Pacific Comox Resources Ltd. Reports the Assays for the 5 Hole Diamond Drill Program

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 19, 2005) - Pacific Comox Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PCM)

- Assays reported for 5 diamond drill holes in the area of the former underground mine at the Ryan Lake copper/molybdenum property,

- Hole PC-05-03 returned an intersection of 29.1ft from 199.5ft grading 0.61% copper, 0.074% (1.63 lbs/tonne) molybdenum, plus gold and silver values.

Pacific Comox Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PCM) reports the assays for the 5 hole diamond drill program which tested the open pit, bulk-tonnage potential of the northern part of the area mined from underground during the 1950-62 period. The assays for the five holes are summarized below in Table 1.

The results demonstrate the potential to extend the mineralized zone east and west on strike with the former underground workings and at depth.

Hole PC-05-02 returned an intersection of 52ft from 95.7ft, grading 0.44% copper, 0.030% (0.66 lbs/tonne) molybdenum, 0.05g/tonne gold and 0.08g/tonne silver.

Hole PC-05-03 intersected the underground workings before reaching the targeted depth. The hole returned a 29.1ft intersection from 199.5ft, grading 0.61% copper, 0.074% (1.63 lbs/tonne) molybdenum, 0.06g/tonne gold and 4.87g/tonne silver.

Hole PC-05-05 returned an intersection of 61.1ft from 194.7ft, grading 0.56% copper, 0.052% (1.15 lbs/tonne) molybdenum, 0.11g/tonne gold and 4.60g/tonne silver.

The optioned Ryan Lake copper-molybdenum property consists of 10 claims totaling 513 acres, located near Matachewan, and Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The property was put it into production in 1950 at a 150 ton/day rate with a shaft sunk to 459 feet with development on 4 levels. The development extended for 1,000 feet on an east-west direction and about 500 feet north-south. The J. F. Ariz report dated October 20, 1978 gave the production during the 1950-1957 period as 163,490 tons grading 1.5% copper, 0.008 oz of gold and 0.21 oz of silver. A successor Company was also reported to have processed 6,000 tons grading 1.3% copper and 0.4% molybdenite in 1964 from an open pit approximately 1,000 ft north of the underground mine. No production or significant exploration is reported on the property since 1966.

As previously reported Comox also has an option to acquire the mill on the property which is currently processing barite. The mill has crushing and grinding capacity of several hundred tonnes per day and would be a major asset going forward to facilitate the resumption of copper/molybdenum production on the property.

The historical production data given above is not in compliance with N.I. 43-101. Robert Hill P. Eng. serves as the qualified person (QP) for the sampling and exploration program under the definitions of National Instrument 43-101, reviewed the above mentioned reports, and supervised the drilling program. The geologist on the program was Murray McGill P. Geo.. The samples were assayed by Swastika Laboratories Ltd. at Swastika, Ontario.
