Jasper Mining Corporation Commences Follow-Up Drill Program on McFarlane Property

    Trading Symbol: JSP (TSX-V)

    CALGARY, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - Jasper Mining Corporation (the "Company") is
pleased to announce it has commenced a diamond drill program on its McFarlane
property. A total of 9 drill pads have been approved, intended to test a high
grade molybdenite vein system previously reported in two adits (Ben Derby
MINFILE occurrence 082FNE125) and the Company's previous drill programs
(previously reported in News Releases dated July 27, 2006 and July 4, 2007).
In addition, a grid has been completed preparatory to a ground IP survey
tentatively scheduled to commence in the next month. This program is expected
to provide valuable information on the vein system, its orientation and
continuity (both along strike and at depth) as well as variations in
molybdenum grade.
    The first hole was collared last week and is intended to continue
evaluation of high grade molybdenite-bearing veins previously reported. The
program consists of 9 approved drill pads. Shallower and steeper holes may be
drilled from each pad so as to test the extent of the vein system and also
determine the down-dip continuity.
    The IP survey will be conducted on a grid consisting of 11 lines oriented
perpendicular to the trend of the molybdenite-bearing veins. This initial
geophysical test program will consist of a detailed 3D Induced Potential
survey, intended to evaluate the response of high grade, molybdenite-bearing
quartz veins in relation to host rocks.
    In the course of preparing the survey grid, the second reported adit of
the Ben Derby MINFILE occurrence was located. The adit follows a quartz plus
sericite plus molybdenite vein approximately 30 cm thick trending eastward
into the hillside. The adit comprising the Ben Derby occurrence are located
generally along the same trend, however, it has not been determined if they
represent adits along the same (single) vein or are adits along a layered vein
    The property is adjacent to, and is contiguous with, the Company's Lydy
property. Together, the Lydy and McFarlane properties comprise a composite
property of 4,259 ha (10,524 acres), encompassing an area 11 km east-west by
4 km north-south. Both the Lydy property (1,201 ha; 2,968 acres) and the
McFarlane property (3,058 ha; 7,556 acres) are 100% owned by the Company and
shows potential for molybdenum plus copper plus/minus gold mineralization.
