VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2007) - New Cantech Ventures Inc. ("New Cantech") (TSX VENTURE:NCV)(FRANKFURT:C7X), announced on May 31, 2007 the results of a then recently completed Mineral Resource estimate for the Indi Claims in the Skeena Mining District near Stewart, B.C. The Indi Claims, located near the former producing Premier Silbak mine, are part of the "Silver Coin Project" currently being explored by New Cantech's joint venture partners Pinnacle Mines Ltd. and Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. The Mineral Resource estimate was prepared by MineFill Services, Inc. ("MineFill") of Vancouver, British Columbia.

New Cantech has a 45% joint venture interest in the Indi 9, 10, 11 and 12 mineral claims which comprise 750 ha, out of a total of 2,244.5 ha that comprise the Silver Coin Project (New Cantech does not have any interest in the Silver Coin Project other than the Indi 9, 10, 11 and 12 mineral claims). The only Indi claim to be explored by New Cantech's joint venture partners has been the Indi 9 Claim which is adjacent to and west of the Big Missouri and Kansas claims. The Big Missouri and Kansas claims host the majority of the mineral resources of the Silver Coin Project.

The Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource for the Indi claims were estimated to include 333,900 tonnes grading 0.52 g/t Au, 15.17 g/t Ag, and 0.26% Zn above a cutoff of 0.75 g/t Au-equivalent. An additional 590,000 tonnes grading 0.61 g/t Au, 3.94 g/t Ag and 0.21% Zn are classed as Inferred. These Resources had been estimated in compliance with CIM (2000).
