Canadian Royalties Inc. Expands Tootoo Nickel-Copper-PGE Zone

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 14, 2005) - Canadian Royalties Inc. (TSX:CZZ) reports initial results from 12 of 38 diamond drill holes completed during the 2005 exploration season on the Tootoo nickel-copper-PGE zone. Drilling has extended the Tootoo massive sulphide zone, originally discovered by Canadian Royalties in 2002, in both easterly and westerly directions. Diamond drill hole TT-05-30 intersected 3.2% nickel (Ni), 2.9% copper (Cu), 0.18% Cobalt (Co), 0.21 g/t gold (Au), 0.62 g/t platinum (Pt) and 3.70 g/t palladium (Pd) (4.52 g/t PGM) over 9.8 metres.

The Tootoo zone is located three kilometres to the southeast of the Mequillon deposit, where indicated resources of 4,185,000 tonnes grading 0.6% Ni, 0.9% Cu, 0.03% Co, 0.2 g/t Au, 0.7 g/t Pt and 2.4 g/t Pd have been identified based on drilling completed in 2004.



Tootoo Zone Highlights

- Three holes from the original 2002 Tootoo zone discovery drilling
(TT-02-1, 2 and 3) on section 1875E included a wide section of
high-grade mineralization in TT-02-2 (10.5 metres grading 3.14% Ni,
2.56% Cu, 0.17% Co, 0.8 g/t Pt, 2.6 g/t Pd).

- Six holes (TT-05-28 to 30, TT-05-37 and 39) on section 1900E
intersected a wide section of mineralization with high-grade
massive sulphides in TT-05-30: 3.2% Ni, 2.9% Cu, 0.21 g/t Au,
0.62 g/t Pt and 3.70 g/t Pd over 9.8 metres.

- Six holes (TT-05-31 to 36) on section 1850E intersected
intermediate and high grade mineralization over wide intervals
consisting of massive sulphide veins and heavy net texture in
TT-05-35: 1.04% Ni, 0.78 % Cu, 0.06% Co, 0.06 g/t Au, 0.27 g/t Pt,
and 1.48 g/t Pd over 19.3 metres.

- A newly identified embayment feature situated on the south side of
the main Tootoo ultramafic body provides an understanding on the
controls of mineralization. Mineralization is typified by a
high-grade core hosted within the embayment, surrounded by a broad
halo of lower to intermediate grade material. The newly recognized
embayment feature is the dominant control on mineralization and has
been identified on all three reported sections
(1850E, 1875E, 1900E).

- Due to the geometry of the embayment and proximity to the main
Tootoo ultramafic, four to six holes are drilled per section.
Typically, one hole intersects the higher-grade material and the
remaining holes define the lower-grade broad halo and the outline
of the embayment.

- Mineralization is shallow, above the 100 metre level and
potentially amenable to open pit extraction.

Notes:
- Lengths are drill intersected core lengths, composite lengths are
length weighted;
- PGE equals gold + platinum + palladium;

Canadian Royalties' Raglan South Nickel project

The $9,000,000 2005 exploration program has resulted in the discovery of new Ni-Cu sulphide mineralization, while at the same time expanding the resource base of the existing Ni-Cu-PGE deposits and mineralized zones. In addition, the company has environmental studies, road construction and metallurgical bulk sampling underway at the Mesamax deposit. The field exploration program is close to completion for 2005 with work now concluding on the collection of a bulk sample at the Mesamax deposit.

Updated maps and drill sections for the Tootoo nickel-copper zone are available on the Canadian Royalties website, at www.canadianroyalties.com/tootoo.

Todd Keast, P.Geo, Canadian Royalties Raglan Exploration Project Manager/Geologist, is the designated Qualified Person responsible for the exploration program on the property and the person responsible for the preparation of this release.
