Butte Bonanza drilling intersects 9.0 g/t Au and 8.0 g/t Ag over 0.64 meters and 0.9 g/t Au and 14.1 g/t Ag over 3.44 meters
Black Warrior vein sets yield 1.0 g/t Au, 182.0 g/t Ag, 1.33% Zn over 1.0 meters and 0.1 g/t Au, 47.0 g/t Ag over 5.0 meters
Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. (Mineral Mountain or the Company) (TSXV: MMV)(OTCQX: MNRLF) is pleased to announce that final drilling results have been received from the Phase 1 drilling campaign on its Kootenay Arc Project located 45 kilometers southeast of Revelstoke B. C.
A total of 18 drill holes were drilled on the Kootenay Project totaling 2,940 meters. Two areas were the focus of the campaign -- Butte Bonanza (12 holes totaling 1,772 meters) and Black Warrior (6 holes totaling 1,168 meters). Plan maps illustrating the diamond drill hole locations can be found at http://www.mineralmtn.com/.
The Butte Bonanza area is characterized by a succession of vertically dipping phyllites and argillites crosscut by a narrow, shallowly dipping stacked faults which are host to gold-silver bearing quartz carbonate vein sets. Highlights from this first pass of exploratory drilling include drill hole BB11006 which intersected 9.0 g/t Au and 8.0 g/t Ag over 0.64 meters and BB11011 which intersected 0.9 g/t Au and 14.1 g/t Ag over 3.44 meters.
The Black Warrior area is a series of historical polymetallic Ag-Pb showings hosted proximal to the vertically dipping Black Warrior limestone. This exploratory drill program was successful in intersecting the Black Warrior carbonate vein sets with highlights comprising BW11001 (1.0 g/t Au, 182.0 g/t Ag, 1.33% Zn over 1.0 meters) and BW11004 (0.1 g/t Au, 47.0 g/t Ag over 5.0 meters). Length weighted averages for all drill holes are presented in Table 1.

The 2011 drilling campaign was a part of the larger exploration program performed by the Company this season. A property scale soils and rock sampling program has been underway since April 2011 with over 2500 samples having been collected. Assessment and interpretation of this data will continue over the winter months with emphasis on generating drill targets for the 2012 Phase 2 drilling program.
Nelson W. Baker, President and CEO of Mineral Mountain Resources comments This is the first time that these turn of the century showings have been drill tested in a systematic manner. The sheer number of showings distributed throughout the entire land package is testament to the widespread distribution of precious metals over the length of our 65 kilometer Kootenay Project and its potential to host a large polymetallic resource.
