Cartier Stakes New High Potential Gold Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2009) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that it has acquired by staking a new high profile gold property. The property, named Diego, is situated 40 kilometers south-west of Chapais and consists of 67 map staked cells for a total area of 3,738 hectares. It covers a drill indicated gold-bearing structure over 10 kilometers with previous drill gold mineralized intersections featuring widths of 160 meters.

The property straddles the dominant gold-bearing structure of the area, the Opawica-Guercheville Deformation Zone ("OGDZ"). The gold potential of this structure is characterized by several gold deposits (Fenton - 402,000 tonnes at 5.01 g/t Au) and mines (Joe Mann- 4,289,221 tonnes at 7.56 g/t Au and 0.23 % Cu).

A detailed compilation of all historic data is in progress. This work indicates that the property hosts gold mineralization associated with porphyritic felsic intrusives within a deformation zone which marks sediment to volcanic rock contact.

On the property, the OGDZ structure cuts mafic and felsic volcanics as well as sedimentary units which are injected by numerous quartz-feldspar porphyritic dykes. These dykes are highly altered by a sericite-carbonate-pyrite assemblage and strewn with quartz veinlets. Numerous intersections mineralized with gold, varying from 1 to 5 g/t Au over 0.2 meter to metric widths, have been reported in both outcrop and previous drill holes.

The detailed compilation aims at producing target zones for further trenching and drill testing at depth.

The ease of access permits work on a year-round basis for trenching and drilling.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

The Diego exploration program is conducted under the supervision of Mr. Philippe Berthelot, P. Geo., qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Cartier has implemented and adheres to a strict Quality Assurance/Quality Control program which includes mineralized standards and blanks for each batch of samples. Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half sent to a commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future reference. Analyses are either performed by Techni-lab S.G.B. Abitibi inc. in Sainte-Germaine, Quebec, or by ALS-Chemex in Val-d'Or, Quebec, both accredited laboratories.
