Marifil Mines ( MFM.V ) hat die letzten Tage über ordentlich Gas gegeben. Klingt nach einer interessanten Story. Schaut mal nach:
www.marifilmines.com

Marifil Mines (MFM: TSX-V) is a Canadian resource exploration company with an aggressive strategy, focused on exploring for precious and base metals in Argentina, home of some of the world's most prolific recent discoveries. The Company has built an impressive portfolio of approximately 20 properties, including several showing bonanza grade gold and silver values. Other properties contain bulk tonnage precious and base metal targets.

Strategically, Marifil enhances its properties through focused exploration and drilling and then uses joint ventures with major mining companies to leverage value for its shareholders.

The company is lead by a highly skilled and experienced board and management team with significant success in discovery and in managing early stage mineral exploration companies.

Die Jungs haben mehr als 20 Grundstücke in Argentinien und wollen die besten möglichst schnell verhöckern und dabei noch ordentlich mitschneiden. Sie haben von Gold bis Silber,Kupfer,Moly usw. so ziemlich alles, was sie an den Mann bzw. andere große Firmen wollen.
Am Freitag haben sie in Kanada über 11 Prozent zugelegt. Könnte die neue Exeter werden. Super Management, alles alte Hasen ( oder Füchse ! )

Marifil Finds High Grade Indium in San Roque Gold Vein
Thursday February 15, 8:31 am ET


SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 15, 2007) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM - News; "Marifil" or "the Company") announces that it has found high grade indium mineralization in trench sampling in a gold-bearing brecciated silica vein system (see table) on the Company's wholly-owned, 12,705 hectare San Roque property in Rio Negro Province, Argentina (see Marifil news release of November 9, 2006 - Map of target locations: Http://www.marifilmines.com/s/SanRoque.asp).
Mineralization has been identified through trenching in a brecciated area at least 500 meters long and averaging 0.8 meters wide, and with a maximum width of 1.8 meters. One trench sample (#6489) found 14,883 grams per tonne (g/t) of indium ("In") with 2.64 g/t gold over 1.5 meters. The strongest gold ("Au") sample (6483) returned 12.37 g/t Au with 289 g/t In over 0.7 meters. As combined gold equivalent, these two samples returned 1,977.74 g/t and 83.97 g/t equivalent gold respectively. The samples all contain highly anomalous amounts of copper, lead, and zinc.

Indium is currently selling for $720 per kilo or $0.72 per gram, making indium worth 67% more than silver.

The Toyoho Mine in Japan is one of the leading indium producers in the world and has an average grade of 140 g/t Indium. Indium occurs with zinc and is recovered as a byproduct of zinc smelting.

Indium is a reasonably abundant but generally little known mineral used in the manufacture of semiconductors, high speed transistors, specialized solders and other specialized alloys. It is also used in the control rods for nuclear reactors. However, almost 50% of indium produced is used in the creation of thin-film coatings to make electronic devices such as thin-film solar panels and liquid crystal displays (LCDs), screens that transform electricity into light energy (i.e. television screens and computer monitors).

Noted writer Luke Burgess, "Finding indium in high concentration is extremely difficult. For mineral firms, that means having a property with a lot of indium can be jaw-droppingly profitable." (http://www.goldworld.com/articles/indium-argentex-production…

The San Roque property is located 56 kilometers east of San Antonio Oeste, a port on the Atlantic coast, in Rio Negro Province, Argentina. It lies on an extensive alluvial covered plain where some low-lying outcrops of silicified rhyolites protrude the cover. Geologic mapping requires extensive use of float tracking and trenching, an approach that has already identified several drill targets.

The samples were assayed by Alex Stewart (Assayers) Mendoza S.A. and the indium-rich samples were re-assayed by ICP-MA method with multiple assays of the higher values.

The Company is now planning a drill program to test both the indium-rich gold breccia/vein and some of the other higher grade gold veins.

Mehr braucht man wohl nicht zu sagen, der Indiumknaller der ganzen Galaxie und ich allein an Bord,

Kaum einer kennt ihre Namen, doch ohne sie würde kein Handy, kein Laptop, kein Flachbildschirm funktionieren: Seltene Elemente, deren Preise zum Teil rasant steigen.

Ein Ausschnitt aus dem Periodensystem der chemischen Elemente: Spezialmetalle sind heiß begehrt

Nur noch fünf Jahre, so meldete kürzlich das Wissenschaftsmagazin "New Scientist", reichen die weltweiten Vorräte des Metalls Indium, das 1863 erstmals in Zinkerz nachgewiesen wurde. Die Uno-Initiative Step (Solving the E-Waste Problem) rief aufgrund der Verknappung zu verstärktem Recycling von Elektronikschrott auf. Das weiche, silbrig glänzende Metall steckt in jedem Flachbildschirm: in Form von Elektroden. Das Material zeichnet sich durch Transparenz und elektrische Leitfähigkeit aus - eine einzigartige Kombination. Auch für Organische Leuchtdioden, Touchscreens und Dünnschicht-Solarzellen wird Indium gebraucht.

Einen eigenständigen Indium-Bergbau gibt es nicht, das Metall wird bei der Verhüttung von Zink gewonnen, wozu nur wenige Produzenten weltweit in der Lage sind.

Die bekannten Indium-Vorräte reichen noch höchstens zwölf Jahre - doch diese Prognose dient Bergwerksgesellschaften lediglich zur Orientierung, wann sie sich auf die Suche nach neuen Lagerstätten begeben müssen. Zudem wird nach Angaben des Geologischen Dienstes der USA (USGS) derzeit etwa die Hälfte des Bedarfs durch Recycling gedeckt. Indium ist also in ausreichender Menge vorhanden, die Nachfrage hat allerdings den Preis in die Höhe schnellen lassen. Außerdem hängt die Produktion vom Zink-Bergbau ab. 2002 erreichte der Preis einen Tiefstand von 100 $ pro Kilogramm, im Februar 2006 war er auf knapp 1000 $ geklettert. Inzwischen liegt der Kurs bei etwa 700 $, der USGS rechnet aber mit steigender Nachfrage.


