Trenching Targets Coincident Gold Geochemical and Geophysical Anomalies on Cream Mineral's Goldsmith Property, BC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) - Cream Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMA)(OTCBB:CRMXF)(FRANKFURT:DFL)(WKN 866036) ("Cream" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has received permit approval to resume the excavator trenching program that began in the fall 2007 on the Goldsmith Property, located in southeastern British Columbia. The Goldsmith Property contains numerous historic (circa 1903), small, high-grade workings within a 3-kilometre belt of altered volcanic and sedimentary host rocks. High-grade gold mineralization occurs in numerous quartz veins that range up to 5 metres in width.

Previously, Cream obtained extremely encouraging results from rock grab and chip samples collected from the numerous small-scale historic workings (see News Release dated October 9, 2007). In 2007, six excavator trenches were dug in the area of the historic Bullock and Goldsmith workings. Two of the trenches were put in to cross-section the geology between old adits/trenches. One trench exposed the Goldsmith V2 vein for 64 metres along its strike, and three short trenches opened up areas where prior surface sampling (from a road cut) returned high gold assay results. An additional 20 excavator trenches, planned and permitted, will be excavated in early summer 2008 as soon as snow conditions allow. These proposed trenches include excavating around several of the historic workings, plus exposing bedrock in areas of geochemical and geophysical anomalies.

Results from the trenches completed to date show high gold values from rock chip and grab samples, most notably in trenches GT-1, GT-2 and GT-5 (see Table below).

The planned excavator trenches for 2008 are located within a strong, greater than 2 kilometre long, gold soil geochemical anomaly coincident with a series of strong aeromagnetic anomalies.

Aeroquest Limited conducted a 160-line kilometre helicopter-borne magnetic and AeroTem II Electromagnetic survey over the Goldsmith Property in 2006. Encouraging results from the airborne survey show that in general, conductors line up well with the regional lithological trends. One strong conductor is continuous through the mineralized area for a distance of nearly 2.5 kilometres. The north end of this conductor, which contains the Bullock and Goldsmith workings and coincident gold geochemical anomalies, offsets to the west.

A second strong conductor runs parallel to this first one, approximately 1.2 kilometres to the east, basically trending along the southwest side of the Lardeau River valley. This conductor trends strongly for the length of the property and contains the Lucky Jack workings.

Total field magnetics show a large magnetic high trend, averaging 800 metres in width and lying between the two conductive zones. The magnetic tilt derivative plot show this correlative relationship between magnetics and gold geochemistry even better, with a series of linear magnetic features trending between the two main conductors and a second slightly weaker series parallel to the southwest conductor and to the westerly offset of that conductor. A southwest splay trends sub-parallel to the first conductor and exactly mimics the gold soil geochemical anomaly. This area represents the main "target" for trenching in 2008.
