Burnt Hill Project Update

 Toronto, Ontario - March 25th, 2008 - Cadillac Ventures Inc. (CDEX-CNQ) ("Cadillac") is pleased to announce the following results from the Burnt Hill Joint Venture with Noront Resources Ltd.

In the fall of 2007, Cadillac as operator managed an all encompassing program on the Burnt Hill Project, which expended $1,500,000 on a number of initiatives, under the onsite supervision of James G. Burns, P.Eng. Included in this expenditure was a detailed geological mapping program in the vicinity of the former Burnt Hill mine, which identified several previously unknown surface outcroppings of mineralization and structural trends on the property. A total of 139 rock samples were taken for analysis. Also undertaken in the fall of 2007 was a comprehensive compilation of data from all identified, accessible sources regarding the property, including government, assessment and private sources. The Burnt Hill Project was increased from 53 claims in 3 different blocks, to a total of 652 claims in one block. In addition to the staking of these claims, comprehensive linecutting was carried out on the historic Burnt Hill project area. The historic core stored in a government facility was re-examined, and portions of 5 holes drilled in 1979 were relogged, with 314 samples taken. The current drill program encompasses a total of 23 holes, of which 9 were completed in this program phase, in conjunction with the work detailed above. A total of 2837m were drilled, all of which were sampled, for a total of 2669 samples submitted to Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) in Fredericton, New Brunswick for multi-element analysis. This program was designed with two main targets;

  1. Confirm the known grade and extent of the mineralization identified in the 1979 drill campaign by select fill in holes.
  2. Define the extension of the mineralization along strike, across strike and down dip.
Logistical considerations affected the decisions as to which of the planned holes were drilled. Therefore holes 44, 59, 47 (which intersected underground workings) and 67 tested target #1, the remaining 5 holes tested target #2. In these holes, using a cut-off grade of 0.1% WO3 (tungsten) and 0.02% MoS2 (molybdenum), there were 186 significant intercepts over drill core lengths of 0.2 to 6.0 metres.

Details of the drill programs, and the results of the drill program, are discussed in the 43-101 report authored for Cadillac, which should be available and filed on SEDAR shortly.

In summary this drill program;
  • Shows that the tungsten-molybdenum mineralization is widespread
  • Confirmed the 1979 results
  • Shows that the mineralization continues along strike, across strike and down dip from the mineralization historically delineated
  • Indicates multiple zones of mineralization
  • Indicates that the molybdenite mineralization is more prevalent in the granite, or sediments close to the granite contact, whereas the tungsten mineralization is greatest further from the granite contact
  • Tin (Sn) mineralization may be associated with either the tungsten or molybdenite mineralization.
  • Tungsten mineralization occurs primarily in quartz/topaz veins, whereas the molybdenite mineralization is preferentially associated with griesen zones.
Management is encouraged by the results of this program. The widespread nature of the mineralization in multiple zones suggests that there is potential for an open pit operation. As well, previous work in 1980 demonstrated that the mineralization can be pre-concentrated prior to processing by photometric sorting.

Cadillac will be issuing to Noront Resources Inc. 1,875,000 shares of Cadillac in order to earn a 51% per cent interest in the Burnt Hill project, pursuant to the joint venture agreement as amended and previously announced. Cadillac has the option to earn a further 14% interest in Burnt Hill through the payment to Noront of $500,000 in either cash or common shares, as determined by Cadillac. The shares issued to Noront shall be subject to a 4 month hold.

It is the intention of management to further develop the Burnt Hill project by drilling the remaining planned holes in the summer 2008 exploration season. This program, once completed, will allow the Company to complete a Resource Estimate on Burnt Hill.

James G. Burns P.Eng, a consultant to Cadillac and a "qualified person" as such term is defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this press release and has approved the contents of this press release.
