Cartier Files New NI 43-101 Report on Kinojevis Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 24, 2009) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that it has completed its new independent National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant technical report (the "Report") on its Kinojevis Project near Cadillac, Quebec, Canada. Cartier holds 100% of the rights to the claims that comprise the Kinojevis project area. The Report has been filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) in Canada at www.sedar.com.

The Report is authored by Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo. and Daniel Gaudreault, P.Eng., both Independent and Qualified Persons under NI 43-101. The Report recommends two phases of work on six (6) distinct areas for an additional 31,000 metres of diamond drilling. The Report states that the Kinojevis property straddles the Destor-Porcupine Fault, a major gold trend in the Abitibi over 48 kilometers strike length. The gold-bearing Destor-Porcupine and Cadillac-Larder Lake fault zones are two parallel structures that show similar features and host ore bodies and showings with analogous structural settings and types of alteration and mineralization. Thus, the geological setting of the Kinojevis property, along the Destor-Porcupine gold trend, exhibits geological features similar to the Kerr Addison (10,457,000 oz of gold from 1938 to 1996) and Harker-Holloway (4.9 M metric tonnes grading 5.9 g/t Au) ore deposits in Ontario.

Cartier's President, Philippe Cloutier, was quoted as saying: "Cartier is proud of its focus in the Quebec portion of the world renowned mining region of the Southern Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The area is the host of several current and many past producing mines and an incubator of many small companies that have gone on to become major mining entities. The area is steeped in a mining tradition and know-how. Cartier seeks to grow by leveraging these fundamental assets."

In the coming weeks Cartier will launch the summer field programmes on its La Pause, Manneville, Kinojevis and Dollier properties.

The Board of Directors has proposed to modify the stock option plan. The proposed modification would allow Cartier to grant stock options representing a maximum of 10% of the shares outstanding (on a non-diluted basis). The modification is subject to the Exchange and shareholders approval at the annual and general meeting scheduled on May 20th, 2009.

Cartier Resources Inc. is a pure-play exploration company focused on gold in the prolific Abitibi Gold Belt in Quebec. The Company's portfolio of properties consists of wholly-owned projects which are managed by a team of geologists who have a proven track record of making significant discoveries. Cartier Resources' resolve is to increase shareholder value from acquisition to discovery through the use of time-tested exploration tools and techniques. A major portion of the 2009 exploration budget will be invested on the Company's flagship Kinojevis property.
