Cartier Identifies New Exploration Targets on Dollier Gold Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that numerous highly prospective targets have been identified following a heliborne Mag-EM survey on its Dollier property. Cartier's gold discovery made last fall, 9.17 g/t Au over 1.1 metres, is characterized by coincident magnetic and electromagnetic anomalies. Many of these anomalies have been identified along two parallel trends that occur on this property.

"I believe that many of these anomalies will outcrop, lending themselves to straightforward sampling and trenching techniques, and rapidly become drill targets," commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO of Cartier. "Moreover, the ease of access to this property and its proximity to skilled labour and infrastructure makes this a low cost/high reward exploration scenario for Cartier. We have a work plan in place and will commence activity on Dollier in the near term."

Numerous gold discoveries made last year and the detailed interpretation of the heliborne Mag-EM results led Cartier to increase the Dollier landholdings to 89 contiguous claims covering 50 square kilometers. The property is strategically located south of the past producing Lemoine Mine (758,070t @ 9.56% Zn, 4.20% Cu, 83.85 g/t Ag and 4.54 g/t Au; Pilote, P., 1998) and the Corner Bay deposit (334,000t @ 5.22% Cu; Corner Bay Deposit Audit of Mineral Resources Technical Report, 2006).

An EMosquito II magnetic and electromagnetic heliborne survey totalling 530 kilometers was completed last fall on the property with flight lines spaced every 100 meters. The survey identified 206 electromagnetic anomalies, of which 48 were prioritized for immediate follow-up ground prospecting and trenching. Moreover, the detailed interpretation of the magnetic results has defined new structures (lineaments) favorable for gold mineralization.

The lay of the ground of the Dollier property allows Cartier the opportunity to pursue on a year-round basis additional trenching and drilling. Cartier has multiple options to fund the exploration of this property through financing or partnership and will be providing updates to its shareholders regarding the advancement of this project.
