Lithic Intersects 16.76 Metres of 0.432% MoS2 at Crypto
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2009) - Lithic Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LTH) (the "Company") is pleased to report additional molybdenum assay results from its Crypto skarn-hosted zinc-indium-copper-molybdenum project located in western Utah. Hole C08-13A was drilled into a large gap in historical drill coverage within the deep sulphide zone and essentially constituted a 70 metre step-out from historical hole CCC-6A. Hole C08-14 was drilled as a 100 metre westerly stepout from the margin of the deep sulphide zone. Zinc, copper and indium results for these holes will be published shortly.


- a 36.58 metre wide intercept of skarn-hosted molybdenite mineralization grading 0.287% MoS2 in hole C08-14, including an interval grading 0.432% MoS2 over 16.76 metres

- several intercepts of skarn and intrusive hosted molybdenite mineralization grading better than 0.1% MoS2 in hole C08-13A, including 11.28 metres at 0.232% MoS2,

The following table lists the more significant intersections for these holes:

Molybdenite mineralization at Crypto has been found over an area of about 500 metres by 300 metres, both as disseminations in skarn and in porphyry-style quartz-pyrite veinlets in clay-altered quartz monzonite. Its widespread distribution suggests that zinc-indium-copper and silver-lead mineralization on the Crypto property may represent classic peripheral mineralization associated with a large, underlying, zoned porphyry molybdenum system, the core of which remains to be found.

Since a number of current and historical molybdenite-bearing intercepts are relatively high grade, the possibility also exists of a relatively small but high grade and high value molybdenum deposit which could be mineable through a single shaft, were it to be developed, on the zinc-indium-copper skarn deposit. Either case represents a prime objective for further drilling on the property.