Recht stabil bei etwa 70 $ liegt dagegen der Preis von Tantal. Das dunkelgraue Übergangsmetall ist aus einem anderen Grund ins Gerede gekommen: Es ist in Coltan enthalten, einem Erz, mit dessen Verkauf das Militär der Demokratischen Republik Kongo während des Bürgerkriegs Waffen finanzierte. Tantal steckt vor allem in Kondensatoren mit hoher Kapazität. In einem Kamerahandy können mehr als 20 davon enthalten sein. Sie dienen unter anderem zur Signalverarbeitung. Ihr Vorteil: Sie arbeiten bei niedriger Spannung, sind zuverlässig, robust und funktionieren bei Temperaturen von minus 55 bis plus 125 Grad Celsius.

Die Herkunft von Tantal ist besser als ihr Ruf. Insgesamt stammen weniger als zehn Prozent der Weltproduktion aus dem Kongo. Mehr als die Hälfte kommt aus zwei Minen in Australien. Weitere Lagerstätten liegen in Brasilien, Kanada, China und Afrika, 20 bis 25 Prozent des Bedarfs werden durch Recycling gedeckt. Da derzeit weitere Vorkommen erkundet werden, ist keine Verknappung zu erwarten.


Gleichmäßige Verteilung

Uneinheitlich ist die Lage bei den seltenen Erden - ein irreführender Begriff, denn selbst die seltensten unter diesem Begriff zusammengefassten Metalle kommen noch viel häufiger vor als Gold oder Platin. Sie verteilen sich relativ gleichmäßig in der Erdkruste. Weltweit werden pro Jahr etwa 100.000 Tonnen seltene Erden in der Form von Oxiden gefördert, die zwischen 10 und 15 $ pro Kilogramm kosten. 90 Prozent der weltweiten Produktion stammen von zwei chinesischen Anbietern, die einstmals führenden USA verkaufen nur noch Altbestände. Neue Minen werden in Australien erschlossen, allerdings kommen die Metalle dort im Mineral Monazit vor, das radioaktives Thorium und dessen stark strahlende Zerfallsprodukte enthält. Prognosen zufolge soll der Verbrauch jährlich um zehn Prozent steigen.

Die Trennung der seltenen Erden gehört zu den schwierigsten Aufgaben der anorganischen Chemie, da sich die 16 Elemente sehr ähnlich verhalten. Entsprechend hoch liegen die Preise für reine Oxide oder Metalle, die für verschiedene Bauteile benötigt werden: Ein Kilogramm Europium wird für etwa 6000 $ gehandelt. Die teuerste seltene Erde steckt im roten Farbstoff von Flachbildschirmen und Bildröhren, ein gleichwertiger Ersatz ist nicht bekannt.

Nur 100 $ kostet dagegen Yttrium, ebenfalls ein Bestandteil des roten Bildschirmfarbstoffs sowie weißer Leuchtdioden. Vergleichsweise günstig sind auch die seltenen Erden Neodym und Lanthan. Ohne Neodym wäre die Miniaturisierung vieler elektronischer Komponenten nicht denkbar. Es steckt in neuartigen, kleinen, leichten und extrem starken Magneten, die den Bau tragbarer Festplatten mit hoher Kapazität ermöglichen und in Lautsprechern, Mikrofonen und Kopfhörern zum Einsatz kommen.

Lanthan-Nickel-Hydrid-Akkus sind als Ersatz für Bleibatterien in Autos auf dem Vormarsch, insbesondere bei Modellen mit Hybridmotor. Sie sind zwar teurer, haben aber eine höhere Energiedichte und bessere Ladeeigenschaften. Zudem bereitet ihre Entsorgung weniger Probleme, da Lanthan im Gegensatz zu Blei und Cadmium nur schwach toxisch ist. Lanthan kommt außerdem in keramischen Vielschichtkondensatoren vor, die in Handys, Computern und Kameras unverzichtbar sind.

Marifil Intercepts More Indium, Gold & Zinc in Latest San Roque Results
6/12/2007

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, Jun 12, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --
MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE: MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") announces it has received assay results from the balance of its recently completed 28-hole diamond drill program at the Company's(i) San Roque project in Rio Negro Province, Argentina. (See Marifil News Release of May 22, 2007.). The 2,104-metre drill program targeted five structures in this large, multi-phased sulphide system. One phase is enriched in base metals with indium and gold; another phase is enriched in gold and silver. DDH-1 through -9, plus DDH-26 through -28 tested for gold, zinc and indium on the Del Indio target; DDH-10 through -23 tested epithermal gold silver targets in the area; while DDH 24-25 tested for gold, zinc and indium on Target 5. (See San Roque map on the Company's website at http://www.marifilmines.com/i/maps/SanRoque_Del-Indio-Target.gif)." target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.marifilmines.com/i/maps/SanRoque_Del-Indio-Target.gif).

((i)Under the terms of Marifil's Purchase Option Agreement with M.I.M. Argentina Explorationes S.A. (MIM), the Company has already spent the required US$200,000 on the property and may acquire 100% ownership of San Roque by paying MIM US$400,000 before June 4, 2010.)

"We are very excited about this project, not only because of the high Indium values and the extensive Zinc mineralization, but also because we see it as a multi-phased, hydrothermal, alteration system involving at least 36-square kilometres," said Dick Walters, Marifil's Executive Vice-President. "As an exploration geologist I have been involved in a number of discoveries over the years and I'm confident we have a significant find here."

Although most of the detailed drill results have been received (pending assays are those with greater than either 1% lead or 1% zinc), the Company is conducting a detailed review over the coming weeks to:

- Determine the association between the high-grade indium and other elements, particularly zinc and bismuth, as well as the association between the gold and silver (which appears to have occurred largely in a later phase);

- Submit for assaying several drill samples that had not previously been tested for indium, particularly in areas where high levels of zinc had been found; and,

- Select targets for the next round of drilling, planned for the end of the Argentine winter in about three months.

San Roque is a 12,700-hectare property with zinc and high grade indium along with epithermal gold and silver. Mineralization is found in broad structural corridors containing silicified breccias, quartz veins, disseminated sulphides, and extensive associated stockwork fracturing. The mineralized system is largely hidden by thin alluvial cover and is hosted in Jurassic acidic volcanics and Paleozoic basement rocks of schist. Importantly, this is a strong sulphide system that penetrates all rock types and has the potential for significant size and porphyry-scale, bulk mining. The Company would like to emphasize the mineralization does extend into the underlying basement rocks thus increasing the potential size and importance of the ore targets.

