Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd (“Mountain Boy” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: MTB; Frankfurt: M9U) announces it has received an update on drilling at the Red Cliff property from Decade Resources Ltd., its joint venture partner and operator on the project. Mountain Boy Minerals holds a 35-per-cent interest in the Red Cliff property, located in the Golden Triangle British Columbia, just north of Stewart.

The latest drill intersections, as reported by Decade:

Mountain Boy and Decade are now in the process of organizing a comprehensive independent review of the Red Cliff project. That review would assess all the drilling and other results to date and would include re-logging and re-sampling of the drill core, as appropriate.

That review would form the basis for planning further exploration of this extensive mineralized system, which has been identified over a 2.3 kilometre length. Drilling has tested the system in several areas where the operator was able to gain access for a drill rig, but much of the system remains untested.

Lawrence Roulston, President, CEO and Director of Mountain Boy commented, “We are encouraged by these latest results, which support our belief that Red Cliff represents a large and well-mineralized gold-copper system. Located just 2.5 kilometres from a paved highway, Red Cliff is ideally situated for mine development. A comprehensive review will provide further guidance in how best to advance this project.

Mountain Boy also reports that a highly productive field season will be wrapping up next week. The five-member geological team worked in close cooperation with Auramex Resource Corp, as the two companies have adjacent properties in the Bear Valley/Bear Pass area. Results will be compiled and reported over the coming weeks.

In addition, Mountain Boy announces that it has closed the private placement announced August 17, 2018 of flow-through common shares.  A total of 1,812,500 flow-through shares, were issued at an offering price of $0.08 per FT Share for gross proceeds to the Company of $145,000. The proceeds of the private placement will be used for property exploration.  The flow-through shares issued under this placement are subject to a four-month hold period until January 5th, 2019.

Ed Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the Company and is responsible for the contents of this release.
