Cream Minerals Sampling Defines Gold Bearing Quartz Veins at Goldsmith Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 11, 2005) - Cream Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMA)(OTCBB:CRMXF)(FWB:DFL) ("Cream") is pleased to announce that it has received the initial analysis from the first phase of the 2005 exploration program on its Goldsmith Property, located near Kaslo in south eastern British Columbia. The extremely encouraging results from the 2003 and 2004 soil geochemistry and rock sampling programs are currently being followed up with detailed geological and structural mapping and expanded soil sampling.

The Goldsmith Property contains numerous historic, small scale, high-grade gold workings (Lucky Jack, Bullock, Swede, Goldsmith, Gold Park, etc.) throughout a 3-kilometre long belt of altered volcanic and sedimentary host rocks. High-grade gold mineralization in the historic workings is found in numerous quartz veins that range from a few centimetres to 5 metres in width. Also of interest on the Goldsmith Property are reports of gold values obtained from the sulphide-altered wall rock between and adjacent to the quartz veins. Reports from the early 1900s expound on the amount and size of free gold within the vein networks.

Prior rock grab and chip sampling from numerous small-scale historic workings, located within the large gold soil anomaly, returned some spectacular gold values (see previous News Releases). In 2004, a strong greater than 2.0 kilometre long gold soil anomaly was identified which follows the projected strike of the mineralizing structures and remains open along strike in both directions. Within the large gold soil anomaly, several large quartz veins and vein systems have been identified and detailed geological mapping and chip sampling has begun.

In order to determine the gold values within the vein systems, and which portion of the vein contains the best gold values, detailed 5-metre spaced soil samples were collected for a short distance along the base of two of the larger vein systems. Soil values collected at 5-metre intervals for 70 metres along vein V1 ranged from 20.3 ppb Au to 1,325.0 ppb Au. Samples collected at 5-metre intervals for 50 metres along vein V2 ranged from 16.5 to 395.0 ppb Au. The two veins are sub-parallel, with V1 averaging 1 metre in width and V2 averaging 1.5 metres in width. These veins are located 65 metres apart, and a third vein V3 has been identified 75 metres northeast of V2. The veins remain open along strike, with V2 being periodically exposed for over 200 metres in length. Mapping, rock chip and soil sampling will continue. Trench and drill targets are also being defined for follow-up in 2006.
