International KRL Resources to begin drilling Ag-Pb-Zn target

    VANCOUVER, March 11 /CNW/ - International KRL Resources Corp. (the
"Company") (TSXV:IRK) today is pleased to announce that it has secured a
diamond drill contract for its Wolf project; a silver-lead-zinc target in the
southern Yukon Territory, 75 km west of Watson Lake. The property is road
accessible and site preparation has begun for the pending drill program;
expected to begin in the next few days. International KRL has an option to
earn a 60% interest in the Wolf project from Tarsis Capital Corp. (TSXV: TCC)
(see news release dated September 27, 2007).
    The drill target is a previously untested induced polarization (IP)
geophysical anomaly. The IP anomaly is made up of two parts, a large anomaly
indicative of a large buried sulphide body (at an estimated depth of 100 m and
up to 500 m wide) and a narrow coeval anomaly associated with the known
mineralization on the property. The known mineralization consists of an oxide
zone up to 30 m wide, which returned 4 m of 352.4 g/t Ag and 9.12% Pb in a
trench. Grab samples of oxide mineralization from another trench returned
1248.1 g/t Ag and 49.5% Pb and 978.7 g/t Ag and 32.0% Pb. The narrow anomaly
over the known mineralization indicates potentially wider zones of un-oxidized
(fresh) sulphides at depths of 50 m to 100 m. The entire anomaly indicates
potential for a large volume of sulphides in a zone at least 1700 m long and
up to 500 m wide.
    The exploration model for the Wolf property is a high-grade
silver-lead-zinc, manto-type, carbonate-hosted, replacement mineralization
like the nearby Silvertip deposit. At Silvertip the mineralization occurs in
channels reflected at Wolf by the narrow IP anomaly. The large IP anomaly at
Wolf is interpreted to indicate the 'chimney' zone often responsible for the
bulk of the mineralization in a manto-type deposit.
    The planned first phase of drilling consists of 1,500 m of HQ diamond
drill core and has been guaranteed by the contractor; DJ Drilling Ltd. DJ
Drilling Ltd. is a sought after drill company that has modern equipment,
experienced crews and a long-standing working relationship with International
KRL. International KRL has also been granted the first right of refusal to
renew the contract for the remainder of 2008.
