    STEWART, BC, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
assays for the first hole on the BA claims have been received for the 2007
drilling exploration program and it has intersected high zinc-lead-silver
values. The BA claims are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena mining
    Drilling is being conducted in a grid pattern measuring 15 by 15 meters
in order to provide data for a resource calculation at the end of the 2007
drill program. Based on the positive results from this early drilling, a
second drill has been mobilized to the project.
    The mineralized zone is located in the upper parts of Bear Glacier within
the same stratigraphic horizon as that which hosts the Eskay Creek deposit.
The company believes that the zone represents a portion of a Kuroko-type
volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) system composed of an exhalite horizon
with related zinc-lead-silver mineralization. Mineralization occurs below the
main exhalite horizon and is located within mudstones, mudstone breccias and
dacite breccias. Mineralized rocks are at least 40 meters to 50 meters wide
and mineralization can be traced for over 1 kilometer of strike length and is
open along strike and to depth.
    Prospecting has also located a zone of massive bedded sphalerite over 3
meters wide approximately 200 meters north of the present drilling. Further
prospecting, sampling and geological mapping will be conducted in this new
discovery area.
