Surface work shows extension of mineralization on BA property

    Trading Symbol: TSX-MTB

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. announces that
drilling has completed 17 holes on its 100 per cent owned BA property. 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 and DDH-2007-1 intersected 57.93 meters of 140.44 g/t
silver, 1.66 % lead and 2.51 % zinc.
    In addition preliminary geological mapping indicates that there is
anticlinal feature through the Kuroko-type VMS system composed of an exhalite
horizon with related zinc-lead-silver mineralization in felsic rocks. The
sulphide rich horizon dips gently to the west of the feature but steeply to
the east of the anticline. Work along the east limb yielded significant silver
and zinc values in grab sampling along mineralized zones that are up to
20 meters wide at the edge of a glacier. This grab sampling is 600 meters
north of the present drilling. Values obtained are as follows:

                   Sample    Type        Ag     Pb     Zn
                   No.                  g/t      %      %
                   No. 3     grab      64.5   0.13   4.09
                   No. 4     grab     118.0   4.78   3.12
                   No. 5     grab      42.7    0.9   5.70

    In the course of building an access road for the water supply, 200 meters
away from present drilling on the east side of the anticline, sulphide rich
felsic rocks were exposed over a width of 40 meters in a road cut. Chip
sampling indicated 164 g/t silver, 4.05 % lead and 4.55 % zinc over 5 meters.
The total exposure of mineralization is over 600 meters along the west limb
and 1000 meters along the east limb. The mineralization is open along strike
and to depth.
