Cream Minerals Ltd.: Evaluation of Once Bocas Silver-Gold Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 11, 2006) - Cream Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMA)(OTCBB:CRMXF)(FWB:DFL) ("Cream") is pleased to report results from examination and re-evaluation of the ONCE BOCAS ZONE located 250 m W of the DOS HORNOS NORTH ZONE on its Nuevo Milenio property south-west of Tepic, Nayarit State, Mexico.

The program of re-evaluating data from the Nuevo Milenio property was extended during Nov. 2005 to the Once Bocas mineralized zone. The Once Bocas zone consists of a quartz stock work breccia zone up to +70 m wide which hosts 4 parallel quartz breccia veins and has been traced along strike for a distance of 1.5 km.

Past work, consisting of cat trenching, surface geological mapping and diamond drilling during 2002 and 2003, indicated a 250 m strike length of possible ore grade gold - silver mineralization. The following is a summary of assays obtained including previously report Drill Data.

Following the above Diamond Drill program, a field program was initiated in November 2005 which located 5 new shafts, 2 old Spanish Mines and 1 decline. The workings were opened and channel sampled where possible with results as follows:

The results of the program showed that the mineralized quartz-breccia veins and the intervening stock-work zone have continuity along strike and at depth. The average width of the breccia vein samples is biased by the narrower widths of samples taken in the old Spanish workings (see sections, plans and maps that have been posted on the Company's website at www.creamminerals.com).

The tested area contains four known vein structures and adjoining quartz stock work within the Once Bocas Structure of which an area of only 250 by 100 meters, out of a known strike length of 1,500 meters, was sampled. Further drilling and underground work will be required to define the overall resource size and grade.

Exploration on the Nuevo Milenio property is under the supervision of Mr. Ferdinand (Fred) Holcapek, P.Eng. the Company's "Qualified Person" for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.
