Supreme Resources Ltd. wishes to announce that it has completed the 2009 exploration program on the TAS project. The exploration program consisted of testing a Titan 24 induced polarization chargeability anomaly with three drill holes totaling 801.01 metres. The induced polarization anomaly is located at the south end of the TAS claim (511400) and extends to depths of up to 300 metres.
The drill holes intersected Wolfe Creek Formation volcaniclastic rocks as well as several 25 to 30 metres wide dykes and/or sills of diorite of the Copper Mountain intrusions. Post mineralization dykes were also intersected in the drilling. Variable propylitic alteration occurs throughout the drill holes with up to 5% pyrite and 3% pyrrhotite. Traces of chalcopyrite and sphalerite occur with the pyrite and pyrrhotite.
Samples of the most strongly mineralized zones were collected from all three drill holes and sent for analysis. Sample widths were generally two to four metres. Copper values were low with most samples less than 200 ppm. Zinc values were unexpectedly high and ranged up to 14000 ppm (1.4%) zinc across 4 metres (115.67-119.67 metres) in drill hole 2902. Three other samples gave zinc values greater than 1000 ppm (0.1%) zinc.

The TAS project is located 17 kilometres south of Princeton B.C., immediately east of Copper Mountain Mining Corporation’s Copper Mountain project that is slated to resume production in 2011.
Eco Tech laboratory Ltd. of Kamloops, B.C., an accredited laboratory and subsidiary of Alex Stewart Group Ltd. conducted the sample preparation and analysis. All sample analysis is 30 gram fire assay-A.A. finish for gold and 35 multi-element ICPMS. The sample stream was subject to check analysis on repeat and re-split samples.
Grant F. Crooker, PGeo (geologist) is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who supervised the preparation and verification of the technical information in this release.
Further news will be forthcoming in the near future.
