J-Pacific Identifies a Possible Southern Extension of the Giant Vein at Blackdome

    Surface sampling of quartz float returns 0.30 to 9.32g Au/t

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - J-Pacific Gold Inc. ("J-Pacific";
TSXV - JPN, OTCBB - JPNJF) said today reconnaissance work undertaken during
the 2007 Phase 2 drill program at the Blackdome Gold Mine resulted in the
identification of a possible southern extension to the past producing Giant
Vein: <a href="http://files.newswire.ca/357/blackdome.pdf">http://files.newswire.ca/357/blackdome.pdf</a>
    Four grab samples collected from an area 1 kilometre north of the
Blackdome mill site may represent the continuation of the Giant Vein
approximately 1 kilometre southwest of where extensive drilling had been
completed during the late 1980's. A sample of quartz vein material in float
returned 9.32g Au/t. Grab samples taken from an outcrop of 0.5m wide quartz
vein ran 1.90 and 0.30g Au/t. In addition, a sample of moderate intensity,
bleached, crackle breccia found 100 metres from the vein outcrop returned
2.99g Au/t.
    This area had been targeted by recent consultation reviews as a possible
area of structural intersection similar to productive sections of the No. 1
and 2 Veins. John Harrop, J-Pacific's Senior Geologist was particularly
pleased with these initial results. "We made a preliminary reconnaissance of
the area with the expectation of needing a geochemical survey to locate any
veins. Locating prospective veins and breccia in outcrop so near to the
predicted structural intersection has significantly increased the priority of
this exploration target."
    The Giant Vein was one of the very first gold bearing veins discovered at
Blackdome. The vein has some gold production history from trenches were zones
reached the surface. Part of the current resource at Blackdome is based on
results of drilling along 800 metres of the Giant Vein.
    In addition, two float samples collected from the Airport Vein, located
northwest of the Giant Vein returned 2.66 and 2.04g Au/t. The first of the two
samples selected quartz vein material, while the second focused on wall rock
and crackle breccia. The Airport Vein was explored in the early stages of the
area, but received little attention during the life of the mine in the 1980's.
    A map illustrating the relative location of the projected extension of
the Giant Vein is posted on the J-Pacific website.


    Located in the Clinton Mining District of British Columbia, approximately
250 kilometres north of Vancouver and some 70 kilometres west-northwest of the
town of Clinton, the Blackdome Gold Mine yielded 240,000 ounces of gold from
338,000 tonnes of ore between 1986 and 1991.
    Currently, the Blackdome Gold Mine has an inferred mineral resource
(A. Boronowski, 1999), as reclassified by SRK Consulting (2001), of
124,120 tonnes, averaging 12.8g Au/t and 33.7g Ag/t and totalling
50,834 ounces of gold and 134,386 ounces of silver. The infrastructure and
processing facilities remain at the mine, as do the majority of permits for
    Coast Mountain Geological Ltd., a Vancouver-based geological services
consulting company, is undertaking the exploration program under the
supervision of Mr. John Harrop P.Geo. Mr. Harrop is J-Pacific's Senior
Geologist and the qualified person for this project as defined by NI 43-101
regulations, and has reviewed and approved this news release.
