and Wildrose Resources Ltd. (“Wildrose”) (TSX VENTURE:WRS) are pleased to announce Diamond Drill results from the on-going exploration program at the Spanish Mountain Project in Central British Columbia.

Vice President of Exploration Scott Weekes stated: “We are on track for a 43-101 resource to be completed on the Main Zone in the first quarter of 2008.

Hole 07-DDH-644 has intersected a wide zone better than 1.0 g/t gold in the Upper Argillite unit. This unit can be correlated across the entire main zone and forms the host to the bulk tonnage gold mineralization. In contrast, hole 07-DDH-634 drilled in the South Main zone intersected much higher grade gold mineralization in a greywacke host rock. This unit typically underlies the Upper Argillite and the combination of the consistently mineralized Upper Argillite with higher grade potential below, greatly enhances the economic viability of this project.”

including 30 metres of 1.52 g/t gold. And 19.5 metres of 1.02 g/t gold further down the hole. Both of these intercepts lie within a wide zone of 173.50 metres of 0.74 g/t gold.
