Jasper Mining Corporation continues drill program on McFarlane property

    Trading Symbol: JSP (TSX-V)

    CALGARY, Dec. 11 /CNW/ - Jasper Mining Corporation (the "Company") is
continuing its diamond drill program on its 100% owned McFarlane property. A
total of 16 holes have been completed to date, with another 6 anticipated for
completion in the immediate future. A total of approximately 2,000 metres of
core has been recovered from holes completed from a total of 6 pads. The holes
have been drilled 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).
    To date only visual examination has been made of the drill core and
associated mineralization recovered during the program. Mineralization
consists of quartz plus/minus pyrite plus/minus molybdenite, associated with
potassic alteration comprised of sericite and/or potassium feldspar. High
grade intervals to 1 cm thick of apparently pure molybdenite have been
identified. Quartz plus pyrite veins with molybdenite have been identified
over intervals up to 2 m thick (may not be thickness). Molybdenite is present
predominantly as coarse disseminations to thin fracture fillings to
approximately 1 cm thick. Drilling to date has concentrated on the area
between the two adits identified on the property and the molybdenite-bearing
veins chip sampled earlier this year (see Press Release dated October 22,
2007). Management is encouraged with the visual mineralization of the cores
and expects to have assays early in 2008.
    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 and McFarlane properties are 100% owned by the
Company with potential for molybdenum plus copper plus/minus gold
