Cline Mining Announces Cline Lake Drilling Results and Additional Drilling

SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2007) - Cline Mining Corporation ("Cline" or the "Company") (TSX:CMK) is pleased to announce further drill and assay results from the core drilling program on it's Cline Lake gold property located near Wawa, Ontario, Canada. The drilling program is being carried out by Heath and Sherwood Drilling Ltd. of Kirkland Lake, Ontario under the direction of Dale M. Hendrick, P. Eng..

Assay results from all sixteen holes of Phase I of the drill program have now all been received from Swastika Laboratories Ltd. of Swastika, Ontario. Results for the initial holes up to and including CL 07-9 were reported in previous news releases. A summary of the most important gold intersections encountered in the complete 16 hole Phase I program, including the additional results of the last six holes CL07-10 to CL07-15, is included below.

As a result of a recent technical review by Mr. Hendrick of the full Phase I project assay results, he notes that in hole CL 07-8 on section 2400E, infill sampling has extended a zone at 1,400 feet vertical depth that averages 0.186 opt gold over 25.9 feet (core length) including 0.773 opt over 4.3 feet. At 1,460 feet vertical depth, a second zone assayed 0.250 opt gold over 6.6 feet (core length). Hole CL 07-2 on section 3500E, returned numerous intersections highlighted by 0.105 opt gold over 52.2 feet (core length) including 0.530 opt over 8.5 feet at a vertical depth of 700 feet. A value of 2.173 opt gold over 2.3 feet was returned at a vertical depth of 1,700 feet. These wide spaced deep intercept's showing higher grades and core lengths are very encouraging as to increasing commercial potential in depth and strike length.

Mr. Hendrick reports that approximately 30,000 feet of BQ sized core has been logged and sampled in the Phase I program. North to south drill fences have been completed from west to east across the property on six sections located at 500, 1500, 2400, 3500, 4600, and 5500 E. The drill program was designed to define the geological, structural and mineralizing environment beneath the old historical shallow mine workings at depths never before drilled on the property (below 2,000 feet vertical).

Four shafts were sunk on the Cline Lake gold property in the early 1930's and according to information published in the Canadian Mines Handbook the Cline Mine produced 332,670 tons at a recovered grade of 0.215 opt gold, with production coming from mine workings between surface and 500 feet vertical depth. The property is underlain by east-west trending, steeply dipping, mafic volcanics that are interlayered almost conformably with sills or dykes of felsite "quartz-eye" porphyry hosting sulphide and gold mineralized quartz veining. A major regional structural event, the Edwards/Cline Shear, dips 60-70 degrees north and runs west to east across the south of the property, and appears to be one controlling factor that localizes quartz- sulphide-gold mineralization within the porphyries and volcanics. A second major structure, a shear/alteration zone, associated with the porphyry appears to dip steeply south and runs east-west across the northern portion of the property. Quartz-sulphide - gold mineralization is localized within the shear structure which appears to have been extended to approximately 3,200 feet on strike during the recent drill program. Visible "free" gold is seen frequently in the mineralized zones that have been intersected in this 16 hole program to vertical depths of 1700 feet.

Sample Preparation, Analyses and Security

All diamond drill core marked for sampling is split manually on site and all samples are individually tagged and bagged immediately after splitting. Individual sample bags are sealed and twenty consecutive samples are put into rice bags which are sealed with security locks for shipping directly to Swastika Laboratories. The remaining half of the split core rests in the core tray at the appropriate sample location, and all core trays are stored in core racks, on-site, where access is via a locked gate. A permanent camp watchman provides security. Cline Mining has initiated a quality check program whereby one split sample of diabase is inserted with every 20 samples submitted. When visible gold is observed in the core, both pulp and metallic assays are requested. Swastika Laboratories maintains a routine sample preparation method and fire assaying of a one assay ton portion with a gravimetric or atomic absorption finish. Repeat or check assays are completed on average for one of every ten submitted samples using the original pulp and occasionally on a second pulp prepared from the stored reject. Swastika Laboratories maintains a Certificate of Laboratory Proficiency accredited by the Standards Council of Canada and uses Rocklabs standards for quality control.

In view of the results of the Phase I program, Mr. Hendrick, has recommended that the company now carry out additional deep drilling to test the area under holes CL 07-8 and CL 07-2 on sections 2400E and 3500E respectively. This additional drilling would amount to 6,400 feet at an all-in cost of approximately $300,000.00. The Company has commenced this recommended new drilling program.