Latest Results:

As noted above, DDH-25 was drilled to test for gold and silver on Target 5, located approximately 1,100 meters southwest of the Del Indio structure. However, in addition to the high values of silver with some gold intercepted, it also cut significant amounts of zinc, indium and bismuth in basement rocks. The area between Target 5 and Del Indio is covered with alluvium and is also the site of a large Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly carried out by MIM. This anomalous zone may conceal an important zinc-indium target.

John Hite, Marifil's CEO added, "As we continue to find more indium and zinc in some of our drilling, along with more gold and silver in other areas, San Roque is becoming increasingly interesting, both for our investors and geologically. For example, indium is selling for $850 per kilo, making this metal three times more valuable than uranium and twice as valuable as silver. Zinc and bismuth markets are also very strong. It is difficult to imagine a better time for this find."

Castillian Approves $3.4 Million Exploration Budget for Marifil`s San Luis Project

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, Jun 26, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE: MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") reports that the Board of Directors of Castillian Resources Corporation (Castillian) (TSX VENTURE: CT) has approved an exploration budget that includes C$3.4 million earmarked "to aggressively explore" Marifil's Las Aguilas target on the San Luis belt project located in the San Luis province of Argentina. (See Marifil Release of May 22, 2007.)

According to Castillian`s press release: "A program of delineation drilling on the Las Aguilas Deposit will commence in July (see (Castillian) Press releases dated March 6 and May 17, 2007 for further details). Approximately 6,000 meters of drilling will be completed to expand the Las Aguilas Deposit and redrill certain sections in order to evaluate the platinum group element (PGE) potential. Recent sampling has demonstrated significant platinum values associated with the deposit and PGEs were not assayed during previous drill campaigns. VTEM airborne surveying totaling approximately 3,200 line kilometers will be completed, over key parts of the extensive land package and follow up will commence as soon as data is processed. Castillian may earn up to a 65% interest in the projects from Marifil Mines Limited."

The San Luis property is a 54,573-hectare nickel-copper-PGM ("platinum group metals") property located along a prospective belt of differentiated ultramafic rocks and believed to be highly prospective for PGM's, particularly platinum. The property is wholly-owned by Marifil, except for an underlying royalty held by BHPBilliton on a small portion of the property, which Marifil had purchased from that company.

This press release has been reviewed and approved by John Hite, President of Marifil Mines Ltd., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Marifil Finds 5.4 M @ 309 G/T Indium From Previous Toruel Drilling
43-101 Resource Study Underway
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") announces further assaying of previous drill samples from its wholly-owned Toruel property in Rio Negro Province, Argentina has resulted in substantial added value with the discovery of indium associated with the silver-rich polymetallic base metal mineralization (see Marifil news release dated June 1, 2006). Thirteen drill hole intercepts between 20 and 25 meters deep show a weighted average grade of 83.07 grams indium per tonne ("g/t In") over an average true width of 2.4 m, with the best intercept being 5.40 m @ 308.94 g/t In.

The 1.5-kilometer-long Toruel structure is a silicified fault breccia impregnated by strong epithermal sulphide mineralization containing silver, gold, copper, zinc and lead. The Company drilled 46 holes along this structure during 2005 and 2006, and recently undertook additional assaying of 881 drill sample pulps for suspected indium. The indium search was filtered by analyzing only samples containing greater than 0.3% zinc, with which the indium is believed to be complexed. The new assay results are summarized in Table 1 below. Some additional indium assays are pending. The exercise was eminently successful in identifying indium as being a valuable credit of the precious metal and polymetallic mineralization, adding an equivalent in value of 140 g/t silver to its average grade.




Table 1--------DDH 1 2.40 m @ 37.50 g/t In-DDH 2B 2.40 m @ 11.91 g/t In-DDH 8 1.40 m @ 54.00 g/t In-DDH 13 1.80 m @ 99.23 g/t In-DDH 21 2.50 m @ 15.04 g/t In-DDH 24 5.00 m @ 40.08 g/t In-DDH 31 3.40 m @ 28.69 g/t In-DDH 32 5.40 m @ 308.94 g/t In-DDH 33 1.90 m @ 36.63 g/t In-DDH 34 1.80 m @ 37.83 g/t In-DDH 35 0.60 m @ 59.00 g/t In-DDH 41 0.70 m @ 45.00 g/t In-DDH 57 2.00 m @ 9.50 g/t In



These latest results will be incorporated into a National Instrument 43-101 resource calculation on Toruel, which is under preparation.

John Hite, Marifil's President and CEO said, "This is extremely exciting news for our shareholders as it shows we now have significant indium in drill intercepts on at least two of our wholly-owned(i) properties - Toruel and San Roque - and, with the work we have planned for the new exploration season, we look forward to seeing them both proven as important new discoveries. The indium contents we are seeing will form an important byproduct adding significant value to both projects. Additionally, the indium credits may effectively increase the resource size considerably, particularly at the east end of the Toruel structure where silver values are lower."

((i)Marifil, which acquired the rights to San Roque from MIM Exploraciones S.A. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of mining giant XSTRATA), has the right to purchase 100% of the property at any time by making a cash payment of $400,000.)

Background

Assay results from diamond core drilling at the Company's San Roque project - a drill program that was conducted after the Toruel drilling had been completed - revealed strong geologic associations between zinc and indium mineralization. As a result, Marifil's management decided to determine whether there might be a similar zinc-indium association at Toruel where no assays had been made for indium. The Company's technical team, headed by Senior Geologist, Pedro Vera, reviewed the extensive sampling database results from the Company's three-phased, 63 hole drill program conducted during 2005 and 2006, which had tested several different structures across this 43,621 hectare property.

Indium

Indium is a reasonably abundant but generally little known mineral used in the manufacture of semiconductors, high speed transistors, specialized solders and other specialized alloys. It is also used in the control rods for nuclear reactors. However, almost 50% of indium produced is used in the creation of thin-film coatings to make electronic devices such as thin-film solar panels and liquid crystal displays (LCDs), screens that transform electricity into light energy (i.e. television screens and computer monitors). Indium is currently selling for approximately three times the price of uranium (U3O8) or about 70% more than the price of silver.

