Cartier Cuts 1.5 % Copper and 100 g/t Silver Over 19 Metres on Cadillac Extension

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2011) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that additional results from channel samples returned 1.5 % copper and 100 g/t silver over 19 meters and 629 g/t silver, 1.2 % copper and 1.4 g/t gold over 2 meters within a broader interval grading 1.0 % copper and 80 g/t silver over 32 meters on the Cadillac Extension project located 115 kilometers east of Val-d'Or in the province of Quebec. Other results returned 2.7 % copper, 1.1 % zinc and 67 g/t silver over 3 meters within a wider interval grading 0.7 % copper and 27 g/t silver over 20 meters. One section returned 6.6 g/t gold and 237 g/t silver over 1 meter. These are the latest results from trenching conducted on the Langlade polymetalic zone, 45 samples are pending for final results.

The best intersections (weighted averages) from results for new contiguous channel samples received for this release include:

Note: the sample lengths presented in this table are those of the channel samples generally taken perpendicular to the mineralization. Due to complex folding some channel samples, as in the case of channels 7 and 11, are partially longitudinal to the mineralization. The real true thickness, which would take into account the varying dip, cannot be calculated at this time.

Overall 609 1-meter channel samples were taken on a systematic 10-meter spaced pattern over the area of interest (refer to the figure and table included with this release for a compilation of the best intersections from recent sampling taken at Langlade). The zone is open laterally and at depth and is supported by the results of a recent geophysical survey. Diamond drilling is planned to test the depth and lateral extensions of the zone.

Mineralization occurs as lens of disseminated to semi-massive sulphides consisting of sphalerite-chalcopyrite-pyrite-pyrrhotite-gahnite-galena and is hosted within an envelope of anthophyllite-biotite-garnet altered rocks. Detailed mapping and sampling of the zone was completed in order to outline the overall geometry of the best potential units.

"We are very pleased that these additional results indicate good continuity for the mineralization at surface." commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO of Cartier, adding, "Drill hole targeting laterally and at depth will focus on confirming the potential for expansion".

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

The exploration program and the technical information presented in this press release have been reviewed and approved by Mr. Philippe Berthelot, P. Geo., Vice President Exploration for Cartier. Mr. Berthelot is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Cadillac Extension exploration program is conducted under the supervision of Mr. Berthelot. Cartier has implemented and adheres to a strict Quality Assurance/Quality Control program which includes mineralized standards and blanks for each batch of samples. Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half sent to a commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future reference. Analyses are either performed by Techni-lab S.G.B. Abitibi inc. (ACTLABS) in Sainte-Germaine, Quebec, or by ALS-Chemex in Val-d'Or, Quebec, both accredited laboratories.
