Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. - Drilling is Proceeding on Three Different properties

    Trading Symbol: TSX-MTB

    STEWART, BC, Sept. 6 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. announces that
drilling is proceeding on three different properties; namely the BA, Red Cliff
and MB.

    BA Property: A drill has been mobilized to the BA property and a system
of close spaced holes 15 meters on a grid pattern apart will be completed in
order to provide the data for a resource calculation. An excavator has been
flown into the property in order to build trails along the grid, build drill
pad locations and move the drill between set ups.
    The BA property hosts a zone representing a portion of a Kuroko-type VMS
system composed of an exhalite horizon with related zinc-lead-silver
mineralization in felsic rocks. Drilling is concentrating on the southwest
portion of this system where drilling in 2006 indicated 10.31 meters of
152.19 g/t silver 4.67 % lead and 4.05 % zinc.
    The main exhalite horizon is 40 to 50 meters wide and can be traced for
over 1 kilometer of width. Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2931
indicates that the favorable horizon occurs within a syncline that is up to
3 kilometers across. At present, this mineralized horizon is being drill
tested on the west limb of the above syncline.

    Redcliff Zone: this zone contains 2,300 m of underground development on
5 levels from 4 portals over a height of several hundred meters with limited
Cu-Au production reported in 1910-12 and 1973. From 1910 - 12 production from
the Redcliff zone amounted to approximately 1,136 tonnes estimated to average
5% Cu. In 1972 some 3,776 tonnes of ore was sent to a local mill. The only
reserve estimate reported for the Redcliff Zone was in 1912 showing a total of
18,900 tonnes averaging 3.19% Cu and 2.86 grams per tonne gold. This estimate
was only for broken mineralized material within a stope on one of the levels
in the mine. This estimate is historical and is not 43-101 compliant and is
used for reference purposes only.
    Drilling during 2007 has extended the earlier defined zones well below
the lowest working from the previous work as well as indicating that
4 separate zones of copper -gold mineralization are present. Phase II drilling
is concentrating to the west and at depth to the early underground work as
well as Phase I drilling (see September 4, 2007 press release)

    MB Property: Between 1929 and 1938, the MB property produced 60 tons of
hand cobbed material that yielded an average 546.8 oz/ton silver, 3.2 % copper
and 3.15 % lead per ton of ore. In 1940, mining extracted 3.08 tons grading an
average 0.09 oz/to gold, 248 oz/ton silver, 2.2 % copper, 4.9 % lead and 5.8 %
zinc. In 1999, Mountain Boy Minerals extracted a 13.6 tonne (15 ton) sample
from the High Grade vein with results from the smelter indicating a value of
18,854-grams/tonne silver (550 oz/ton), 1.1 % zinc and 2.5 % lead for this
shipment. Drilling in 2006 yielded 5.18 meters of 5258.0 g/tonne silver in

43-101 and is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the company.

    Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd is a Canadian based mineral exploration company
whose activities are in the Stewart and McKenzie area of BC. It is actively
exploring for gold-silver-base metals on the Silver Coin project, silver-base
metals on their American Creek properties, copper-gold in the Stewart area,
porphyry molybdenum in the Stewart and McKenzie areas and
copper-nickel-platinum group metals in the McKenzie area.
