Kent Exploration Acquires Silver/Lead/Zinc Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2008) - Kent Exploration Inc (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KEX) reports it has staked seven claims totaling approximately 1,300 ha, in north-east Saskatchewan.

The claims, which the Company considers to be highly prospective for silver/lead/zinc, are immediately to the east of Courtney Lake and abut, and are on strike with, the Wakefield Lake zinc prospect held by Golden Arch Resources.

The Wakefield property reportedly straddles a steeply dipping quartzite bed that hosts a zinc deposit. Surface drilling by Falconbridge in the 1950's indicated a deposit of approximately 5 million tons reportedly grading 2.65% zinc and 0.35% lead, which included a higher grade core of 2.9 million tons averaging 3.67% zinc and 0.53% lead(i).

(i) The above data, while believed to be accurate, has been derived from a report on the George Lake Zinc Deposit by S. Karup-Moeller and J. J. Brummer, Economic Geology, Vol 65, 1970 PP 862-874. The data has not been independently verified by the Company and as such should not be relied upon.
