Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd.: Drilling on Red Cliff Intersects 11.74 g/t Gold Over 7.93 m

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. ("Mountain Boy" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MTB) is pleased to announce assays from the first five holes of the Company's 2010 exploration program on the Red Cliff property.

Drilling is being conducted at the south end of the property in the area of the Red Cliff underground workings, 1.5 km from 2009 discovery holes DDH-MON-2009-1 to DDH-2009-Mon-11. The holes are being drilled off a drill station that has been created at the top of cliffs approximately 100 metres west of and 200 metres above the underground workings. All holes have intersected zones varying from 3 to 17.68 metres long, some of which contain chalcopyrite-pyrite-fine visible gold mineralization in quartz veins and veinlets that appear to be identical to the Montrose mineralization intersected in discovery holes DDH-2009-Mon-1 to DDH-2009-Mon-11.

The Montrose zone and the latest intersections in the area of the Red Cliff zone carry distinctive white-pink quartz veinlets with sparse chalcopyrite. Pictures of the intersected mineralization can be viewed on the company's website.

Based on surface exploration conducted early this year, the Company believes that the Red Cliff zone initially trends northwest in the area of the workings but flexes into a north trending zone and is part of a 1.5 km zone that includes the Montrose zone to the north. Rusty outcrop exposures which occur approximately midway between the two previously explored portions of the mineralized zone are believed to be surface expressions of the gold bearing zone. Further exploration will consist of detailed sampling of these rusty outcrops.

Significant results obtained in the first five holes are as follows:

DDH From (m) To (m) Width (m) Au g/t Cu %
RC-2010-1 76.98 80.79 7.93 11.74 0.44
  and 108.70 109.70 1.0 1.32 2.88
RC-2010-2 47.56 49.09 1.53 1.14 0.30
  and 53.65 54.89 1.22 1.08 0.88
RC-2010-4 58.47 63.41 4.94 3.0 0.72
RC-2010-5 66.46 74.24 7.78 12.19 1.44

DDH-2010-RC-2 & 3 were drilled at -45 and -50 degrees from the same set-up as DDH-2010-RC-1. The holes intersected quartz-pyrite-sparse chalcopyrite veins and veinlets with low gold values. The intensity of copper mineralization with associated fine visible gold increases with depth. DDH-2010-RC-4 was drilled at -55 degrees; DDH-2010-RC-1 was drilled at –60 degrees while DDH-2010-RC-5 was drilled at -65 degrees. All holes are surveyed with a down hole instrument to obtain an accurate azimuth and dip for possible future resource calculations. Surface collars will be surveyed once all 2010 drilling is complete.
