Tenajon Resources Corp.: Kansas Drill Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 24, 2005) - Tenajon Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TJS), Pinnacle Mines Ltd. and Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. are pleased to announce that recent drilling on the Kansas claim has continued to encounter gold mineralization including 36.58 meters grading 1.97 gpt of gold in hole DDH-2005-48 and 20.53 meters grading 1.88 gpt of gold in hole DDH-2005-49. Several other auriferous intersections were also encountered in both holes (see table below).

In addition Pinnacle and Mountain Boy have announced that drill holes DDH-2005-50 to 52 within their adjoining Big Missouri claim have intersected high grade gold mineralization, including 15.2 meters or 49.9 feet grading 34 gpt or 1.09 ounces/ton within the Main Breccia Zone, 133 meters north of the Kansas claim border. Tenajon has been informed by Pinnacle Mines Ltd. that the Main Breccia Zone extends onto the Kansas claim.

Holes within the Main Breccia Zone have reportedly encountered a new style of mineralization consistent with the high gold and silver bearing mineralization that was mined in the upper levels of the nearby Silbak-Premier mine, which produced 4.7 million tons that yielded approximately 1.8 million ounces gold, 41 million ounces silver, 4.2 million pounds copper, 62 million pounds lead and 20 million pounds zinc.

The Kansas claim is the subject of an option/joint venture with Tenajon Resources Ltd., pursuant to which Pinnacle and Mountain Boy are earning a 60% interest through the expenditure of $1,000,000 on exploration over four years. The Companies can jointly earn a 70 per cent interest in the Kansas claim by exercising an option to deliver a feasibility study within four years of earning the initial 60%.

The Kansas claim is strategically situated 24 kilometers north of Stewart on the Granduc road. The infrastructure in the area is excellent with good roads, power and water.

Assay results from drill holes are released when received from Assayers Canada and the assay data has been through internal validation of quality assurance and quality control. Pinnacle Mines has established a sampling and assay control program with blind insertion of assay standards; noting that there is also an internal quality control and quality assurance program in place at Assayers Canada that includes blanks, duplicates and standards.

E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the project operator. Drill core and trench samples are assayed by Assayers Canada of Vancouver, BC.
