Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: Palomino Project Drilling Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 8, 2006) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX:MCK) ('Manson Creek') has received the assay results from the diamond drilling completed on the Palomino project, located near Houston, British Columbia.

A total of 76 split core samples of the porphyry dyke and flanking volcanic host were submitted to Eco-Tech Laboratory Ltd. in Kamloops, BC. All of the assay work was performed by ICP (28 element) and standard fire assay for gold.

The weighted average for the 14.33 meter intersection of porphyry returned values of 0.013% copper, including a 0.20 meter interval at 0.27% copper. The weighted gold value for the same intercept was 0.035 grams/tonne. The host volcanic rocks returned anomalous copper values, including an interval grading 0.96% copper over 0.30 meters.

While the program was successful in identifying a new mineralized porphyry system on the Palomino property, the Company has decided, due to the overall lower copper - gold grades than originally targeted, to terminate the option on the Palomino property so that it may focus on its activity on the five current exploration projects, including the Black Lake uranium property.

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.

This transaction is subject to all regulatory and exchange approvals.
