VANCOUVER, B.C., February 14, 2008 - Mont Blanc Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTN) (the "Company" or "Mont Blanc") reports:
The Company, along with two independent geologists, performed two site inspections of its 100% owned Los Pavitos mining claim in Sonora, Mexico. The inspections included grab sampling and rock-chip sampling and a general assessment of the geography of the area as well as an assessment of road, water and electricity access. The assays from the samplings had the following showings for three significant minerals identified
Copper 3.9% 2.46% 2.16% Lead 0.62% 0.58% 0.20% Zinc 0.81% 0.68% 0.63%
Marvin Mitchell, P.Eng., one of two independent geologists involved in the January 2008 site inspection, has interpreted the results along with his other observations at the site and of the surrounding area. Mr. Mitchell comments "The Los Povitos property is comprised of mineralized rhyolite dykes in granodiorite." "The preliminary site inspection indicates the potential existence of a porphyry copper system."
As previously reported, the Company has engaged a geologist from Mexico who has extensive experience in the area to begin the exploration program. The exploration program will involve various geological recognition procedures to locate mineralized zones including Aster Satellite data and systematic soil and rock-chip sampling. The information obtained from the geological recognition phase will be followed by a detailed geological mapping of the mineralized zones.
The Los Pavitos claim, the first of three claims to be acquired under an option agreement, covers 10,000 hectares and is located approximately 35 kilometres southeast of Navojoa, Sonora. Small-scale copper and gold mining have taken place historically throughout the property. The property hosts similar age copper-bearing intrusives as observed at the Piedras Verdes mine located 30 kilometres to the northeast. The Piedras Verdes mine has been in production since October, 2006, by Frontera Copper Corp.
The Company is evaluating the assay results obtained from two separate site visits that involved rock-chip sampling conducted on the two other properties that are currently under option, the Brenda and Christina mining claims. The Company will also be obtaining ASTER Satellite Data on the two properties to analyze the mineral alteration zones to assist in identifying exploration targets. Information will be reported as it becomes available.
