May 4, 2010: Vancouver British Columbia - Cresval Capital Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX-V:CRV) has received the 2009 Exploration Report for the Company’s 100% owned, 9,660-hectare Bridge River copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project located near Gold Bridge in southwest British Columbia. The full report, which includes 2009 results and recommendations for 2010, is available on the Company’s website at www.cresval.com.2009 Program Expands BR Showing
The 2009 program, which was limited by forest fire activity in the region, consisted primarily of mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling. A 4-line km conventional soil survey and hand trenching was also conducted over the Copper Plateau portion of the BR showing in the western claim area. This work resulted in further expansion of the BR showing into the plateau area which is more amenable to open pit mining than the mineralized cliffs to the south. The soil survey delineated a 450 by 550m copper-in-soil anomaly open onto the copper bearing cliffs to the south and open to the east with a maximum value of 4120 ppm Cu. An isolated soil sample, collected over 200 metres north of the grid, returned 1260 ppm Cu and 5.4 ppm Ag. A reconnaissance soil sample collected 1.5 km northeast of the grid returned an anomalous 457 ppm Mo. Significant hand trench results, limited by the length of the trench, include 0.49% Cu over 4.5 metres and 0.84% Cu over 2.8 metres. Additional Copper Mineralization on Windy Copper Showing
Prospecting on the Windy Copper showing, located one km to the northeast and reported to contain 3.26% Cu over 9.1 metres and 0.44% Cu across 24.5 metres, uncovered additional copper mineralization, now exposed over a 300 metre by 150 metre area, limited by cover of the younger basalts.
Copper mineralization is widespread within the 5 by 14 km Bridge River Pluton despite 30% being covered by a thin veneer of younger basalts. The pluton covers three Minfile copper showings (documented by the British Columbia Geological Survey) over a 12 km extent: the Nichol, the Russnor and the BR, as well as other significant showings such as Windy Copper.
Previous results include:
• 3.50% Cu, 34.3 g/t Ag, 0.079% Mo over 8.5 metres from drilling on the Nichol showing in 1961
• 1.38% Cu over 30.5 metres from an old adit
• 0.30% Cu over 36.6 metres from drilling on the Russnor intrusive breccia in 1961
• 0.14% Cu over 17 metres from 1960’s trenching on the BR showing.Proposed 2010 Program to Include Diamond Drilling Being Considered
Phase 1 of the exploration program will consist of airborne and ground geophysics, geochemistry and trenching. One all the information from these surveys has been interpreted and proposed drill collars have been identified the Company will consider a diamond drill program with emphasis being placed on the Copper Plateau region.
The Phase 1 program includes:
1) a 1,200 line kilometre helicopter supported multi-parameter (radiometric, electromagnetic and high resolution magnetic) airborne geophysical survey over the Bridge River Pluton and surroundings to evaluate the widespread copper mineralization within the pluton
2) 1500 metres of excavator trenching on the Copper Plateau at the BR showing to follow up the significant mineralization exposed in hand trenches and float and the copper in soil anomaly in this topographically favourable area for open pit mining
3) A soil and induced polarization (IP) geophysical survey on the Russnor and Windy Copper showings.
The completion of 2.0 km of trail access into the Russnor showing, to facilitate soil geochemical and geophysical surveys and subsequent drilling, has been permitted and is recommended to be completed prior to the work in the Russnor area.
