Wildcat - Doe Run Canadian Exploration Alliance Commences Work on Newly Acquired Bathurst, NB Area Properties

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2013) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WEL) is pleased to announce that two properties under the Wildcat-Doe Run Canadian Exploration Alliance (the "Alliance") have been acquired and that work has commenced in preparation for drill programs to be started following the spring breakup.

Wildcat's partner in the Alliance, Doe Run Canadian Exploration ULC ("Doe Run Canadian"), has acquired under option the Island Lake property, located approximately 4 km southeast of the former Heath Steele copper-lead-zinc mine in Northumberland County, NB and the Sewell Brook property, located approximately 40 km southeast of Grand Falls, in Victoria County, NB. Wildcat has commenced geological data compilation and analysis on both properties. The purpose of this work is to evaluate existing information on each of the properties and to develop work programs and targets for drilling commencing in May or June.

Wildcat's CEO, John Knowles, commented "Wildcat is delighted to be working with the Doe Run Canadian team, and the Alliance provides a unique opportunity to explore with the combined corporate strengths of a well-established major and a junior explorer. Both companies will benefit from any exploration successes."

In December, 2012, Wildcat entered into the Alliance, a strategic, base metal exploration agreement with Doe Run Canadian, a British Columbia registered company (see news release December 11, 2012). Under the terms of the Alliance, properties are acquired and held by Doe Run Canadian, subject to Wildcat's right, under certain circumstances, to earn up to a 30% interest in one or more properties.

In addition to exploration under the Alliance, Wildcat is exploring for gold and base metals on its current property portfolio, and adding to this portfolio when new opportunities arise. A winter program of approximately 9,000 metres of diamond drilling on Wildcat's gold projects in Bissett, MB commenced recently (see news release February 26, 2013).

Wildcat's exploration program is managed by Tom Lewis, P. Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, who has reviewed all technical information in this release.
