Pele Mountain Confirms Discovery of Offset Dike in Sudbury Mining Camp

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 22, 2005) - Pele Mountain Resources (TSX VENTURE:GEM) ("Pele" or the "Company") announced today definitive confirmation that the quartz-diorite dike discovered at its recently acquired Sudbury Offset project is indeed an Offset Dike. The discovery has been independently confirmed by petrological and lithogeochemical analysis completed by Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc. of the quartz-diorite which was collected from bedrock on the property.

Offset Dikes emanate radially outward from the Sudbury Igneous Complex, which forms the outer rim of the Sudbury Basin. Previous Offset Dike discoveries in the Sudbury area have hosted extensive mineralization as well as several successful mining operations. The Copper Cliff and Worthington Offset Dikes have been mined continuously for decades and have produced tens of billions of dollars worth of ore. The Foy Offset Dike, located approximately one kilometre northeast of Pele's new Offset Dike discovery, was also host to a past producing nickel mine.

The new discovery, named the "Pele Offset", has been observed in intermittent bedrock at several locations on Pele's mining claims and continues off of the property to the northwest. The potential strike length of the Pele Offset exceeds three kilometres on Pele's ground. Prospecting on the Pele property north of the Levack Township boundary has also discovered several occurrences of Sudbury Breccia, a known host lithology for footwall-style mineralization such as the recent high grade discovery by FNX Mining Company in Levack.

Pele President and CEO Al Shefsky stated, "Offset Dikes in the Sudbury camp continue to be exceptionally productive sources of economic mineralization. The acquisition of this exciting new property presents a compelling opportunity to add value for our Company and its shareholders. Pele continues to successfully pursue a generative strategy by acquiring and developing high-potential mineral projects in northern Ontario and then leveraging their exploration potential through strategic alliances with outstanding partners."

Pele has continued an aggressive staking campaign on the North Range of the Sudbury Igneous Complex since discovering the Pele Offset and currently holds approximately 350 mining claims units comprising a total of 14,000 acres.
