Pacific North West Capital Corp. & SOQUEM Thunder Target Update

    Frankfurt: P7J

    -   Initial trenching results at the Thunder target return anomalous
    -   The mineralization is associated with the Cheneville mafic intrusive

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Pacific North West Capital Corp. (PFN) (TSX:
PFN; OTCBB: PAWEF; Frankfurt: P7J) - is pleased to announce that it has
received the report from SOQUEM on the channel sampling program for the new
Thunder occurrence in the Cheneville claim group in Québec. This occurrence is
the result of ground truthing conductors defined by the airborne EM (AEM) and
magnetic survey flown in 2007. The sulphide mineralization is hosted by a
mafic intrusion and is 18 kilometres west of the original Cheneville showing
(average 1.17gpt Pd, 0.14gpt Pt, 0.29gpt Au, 1.62 Cu, and 0.35% Ni). Initial
trenching in the Thunder showing discovered a sulphide bearing zone along the
contact of an anorthositic gabbro and sedimentary rocks. Values of up to
0.74 g/t of Pt + Pd, 0.16% Ni, and anomalous Cu were obtained from the contact
zone. The width and strike length of the new zone has not been defined,
however, the geophysical data suggests that it may be structurally enhanced
and extend along strike for some distance. Follow up programs are being
planned. The Thunder target is part of the 50-50 cooperation agreement with
SOQUEM INC. which includes the Cheneville and Taureau areas. SOQUEM is the
project operator.
    Additional channel sampling is being completed on the Chenneville Showing
to determine if drilling is warranted this year.
    The Taureau Reconnaissance Program is continuing to evaluate the mafic
intrusions for PGM mineralization in the defined Area of Mutual Interest (AMI)
within the Grenville Province of Québec and is expected to be completed in
early Fall.
    In 2006, PFN signed a Cooperation Agreement with SOQUEM Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of the Société Générale de Financement du Québec. Under the
terms of the Agreement, PFN and SOQUEM are participating in a 50/50 joint
venture with the objective of identifying viable PGM and base metal properties
for further exploration within the AMI.
