Cusac Drills 1.15 Grams Gold Over 87 Meters and 6.39 Grams Over 15 Meters at Taurus Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - David H. Brett, President, Cusac Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX:CQC)(OTCBB:CUSIF)(FRANKFURT:DCB) (hereinafter "Cusac"), reports that assay results from 07TC-03, 04, 06 and 07 at the Taurus Deposit continue to confirm broad zones of near surface low-grade gold mineralization and also reveal higher grade zones within the deposit. Hole 07TC-03 returned 1.15 grams per tonne gold over 87.2 meters, including 2.14 grams over 30.3 meters. Hole 07TC-04 returned 1.81 grams over 66.8 meters, including, 15.2 meters grading 6.39 grams. Hole 07TC-07 assayed 0.93 grams over 116.5 meters, including 30.6 meters grading 2.65 grams. The foregoing grades are not capped. Please see detailed results in the table below for the uncapped and capped grades. The Taurus Deposit hosts a 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 1.04 million ounces of gold and is located near Cassiar in northern British Columbia.

Cusac is completing a 20 hole infill, step-out, and metallurgical diamond drill program designed to increase the overall tonnage and grade of the deposit, improve confidence in the resource calculation, and obtain material for detailed metallurgical testing. Further drill results from the Taurus Deposit are expected in the coming weeks.

All the holes of the 2007 Taurus drilling program have intersected intensely altered volcanics hosting abundant quartz veins and stringers, some containing visible gold. These types of mineralized zones are known as either T4 (greater than 5% quartz) or T4A (less than 5% quartz) and have shown good gold recoveries in previous metallurgical studies. Cusac geologists are also reviewing several kilometers of previously unsampled drill core stored on site to test potential low grade mineralization that was overlooked in past drilling. Any additional low grade material discovered could add resources to the deposit.

"The Taurus Deposit continues to show potential increase in grade and overall size," said Cusac CEO, David Brett. "Our team is doing an excellent job moving this large scale gold resource forward quickly and efficiently."
