Cartier Resources Inc.: New Gold Zone on the Kinojevis Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 30, 2008) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") is pleased to announce the discovery of a new gold zone in the most easterly portion of its Kinojevis property.

Drill hole KI-07-05 hosts two gold intersections. An average of 2.26 g/t gold over 1.5 m (306.0 to 307.5 m) and 4.70 g/t gold over 0.7 m (309.0 to 309.7 m) have been obtained in hole KI-07-05. This gold zone is associated with a mafic volcanic rock intensely carbonatized (calcite and ankerite). The rock is fractured and is locally brecciated with 15% of quartz-carbonate veinlets and 0.5 to 1% of pyrite. The intersections are within a twelve-meter wide alteration zone located less than twenty meters north of the extension of the Destor-Porcupine fault, which was intersected by drill hole KI-07-06 located immediately to the south. This section of drill holes (KI-07-04, 05, 06) confirms the gold potential of the Eastern part of the Destor-Porcupine fault extension on the Kinojevis project.

This discovery adds to that of hole KI-07-03, located 40 km further west (refer to December 13, 2007 press release). To date, 15 of the 25 planned holes of Phase I were drilled for a total of 5,500 meters. The drill program consists of 7,000 meters of drilling in eight north-to-south sections, in order to test the extension of the Destor-Porcupine fault which strikes through the property over a distance of 48 kilometers. A map showing the drill holes completed to date, those in progress and planned is available on the company's website.

Assays for holes KI-07-07 to 15 are pending.
