Gravity West Cuts Massive Sulphides at Voltaire Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2007) - Livio Susin, president of Gravity West Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GRW), is pleased to announce the results of the first phase of diamond drilling on the company's Voltaire Lake property in the Sibley basin, 150 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Drill holes have intersected massive sulphides including chalcopyrite in unmapped basement rocks that are buried under a cover of Sibley sediments and a diabase sill. The basement geology that has been revealed contains environments that are favourable for gold, volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) and nickel-copper PGE mineralization.

Five diamond drill holes totalling 1,203 metres were drilled to test a group of conductors defined by a VTEM® airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey carried out over the 73,000 acre Voltaire Lake property in the summer of 2007. All five holes cut through a diabase sill, followed by Sibley group sediments, and entered basement rocks at vertical depths between 70 and 100 metres. The basement rocks are Archean age metavolcanics, metasediments and intrusives belonging to the Garden Lake greenstone belt.

Diamond drill hole VL07-03A intersected intrusive rocks including diorite, gabbro and pyroxenite from the Sibley unconformity at 81 metres to the end of the hole at 215 metres. The 12-metre pyroxenite section was mineralized with disseminated to net-textured sulphides, mainly pyrrhotite. This geological environment is favourable for nickel-copper and/or PGE mineralization.

Basement rocks in drill hole VL07-04 consisted of metasediments, diorite, granodiorite and a 5 metre section of a heavily altered (garnet and biotite are the main alteration minerals) volcanic rock with disseminated to massive pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite. The aluminous alteration mineralogy suggests an environment favourable to shallow-water VMS mineralization similar to that found at the Sturgeon Lake mining camp, 115 kilometres to the west, where four separate mines operating from 1973 to 1991 produced over 18 million tonnes of Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag-Au ore.

In drill hole VL05-05 the basement rocks included 37 metres of gabbro with disseminated sulphides including minor chalcopyrite, followed by 4 metres of agglomerate, 9 metres of quartz-feldspar porphyry and 45 metres of felsic tuff, most of which is silicified. The porphyry has been chloritized and contains disseminated pyrite with minor chalcopyrite. The felsic tuff contains disseminated to stringery sulphides throughout with a 12 metre section that shows extreme silicification and contains six separate short sections of massive pyrrhotite and pyrite with local splashes of chalcopyrite. The geology indicates a favourable environment for VMS-type base metal mineralization, as well as volcanogenic and/or epigenetic gold.

Samples from these three drill holes have been split and sent for assay. Meanwhile, the drill has been moved to test the Black Sturgeon fault area in the eastern part of the property. The Black Sturgeon fault is a regional-scale structure that was active during and after the deposition of the Proterozoic age Sibley sediments. As such, it is an important target area for uranium exploration.

Livio Susin, Gravity West president, commented, "The discovery of base metal mineralization in the basement rocks, under the Sibley Basin, is a strong endorsement of Gravity West's strategy of acquiring projects which have the potential to host more than one type of deposit. This geologic leverage will continue to guide Company strategy."

The company has given notice to Cascadia International Resources Inc. that it will not proceed with the proposed mineral rights reciprocal exchange as announced on the September 8th, 2007 press release.
