Cline Lake Gold Diamond Drill Results Announced

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2008) -


Cline Mining Corporation ("Cline" or the "Company") (TSX:CMK) is pleased to announce that is now in receipt all of the outstanding assay results form the recently completed diamond drill program on the 88-60 Zone on its Cline Gold Project located near Wawa, Ontario, Canada. The Cline Gold Project is located along the Goudreau Lake Deformation Zone, a major, regional gold-bearing, structure and is situated approximately 5 kilometers east of the Island Gold Mine operated by Richmont Mines Ltd and Patricia Gold Mines.

Follow-up Drill Program on the 88-60 Zone

In late 2007, a follow-up diamond drill program commenced to further define and attempt to expand the 88-60 Zone as well as the 07-10 Zone (see Press Releases dated July 11th, 2008 and April 24th, 2008). This drill program was completed in the second quarter of 2008. Twenty-four (24) holes totaling approximately 3637 meters were drilled to test the 88-60 and Lake Porphyry Zones while fourteen (14) holes totaling approximately 3225 meters were designed to test the 07-10 Zone and the nearby Number 3 Shaft Zone.

Significant assay results received since the July 11th, 2008 news release are given in the table below and are shown in the attached figure.

Cline has now successfully traced, by diamond drilling, the 88-60 Zone along strike for over 300 meters and to a vertical depth in excess of 200 meters. The deepest hole drilled to date down plunge (at a vertical depth of 220 meters) intersected 5.94 meters grading 12.0 gpt in hole CL 06-36 (see Press Release date July 11th, 2008).

A review of the historic diamond drilling carried out on the Cline Gold Property suggests that the structure which hosts the 88-60 Zone could extend for a minimum of 1000 meters across the northern part of the property.

Sample Preparation, Analyses and Security

The aforementioned assay and sample information as well as geological descriptions are taken from drill logs as prepared by the project geologists for the drill program. All drill cores are BQ in size and assays are completed on split half-cores, with the second half of the core kept for future reference. The samples are put into rice bags and are sealed with security locks for shipping directly to Swastika Laboratories, an accredited assay laboratory, in Swastika, Ontario. The samples are analysed using standard fire assay procedures with an AA finish. In addition to the standard quality control of the laboratory, a series of blanks and standards are inserted in every shipment for quality control purposes.
