Pacific Comox Starts Drill Program on Mabel Gold, Silver, Copper Property in Mexico

2,000 Meter Plus Drilling Program Started on Mabel Gold-Silver-Copper Property in Sonora Mexico

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) - Pacific Comox Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PCM) -

Mabel Gold-Silver-Copper Property in Northern Sonora State Mexico

The Company reports a minimum 2,000 meter RC drilling program has started on the Mabel property. The objective of the program is to increase the density of drill holes in several areas where previous drilling has intersected shallow gold/silver mineralization and to also test for the lateral extension of these areas especially where 3 meter long chip samples indicated mineralization (previously reported).

The initial part of the program will test for extensions to the south and west of the 62 closely spaced mineralized holes previously reported in the Carmelitas North Zone which averaged 1.4 g/tonne gold & 48 g/tonne silver over average intervals of 5 meters starting at/near surface in many holes. This zone encompasses an area approximately 330 meters on a northwest-southeast trend and averages about 75 meters wide.

Infill drilling is planned for the adjoining Carmelitas South Zone where 7 of 9 holes previously drilled reported mineralization averaging 1.4 g/tonne gold and 48 g/tonne silver over 3 meters at/near surface.

Drilling will also test the Gate North, Gate South, Ridge and Micho Zones. The drilling program will provide additional drill hole data for a resource estimate on the Carmelitas and other areas of at/near surface goldsilver mineralization on the Mabel property.

In the Micho area Comox previously reported in hole RC-62, 6 meters of 1.5 g/tonne gold, and 51 g/tonne silver followed by 23 meters of 1.1% oxide copper and 10 g/tonne silver.

The Mabel property is about a 2 hour drive south from Tucson, Arizona. Robert Hill P. Eng. serves as the qualified person (QP) for the sampling and exploration programs under the definitions of National Instrument 43-101. The geologist on the Mabel program is Cesar Lemas. In the RC drill program the product is bagged separately for each meter of drill advance. A split sample is shipped by Company personnel to the Swastika Laboratory at Swastika, Ontario, an accredited laboratory.
