Drill Program Commences – Nickel, Copper and Zinc Targets To Be Tested

MacDonald Mines has commenced drilling on its Butler (formerly McNugget) Property. MacDonald Mines' Vice President of Exploration Quentin Yarie, P.Geo is overseeing the exploration program and has joined the Company's on-site geologist, James Masters, at the camp on Butler. Presently in-camp as well are geologists Robin Chisholm, P.Geol., President, and Craig Scherba, P.Geol. of Taiga Consultants, as well as consulting geologist Dr. Larry Hulbert, P.Geo.

Employing two Cartwright diamond drills, the program will run for the next 4 weeks and will consist of approximately 3,700 metres of drilling. Focus will be on testing existing intersections at greater depths that were verified from the previous drill program, and intersecting a variety of new targets - up to 400 metres in depth. These new targets were identified by a detailed airborne Geophysics using Aeroquest International's AertoTEM IV system and was conducted after the previous drill program.

Six targets have been selected to test for VMS (copper/zinc) and several potential nickel targets in the area are currently being ranked by Robin Chisholm, Craig Scherba, Dr. Larry Hulbert and Quentin Yarie.
