Cadillac Commences Systematic Sampling for Gold on San Miguel Gossan, Esperanza Investigation Permit Area

 Toronto, May 12, 2010 - Cadillac Ventures Inc. (TSXV-CDC) ("Cadillac" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company is commencing a systematic grid sampling program on the San Miguel gossan located on the Esperanza investigation permit in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, Southern Spain.

San Miguel Gossan, P.I. Esperanza

On May 3rd 2010 the Company press released the assay results obtained to date from the surface sampling program in the area of the historical San Miguel Mine, which included a result of 6.87 gpt Au from a 1.09 kg. sample obtained from the exposed contact zone. While further results are pending from previous sampling the Company determined that a surface mapping program to determine the extent of the gossan on surface was warranted.

This surface gossan zone has been mapped over an area which is approximately 500m in an east-west direction by approximately 100m in a north-south direction, the mapping has identified 3 lithologies present in the gossan zone as illustrated in the image below, with the sampling grid overlain.

Surface mapping has resulted in the following;
  1. Gossan from disseminated sulphide - this has been mapped as an area of approximately 500m in an east/west direction and approximately 50m in a north/south direction
  2. Gossan from stockwork - this has been mapped as an area of approximately 411m e/w and approximately 83m n/s
  3. Gossan from massive sulphide - this has been mapped as an area of approximately 215m e/w and approximately 100m n/s.
  4. Two areas of dumps from historic operations, both of which have been sampled previously.
Gold bearing samples have been previously obtained and press released from the massive sulphide and the stockwork gossan zones; there has been no sampling by the Company as yet of the disseminated sulphides gossan zone. Samples will be taken as indicated by the grid illustrated above along n/s lines which are spaced 50m apart. Every 10m on the n-s lines a small pit will be dug to a depth of 20cm into the outcrop and a sample obtained. These samples will be sent for processing via ALS Chemex. It is anticipated that this program will result in 95 samples being sent for processing.

Mr. Brian H. Newton P.Geo, and a "qualified person" pursuant to NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release on behalf of the Company.
