Mountain Boy Minerals Begins Drilling at Dunwell Gold Mine

Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MTB) reports that drilling has commenced at its wholly owned Dunwell Gold Mine. Drilling is being conducted to expand the area of mineralization on the previously announced discovery zone.

The primary purpose will be to test the potential for depth and strike extensions. Drilling will test between 170 and 260 metres below the lowest mining level to date. The mineralization that is from 6-10 metres in true width is open in all directions. The company hopes to expand the mineralization a minimum of 250 metres of length and 250 metres of depth. Breccia zones and quartz-sulphide veins are developed en echelon and adjacent to a major north striking, west dipping fault zone (West fault). The veins are commonly situated along one or both sides of parallel lamprophyre dykes which are up to 0.6 metres wide.

Core intersection widths are interpreted as being true width given the dip of the mineralized zone.

Core is being logged and assay results will be released upon receipt.

The Dunwell Gold Mine is a former producing gold mine, located 7.5 kilometres northeast of Stewart BC, 2 kilometres off paved highway 37A. The property has excellent infrastructure. Additionally, the relatively low elevation allows for year round exploration.

Ed Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of exploration on behalf of the company. All assaying is being carried out by Assayers Canada in their Vancouver facilities.
