Ressources Appalaches: Discovery of Extensions of the Ecum Secum Mine

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Ressources Appalaches (TSX VENTURE:APP) has discovered the extensions of the former mine on its Ecum Secum property in Nova Scotia. Grades in excess of 1 g/t of gold have been identified in six boreholes over a length of 300 metres, including one intersection of 14 g/t of gold over one metre.

The target structure, containing gold-bearing quartz veins, has been followed over a length of 300 metres and down to a depth of about 50 metres. The boreholes were distributed over five drill sections spaced 50 to 100 metres apart. The structure remains open both laterally and at depth.
