Cadillac Obtains a 5.8% Copper and 24.8% Zinc Sample from Esperanza Project Dumps on the Esperanza P.I.

Toronto, May 17, 2010 - Cadillac Ventures Inc. (TSXV-CDC) ("Cadillac" or the "Company") is pleased to report the following additional assays from a regional orientation sampling program ongoing over the 12 license areas which form Cadillac's Joint Venture with MATSA in the Iberian Pyrite Belt of Southern Spain.

Esperanza Project, Esperanza P.I.

The Esperanza Project is located on the Esperanza investigation permit and encompasses a historic copper mine which was active from 1906-1931, operated by Esperanza Copper and Sulphur Ltd. The former Esperanza Mine was an underground operation that, in conjunction with the historic Angostura Mine located 3km to the west (and within the Esperanza P.I.), produced a total between the two deposits of 1.84 MT at 1.55% Cu between 1906 and 1931 as reported in Spanish language technical publications on the Pyrite Belt.
