Cusac Commences Oro Vein Drilling, Acquires New Taurus Area Claims

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - David H. Brett, President, Cusac Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX:CQC)(OTCBB:CUSIF) (the "Company"), reports that the Company has commenced diamond drilling on the Oro Vein located within the Taurus II area of the Company's 100% owned Table Mountain Property in Northern BC. The Oro Vein system has strong potential to host both high-grade vein and large tonnage lower grade gold mineralization. Also, the Company has acquired the Wing Gold 1-3 and a number of other Table Mountain area mineral claims from an individual for $10,000 and 200,000 common shares of stock.

The Wing Gold 1-3 claims cover the historic "Wing's Canyon" area, location of a massive swarm of quartz veins outcropping that is part of a larger, northeasterly-trending quartz vein system. Wings Canyon formed part of the original Taurus Project as explored by Cyprus Canada in 1995-1996. The system connects the current Taurus Project to the north and the Taurus II Project to the south and lies 1.5 kilometers from the Company's current drilling at the Oro Vein. The Wing's Canyon area was considered by Cyprus to be prospective for Taurus style low-grade, near surface, bulk-minable gold mineralization.

Cusac is working with American Bonanza Gold Corporation to complete a definitive agreement relating to the consolidation of the 1.04 million ounce (inferred) Taurus Project as soon as possible. Once the agreement has closed, the Company plans to initiate a comprehensive exploration program.

"The acquisition of the Wings Canyon ground unites the Taurus and Taurus II areas and adds significantly to Cusac's bulk tonnage exploration potential," said Cusac CEO David Brett. "The Cassiar Gold Camp is well known for high-grade gold production, but we feel the area's larger scale gold production potential will be the emerging story going forward."

Cusac Gold Mines Ltd., in existence since 1966, is a gold production and exploration company focused on the Cassiar Gold Camp in northern British Columbia. Please visit our website for more information.
