Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: New Zone Discovered on CR Project Near Houston, BC

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - July 19, 2005) - Manson Creek (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new zone on its CR copper - molybdenum porphyry project located 18 km south of Houston, British Columbia.

Drilling the source of the Burn copper-in-soil geochemical anomaly has intersected a blind porphyry body with copper and molybdenum mineralization in the form of vein hosted and disseminated chalcopyrite and molybdenite. Also present were strong potassic and phyllic alteration, commonly observed in porphyry deposits. The new zone is located immediately west of a fault previously thought to have cut off known mineralization on the property. Three holes were drilled in the Burn anomaly and all three intersected the porphyry on the west side of the fault, outlining new porphyry over 200 meters of strike length by 100 to 150 meters in width and still open to the west and at depth.

The recently completed eight hole drill program at CR, totaling 1580 meters, has increased the known strike length of the intrusion to greater than 900 meters. The samples from the drilling program are being trucked to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for analysis. Results are expected in approximately 4 - 6 weeks.

A program of detailed soil sampling and a total field magnetic survey has been completed on the Cuprum copper skarn project, Yukon. Results from this program are also expected in 4 - 6 weeks.

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.
