Kent Exploration Inc.: Saskatchewan Coal Permit Applications Made

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Kent Exploration Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KEX) reports it has submitted coal permit applications to the government of Saskatchewan's Energy Resources Permitting Office. The application encompasses 18,432 Hectares (approximately 45,546 acres) in east-central Saskatchewan in proximity to the recent Goldsource Mines Inc (TSX VENTURE:GXS) discovery.

The recent announcement of the discovery by Goldsource of coal in two drill holes 1,600 metres apart suggests the potential for a much larger coal system. Goldsource reports it believes the coal it encountered is from the Mannville/Swan River group of Cretaceous age. Coal structures of the Cretaceous age are reported to be generally very large and can encompass several thousand square kilometers.
