Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: Drilling Underway On CR Porphry Project Near Houston, BC

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - July 5, 2005) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture:MCK) is pleased to announce that drilling is underway on the CR copper - molybdenum porphyry located 17 km south of Houston, British Columbia. The planned 8 drill hole program will target the mineralized porphyry and the Burn geochemical soil anomaly.

The drill program currently in progress is planned for 1,200 meters of NQ core drilling that will verify and expand upon historical drilling results and test for the source of the Burn anomaly. The mapped mineralized porphyry is oriented east - west and is over 700 meters in length with an approximate mapped width of 100 to 180 meters.

A detailed soil sampling program that followed up on the discovery made in 2004 of the Burn anomaly was completed in June 2005. The soil program consisted of infill sampling lines that confirmed the high copper values seen in the previous years sampling and provided further detail to assist in the planning of the drill program. The Burn copper anomaly encompasses a zone 500 by 200 meters with copper values in soil samples of greater than 100 ppm (parts per million), including a core 280 meters by 70 meters with copper in soils ranging in values from 750 ppm to 16,500 ppm (1.65% copper). This zone is located immediately along strike and to the west from the previously identified mineralized porphyry and could represent an extension of the mineralized porphyry.

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