X-Terra Resources discovers gold in Northern Quebec


    VANCOUVER, Feb. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - X-Terra Resources Corporation (XT-TSXV)
has received 2008 till sample results for the Lindsay property in Northern
Quebec. The results indicated some very interesting till anomalies with up to
1.22 grams per tonne of gold. The company is highly encouraged by the results
and will follow up on this program with more till geochemistry, ground
prospecting and ground geophysics. The 100% owned Villedieu-Lindsay properties
are located approximately 130 kilometres south of Rouyn-Noranda and
100 kilometres northwest of North Bay along the Quebec-Ontario border. The
property is located approximately midway between the Elliot Lake uranium camp
and the Abitibi gold belt camp.
    The region has been targeted for its gold-uranium association, based on
the occurrence of regional gold anomalies in stream sediments. The 2007
exploration program consisted of 76 till samples on a 1,000 metre by 500 metre
grid, conducted on a portion of the area covered by the government airborne
survey. The objective of the till sampling was to delineate isolated heavy
mineral concentrate gold anomalies.


    - One sample returned 1.22 g/t;
    - Four samples over 0.2g/t or 200 parts per billion;
    - One sample between 100 to 200 ppb;
    - Eighteen samples between 21 to 50 ppb;

    A radiometric survey for uranium is also planned on the northern portion
of the property. A further airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey, on
100 metre spacing combined with a diamond drill program to test gold and
uranium targets will be executed in 2008. To view a location map of the
