Kent Exploration Reports Silver Hill Assay Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2008) - Kent Exploration Inc (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KEX) reports it has received bonanza grade silver assay results from International Plasma Labs (IPL) on 12 rock samples taken from its 100% optioned, approximately 500 ha, Silver Hill property during a geological assessment of the property by the Company's consulting geologist, Linda Caron, Msc., P.Eng.

The most significant grades reported are 167.4 opt/ag (5.238 kg/t ag), 9.47% cu, 10.69% pb and 3.25% zn; 51.4 opt/ag, (1.734 kg/t ag) 1.3% cu, 10.42% pb, 0.7% zn; 35 opt/ag, (1.198 kg/t ag) 1.57% cu, 6.71% pb, 0.82% zn; 32.5 opt/ag (1.142 kg/t ag) 0.65% cu, 7.63% pb, 0.14% zn; and 27.9 opt/ag (0.954 kg/t ag) 1.55% cu, 5.66% pb and 39.21% zn.

All samples taken were grab samples, with the highest grade sample being an in-situ grab sample taken from the lower section of a splayed vein near an adit portal on the vein, the upper section being 30 cm in width and the lower section 20 cm in width.

Grab samples are selected samples collected to determine the presence or absence of mineralization and are not intended to be representative of the material sampled.

All samples were analyzed at IPL for a multi-element ICP suite (Package P1701). In addition, all samples were assayed for gold and silver by fire assay/gravimetric finish on a 30 gram sample (Package P1304), and all were assayed by ore grade assay (Package G113) for copper, lead and zinc.

IPL is an ISO 9000:2001 certified laboratory that employs a quality control/quality assurance protocol consisting of routine duplicate, blank and standard analyses.

The complete results are tabulated below.

Due to the bonanza grade nature of the silver assays received from the recent sampling program, which compare favorably to the historic reported silver grades of 28.94 opt Ag (991 g/t), the Company is planning a more comprehensive sampling program on the property.
