Vancouver, B.C - Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSXV: CEM) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling on its 100% owned Palmer project in southeast Alaska. There are two drills currently on site and the Company plans to drill 5000 to 7500 meters (16,000-25,000 feet) on the project this year, focusing on the follow-up of two wide high-grade drill intersections discovered at the end of the 2007 drilling season.
One drill is currently set-up on the CMR07- 09 discovery site (79.5 feet [24.2 meters] core length assaying 6.46% zinc, 1.19% copper, 0.45% lead, 0.67 g/t gold and 49.8 g/t silver) and the second drill is being mobilized to the CMR07-07 discovery site (3.8% copper, 7.2% zinc, 0.37 g/t gold and 47 g/t silver over 46 feet [14 meters] core length) located 430 meters (1400 feet) away. Reported core lengths are interpreted to be 80-90% true thickness.
Garfield MacVeigh, President and CEO of Constantine Metals states: “This is the first opportunity to follow-up on two important drill discoveries made at the end of the 2007 drill season. The focus with the first few holes will be to establish the geometry of the high grade intersections from the discovery drill pads with step-out drill holes. The Company has two drills and experienced drill crews to carry out the 2008 program – it is an exciting year for Constantine and the Palmer project.”
