Cartier Commences a 4000-Meter Drill Program on the MacCormack Gold Discovery

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2009) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") announces that it will commence a diamond drill program in mid-October in the immediate vicinity of the MacCormack gold showing (7.27 g/t Au over 1.0 meter and 0.34 g/t Au over 67.0 meters). New data from recent geochemistry and geophysical surveys have highlighted important characteristics favorable for gold concentration.

An induced polarization survey was conducted over the western extension of the known gold zones on the MacCormack property. The survey covered 3.6 kilometers of the Porcupine-Destor Fault.

4,000 meters of diamond drilling will test the economic potential of the best geophysical targets. These targets are interpreted to be caused by concentrations of sulphides associated with gold mineralization.