This press release has been reviewed and approved by John Hite, President of Marifil Mines Ltd. under whose direction the exploration program is being carried out. Mr. Hite is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Marifil Prepares Phase 2 Drill Program at San Roque
Following Up on Strong Indium, Zinc and Gold Intercepts

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2007) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") announces a minimum 2,500 metre (m) diamond drill program is scheduled to begin in less than two weeks on the Company's wholly-owned(i) San Roque project, Rio Negro Province, Argentina (see Marifil News Release dated August 7, 2007.) With the end of the Argentine winter, this next phase of DDH exploration work will have two primary objectives:

1. To expand the extensive and open-ended zones of high-grade indium (In), gold (Au) and/or base metals, particularly zinc (Zn) and lead (Pb) previously identified by drilling.

2. To complete initial drilling on a number of newly identified areas that surface geochemical sampling, geophysics and geological mapping show to be prospective for similar base metal/indium mineralization. Of particular interest is an Induced Polarization (I.P.) anomaly measuring 3 km in diameter, containing a number of large, linear, magnetic anomalies associated with structural zones, several of which have not yet been drill tested. Three previous drill holes, MIM DDH 8 and MIM RC 7 & 10, the latter two being located nearly one km further north, all tested only the east edge of the geophysical anomalies.

"During our Phase 1 drilling program, we intercepted some very rich indium and zinc mineralization as well as good gold values and we are anxious to discover the true extent of what we have found," said Marifil President and CEO, John Hite. "We believe that San Roque has the potential for bulk tonnage base metal production and this next round of drilling will give us more of the data and certainty we need."

About San Roque(i): The Company has the right to earn a 100% interest (see Marifil news release dated June 18, 2007) in the 12,700 hectare San Roque project, where strong mineralization has been found within a structural corridor at least 10 kms wide and 20 kms long. Marifil's exploration work includes a Phase-1, 28-diamond drill hole (DDH) program that intercepted high-grade Indium (In), Zinc (Zn), Silver (Ag) and Gold (Au), along with other base metals, particularly Lead (Pb). These intercepts include 5.1 meters of 2.61 g/t Au; 24 g/t Ag; and, 30.4 g/t In in DDH 11 and 0.75 meters of 2.05 g/t Au; 0.22 % Pb; 0.32% Zn; and, 448 g/t In in DDH 7, and 117 m of 0.95% Zn in DDH 4 including 4.5 meters of 0.37 g/t Au; 499 g/t In and 6.64% Zn.

This press release has been reviewed and approved by John Hite, President of Marifil Mines Ltd. under whose direction the exploration program is being carried out. Mr. Hite is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The statements made in this press release may contain forward-looking statements that may involve a number of risks and uncertainties.

Castillian Intersects 60.87 Meters Grading 0.78% Nickel, 0.50% Copper Including 12.6 Meters Grading 1.19% Nickel, 0.75% Copper and Significant PGM Near Surface at Las Aguilas, Argentina
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) - Castillian Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CT) announces additional assay results from drilling at the Las Aguilas Nickel-Copper-PGE deposit (see release dated September 17 for previously released drill results).

Assays for five holes are listed in Table 1 below, including hole LA07-004 which intersected 60.8 meters grading 0.78% Ni, 0.50% copper, 0.05% cobalt including 12.6 meters grading 1.19% Nickel, 0.75% Copper and 0.07% Cobalt (see Table 1 below).

In addition, very interesting results are noted in drill hole LA07-014, which intersected 10.2 meters grading 0.58% nickel, 0.38% copper, 0.03% cobalt and high precious metal values of 0.56 g/t Platinum, 0.54 g/t palladium, and 0.27 g/t gold (1.37 g/t Pt+Pd+Au), which suggests potential for an excellent precious metal by-product credit. Drill hole LA07-013 also intersected two significant intervals with greater than 1.0 g/t Pt+Pd+Au (Table 1).

The ongoing drill program is designed to confirm and expand the Las Aguilas Ni-Cu deposit and provide data required to complete a NI-43-101 compliant resource estimate that includes assays for platinum group elements (PGE) which were not systematically analysed by previous explorers. The occurrence of significant platinum, palladium and gold values in holes LA07-13 and 14 provides evidence that precious metals could provide a significant contribution to the value of the deposit. All mineralized intercepts reported to date occur at depths shallower than 100 meters. Both the Las Aguilas East Deposit and West deposit remain open at depth at this time.

Since early July a total of 38 drill holes totalling 5,990 meters of drilling have been completed, of which assay results have only been received for 14 drill holes. Twenty-four (24) drill holes have assays pending and these will be reported on a continual basis as the data is received. The project is on track and it is expected that a revised, independent, NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate will be completed by year-end.

The Las Aguilas Deposit contains a historical resource of 2.2 million tonnes grading 0.52 % Ni, 0.51 % Cu and 0.04 % Co at a 0.3% Ni cut-off grade. The resource occurs in two sulfide deposits (Las Aguilas East and West Deposits), as defined by Fabricaciones Militares in 1986, which intermittently carried out various geological, geophysical and surface drilling exploration campaigns from 1972 until 1986. This resource estimate has not been confirmed by Castillian and predates the establishment of NI 43-101 standards and is provided for information only. This estimate should not be relied upon.

Quality Control

The company employs a diligent QA/QC protocol on all aspects of the analytical procedures. Core samples are sawn and one half of the NQ core is restored to the core box for future reference and one half of the core is sent for analysis. Samples are taken in approx. 1.0-metre intervals or less when in the mineralized zone, and at 1.5 metres or less when in disseminated sulphides (less than 2% sulphides). Sample preparation is completed at the ALS-Chemex preparation lab in Mendoza, Argentina and assayed at ALS-Chemex lab in Vancouver, Canada, using multi-acid digest/ ICP-AES for the base metals and A.A. when values exceed upper limits. Platinum, palladium and gold values are determined by 30 gram fire assay with ICP-AES finish. A blank sample is inserted every 40th sample and standard samples representing a range of grades are inserted at intervals of 1 in 20 to 30 samples.

The quality control and all aspects of the exploration program are supervised by Castillian exploration managers, Danielle Giovenazzo, Ph.D., PGeo, and Fernando Tallarico, Ph.D., PGeo, both of whom meet the criteria for a qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.

David Gower, PGeo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Castillian, who is a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, has reviewed this release.

