Bard Ventures Ltd.: Drilling Intersects 0.10% Mo (0.17% MoS2) Over 238 m at the Lone Pine Molybdenum Property, BC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 4, 2008) - Bard Ventures Ltd. ("Bard") or (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CBS) has received the results from BD-08-39 and BD-08-40 drill holes and is very pleased to announce the following drill results from its Lone Pine Molybdenum Property (the "Property"). The Property is located approximately 15 kilometers north-northwest of Houston, BC, and is situated in the Omineca Mining Division.

Final assay results received and interpreted from drill holes BD-08-39 and BD-08-40 are as follows:

Drill Total Interval
hole No. Depth (m) From (m) To (m) (m) Mo% MoS2%

BD-08-39 572.08 77.00 487.00 410.00 0.07 0.12
including 249.00 487.00 238.00 0.10 0.17
including 305.00 409.00 104.00 0.15 0.25

BD-08-40 556.84 127.00 457.00 330.00 0.05 0.08
including 261.00 317.00 56.00 0.08 0.13

Hole BD-08-39, a vertical drill hole, collared into alaskite at 15.37 meters and continued in the intrusive through to 180 meters before intersecting intercalated alaskite and andesite rocks to 260 meters. Alaskite intrusive was encountered again from 260 - 413 meters, with andesite between 413 - 556 meters. The hole was shutdown in quartz feldspar porphyry pluton at 572.08 meters. BD-08-39 was collared between drill holes BD-07-16 and BD-08-24 and was designed to test the northern extent of the high grade corridor encountered by other alaskite zone drill holes. Favorable molybdenum mineralization and abundant stock work veining was visible throughout the drill hole correlating well with grade and the geological interpretation.

Hole BD-08-40, a vertical drill hole, was collared 100 meters northwest of BD-08-39 and 50 meters northeast of BD-08-36. The drill hole collared into andesite at 12.20 meters before intersecting lengthy intervals of intercalated alaskite and andesite between 23.60 - 531.00 meters. The barren quartz feldspar porphyry pluton, encountered at 531 meters was drilled to a depth of 556.84 meters before the hole was shutdown.

The alaskite intrusive is the main focus of the Lone Pine Property drilling and has been interpreted as being the most favorable lithology for molybdenum mineralization. The alaskite intrusive to date continues to be drilled to the northwest of its original outcropping occurrence, drill hole BD-07-01 area, with exploration advancement to the northwest ongoing. The alaskite intrusive has been interpreted to plan view as being currently 510 meters in length and 310 meters in width with molybdenum mineralization tested to a depth of 843 meters. A higher grade corridor of molybdenum mineralization has been outlined within the alaskite intrusive as shown in the favourable assay results from BD-07-16, BD-08-24, BD-08-25, BD-08-28, BD-08-29, BD-08-32, BD-08-35 and BD-08-38.

Geological and stratigraphic information from all holes as well as recent surface mapping suggests the alaskite intrusive continues to the northwest. The geophysical surveys, total field magnetics in particular, concur with this geological interpretation.

Ideal location with established infrastructure

The Property has access to an existing infrastructure including:

- Highway 16;

- a natural gas pipeline;

- a major hydro power transmission line and transformer sub-station; and

- is located only 15 kilometers from the CN rail line in Houston, BC.
