KAT Exploration-Stakes Large Land Package Over Copper Discoveries

MOUNT PEARL, NL--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  KAT Exploration Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KATX) www.KATexploration.com is pleased to announce that it has staked 346 new claims of approximately 125sq KM over impressive copper discoveries in the southern portion of the Bonavista peninsula, south of its Lucky properties in the Clifton area in eastern Newfoundland.

The company is very excited to be able to lay claims over such a favorable area where the geology, sub-aerial mafic and felsic volcanic rocks are the same as that hosting its Rusty Ridge (IOCG) property.

Two distinct types of copper mineralization exist. The first, occur as veins, stringers, and blebs of chalcocite, while the second occurs as disseminated chalcocite and chalcopyrite throughout the host rocks.

Large brecciated, hematitic felsic volcanic rocks permeate the southern portion of the new claims creating the same type of environment found on the Rusty Ridge property allowing for the same high potential of another Iron Oxide, Copper-Gold (IOCG) discovery.

With copper demands on the rise worldwide, KAT feels it important to have a well stacked portfolio of copper properties that would generate significant interest from major copper producers

With great accessibility to many areas of these claims by way of woods roads, it allows the company to carry out a fairly quick and extensive exploration program in late spring and early summer.
