Goldbrook Expands the Ni-Cu-PGE Sulphide Zone at Mystery

DDH MYS08-006 intersects 73.1 metres of 0.72% Ni, 0.99% Cu and 3.25 g/t PGE+Au DDH MYS08-005 intersects 4 metres of 0.64% Ni, 3.11% Cu and 41.29 g/t PGE+Au

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2008) -


Goldbrook Ventures Inc. ("Goldbrook") (TSX VENTURE:GBK) is pleased to announce further results from its 2008 Raglan project diamond drilling program. The company contracted three drill rigs from Bradley-Nuvumiut (Rouyn-Noranda) for a minimum of 12,000 metres of BQ-size core. The program also includes geological mapping, prospecting and an extensive remote sensing survey. Field crews mobilized to the Belanger base camp in early July. As of early September over 35 drillholes totaling about 9,062 metres had been completed.

Mystery Prospect

As of September Goldbrook completed 26 drillholes totaling over 6,160 metres on the Mystery prospect. These holes are drilled on nine vertical sections along a strike length of about 525 metres. This release reports lab assay data for an additional four drillholes. Three drillholes are on section 490850 (see Goldbrook website for sections and drillhole location map), located 50 metres east of the drilling data on Section 490800 released on September 3, 2008; and, one hole is on section 490775, located 25 metres west of the 490800 section. As of this news release 26 drillholes have been sampled, and have been submitted, or are in transit, to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for assay. Assays are pending.

Drilling to date indicates the potential for a major new Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide zone at the Mystery prospect, which is about 10 kilometres west of Goldbrook's Getty-Sylvie deposits. The Mystery drill program is focused on testing an extensive, coincident EM and magnetic response from a 2007 airborne geophysical VTEM survey, and a very strong downhole EM anomaly obtained during the 2007 drill program.

Highlights of the Mystery drilling to date include:

MYS08-005, -006 and -007 were drilled on Section 490850 East, below the previously reported MYS08-004 and 50 metres east of the first drillholes on Section 490800 East (see September 3, 2008 press release), to further delineate the discovery of the sulphide mineralized zone at the Mystery prospect.

- MYS08-005 intersected sulphides over 46 metres from 186.0 to 232.0 metres downhole, with an average grade of 0.74% Ni, 1.58% Cu and 6.80 g/t PGE+Au. This 46-metre section includes a 4 metre section from 200 to 204 metres with an average grade of 0.64% Ni, 3.11% Cu and 41.30 g/t PGE+Au.

- MYS08-006 intersected 73.1 metres from 252 to 325.1 metres downhole, with an average grade of 0.72% Ni, 0.99% Cu and 3.25 g/t PGE+Au.

MYS08-008 was drilled at -55 degrees on Section 490775 East, 75 metres west of the drilling reported above, and 25 metres west of Section 490800 containing Mystery drillholes MYS08-001, -002 and -003 (see press release Sept 3, 2008) and MYS07-001, -002.

- MYS08-008 intersected 46 metres from 145.0 to 191.0 metres downhole, with an average grade of 0.65% Ni, 0.90% Cu and 2.14 g/t PGE+Au

Jilin Jien Nickel Joint Venture Agreement

Goldbrook Ventures has announced (see press release of August 29, 2008) that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Jilin Jien Nickel Industry Co., Ltd. of Panshi, Jilin, China for the exploration and development of Goldbrook's Raglan District properties comprising some 891,000 acres in northern Quebec. Jien may earn a 50% interest in the property by providing funding of $45 million over three years for exploration on the property, plus any funds rebated by the government for expenditures during the first two years. Upon Jien acquiring a 50% interest, any government rebate from exploration in the third year will be applied to a fourth year work program and other costs will be funded 50% by Jien and 50% by Goldbrook.


The 2008 exploration program is developing Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide targets, along the Belanger and related trends, as part of the longer term exploration objectives of the company. Drilling at Mystery appears to confirm a vertical to steeply dipping, mineralized zone of about 30 to 50 m thickness at sections 490800 and 490850 East, which is tested to depths of between 250 and 300 metres. Drillhole MYS08-005 also includes a 4-metre section containing an average of 41.30 g/t PGE+Au, which includes 9.85 g/t platinum. Continued drilling of the Mystery zone to define the extent of the sulphide mineralization is a high priority for the 2008 drilling season. Further assay results will be released as they become available.
