March 11, 2009. Vancouver, BC -- Pacific North West Capital Corp. (PFN) (TSX: PFN; OTCBB: PAWEF; Frankfurt: P7J.F) is pleased to announce that drilling on the Fiedmont Platinum Group Metals (PGM) property near Val d'Or, QC, will commence on March 16, 2009. PFN has the option to earn a 60% interest in the Fiedmont property from Kinbauri Gold Corp. ("Kinbauri") (TSX.V: KNB), subject to a 2% NSR held by the original vendors. The vendor's NSR is subject to a one percent (1%), $900,000 buy-back. Further to the news release dated December 16/2008, PFN may pay Kinbauri an aggregate amount of $98,000, issue 150,000 PFN common shares to Kinbauri, and expend $400,000 on exploration prior to November 30th, 2010 to earn its interest.
The Fiedmont property is located 30 kilometres north of Val d'Or and is road accessible. The property consists of 84 claim (3,458 ha) covering the Fiedmont Intrusive Complex. In 2006, Kinbauri completed a four hole diamond drilling program totalling 240 meters, and a heli-borne magnetometer survey. In 2008, Kinbauri collected 1811 humus samples as part of a geochemical survey.
Mineralization on the property consists of disseminated sulphides in silicified gabbroic rocks. Five showings have been identified to date, four of which occur along a distinct magnetic trend that appears to be associated with the northern contact of the intrusion. Chip samples from these showings returned grades of up to 1.52 g/t Pt and 4.21g/t Pd over surface widths of 1.0 meters. Kinbauri's 2006 drill program returned grades of up to 0.45 g/t Pt and 1.04 g/t Pd over 5.0 meters apparent width.
The planned drill program consists of 10 holes totalling approximately 1500 meters.
The holes will test coincident humus geochemical and magnetic anomalies associated with known PGM showings in the Fiedmont Complex. The attached map shows the planned drill hole locations plotted on a total field magnetic image for the area.
