Cash Minerals Confirms Lumina Uranium Mineralization Ranging up to 7.67% '153.4 lb/ton' over 1.4 km; 6,000 Metre Drill Program set to Commence

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 12, 2005) - Cash Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CHX) today announced results of summer 2005 sampling and radiometric prospecting at its Lumina uranium property in the Wernecke Mountains of east-central Yukon Territory; and that a 6,000 metre drill program has been set to commence for its Wernecke Mountain properties.

The main mineral showing (Jack Flash) has been exposed for the first time by recent glacial melting (see projects section for photographs). It consists of fracture zones and veins on a cirque wall. Radioactive boulders containing pitchblende and uranium oxides derived from this showing are found in a 1.4 km long by 100 m wide zone atop a glacier. A total of 31 representative boulder samples were collected by Cash Minerals and previous owners. Results are below:

% U3O8 U3O8 lb/ton
Jack Flash Showing From To From To
Range 0.025 7.67 0.5 153.4
Average grade 1.22 24.4

A second mineral showing (Ram) located 4.5 km north of the Jack Flash showing, is exposed in two trenches located 50 m apart. Chip sampling across this vein by previous owners assayed 0.910% (18.2 lb/ton) U3O8 over 2 m and 0.615% (12.3 lb/ton) U3O8 over 1 m. The trenches did not fully expose the width of the vein and it is open along strike in both directions under overburden.

Basil Botha, President and CEO, commented "We are very impressed and enthusiastic with the average grade of 1.22% (24.4 lb/ton) U3O8 at Jack Flash. Based on these positive results we have decided to immediately mobilize a 6,000 metre drill program at Lumina. Initial work will focus on the Ram target because of available water but ultimately numerous targets will be tested, and these of course will include Jack Flash."

The Lumina property measures approximately 20 sq km and hosts widespread uranium enriched talus and glacially dispersed boulders, the sources of which will be drilled in 2005/2006.

Cash Minerals Ltd. is on target to earn up to a 75% interest in six uranium properties in the Yukon under option agreements with Twenty-Seven Capital Corp.

The 2005 exploration program at Lumina was conducted by Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited under the supervision of W.A. Wengzynowski, P.Eng. Mr. Wengzynowski, the designated QP within the meaning of NI 43-101. All analyses were conducted at the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon using aqua regia digestion followed by ICP analysis.
