Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: Phase One Meridian Gold-Silver Project Diamond Drilling Completed

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ('Manson Creek') (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first phase of diamond drilling on its Meridian gold - silver project, located south of Revelstoke, British Columbia.

The seven hole, 1,141 meter, drill program effectively tested a number of prospective zones proximal to the workings of the historical Eva Mine. All of the drill holes intersected shear zones and the associated quartz veins along strike and to depth of the historical workings. These workings exploited areas of regional shearing hosting gold and silver bearing mesothermal quartz veins.

All of the drill core samples are at the EcoTech Laboratory, located in Kamloops, British Columbia, for assay analysis.


Manson Creek has consolidated five historic past producing gold - silver mines on the current, road accessible, 675 hectare claim block. The Meridian Camp was active in the early 1900's but the fragmented land ownership at the time did not allow for growth and the camp faded after only a few years of production.

The Company believes that the potential for significant mineralization is high in areas near and below the limited historic mine workings. Gold and silver mineralization on the block is within and proximal to quartz veins related to the regional scale Camborne Fault which bisects the Meridian Claim group and hosts many of the historic deposits.

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.
