Decade Resources Ltd.: Drilling Intersects 12.19 g/t Gold Over 7.60 Metres in DDH-MON-2010-1 at Montrose

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2010) - Decade Resources Ltd. ("Decade" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DEC) reports that 57 drill holes have been completed on the Red Cliff property to date. The Red Cliff is a gold/copper property consisting of 8 Crown granted mineral claims situated in the Skeena Mining division approximately 25 miles north of the town of Stewart, British Columbia. The property is operated under joint venture and is owned 60% by Decade Resources Ltd. and 40% by Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd.


A total of 28 drill holes on 5 different panels tested south of and beneath the area of drilling in 2009. Mineralization in the Montrose zone contains high grade gold associated with a quartz-chalcopyrite-pyrite stockwork. To date, assays have only been received from the first hole. Assay results for the remaining 27 holes are pending, Results from the first hole which is 100 meters south and 60 meters below DDH-2009-MON –1 to 10 are as follows:

Drill holes in the Montrose zone extended mineralization both south and to depth of the mineralization encountered in drilling during 2009. Visible gold within chalcopyrite mineralization was observed in numerous holes. The mineralization appears to be associated with a fine grained, magnetite bearing dyke that is trending north-south. Airborne magnetics indicates that a strong linear anomaly is associated with this dyke both north and south of the present drilling The Company is planning another phase of drilling to follow up on the mineralization observed in the Montrose holes.


Drilling has also been conducted on 3 other different zones including: Red Cliff, a zone parallel to and north of the Red Cliff and the Waterpump. Assay results for the first 5 holes from the Red Cliff for the 2010 program were previously released (See press release 06-22-2010). Results have been received for another 25 holes and significant results follow.

A total of 23 drill holes oriented in 4 different panels located 200 metres above and 100 metres west of the Red Cliff underground workings tested the north trending portion of this zone. The Red Cliff zone remains open along strike and to depth. A zone 35 meters south of and parallel to the present Red Cliff zone was not tested with the 2010 drilling.

Assay results for the parallel zone and Waterpump zone do not warrant further drilling at this time.
