VANCOUVER, B.C., October 11, 2007 - Mont Blanc Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTN) (the "Company") Mr. Jens Biertumpel provides an update on Mexico mining claims: As previously announced on September 17, 2007, the Company entered into an option agreement to purchase three separate mineral claims in the state of Sonora, Mexico. Under the agreement the Company will have the right to earn a 100% interest in the properties, namely Brenda, Los Pavitos and Christina.
Upon exercise of the option for each property, the Company will commence a systematic reconnaissance exploration program, including rock-chip sampling, geological mapping, and geophysics in order to determine each property's potential.
The Brenda Property covers 10,000 hectares and is located approximately 35 kilometres northeast of Navojoa in the state of Sonora, Mexico. The property adjoins the Las Minitas Project of Pershimco Resources Inc. In 2006, Pershimco's joint venture partner, Tara Gold Resources Corporation announced an Indicated Mineral Resource of 13,534,398 metric tonnes @ 7.58 oz/t or 102,590,736.8 ounces of silver based upon re-evaluation of historical data. The geology of the Brenda Property exhibits similar rock types and structures that host mineralization observed at Las Minitas. Several old mine workings, predominately gold, are present throughout the Brenda Property.
The Los Pavitos Property lies directly south of the Brenda Property, covering 10,000 hectares, is located approximately 35 kilometres southeast of Navojoa, Sonora. Los Pavitos hosts similar geology to the Brenda Property. 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 Corporation. The mine has Proven and Probable Reserves of 191 metric tonnes @ 0.36% CuT.
The Christina Property is located 25 kilometres south-southeast of Alamos, Sonora and covers 10,000 hectares. The property is located northeast and east and adjoins Pan America Silver Corporation's Alamo Dorado Mine. The Alamo Dorado Mine has Proven and Probable Reserves of 12,436,000 metric tonnes @ 112 g Ag/t or 44,916,424 oz of silver. The geology of the Christina is similar to that observed at Alamo Dorado. A preliminary and limited review of the property identified numerous old copper, gold, and silver workings that were previously exploited.
