MPH Ventures Corp.: Significant Drill Results on Molybdenum Deposit in NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 21, 2008) - MPH Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MPS)(FRANKFURT:IJA1) (the "Company") is pleased to announce initial assay results for the first 3 diamond drill holes of a 10,000 metre 30 to 40 hole drill program on its Pidgeon Molybdenum Deposit located in NW Ontario. The purpose of this primary drill program is to confirm the location, style, and grade of molybdenum mineralization that had been previously reported by Rio Algom in 1981.

Hole locations are designed to infill gaps in previous drilling and to confirm where mineralization was reported and to test the down dip extension of known mineralization. By doing this, the Company intends to quickly confirm historical data as reported by Rio Algom, and to further increase the size of the deposit.

MPH Ventures has now completed 9 delineation diamond drill holes. Assays have been received from the first 3 holes helping to confirm historic results and continuing to encourage the Company of the validity of past reports (see News Release November 27, 2007) including Rio Algom's report of 55,000,000 tonnes of an inferred resource of .081% molybdenum starting at surface.

All intercepts are believed to be 90%+ of true width of mineralization


Hole PM07-1 has confirmed the down dip extension of the known mineralization. Holes PM07-2 and PM07-3 have confirmed mineralization in previous drill intercepts. As there are many more drill holes to report, the Company feels this is an excellent start in the process to delineate the Pidgeon Molybdenum Deposit. All nine holes have intersected the same style mineralization.

The completed drill holes have confirmed and extended the previously described geology and molybdenum mineralization. The margin of a potassic granite is intruded by late phase pegmatitic material consisting primarily of quartz and K-feldspar. The known main mineralized zone of pegmatite, in the margin of the granite, is from 30 to 50 metres thick. The drill holes indicate that additional zones of pegmatite occur deeper into the granite body than was previously known. Assays from the additional 6 drill holes have not been received and are pending including the deeper intersections.