Marifil Receives Independent Report on Its Mina El Carmen Hydrocarbon Property
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has received an independent report prepared by consulting petroleum geologist Carlos Reijenstein on the 20 square kilometer Mina El Carmen ("El Carmen") oil and gas property. The Company's wholly-owned property lies on the north flank of the Golfo San Jorge Basin and is about 30 kilometers north of the town of Comodoro Rivadavia, an important oil industry center in Chubut Province, Argentina. Marifil owns the hydrocarbon rights under its patented mining claims.

The Golfo San Jorge Basin encompasses parts of Chubut and Santa Cruz provinces and extends offshore onto Argentina's continental shelf. The basin has a total production in excess of 3 billion barrels of oil and produces about one-third of Argentina's annual output.

Twelve shallow wells were drilled on the property by private and government oil companies between 1928 and 1944, primarily to test a near-surface gas-bearing formation. Four of the wells have shut-in gas and two of the deeper wells reported oil and gas shows from deeper reservoirs. Several factors sharply limited the value of this early testing, including lack of technical ability, lack of seismic coverage, the use of now obsolete technology and placing wells where access was convenient rather than based on geology.

During 2004/2005, on the adjacent Restinga Ali block (not owned by Marifil) new 3-D seismic programs as well as new geologic models led to several new oil discoveries by other companies. Oil and gas properties immediately to the west and southwest of El Carmen are currently producing 950 and 15,000 barrels of oil per day, respectively.

Marifil engaged Mr. Reijenstein to evaluate the Mina El Carmen property. This work included a review of nearby seismic lines, well logs, as well as preparation of structural/stratigraphic maps and cross sections to show the regional integration of the block with the main tectonic and stratigraphic features of this part of the basin. The results of his comprehensive study show that estimated potential resources associated with two prospective targets are on the order of 8.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas and 6.4 million barrels of oil.

These exploration targets, as initially defined, are five kilometer long structural traps aligned along and against a northwest-striking fault. None of the 12 historic wells properly drilled tested these traps.

The Company discounts the value of the potential natural gas resource because natural gas is highly regulated in Argentina and sells for a significant discount to world prices. At current prices, the natural gas may not constitute an economic target. However, the potential oil resource does constitute an economic target.

Drilling to test the main oil exploration targets will require holes of about 800 m depth at an estimated cost of about us$400,000 per well.

Marifil purchased the El Carmen property several years ago, but continues its primary focus on precious and base metals projects. In keeping with Marifil's corporate business strategy, the Company intends to either sell the property or find an experienced oil and gas company as a joint-venture partner to develop this hydrocarbon property.

Carlos Reijenstein is a petroleum geologist/geophysicist with over 35 years of experience. He is a member of the Asociacion Argentina De Geologos Y Geofisicos Petroleros, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and is very knowledgeable and experienced in the geology of the Golfo San Jorge Basin.

The statements made in this press release may contain forward-looking statements that may involve a number of risks and uncertainties. The Company specifically cautions that the oil and gas amounts discussed above are only potential targets not resources. Actual events or results could differ materially from the Company's expectations and projections.

Castillian Intersects 27.20 Meters Grading 0.66% Nickel, 0.39% Copper Including 8.94 Meters Grading 0.92% Nickel, 0.53% Copper and Significant PGM at Marifil's Las Aguilas Project in Argentina
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2007) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") announces that its partner, Castillian Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CT) has reported a third round of assay results from its ongoing drill campaign at Marifil's Las Aguilas Ni-Cu-PGE deposit, San Luis Province, central Argentina. Las Aguilas is located 40 km NE of the city of San Luis and about 200 km east of City of Mendoza (see Figure 1) and is an option - joint venture with (Marifil.)" (See Marifil press releases dated May 17 and June 6, 2007).

According to Castillian: "Assays for eight holes are listed in Table 1 below, including hole LA07-021 which intersected 27.2 meters grading 0.66% Ni, 0.39% copper, 0.03% cobalt including 8.94 meters grading 0.92% Nickel, 0.53% Copper and 0.04% Cobalt.

Notes Castillian: The ongoing drill program is designed to confirm and expand the Las Aguilas Ni-Cu deposit and provide data required to complete a NI-43-101 compliant resource estimate that includes assays for platinum group elements (PGE) which were not systematically analysed by previous explorers. The occurrence of significant platinum, palladium and gold values in holes LA07-21, 19 and 24 provides evidence that precious metals could provide a significant contribution to the value of the deposit. Hole LA07-021 extends the deposit to the south and at depth and it remains open in those directions. Both the Las Aguilas East Deposit and West deposit remain open at depth at this time.

John Hite notes that, "this news release continues to confirm the validity of our joint venture model. Marifil retains a 40% interest in this project, and, at Marifil's option, we can be fully carried through to production and still retain a 35% interest without further dilution to our shareholders. We are highly encouraged that there is a good possibility Castillian will be able to increase the size of this deposit. The Company is very pleased by the high quality and professionalism displayed by Castillian and its staff in carrying out this project. We certainly chose the right partner."

The Las Aguilas Deposit contains a historical resource of 2.2 million tonnes grading 0.52 % Ni, 0.51 % Cu and 0.04 % Co at a 0.3% Ni cut-off grade. The resource occurs in two sulfide deposits (Las Aguilas East and West Deposits), as defined by Fabricaciones Militares in 1986, which intermittently carried out various geological, geophysical and surface drilling exploration campaigns from 1972 until 1986. This resource estimate has not been confirmed by Castillian and predates the establishment of NI 43-101 standards and is provided for information only.

Project Status:

Since the program started in early July a total of 56 drill holes totalling 8,755 meters of drilling have been completed, of which assay results have only been received for 24 drill holes. Thirty two (32) drill holes have assays pending and these will be reported on a continual basis as the data is received. The project is on track and it is expected that an initial, independent, NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate will be completed by year-end. Turn around time for assay results has been much longer than expected due to high volumes at the laboratories, so it is possible completion of the resource estimate could be delayed for several weeks due to pending assay results. It is possible that the deposit will not be closed off at the end of this drill campaign.

