VANCOUVER, B.C., February 11, 2008 - Mont Blanc Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTN) (the "Company" or "Mont Blanc") reports:

argaiv1335

The Company has initiated a systematic reconnaissance exploration program based on preliminary findings from the January 2008 site inspection of the Company's Los Pavitos mining claim in Sonora, Mexico.

In January, management of Mont Blanc along with two independent geologists conducted a site inspection of the Company's Los Pavitos mining claim. The inspection included soil 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. Following receipt of the assay results from the sampling, 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 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 assay results from the January 2008 site inspection are currently being interpreted by one of the independent geologists and a report is being prepared.

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.
