Boxxer Trenching Locates High-Grade Copper Mineralization At Boyer Ranch

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2007) - Boxxer Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BXX) is pleased to provide an update on its current exploration program at the Boyer Ranch property located approximately 120 miles east of Reno. Mapping and trenching resulted in expanding the known copper showing on the property (Upper Zone) and discovery of a new zone (Lower Zone) of copper mineralization located approximately 850 feet to the northeast. The two strata-bound zones of iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG)-style copper mineralization occur at or near the contact between flat-lying Tertiary volcanic tuffs/tuffaceous sediments and gently to moderately dipping Jurassic-age porphyritic/amygdaloidal andesite to basaltic andesite flows/flow breccias.

Highlights:

a) This zone has a weighted average grade of 1.63% copper and 5.49 ppm silver over a minimum estimated true thickness of 10 feet. The maximum copper grade in this zone is 5.68% over three feet in Trench # 3.

b) Where exposed by trenching this zone has a weighted average grade of 3.53% copper and 10 ppm silver over a minimum estimated true thickness of 13 feet. The maximum copper grade in this zone is 8.18% over five feet.

c) Outcrop sampling in the Lower Zone has yielded a high grade zone that averaged 7.01% cooper over an interval of 15 feet.

d) 2,000 feet of diamond drilling is planned in October to test the down dip extensions of the zones of copper mineralization after completion of the geophysical surveys.

The weighted average grades of copper-silver mineralization in the trenches, outcrop and pit walls are set out below:

A total of 600 feet in 12 trenches were completed and 116 channel samples collected. Detailed geologic mapping both within the trenches and surrounding area have also been completed.

Upper Zone:

This zone is partially capped by a hematitic regolith (leached cap) that overlies mixed oxidized copper carbonate and lesser hypogene copper sulfide mineralization. The mineralization forms a tabular-shaped, strata-bound zone consisting of fracture-controlled and disseminated malachite + azurite and variably oxidized chalcocite + bornite as fine-grained disseminations, impregnations, replacement blebs, amygdale fillings, breccia matrix and rare veinlets. Locally, irregular replacement pods of massive chalcocite up to 2 feet in diameter are present. The zone which appears confined to a highly fractured and brecciated, variably altered (chlorite + albite-iron carbonate - hematite) flow-flow breccia unit, is locally folded and disrupted by several faults. The mineralized zone is cut off along strike to the southeast by one of these faults but has been traced to the northwest for over 200 feet before being covered by Tertiary volcanic rocks. Trenching results suggests the mineralized zone is open along strike and extends to the northwest under the Tertiary cover. The thickness of this zone has not yet been determined by trenching.

The leached cap which is up to 15 feet thick contains anomalous concentration (maximum 0.13% copper over 3.0 feet) of copper and no significant precious metal values.

Lower Zone:

This zone exhibits a similar style of mineralization as the Upper Mineralized Zone. The mineralization is more oxidized (malachite + azurite) with little or no sulfide minerals present. The copper mineralization has been traced in outcrop and trenches for over a distance of 200 feet and is open in both directions. Copper mineralization is interpreted to extend under Tertiary volcanic located a short distance to the north. The thickness of this zone has not yet been determined by trenching.

Conclusions:

Two strata-bound zones of significant oxidized copper mineralization have been identified. Both zones appear to extend under thin (100') to thick (300') Tertiary volcanic rocks to the north. The highest copper grades in both zones occur at fold flexures which may suggest the potential for high-grade shoots of copper mineralization down plunge (to the northeast) along the fold axis under the Tertiary volcanic cover.

Exploration Plan:

Limited soil sampling along the Jurassic/Tertiary contact along strike east of the identified zones has been competed. Results are pending.
Geophysical surveys including mise-a-la-masse, magnetic and electromagnetic (VLF) surveys are currently on-going. The mise-a-la-masse survey is expected to trace the zones of copper mineralization under the Tertiary cover. The geophysical data coupled with geologic mapping will be used to establish drilling targets.

Sample Preparation and Analysis:

All drill trench, outcrop and soil samples were prepared at the ALS Chemex laboratory in Winnemucca, Nevada. Prepared sample pulps were shipped to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia for geochemical analysis (atomic absorption and ICP-AES methods). ALS Chemex's quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO9001:2000 and ISO 17025:1999. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the use of international and in-house standards. Additional quality control measures included insertion of blanks in all drill core sample batches submitted and requests for duplicate check assays from selected pulp or coarse-reject samples.
