    MONTREAL, March 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Malaga inc. (TSX : MLG) is very pleased
to announce that the most recent drilling data for the Pasto Bueno tungsten
mine has lead to the discovery of two new WO3 mineralized vein structures
located on both sides of the Consuelo vein - which is the main vein that is
currently being mined.
    On the western side of the Consuelo vein, drill hole HHD6 intercepted a
new vein (the Sauco vein) at a depth of 240 meters. The vein is made up of
quartz, iron oxides and hubnerite (a manganese rich wolframite - MnWO4).
Laboratory analysis revealed 0.29% WO3 over a 0.8 meter interval.
    Drill hole HHD6 also intercepted another new mineralized vein at a depth
of 285 meters - the Santa Marta vein. The vein is made up of quartz,
hubnerite, galena, tetrahedrite, pyrite, sericite and fluorite and returned a
WO3 concentration of 1.66% over a width of 0.7 meters.
    The Santa Marta vein was also intercepted by drill hole HHD8 which was
collared 75 meters south and 80 meters lower than drill hole HHD6. The
intercept at a depth of 302 meters returned a WO3 grade of 0.974% over
1.48 meters and was made up of quartz, fluorite, pyrite, hubnerite and
    Drill hole HHD7 was drilled east of the Consuelo vein between the Huaura
and Huayllapon sectors. A new vein (named Paraiso) was discovered at a depth
of 467 meters. This vein had a width of 0.27 meters and returned a tungsten
grade of 4.83% WO3. Geochemically this vein is very similar to others and is
made up of quartz, hubnerite, galena, tetrahedrite, pyrite, sericite and
    At a depth of 489 meters a veinlet with a width of 0,08 meters was
intercepted by drill hole HHD7 and had a grade of 1,98% WO3. This veinlet
contained quartz and hubnerite.

    Note: Drill hole HHD5 did not intersect the targeted zone.


    Santa Marta Vein

    The Santa Marta vein is a significant mineralized structure and its
discovery has led the Company's geological exploration team to focus its near
term exploration on this structure. Thus, two holes are currently being
drilled that are targeted on the Santa Marta vein. These results are expected
in the next few weeks and will be released as soon as they are available.

    Further Exploration Activities

    Drilling of the Chabuca vein in the Huayllapon sector and of the main
Consuelo vein are also planned for the near future.
    All chemical analysis were done by ALS CHEMEX laboratories in Lima and
samples for tungsten was analysed by the ME-XRF-10 method.