Marifil Mines drills 11.7 m of 17.4 g/t In at San Roque


2007-12-04 10:10 ET - News Release

Mr. John Hite reports

MARIFIL MINES LTD.: SAN ROQUE DRILL INTERCEPTS 11.7 METERS (M) AT 174.4 GRAMS PER TON (G/T)INDIUM; 3.0 M AT 208 G/T INDIUM; AND 1.0 M AT GREATER THAN 1,500 G/T

Marifil Mines Ltd.'s first three drill holes in the second round of drilling (in progress) cut good values of indium (see "San Roque drill results" table) in a large, open-ended breccia zone around the Del Indio vein on the company's 100-per-cent-owned San Roque, Argentina, property. This breccia zone also contains significant amounts of zinc, lead, gold and silver. The impressive indium grades are attracting attention from several of the world's largest indium producers to visit the property. The company is entertaining proposals for a joint exploration and exploitation of its unusual find.

Richard Walters, Marifil's executive vice-president, remarks: "This is turning into a large and exciting metal deposit which is open to expansion through step-out drilling. I am particularly encouraged by the presence of such a large sulphide system that permeates the basement schist as well as the overlying volcanics. I strongly suspect there is a big underlying porphyry heat engine driving it."

The Del Indio vein (see news in Stockwatch on Nov. 9, 2006, and Feb. 15, 2007) has been renamed the Del Indio breccia because it is one of a number of subparallel indium-bearing structures within a breccia zone. Drill penetrations have now increased the size of this breccia to approximately 600 metres long by 300 metres wide. It is elongated northeast and open ended to the southwest, southeast, northeast and at depth. While higher indium values are associated with structural zones and gold-bearing quartz veins, all of the intervening rocks are mineralized with stockwork lead-zinc veins and veinlets as well as disseminated zinc. The gold-enriched Del Indio vein roughly marks the northwestern side of the deposit.

Marifil Mines plans to drill another 1,000 metres during the current campaign and then begin a larger more aggressive drill program during the first quarter of 2008. The company has completed a ground gravity survey to help determine if the base metal mineralization is part of an overlying or margin shell to a porphyry copper or porphyry molybdenum system. Analysis of this data is in progress.

Gold Discovery At San Roque


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DH-51 CUTS 126 METERS GRADING 0.74 GRAMS/TON GOLD

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON - JANUARY 8, 2008: MARIFIL MINES LTD. (MFM: TSX-V) ("Marifil" or "the Company") announces that drill holes 50 and 51 both cut thick gold intercepts in the Company's San Roque base metal project.

Hole 50 cut 122.6 metres (m) at 0.34 grams per ton (g/t) from 24.4 m to 147 m and Hole 51 cut 126 m of 0.74 g/t gold from 7.0 m to 133.0 m. Both holes also cut significant amounts of silver, indium, lead, and zinc but complete assays from these metals are still in progress.

Holes 50 and 51 were drilled to test a gold, silver, lead, and zinc target cut by MIM Drill Hole SRDD-8 (MIM is now a subsidiary of XSTRATA plc ) (see Marifil News Release dated June 18, 2007). Hole 50 is located 67 m northeast of SRDD-8 and Hole 51 is located 40 m southwest of SRDD-8. All three holes are drilled to the southwest and are sub-parallel.

These two drill holes are significant as they are located about 1,200 m southeast of the Del Indio breccia target and cut similar rocks. The significance is that the gap between is highly prospective; a theory bolstered by Induced Polarization evidence.

Mr. John Hite, President of Marifil says, "San Roque is starting to look like a huge discovery. We now believe that the ore target is more than 1,200 meters in diameter and is open-ended in every direction. We believe the deposit is hosted by a large diatreme or volcanic crater. "

Marifil has drilled 51 holes and all contain significant amounts of gold, silver, indium, lead, and zinc. Marifil's exploration model is similar to GOLDCORP INC.'s Penasquito deposit in Zacatecas State, Mexico.

Mr. John Hite of Marifil Mines reports

MARIFIL MINES LTD.: DRILL RESULTS SHOW IMPORTANT AMOUNTS OF PLATINUM AT MARIFIL'S LAS AGUILAS PROPERTY

Marifil Mines Ltd. has results provided by its joint venture partner, Castillian Resources Corp., from 35 drill holes from the Las Aguilas West deposit, located 40 kilometres north of San Luis, Argentina. Marifil holds a 35-per-cent interest in the project and is carried through to production.

Values of up to 5.66 grams per tonne platinum have been intersected, and values exceeding 0.5 g/t platinum and palladium were intersected over significant widths in almost every drill hole. Fifteen holes from the West deposit contain samples that exceed one g/t platinum.

John Hite, president of Marifil, states: "We are very pleased with the way this project is rapidly growing. Drilling has defined the West deposit over a strike length of 375 metres and prospecting suggests this could be expanded to a total length of 825 m. Both the Las Aguilas West and East deposits remain open for further expansion."

Selected highlights from the drill campaign are listed in the attached table, and a complete list of results and estimated true widths for intersections from the Las Aguilas West deposit will be shown on the company's website.

The drill holes reported in this press release represent all of the drill holes completed prior to the year-end break on the Las Aguilas West deposit and will comprise the basis for completing an initial resource calculation. Drill hole intercepts are spaced approximately 25 metres apart, except at the southern end of the deposit where step-outs were extended to approximately 50 metres on the two southernmost sections.

The mineralization in the Las Aguilas West deposit is hosted by a mafic to ultramafic dike, which strikes north-northeast. The mineralized zone is a tabular body hosted within the dike. The mineralization is not closed off to the north or the south and also remains open at depth in the northern half of the deposit. The nickel and copper mineralization is associated with magmatic sulphides, primarily pyrhotite, pentlandite and chalcopyrite. These sulphides contain significant amounts of cobalt, platinum, palladium and minor gold. Geophysical evidence suggests the mineralization associated with the Las Aguilas West deposit could extend a further 300 metres to the south and 150 metres to the north; further drilling will be required to verify this. The mineralized zone ranges from approximately two metres to 21.5 metres in true thickness and averages approximately 10 m to 12 m in true thickness.

Drilling will resume testing the extensions of the West and East deposits, as well as a number of regional targets in early March, 2008. Previously released drill intercepts from the project were taken from the Las Aguilas East deposit, occurring 400 metres to the east. A total of 67 holes were completed on the two deposits in 2007, totalling 11,028 metres. Assays are pending for several remaining holes from the East deposit. Work to complete a preliminary resource estimate for the drilling to date has commenced, however, a complete resource estimate will not be done until after the resource delineation is completed and the limits of the deposits have been established.

