Cadillac Announces Drilling Results at K1-1 Project at Thierry Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2012) - Cadillac Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CDC) ("Cadillac" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results for the first eight of 26 holes drilled on the K1-1 open pit project at its Thierry Mine property, located in Northwestern Ontario. Highlights include 110 feet of 0.626% Cu obtained from hole KH-11-21, and 87.5 feet of 0.546% Cu in hole KH-11-19.

The K1-1 project is located approximately 3 kms to the east of the Thierry Mine project, both being within the boundaries of the 11,538 acre Thierry property, occupying only a small portion of the property. In late 2011, the Company released an initial inferred mineral resource estimate for K1-1 within a Whittle pit shell consisting of: 19,897,000 tonnes grading 0.10% Ni, 0.42% Cu, 2.0 g/t Ag, 0.03 g/t Au, 0.05 g/t Pt, 0.15 g/t Pd and an Exploration Target for K1-1 located outside and below the resource pit shell of: 45-55 million tonnes grading between 0.08 and 0.12% Ni, 0.32 to 0.36% Cu. The 26 hole drill program was designed to address gaps within the pit shell area, as well as test for extensions along strike and at depth. Depicted below are the eight drillholes reported on in the press release, relative to the pit shell and the resources identified within the pit shell, and outside of the pit shell, the latter forms the exploration target. This drilling is also designed to facilitate the upgrading of known mineralization from the exploration target category into the resource statement using infill drilling. This can be seen below where the drillhole traces in yellow, some of which were collared in the pit, extend below the pit and the currently modeled mineralized envelopes. Recalculation of the resource, incorporating these drill results is expected to result in an increase to the resource by the extension of the modeled mineralization.

"We are pleased with the success of the K1-1 drilling program as seen in the consistent assay results over significant widths obtained so far, both within and outside of the currently designed pits. These results will have a positive impact on the existing resource at K1-1, which in turn will have a positive impact on the Thierry Mine Project as both the open pit and the underground resources would share the same infrastructure and capital costs, if a mining decision is made," stated Norman Brewster, President and CEO of Cadillac.

In this program there was a total of 20,868 feet drilled over the twenty-six holes, and a total of 2,590 samples taken (excluding quality assurance and quality control sample protocols). Results have been received for 663 samples over the holes K-11-17 thru K-11-24 as highlighted above. Of these samples 136 gave Cu values between 0.3 and 0.5%, 57 gave values between 0.5 and 1%, and 6 gave values over 1%. The remainder of the assays will be released as received and tabulated. Once all of the assays are received the Company will be updating the initial K1-1 resource statement.

The samples were selected in the field, cut and bagged, sealed with a security seal and transferred by personnel from Billiken Management Services Inc. and bonded courier to the facilities of Agat Laboratories Ltd. in Sudbury, Ontario where they were processed using Total Digestion ICP(Total), with the over limit results further tested by Fire Assay ICPOES, and the gold, platinum and palladium tested by Fire Assay ICP.

Mr. Brian H. Newton, P.Geo, of Billiken Management Services Inc. and a "qualified person" pursuant to NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release on behalf of the Company.

The deposit remains open at depth and to the west.

K1-1 Deposit

The K1-1 is a potentially open-pit, large tonnage, low grade deposit located approximately 3 km from the past producing Thierry Mine. The inferred mineral resource estimate for K1-1 within a Whittle pit shell consists of the following 20 million tonnes grading 0.42% Cu, 0.10% Ni, 2.0 g/t Ag, 0.03 g/t Au, 0.05 g/t Pt, 0.15 g/t Pd. The K1-1 Deposit is open along strike and at depth.
