MOUNTAIN BOY ANNOUNCES RED CLIFF , MB PROPERTY & BA DRILL PROGRAM UPDATE

Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. has completed phase 1 of the Red Cliff project with 29 holes drilled totalling 18,526 feet. Partial assay results are due next week.

Drilling has now begun on the MB property with three drills turning.

An extensive drill program is also planned for the BA claims once the permits are in place.

E. Kruchkowski, PGeo, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 and is in charge of the exploration program on behalf of the company.
Boy, a lot of juniors out there would love to have 3 drills working.
Lets have a boo at some history with the MB property.Mineralization on the property consists of at least seven main (Mann, High Grade, No. 3, DeMann, Franmar, Four Bees and South Mann) and four minor (North, WoMann, Waterfall and Fault Breccia) replacement zones tested with trenches, previous open cuts and/or adits. The mineralization occurs along wide bodies consisting of mainly barite, quartz, jasper, carbonates (calcite, siderite, rhodochrosite and possibly smithsonite and witherite) and sulfides (sphalerite, galena and minor chalcopyrite, bornite, tetrahedrite, jamesonite, covellite acanthite, stromeyerite and greenockite) as well as inclusions of altered country rock. Native silver occurs along a zone traced for at least 20 meters of strike length on the High Grade vein. Secondary weathering minerals, namely malachite, azurite and hydrozincite are common particularly in underground workings and along surface fractures.

The sulfides occur in the replacement bodies as coarse grains, wispy stringers and semi-massive veinlets associated with discrete lenses and stringers of quartz rich material bound by low sulfide bearing barite and calcite. High sulfide content appears to be directly dependent on quartz or silica content. Sphalerite is by far the most dominant sulfide and comprise over 70% of the sulfide content.

Between 1929 and 1938, the Mountain Boy property produced 60 tons of hand cobbed material that yielded an average 546.8 oz/ton silver, 3.2% copper and 3.15% lead per ton of ore. In 1940, mining extracted 3.08 tons grading an average 0.09 oz/ton gold, 248 oz/ton silver, 2.2% copper, 4.9% lead and 5.8% zinc.
In 1999, Mountain Boy Minerals extracted a 13.6-tonne (15 tons) sample from the High Grade vein with results from the smelter indicating a value of 18,854 grams per tonne silver (550 ounces per ton), 1.1 per cent zinc and 2.5 per cent lead for this shipment
Based on the surface and underground sampling and drilling, an indicated resource totaling 105, 555 tonnes grading 0.064% copper, 0.69% lead, 2.01% zinc, 208.9 g/t silver and 13.59% barite has been outline in three different veins. There is great potential to expand the known resources through drilling.

During the 2006 exploration program, 19 BTW diamond drill holes totaling 888.40 meters were completed from 3 different drill pad sites.

Due to the steep nature of the terrain, a drill station was blasted out below the High Grade vein and 14 holes drilled from this station using an underground drill to fan a series of holes from this location. In the course of stripping of the High Grade vein using a small excavator in order to build the drill station, massive acanthite (argentite) stringers up to 15 cm wide were exposed along several meters of length in a fault zone that intersects the vein. The full length of the mineralization was not exposed due to the deep overburden on either end of the exposure. This orientation of veining has never been seen in the past and may represent feeders to high grade mineralization found in the High Grade and No 3 veins. Grab sampling of these stringers has yielded over 15,000 g/t silver.
To put it into perspective , that historical material mined in the 30's and 40's was very close to surface- handcobbed.
Its value today would be around 7100$US per tonne- or about 10.5 OZS of GOLD equiv. The 15 ton bulk sample in 1999 also would have over 7000$ US per tonne value.
Note these results from near surface drills last year.
