Cartier Resources Inc. Launches its Drill Program

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce that it is launching its Phase I diamond drill program on its flagship Kinojevis property. The program, which will commence on August 20, 2007, will consist of 25 holes for a total of 7000 metres along the 48 kilometre strike of the prolific Destor-Porcupine fault zone.

Ongoing compilation, geophysical interpretation and recent field work have guided the drill hole target generation. The property scale heliborne magnetometer and spectrometer survey results provide a solid base for geological interpretation.

The Phase I trenching and stripping program, focused on the MacCormack showing area, exposed highly deformed and altered ultramafic volcanics and intrusives as well as widespread quartz veining. Disseminated pyrite mineralization of the host rock and quartz veins is ubiquitous. Extensive detailed channel sampling has just been completed and submitted for analysis. All assay results are pending.

Cartier currently has three geologists and two prospectors in the field. Their work consists of property scale prospecting and detailed sampling of historic gold occurrences. Trenching and drilling will progress throughout the fall.

To date, the exploration program has met all its objectives. Diamond drilling will be focused on discovering new mineralization over key sections spread across the entire property.
