Cartier Resources Inc.: Drilling Returns New Gold Zones on Kinojevis Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that it has discovered new gold zones on its Kinojevis property. The discoveries stem from its Phase I diamond drill program currently underway covering the entire property. The exploration program has confirmed the extension of the prolific Destor-Porcupine fault and discovered gold mineralization. To date, 14 of 25 holes planned for this fall have been completed for a total of 4,500 meters. The program consists of 7,000 meters of drilling in eight north to south sections in order to test the Destor-Porcupine fault zone which strikes through the property over a distance of 48 kilometers.

Partial results from one hole have been received. Hole KI-07-03 was drilled 300 meters west of the silver discovery (refer to August 27, 2007 press release), in the vicinity of the historical MacCormack gold showing. This hole is located at the south-western edge of the area where trenching and stripping were completed last summer. It cored through highly deformed and altered (fuchsite-sericite-iron carbonate) ultramafic volcanics with widespread quartz veining and local pyrite mineralization and a series of felsic dykes. A first dyke, believed to be the extension of the dyke hosting the silver discovery, was intersected from 19.8 to 21.8 and it returned 24.6 g Ag/t over 0.5 meters. A second dyke was intersected further south from 34.5 to 36.4 and it returned 1.5 g Au/t over 1.9 meters including 2.6 g Au/t over 0.70 meters. A third dyke was intersected further south from 68.9 to 95.3. The upper portion of this dyke returned 1.0 g Au/t over 4.6 meters including a section grading 1.8 g Au/t over 1.5 meters. The intersections are characterized by silica-albite-hematite alteration and 3 to 5 % disseminated pyrite. To date, Cartier has received only 30% of the results for the hole and the remaining sample results are pending.

Assays for holes KI-07-01, KI-07-02, and KI-07-04 to KI-07-14 are also pending. In order to resolve the situation of long delays for sample results, Cartier has made arrangements with a second laboratory which can provide results within a shorter period of time.

Assays from this summer's trenching program have all been received. The best assays are from highly altered and veined intrusives that flank the highly deformed and veined ultramafic volcanics. The results vary up to 0.9 g/t Au over one meter widths.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

The Kinojevis exploration program is conducted under the supervision of Mr. Philippe Berthelot, P. Geo., Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. 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 in Sainte-Germaine, Quebec or by ALS-Chemex in Val d'Or, Quebec, both accredited laboratories.
