Crowflight Intersects Additional High Grade Nickel Intervals At Bucko Deposit, Thompson Nickel Belt

 TORONTO: CROWFLIGHT MINERALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:CML) is pleased to announce that the Company has received assay results from diamond drill holes N-05-21A and N-05-021B, wedges off the historical N-21 at the Bucko Deposit in the Thompson Nickel Belt, as part of its metallurgical and in-fill drilling program. Of significance is wedged hole N-05-21B, which intersected an approximate 32 metre interval that included disseminated to semi-massive sulphides grading 2.5% nickel and which included a high grade interval grading 6.40% nickel over 7.6 metres (intervals are core lengths):
DDH #       Length    Nickel   Copper
             (m)       (%)      (%)
---------------------------------------------------------------
N-05-21A     7.2      2.49    0.15 (from 222.4 to 229.6 metres)

N-05-21B    31.7      2.46    0.26 (from 210.7 to 242.4 metres)
 incl.       7.6      6.40    0.83 (from 224.8 to 232.4 metres)
Individual assays for the intervals are given in appended Table 1. Platinum and Palladium assays are still pending. The original drill hole (the hole from which hole BK-05-21A and B were wedged) N-21 contained three zones averaging 2.93% nickel over 7.1 metres (from 201.6 to 208.7 metres down hole length), 3.62% nickel over 7.9 metres (from 226.6 to 234.5 metres down hole length) and 1.40% nickel over 4.8 metres (from 238.5 to 243.3 metres down hole length). Wedged holes BK-05-21A and B intersected mineralization roughly 20 metres from any previous intersection (N-16).

Results do confirm a number of historical assays from core drilling in the top central portion of the Bucko Deposit, roughly 150 to 175 metres from surface:
  • Hole N-16 (20 metres north) intersected 5.44% nickel over 8.5 metres
  • Hole N-5 (40 metres south) intersected 6.69% nickel over 3.0 metres
  • Hole N-20 (40 metres above) intersected 1.50% nickel over 4.9 metres
  • Hole N-14 (40 metres above and south) intersected 1.72% nickel over 8.7 metres

Core from diamond drill hole N-05-21B will be shown during the Prospector's and Developer's Convention in Toronto at the Crowflight Minerals Booth #2912 on March 7th and 8th in the Main Hall of the Metro Convention Centre, North Building Crowflight has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Bucko Resource Block by completing a feasibility study, arranging financing and bringing the deposit into production. To date a number of activities are progressing to advance the project to the feasibility stage, including resource block modeling, metallurgical testing, environmental and geotechnical studies and mine design and milling to name a few (refer to press release dated March 1, 2005).

A number of assays are pending on additional metallurgical and in-fill drill holes on the Bucko Deposit, step-out (down-dip and lateral step-out holes) holes at Bucko and exploration drill holes in other areas being explored under the Crowflight-Falconbridge partnership on the 440 km2 Thompson Nickel Belt ("TNB") properties. Assays from these holes and other drill holes, as part of a 20,000 metre diamond drill campaign on numerous targets across the TNB on several Thompson/Birchtree-type targets, are expected to be released over the coming weeks.

Qualified Person/Quality Control Notes
This press release has been prepared and revised by Mr. Jean Lafleur, P. Geo., Crowflight's VP Exploration, a Qualified Person under the NI 43-101 guidelines, based on data provided by Falconbridge Limited. Fire assays are performed at the ALS-Chemex laboratory in Vancouver on all the samples for Gold and PGE's which undergo an ICP-AES finish and Sodium Peroxide Fusion. All other metals undergo an ICP-AES finish. Standards and blanks are submitted with each sample batch. Falconbridge's Senior Geologist Robert Banville is the project's Qualified Person for the assay database verification and validation (QA/QC program).

Crowflight - The Base Metal Builder
Crowflight Minerals Inc. is a Canadian junior mining exploration and development company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.
