Cogitore Resources' Scott Lake Property: InfiniTEM Survey Reveals Impressive Discovery At 450 m Deep

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - Cogitore Resources Inc. has just recently reported a narrow but high grade intercept of volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS) within a larger 31.5 metre zone of stringer sulphides at the 100%-owned Scott Lake Project in Chibougamau, PQ. Drill hole SC-36 intersected a one metre massive sulphide interval, which assayed 10.3% copper, 19.4% zinc and 243 g/t silver starting at a vertical depth of 474 metres.

This discovery results from an InfiniTEM anomaly identified in 2008, by Abitibi Geophysics Inc. It all began in 2006 as an InfiniTEM survey test was carried out over the Central Lens in order to compare its response to conventional TDEM survey results. While the later did not respond to the known mineralization, InfiniTEM successfully identified a conductive anomaly on more than one survey line. Results even highlighted an InfiniTEM signal build-up to the west which led Cogitore Resources Inc. to subsequently drill holes SC-15 & SC-18. In 2007, the Central Lens was thereby extended an extra 100 metres to the west.

Following this success, a ground InfiniTEM survey was carried out to the west of the Central Lens during the winter of 2008. This survey revealed the presence of a new conductor interpreted at a depth of more than 350 metres. This anomaly was tested by three drillholes: one of which, SC-28 leading to the discovery of the 1750 Lens, and SC-30 which intercepted the West Lens, a large stringer- type massive sulphides mineralization zone (2% Cu over 25 metres) located at a vertical depth of 450 metres. Since then, succeeding drilling have been very encouraging and have exposed multiple mineralized horizons (Cogitore's press release of February 23rd, 2009).

Please recall that InfiniTEM has been developed by Abitibi Geophysics Inc., with the participation of SOQUEM and some financial contributions from the NRC and the CED. To this day, InfiniTEM has contributed to the discovery of numerous mineralized zones at remote depths that would have otherwise remained undetected by conventional methods. This unique technique is already patented in Canada, USA, Russia and Morocco and is presently patent pending in several other countries.

Be ready for summer 2009 as the scope of investigation of InfiniTEM® will double and could even reach 1 km deep! This more efficient instrumentation is based on newer technology developed and built in Val-d'Or, QC by TerraScope Instruments Ltd., sister company to Abitibi Geophysics Inc. This innovated technology is being sponsored by MISA and is also granted financial assistance from the MDEIE, NRC and CED.