The quality control and all aspects of the exploration program are supervised by Castillian exploration manager, Danielle Giovenazzo, PhD, PGeo, who meets the criteria for a qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.

Ich glaube der SCI war auch(auf eine spekulative,
"Frühphasenstadium" Art) ziemlich begeistert von Marifil.

Ich gucke mir grad nochmal so ziemlich alles dazu durch
-und finde es wirklich arg interessant.

einziger Kritikpunkt meinerseits derzeit:

Mir wäre es etwas lieber, wenn sie vielleicht nur die Hälfte
Projekte hätten, dafür aber 2, 3 -richtige- "Companymaker".

Ein bisschen schwer in dem wilden Mix durchzusehen
und man wird ne ganze Weile Zeit mitbringen müssen,
um zu sehen, was nachher wirklich dabei rauskommt.

Ich für meinen Teil würde es derzeit als
"long term strong speculative Buy" sehen,
was keine Kauf/Verkaufsempfehlung ist,
aber wenn einem das gefällt/man aufgrund der verfügbaren Infos
dran glaubt, dann gibt es langfristig glaube ich
keinen viel besseren Einstiegszeitpunkt als jetzt.


alles meine Ansicht, Popeye :)

Marifil's Las Aguilas East Nickel-Copper-Platinum-Palladium Deposit Continues to Expand
Values of Greater than 1 g/t Platinum in Five of Seven Holes Reported

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) is pleased to announce assay results provided by its JV partner Castillian Resources from the final seven diamond drill holes completed in 2007 at the Las Aguilas East nickel-copper-platinum-palladium deposit, San Luis Province, Argentina (Figure 1). Five of these holes reported sample values exceeding 1.0 g/t platinum.

Drill hole LA07-063 intersected 7.00 metres grading 1.11% nickel, 0.45% copper, 0.04% cobalt, 0.50 g/t platinum and 0.68 g/t palladium and includes a 1 metre interval grading 2.01 g/t platinum and 0.27 g/t palladium. The deposit remains open for further expansion at this time (see Figures 2 and 3 - plan map and longitudinal section for locations). Results from the seven drill holes are summarized in Table 1 below.

The Las Aguilas East deposit has now been outlined for more than 200 metres along strike and to a 225 metre vertical depth. The mineralized zone shows a steep plunge to the south and remains open to the south and at depth (see Figure 3). Drill hole intercepts are spaced approximately 25 metres apart (Figure 2 - plan and Figure 3 - long section). A total of 67 holes were completed on the Las Aguilas East and West deposits in 2007 totalling 11,028 metres. Of these, 31 holes were drilled at the Las Aguilas East deposit totalling 5,817 metres.

A preliminary resource estimate is in progress; however, because the deposits remain open a complete resource estimate can not be completed until after the resource delineation is completed and the limits of the deposits have been established. Drilling will resume on the extensions of the West and East deposits as well as a number of regional targets in mid March.

The project is an option joint venture whereby Castillian may earn up to a 65 percent interest in the property from Marifil (see press release dated March 5, 2007).

Quality Control

The company employs a diligent QA/QC protocol on all aspects of the analytical procedures. Core samples are sawn and then one half of the NQ core is restored to the core box for future reference and one half of the core is sent for analysis. Samples are taken in approx. 1.0-metre intervals or less when in the mineralized zone, and at 1.5 metres or less when in disseminated sulphides (less than 2 percent sulphides). Sample preparation is completed at the ALS-Chemex lab preparation lab in Mendoza, Argentina and assayed at ALS-Chemex lab in Vancouver, Canada, using multi-acid digest/ICP-AES for the base metals and A.A. when nickel and copper are over the detection limits. Platinum, palladium and gold values are determined by 30 gram fire assay with ICP-AES finish. A blank sample is inserted every 40th sample and standard samples representing a range of grades are inserted at intervals of 1 in 20 to 30 samples.

The quality control and all aspects of the exploration program are supervised by Castillian exploration manager, Danielle Giovenazzo, Ph.D., PGeo, who meets the criteria for a qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.

Marifil Announces a 3,250 Line Kilometre Airborne VTEM Electromagnetic (TDEM) and Magnetic Survey Over the San Luis Nickel-Copper-PGE Project, Argentina
Drilling to resume on Las Aguilas Platinum-Nickel-Copper Deposit
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - April 1, 2008) - Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) announces that its partner, Castillian Resources Corp., has initiated a 3,250 line kilometre airborne VTEM (Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic) survey, including a B-field sensor and magnetic survey. The survey will cover part of Marifil's mafic ultramafic belt which is highly prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum. This belt is covered by a second joint venture agreement with Castillian (see News Release dated May 17, 2007).

The survey, which commenced on March 23, 2008, is being conducted over the contiguous San Luis and Las Aguilas nickel, copper, PGE (Platinum Group Elements) project areas in San Luis Province, Argentina (Figure 1). The survey will cover approximately 390 square kilometres of 50 to 200 metres spaced lines with detailed coverage focused on areas with known mineralization. The survey is expected to be completed, including initial interpretations, by late April 2008.

According to Danielle Giovenazzo PhD, P.Geo., Exploration Manager for Castillian, "This VTEM survey is a very important phase in the exploration of the San Luis property. This data will quickly focus the exploration efforts and will be followed by ground verification of the anomalies and drilling in 2008."

The survey area covers the San Luis trend of mafic and ultramafic intrusions that host the Las Aguilas East and West Ni-Cu-PGE deposits and several other Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide occurrences and gossans including Virorco, Las Higueras and El Fierro (Figure 2). These targets are priorities for follow-up ground surveys and diamond drilling as part of the 2008 exploration program. Regional geochemical sampling of stream sediments have highlighted numerous pronounced nickel-copper anomalies associated with the ultramafic rocks in the northern part of the belt (Figure 3 - Geochemistry map). This area will also be covered by the VTEM survey. The projects are an option joint venture between Castillian and Marifil.

Priority areas that have already been identified within the survey area include the following:

Las Aguilas: Detailed surveying will be completed in the area of the Las Aguilas deposits to help outline the potential extensions of the deposits, both of which remain open. The Las Aguilas West deposit has Ni-Cu-PGE sulphides associated with a pyroxenite dyke, and the Las Aguilas East deposit is associated with a 100 metre wide mafic and ultramafic intrusion. Drilling is scheduled to resume on March 31, 2008.

