Wildcat Exploration Announces Technical Advisory Panel

    WEL - TSXV

    WINNIPEG, Sept. 12 /CNW/ - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSXV-WEL) is pleased
to announce the appointment of Mark Fedikow, Ph.D., P. Geo. and Paul G. Spry,
Ph.D. to its newly-formed Technical Advisory Panel.
    Dr. Fedikow received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of
Windsor and subsequently received a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council of Canada scholarship to attend the School of Applied Geology at the
University of New South Wales, Australia where he was awarded a Ph.D. in
Exploration Geochemistry.
    In his career, Dr. Fedikow has worked for a number of junior and major
mining companies as well as the Manitoba Geological Survey where he was
Chief Geologist of the Mineral Deposits section, working in all of the
significant mining camps in Manitoba. In 2001, he received the
Provincial Geologists' Gold Medal, a national Canadian award in the
geosciences. Dr. Fedikow had input to Wildcat's recent mobile metal ions
surveys on the Foster River Zinc Project in Saskatchewan and its gold and
nickel-copper-platinum-palladium projects in the Reed Lake Greenstone Belt of
Manitoba, which resulted in new information that the Company is using to
interpret and advance those projects.
    Dr. Spry is a professor in the Department of Geological and Atmospheric
Sciences, Iowa State University. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the
University of Adelaide, South Australia, and he earned his doctorate at the
University of Toronto.
    Dr. Spry, who has co-authored three books and numerous refereed papers
and abstracts, is an internationally recognized expert on the genesis of ore
deposits. His work on the geology and geochemistry of the Broken Hill orebody
in Australia and similar mineralization around the world is particularly
relevant to Wildcat's Foster River Project. Samples obtained from this
property during the 2007 summer exploration program are currently undergoing
geochemical, petrological, and mineralogical analysis under the direction of
Dr. Spry.
    "Mark and Paul are eminent explorationists and we are pleased to have
attracted experts of their stature to our Technical Advisory Panel," commented
John Knowles, President and CEO of Wildcat. "We look forward to receiving
their input as we advance Wildcat's current holdings and evaluate potential
new projects."
