Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd.: Drilling Extends High Grade Gold Zone Beneath the Historic Dunwell Mine Workings

STEWART, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MTB) ("Mountain Boy" or the "Company") reports that drilling is continuing at its wholly owned Dunwell Gold Mine. Since commencing the program, 9 holes have been completed and were directed at expanding the area of mineralization near the previously announced discovery zone. The holes have intersected zones 3 to 9 metres wide, containing pyrite, sphalerite, galena and chalcopyrite mineralization within quartz breccia and brecciated argillite zones next to altered weakly mineralized dyke rocks. Drilling is intersecting these zones between 170 and 260 metres below the No 4 level which is the lowest mined level. This drilling has extended the zone 50 metres along strike over a dip extent of 260 metres. Mineralization is open in all directions.

The Dunwell Gold Mine is a former producing gold mine, located 7.5 kilometres northeast of Stewart BC, 2 kilometres off paved highway 37A. The property has excellent infrastructure being at a low elevation allowing for exploration year round.

Significant results from some of the 2010 drilling are as follows:

DDH No. From (m) To (m) Length (m) Au g/t Ag g/t Pb % Zn % Cu %
D4-10-9 215.55 222.26 6.71 14.27 37.81 0.25 0.63 0.02
D4-10-10 216.77 221.95 5.18 5.31 62.4 0.52 0.80 0.03
D4-10-11 217.07 222.93 5.85 4.74 55.88 0.09 0.72 0.02

D4-10-15 208.84 213.14 4.3 15.62 42.0 0.04 0.40 1.44

Core intersection widths are interpreted as being true width given the dip of the mineralized zone.

Core is being logged and assay results will be released upon receipt.

Ed Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of exploration on behalf of the company. All assaying is being carried out by Assayers Canada in their Vancouver facilities.
