Mill Bay Ventures Inc. to Continue Exploration on Valentine Mountain

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - Mill Bay Ventures Inc. ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE:MBV)(PINK SHEETS:MLBVF)(FRANKFURT:M4K) is pleased to announce the commencement of a prospecting, mapping and geochemical sampling program at the Valentine Mountain Property designed to follow-up elevated gold and other metal values discovered in stream moss samples in two areas of the property during the 2008 Program. The news release of November 26, 2008 summarized the results from the stream moss mat sampling portion of the 2008 Program as follows:

"The stream moss mat samples yielded a high percentage (20 of 42 equals 48%) with one or more elevated metal values. These fell into two distinct populations, consisting of 11 samples which yielded elevated values in only gold (exceeding 50 ppb or 0.05 g/t), and 9 samples which yielded elevated values in one or more metals including copper (exceeding 50 ppm), lead (exceeding 10 ppm), zinc (exceeding 100 pm), nickel (exceeding 50 ppm), cobalt (exceeding 50 ppm) and/or arsenic (exceeding 25 ppm). These results suggest the presence of upstream sources of at least two distinct types of metallic occurrences, one of which is primarily gold-bearing. These appear to display two trends: one along the east-west corridor centred on the Discovery Zone, and another along a possible west-northwest northern corridor. Follow-up prospecting and more detailed stream moss mat sampling are warranted, particularly along the latter."

The 2009 program will be focused on the primarily gold-bearing west-northwest corridor, which yielded 6 of 13 (46%) stream moss mat samples exceeding 50 ppb gold, including 3 exceeding 100 ppb gold, and a maximum value of 357 ppb gold. This 6 kilometre long corridor contains no known gold-bearing or other mineral occurrences.

This program will be conducted by and under the supervision of Jacques Houle, P.Eng., a qualified person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Houle has reviewed the contents of this news release.
