Pacific Comox Reports 3.5% Copper, 0.2 g/tonne Gold, & 16 g/tonne Silver Reported for 21 Meter Sample Across Surface of New Zone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - Pacific Comox Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PCM) reports the assays for 26 surface samples, 3 meter long chip samples from the area north of the Micho copper/gold/silver zone. All samples were anomalous.

The strongest results were reported for a 300 meter east-west trending zone designated "Tajo de Cobre" located 800 meters north of the Micho RC drilling area. Of the 12 samples on this trend, 7 were taken across a face blasted to get fresh material and averaged 3.5% copper, 0.2 g/tonne gold and 16 g/tonne silver. The 5 other samples were taken in four locations from surface material (not blasted) within a 200 meter long alteration zone to the west. All the samples were anomalous in gold, silver and copper.

Four samples were taken to extend the area covered by 7 previously reported surface samples 200 meters northwest of the Micho drilling. The 11 samples averaged 3.8 g/tonne gold, 178 g/tonne silver and 0.55% copper.

The 10 RC holes drilled on the Micho Zone were previously reported with all holes intersecting mineralization. Hole 62 reported 6 meters starting at surface of 1.5 g/t gold, 51 g/tonne silver, 0.05% copper and the next 23 meters averaged 0.01 g/tonne gold, 10 g/tonne silver, and 1.1% copper, with the hole ending in mineralization.

The new results enlarge the area of strong gold/silver/copper results in the Micho-Tajo area to 1,200 meters east- west and 1,100 meters north-south. See Table 1 for the current assays.

Bhagwat Singh P. Eng. serves as the qualified person (QP) for the exploration programs under the definitions of National Instrument 43-101. The geologist on the Mabel program is Cesar Lemas. The samples were collected by Company staff and transported to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility at Hermosillo, Sonora which forwards prepared samples to the ALS Chemex Vancouver facility for assay.
