.95 m of 0.29% Cu, which includes 15 m of 0.38% Cu in
hole NOR-07-15 and 3 m of 0.42% Cu in hole NOR-07-14. The copper
mineralization intersected by holes NOR 07-14 and -15 is close to surface at
the contact between the Wernecke Breccia and the Fairchild Lake Group Rocks
and is open along strike and at depth. A map of the drill hole locations and
highlighted sections may be viewed at
    Holes NOR 07-12 to NOR 07-15 targeted the contact zone between a body of
Wernecke Breccia with the surrounding Fairchild Lake Group Rocks, within which
copper mineralization was intersected in 2006 (0.25% Cu over 20 m from hole
NOR 06-09) (see News Release November 7, 2006). Key results from the 2007
diamond drill program, calculated as weighted averages, are summarized below:

     Hole No.           From (m)       To (m)        Interval (m)     Cu (%)
    NOR 07-14            34.0           45.0             11.0          0.14
    including            35.0           38.0              3.0          0.42
    NOR 07-15            3.05           68.0            64.95          0.20
    including            3.05           35.0            31.95          0.29
    (which includes)     20.0           35.0             15.0          0.38
    including            44.0           68.0             24.0          0.14

    The Wernecke Breccias in the Yukon are well known for Iron Oxide Copper
Gold (IOCG) mineralization. Significant mineralization associated with
Wernecke Breccia on other properties in the Yukon include; 213.05 m. of 0.175%
Cu on the Slab Creek property and a "potential" of 18 million tonnes grading
0.35% Cu at Slab Mountain based on 3 diamond drill holes and surface sampling
(Thorkelson et al, 2002). The 18 million tonne amount and 0.35% Cu grade are
for information purposes only and do not comply with NI43-101 mineral resource
criterion. On the NOR property the Wernecke Breccia body measures
approximately 2.1 km by 1.7 km in size and only a small portion of the breccia
body and its contact with the country rocks has been tested by drilling so
    Holes NOR 07-10, NOR 07-11 and NOR 07-16 targeted coincident uranium
geochemical and uranium radiometric geophysical anomalies in the south part of
the property. Further evidence of uranium mineralization was observed in
surface samples and hand trenches in the Wernecke Breccia body, with values of
1.3% to 5.54% U(3)O(8) from grab samples mapped over a strike length of more
than 1.1 km (see News Release September 10, 2007). The indicated uranium
structure was not targeted in the 2007 drill program. Mechanized trenching
might be necessary to overcome overburden and permafrost to determine the
tenor and orientation of the uranium mineralization, which will be the focus
of the next exploration programme.
    The high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey completed in
2007 identified a buried intrusive indicated towards the eastern portion of
the property. Elevated radiometric potassium values in the southeast survey
support this. Further, the Wernecke Breccia exposure corresponds to a
magnetically active zone, likely due to alteration and/or faulting.
    All samples were analyzed for copper using ICP by Eco Tech Laboratory of
Kamloops British Columbia, an ISO accredited laboratory. Standard quality
control procedures were employed and the Company inserted one standard in
every 50 samples sent to the laboratory.
