J-Pacific Intersects 37.5g Au/t over 11.2 metres at the Elizabeth Southwest Gold Vein

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - J-Pacific Gold Inc.
("J-Pacific"; TSXV - JPN, OTCBB - JPNJF) said today that it had intersected
37.5g Au/t over 11.2 metres (1.09oz Au/t over 37.0 feet) at its Elizabeth Gold
Property, located in the Lillooet Mining District of British Columbia,
approximately 220 kilometres (135 miles) north of Vancouver.
    In making the announcement today, Nick Ferris, J-Pacific's President and
CEO, said, "This is the just the first of 12 holes to report from the 2007
Elizabeth drill program. We look forward to the results of the remaining drill
holes with great anticipation."
    Mr. Ferris also noted that the Elizabeth Gold Property is centrally
located in prospective terrain 30 kilometres (18 miles) south-southwest of the
permitted mill at the J-Pacific-owned Blackdome Gold Mine, and 30 kilometres
(18 miles) north-northeast of the historic gold mining town of Bralorne, where
over four million ounces of gold have been produced. "We're extremely
fortunate that the Elizabeth Gold Property's proximity to the permitted gold
mill at J-Pacific's Blackdome Gold Mine means any eventual production from
Elizabeth could be accommodated at the Blackdome facility, adding to any
future production at Blackdome," said Mr. Ferris, pointed out that the high
grades identified in several veins at the Elizabeth Property as well as its
location make it an attractive exploration target that can be rapidly
    In response to the results, John Harrop P.Geo., J-Pacific's senior
geologist, said, "We are very pleased. The presence of visible gold in core,
coupled with the width of the intersection, enabled us to use subsequent holes
to test the orientation of this emerging zone. The J-Pacific technical team is
studying the significance of the new results in targeting prospective
mineralized zones along the Southwest and adjacent veins."
    Maps illustrating the relative position of drill hole E07-43 with respect

    The 2007 drill program comprises 14 holes, totalling approximately
1,725 metres. Twelve of the 14 holes successfully reached their intended
targets. The drilling focused on infill drilling, to connect areas of known
mineralization in the Southwest Zone, with the goal of developing sufficient
new data to support a geological estimate of potential mineral resources.
    Replicate samples were analyzed for all intervals discussed in this news
release. Analytical work was performed by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd of
Vancouver, Canada, an ISO 9001 certified company. Assay work is supervised by
British Columbia Certified Assayers. Samples submitted to Acme were dried and
then crushed to 70% passing through a 10 mesh screen (2 millimetre or smaller
fragments). Splits of 500 grams were taken from this material and pulverized
so that 95% of the material passed through a 150 mesh screen. A 30 gram sample
was taken for fire assay from the fine fraction. The coarse fraction was
weighed and all coarse material used for assay. A weighted average was used to
combine the results to represent the gold content of the 500 gram sample. Two
500 gram samples if the initial crush were used to replicate the analysis.
Some difference in gold levels is expected due to the natural gold variation
within the sample. Variation between the replicates was within expected ranges
and the weighted average of the combined intervals did not differ
significantly. Details of the individual assays may be found on the J-Pacific
web site.
    Coast Mountain Geological Ltd., a Vancouver-based geological services
consulting company, is undertaking the exploration program under the
supervision of John Harrop P.Geo, J-Pacific's Senior Geologist and the
qualified person for this project as defined by NI 43-101 regulations, who has
reviewed and approved this news release.
    From time to time, J-Pacific raises exploration funds from the issue of
flow-through shares. This latest drilling program was made possible in part by
flow-through financing arranged with the MineralFields Group.
