Crescent Resources Releases Re-Calculated Assays From Uncle Sam Gold Project in Alaska

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2011) - Crescent Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CRC) is pleased to report revised drill assay results from the Uncle Sam Gold Project in Alaska. Crescent recently executed a definitive agreement with Millrock Resources whereby Crescent can earn a 100% interest in Millrock's rights to the property which is located 75 kilometers southeast of the city of Fairbanks. The project is an intrusion related gold target hosted in a similar age of intrusive rocks to those which host the Pogo Gold Mine approximately 60 kilometers to the east of Uncle Sam. A comprehensive exploration data package provided to Millrock by previous operators indicates that there are extensive anomalous areas defined by surface gold geochemistry and numerous significant drill intercepts that indicate strong potential for a large new gold discovery.

As a result of the prior exploration and drilling, numerous drill-ready targets exist on the Uncle Sam claim block. Crescent and Millrock are planning the 2011 exploration and drilling program which will include geochemical surveys, airborne high-resolution magnetic surveys and diamond drilling.

The following historical drill intersections have been re-calculated using a more recent industry standard 0.2 grams per tonne cut-off grade. As a result, several intersections show longer intervals of gold mineralization which demonstrate the potential for a large bulk tonnage gold deposit along with a higher grade component.
