YOW Capital Clarifies News on Acquisition of Advanced-Stage Copper Project

    OTTAWA, Aug. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - The company wishes to clarify and amend the
news release sent out on August 6, 2008 by deleting the comment "we believe
could be brought into production within a few years" as a current economic
analysis has not been done and revising the press release to read as follows:
    YOW Capital Corp. ("YOW.p") is pleased to announce that it has entered
into a letter of intent ("LOI") with 1618254 Ontario Ltd. ("161"), an arm's
length party, to acquire all of its issued and outstanding shares on a
one-for-one share exchange basis with YOW common shares. Management of 161 has
indicated to YOW that it expects 161's shareholders to support the sale of the
company and to tender their shares at closing. In the event the parties are
able to negotiate a definitive agreement, the acquisition is expected to
constitute the company's "Qualifying Transaction" as defined by TSX Venture
Exchange policies.
    161 holds an option from C-D Development Corporation (the "Optionor") to
acquire all of the Optionor's right, title and interest in and to an advanced
stage copper project consisting of 31 mining claims (the "Property") totaling
1360 acres in the Talkeetna mining district of Alaska, free and clear of all
encumbrances, by paying the sum of $1,720,806 over four years.
    YOW President Paul Barbeau states "We are excited to have found a project
with so much potential that we believe can be expanded through future
exploration." Following its acquisition, the Company will focus on proving up
the mineral deposit and obtaining a current economic analysis.
    The Property, known as the Caribou Dome Project, is located in the far
northern portion of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough of South-Central Alaska,
approximately 160 miles northeast of Anchorage, on the south side of the
Alaska range, within 25 km of the Denali Highway, and about 8 km east of the
Valdez Creek placer gold mine.
    Historic exploration and development work on the Property from the
discovery in 1963 through 1971 defined a near surface, high grade copper
resource hosted by nine (9) major chalcopyrite and pyrite bearing lodes along
with numerous smaller lodes that have been explored by trenching and over
36,000 feet of surface and underground drilling from over 230 core and
percussion holes. In addition to the extensive drilling and testing, an adit,
consisting of 1189 feet of underground workings and a decline consisting of
1706 feet of underground workings, were driven by Alaska Exploration Syndicate
(AES) into three of the lodes to expose the mineralization at depth and to
provide drill stations for further explorations. A long sectional resource of
550,400 tons of mineralized rock grading 5.84% copper, delineated by the
drilling and underground workings, was calculated by R. H Saraphim Engineering
Limited in 1970 on only three (3) of the nine (9) copper bearing lodes. These
lodes are currently open to depth. The other six lodes have not been
drill-tested with enough detail to calculate a resource but are known to
contain significant copper mineralization. A qualified person has not done
sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral
resources, the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current
mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.
    Significant 161 shareholders include Cathy Fong who served as President
of Silvercorp Metals, Inc. in 2006-2007, and David Lajack, who serves on the
board of several mining companies including Andover Ventures Inc., Geo
Minerals Ltd, and Alix Resources Corp.

    proposed transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the
    contents of this press release. The TSX Venture Exchange Inc. does not
    accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

to significant risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Actual
results might differ materially from results suggested in any forward-looking