Virorco: The Virorco target is located four kilometres north-northeast of the Las Aguilas deposits, and contains several gossans with anomalous nickel, copper and PGE over sulphide occurrences. The main Virorco nickel-copper-PGE occurrence is located on a prominent hill and is associated with pyroxenite and gabbro. The Direccion General Fabrications Militares (DGFM) (Argentina State Company) explored this occurrence in the 1970s. The program included two holes drilled under the gossan, one of which intersected four metres grading 0.41% Ni and 0.19% Cu in a norite. Surface sampling of the main gossan in 2007 returned the following best value for a grab: 0.55% Cu, 0.05% Ni, 0.20 g/t Pt and 0.1 g/t Pd, all of which are highly anomalous values for gossan samples. This data provide strong evidence of a mineralized intrusion at Virorco. Within 500 metres of the Virorco gossan, several sulphide occurrences and small gossans were sampled by Castillian in 2007, in which best analytical results from a grab sample were 1.12% Cu, 0.115 g/t Pd and 0.119 g/t Au.

El Fierro: This occurrence is located 2.3 kilometres north-northeast of Virorco and outcrops as a 70 metre long gossan in pyroxenite and gabbro. Analytical results from grab samples have anomalous Cu, Ni and PGM values including one sample with 0.50% Ni and 0.22% Cu.

Las Higueras: This gossan is located 2 kilometres north of the Las Aguilas deposit and is associated with thin, coarse grained pyroxenitic to melanogabbro norite intrusion into paragneisses. Several grab samples were taken in 2007 with best result of 0.42% Ni, 1.59% Cu, 0.16ppm Au, and 0.19 ppm Pd.

The San Luis project covers two linear belts containing a series of Ordovician aged (480 Ma) mafic and ultramafic intrusions located along the margin of the Sierras Pampeanas de San Luis, in San Luis Province of central Argentina.

The San Luis Belt, located in the central portion of the property, contains mafic and ultramafic intrusions identified along 65 kilometres. These rocks intrude into the Pringles metamorphic complex consisting mostly of paragneisses.

The San Francisco belt is located in the western part of the property and trends sub-parallel to the San Luis belt. This belt contains numerous previously mapped ultramafic to mafic intrusions. This area will be covered in a future survey. The level of historical exploration in this belt is insufficient to test its potential for additional possible nickel-sulphide discoveries.

Quality Control

The data collected from the airborne survey will be monitored during collection and subsequently interpreted by Isabelle Dumas, Eng, MScA, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Marifil Mines Ltd.: San Roque Base Metal Deposit Now 1,700m by 2,500m & Open Ended


SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - April 7, 2008) - Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) is pleased to announce results from its second round of drilling on the company's wholly owned San Roque base metal project, in Rio Negro Province, Argentina. Drill holes 52 to 55 have continued to cut long intercepts of base metals along with gold-silver-indium (see news release dated January 8, 2008). The mineralization is indicative of a porphyry type disseminated sulphide system that is believed to be up to three kilometres in diameter.

Previously, silver values were not reported for drill hole 51. In this round of drilling, hole 51 cut 143 meters (m) of 0.66 grams per ton (g/t) gold, 27.2 g/t silver, 0.37% lead and 0.55% zinc. Drill hole 52 cut 127.8 m grading 0.22% lead and 0.40% zinc. Drill hole 53 cut 26.0 m grading 0.24% lead and 0.62% zinc. Drill hole 55 cut 75.6 m grading 0.12 g/t gold, 3.9 g/t silver, 0.26% lead and 0.81% zinc, followed by 5.8 m grading 0.37% lead and 0.58% zinc, followed by 13.7 m grading 0.4% lead and 0.82% zinc, followed by 25.3 m grading 0.43% lead and 0.89% zinc.

This second round of drilling produced significant intercepts of combined gold, silver, indium, lead and zinc values in all 16 holes, as illustrated in Table 1.

"We continue to believe that San Roque is a huge discovery," stated Mr. John Hite, president of Marifil Mines. "Our initial two rounds of drilling focused on testing indium and gold-bearing epithermal veins. As a result, we have now identified significant amounts of disseminated base metals over a zone measuring 1,700 m in a northeast-southwest direction and 2,400 m in a northwest-southeast direction. Mineralization is open-ended in every direction, including at depth."

The company is currently analysing the new drilling information in conjunction with new geophysical survey results and is planning a third round of drilling of at least 10,000 m to further probe the vast sulphide system. All 55 holes drilled so far contain significant amounts of gold, silver, indium, lead, and zinc. Marifil's exploration model is similar to Goldcorp Inc.'s world-class Peñasquito deposit in the state Zacatecas, Mexico.

MARIFIL ACQUIRES 100,000 HECTARES OF POTASH LANDS

Marifil Mines Ltd.'s continuing exploration program for potash in the Neuquen basin in Argentina resulted in identification of two potash horizons from electric logs from an abandoned oil-well drill hole.

Analysis of electric logs from this 1996 hole suggests that there are two potassium horizons as follows: an upper horizon from 1,303 metres to 1,314 m followed by a lower horizon from 1,314 m to 1,323 m. The lower horizon is of higher grade as in Rio Tinto's nearby Rio Colorado mine and can be estimated at 15 to 20 per cent K2O; the grade of the upper horizon is estimated to run between 5 to 15 per cent in K2O.

Rio Tinto's Rio Colorado mine has a geologic resource of two billion tons of KCl. KCl is the chemical composition of the mineral sylvite, which is highly soluble in water.

Based on this analysis, the company has staked 100,000 hectares and is now planning to conduct a National Instrument 43-101 study of this exciting new prospect. The company owns 100 per cent of this new project.

John Hite reports: "The focus of this company is to build value in Argentina. Recently we acquired some land with potash potential and quickly sold it to Latin American Potash, which in turn was acquired by Allana Resources. We immediately began a program to discover additional resources. This new discovery is just the second from an ongoing non-metallic program for coal, sulphur, potash, limestone and phosphate. In keeping with our business plan, the company intends to farm out or joint venture this property."

This press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Hite, president of Marifil Mines, and by Richard Walters, vice-president, under whose directions the exploration program is being carried out. Mr. Hite and Mr. Walters are qualified persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

We seek Safe Harbor.
