Manson Creek Resources Exploration Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2007) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ('Manson Creek') (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to provide an exploration update for the CR copper - molybdenum project, located near Houston, British Columbia.

In advance of the upcoming diamond drill program, snow clearing of existing drill roads is now complete. Construction of additional drill roads and pads will begin this week with the diamond drill program scheduled to commence in late April.


The 2007 drill program will entail 2,000 meters (m) of NQ core drilling that will test the mineralized porphyry to extend it along strike and to depth. The CR porphyry is oriented east - west with a currently defined strike length of 975 m and widths of 100 - 180 m, it is open along strike and depth. Hy-Tech Drilling Ltd. has been contracted to complete the diamond drill program.

The CR copper - molybdenum project is located 17 kilometers south of Houston, British Columbia along an all weather forestry service road that also provides access to the Huckleberry copper - molybdenum mine located 80 kilometers to the south. The Huckleberry mine is currently operating with probable reserves of 21,913,000 tonnes of 0.400% copper and 0.007% molybdenum (Imperial Metals AIF, March 30, 2007).

Work to date by Manson Creek includes the initial drilling in 2005 and follow up ground geophysical surveys, Induced Polarization (IP), in 2006. The 1,580 m drill program in 2005 successfully expanded the known porphyry by over 250 m with the discovery of the West Zone. The last two holes of the program ended in mineralized porphyry hosting molybdenum rich stockworks. The zones of molybdenum rich stockworks include; 3.9 m of 0.086% molybdenum, 0.15% copper and 0.90 g/t silver and 14.1 m of 0.052% molybdenum, 0.17% copper and 0.96 g/t silver. A number of significant copper rich intervals were encountered including 63.58 m of 0.51% copper, 0.016% molybdenum, and 2.49 g/t silver.

The Qualified Person responsible for the design and implementation of the Field Program as well as the preparation of this news release was the President of the Company, Regan Chernish, P.Geol.
