Manson Creek- Geophysical Crew to Mobilize to Cuprum Project, Molygarchy Sample Returns 0.105% Molybdenum

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ("Manson Creek") (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to announce the mobilization of a geophysical crew to the Cuprum copper-zinc project, located 50 kilometers northwest of Whitehorse, Yukon and the receipt of sample assays from the Molygarchy project, located 40 kilometers northeast of Whitehorse.

A total field magnetic ground geophysical survey will begin in early March, with the crew staging out of the nearby town of Whitehorse. The survey will cover the projected closure of the two 500-meter striking limbs of the previously discovered Wishbone anomaly. The Wishbone anomaly is a large linear, weak to moderately magnetic causative body that is locally coincident and along strike with the known mineralized magnetic skarn system. The skarn is exposed in discontinuous outcrop for a strike length in excess of 700 meters. Much of the anomaly occurs in areas of shallow glacial overburden.

The road accessible, 600 hectare, Cuprum property hosts a mineralized magnetite skarn exposed along strike for 760 meters in discontinuous outcrop with widths of 9 to 30 meters. Grab samples of the mineralized skarn have returned values indicative of local high-grade mineralization including 7.5% copper, 2.2% zinc, and 123 grams/tonne silver. Geochemical soil samples collected over the east limb of the magnetic anomaly returned prospective assays of 44 to 201 parts per million (ppm) copper, 204 to 1,275 ppm zinc, 10 to 331 ppm lead, and 0.2 to 1.2 ppm silver.

The Company has also received assay results for samples collected during the late November due diligence visit on the Molygarchy property. Three grab samples from outcrop were collected along the exposed 50 meter long main showing with the results shown in Table 1.

Table 1. Molygarchy Sample Results

Sample Molybdenum % Copper % Silver grams/tonne
A 0.105 0.066 0.3
B 0.044 0.024 0.5
C 0.020 0.004 0.2

Manson Creek is strongly encouraged by these initial results and is currently planning an ambitious program for 2008. Exploration work will include geological mapping, prospecting and geophysical surveying that will delineate the open-ended mineralized trend. Once the surface work is complete, the Company intends to drill a number of holes to test the mineralization at depth.

The 732 hectare Molygarchy property, located proximal to infrastructure and roads, hosts disseminated fine to coarse crystalline molybdenum mineralization in a strongly altered granitic intrusive. Sampling conducted at the time of the discovery included 72 rock samples with the highest reported assay being 0.440% molybdenum (Mo). Nine samples returned values greater than 0.100% Mo and thirty-six samples returned assays of greater than 0.010% Mo.

The due diligence samples were assayed by ICP methods at Eco Tech Laboratories of Kamloops.
