Boxxer Gold Reports Wide Zones of Copper-Gold Mineralization on Boss Property

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 27, 2005) - Boxxer Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BXX) announces the results of a recently completed rock chip and channel sampling program that has yielded significant intervals of copper-gold-silver-platinum-palladium mineralization on the Boss Mine, Boss Extension and Oro Amigo zones. The program was completed to follow up copper-gold-silver-platinum-palladium mineralization that was previously located by sampling on all three zones. The Boss property is located in Clark County, Nevada, approximately 90 kms west of Las Vegas.

Chip/channel sampling was completed to determine continuity of the mineralization across the interpreted strike direction of the Boss mine and Oro Amigo zones. Reconnaissance sampling completed in the Boss Extension area was completed to confirm previous sample results and determine the width of the mineralization. A total of 71chip/channel samples and two grab samples were collected within a broad zone of coarse grained dolomite with irregular pods and lenses of replacement style oxidized copper mineralization. Sample intervals ranged from 2.0 to 17.4 feet with the majority of the sample intervals being 6.0 feet. The weighted average grades for the chip/channel sampling program are as follows. All assays are in grams per metric tonne (g/t) other than the copper, which is in %:

Boss Mine Results:

This last round of sampling on the third level of the Boss Mine completes Boxxer's program of underground sampling across the interpreted width of the mineralized zone as allowed by the existing workings. When including previously announced sampling results, the weighted average grade of the mineralized zone on the third level is 0.41 g/t gold, 0.12 g/t platinum, 0.11 g/t palladium, 3.04 g/t silver and 0.99% copper over an interval of 173 feet. The mineralized interval on this level is open to the southeast.

Additional sampling on the fifth level was completed along the hanging wall of a previously mined area (stope) which extended from the portal to furthest extent of the workings. The last sample collected at the end of the existing workings returned 1.20 g/t gold, 0.05 g/t platinum, 0.36 g/t palladium, 318 g/t silver and 5.87% copper over an interval of 6.0 feet. Mineralization on this level is open along the interpreted strike of the mineralized zone to the northeast.

Oro Amigo Results:

In the early 1900's two levels were developed to explore this zone of mineralization. Recent sampling of the upper level was completed from the portal to the furthest extent of the existing underground workings. Sampling on the lower level of this zone was completed to follow up results from a previous chip/channel sampling program. The sampling of this zone did not close off the limits of the mineralization in this part of the lower level, and additional work is required.

Two grab samples were collected from a sublevel (30 feet below the Lower level) on the Oro Amigo zone. This sub-level is characterized by widespread hematitic replacement style alteration. Sample OA-17-05 (taken over an interval of 12 inches) returned an average of 0.04 g/t gold, 0.01 g/t platinum, 0.08 g/t palladium, 5.70 g/t silver and 6.0% copper. Sample OA-18-05 (taken over an interval of 12 inches) returned a weighted average grade of 3.42 g/t gold, 0.37 g/t platinum, 0.59 g/t palladium, 60.7 g/t silver and 0.03% copper. Future sampling of this sub-level and an additional sub-level located 80 feet below the lower level is planned.

Boss Extension:

Reconnaissance sampling in this area covered a strike length of approximately 400 feet. The chip/channel samples were collected from a series of short exploration adits which were developed in the early 1900's. These adits are located approximately 400 feet along strike of the area where previous sampling located significant concentrations of gold-platinum-palladium-silver-copper mineralization. A total of six chip/channel samples were collected from this area. Sample BME-01-05 returned 1.33 g/t gold, 0.00 g/t platinum, 0.03 g/t palladium, 18.1 g/t silver and 0.57% copper over an interval of 10 feet. Additional sampling will be required to determine the extent of the mineralization in this area.

The review of the previous and recently completed sampling suggests the following:

a) the zone of mineralization exposed in the Boss Mine and the Boss Extension are interpreted to be the same zone, extend over a minimum horizontal distance of 2,000 feet and open to the northeast,

b) the Oro Amigo zone is interpreted to extend over a minimum horizontal distance of 2,000 feet and exhibits a similar style of mineralization to that in the Boss Mine - Boss Extension zone. The Oro Amigo zone is located on a separate mineralized trend from that which hosts the Boss Mine - Boss Extension,

c) significant concentrations of precious metals (gold-platinum-palladium-silver) can occur separate from copper mineralization, and

d) the mineralization located in the Boss Mine- Boss Extension and the Oro Amigo zones contain anomalous concentrations of nickel and cobalt.

Exploration Model:

An intrusion related (porphyry) - carbonate replacement exploration model being used for the Boss property is based on its many similarities with the Robinson Mining District located 12 miles west of Ely, Nevada. The Robinson Mining District was mined from 1908 to 1963 and is reported to have produced 255 million tonnes of material at average grade of 0.8% Cu. The mineralization in the Robinson Mining District also is reported to have contained gold and silver in carbonate replacement deposits (e.g. Star Pointer) along with anomalous concentrations of Pt-Pd-Ni-Co.

Subject to financing, additional work is planned to follow up these results including further detailed geophysics and surface sampling prior to commencing a drill program contemplated for early 2006.

Sample Preparation and Analysis:

All samples were prepared at the ALS Chemex laboratory in Elko Nevada. Sample preparation for rock samples included weighing the sample, fine crushing to 70% passing minus 2 millimetres and then pulverizing a 300 gram split to 85% passing minus 75 microns. The prepared sample pulps for the rock samples were shipped to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia for analysis. A 30 gram sub-sample of the split for the rock sample was subjected to an Aqua Regia digestion for copper and silver followed by atomic absorption analysis. Gold, platinum and palladium concentration were determined using a 30-gram aliquot and fire assay with Induced Coupled Plasma finish. The rock samples were also analyzed using a 34 element Aqua Regia ICP-AES method.
