Sego Resources Trenching locates 32 m 1.39% Copper, 0.94 grams/tonne Gold

NEWS RELEASE
June 2, 2008

Sego Resources reports that additional assay results have been received from the 3200 metre excavator trenching program on its Miner Mountain Project. The trenching and reclamation is contracted to the Upper Similkameen Indian Band and its highly qualified personnel. Consulting is being provided by Vic Preto, Ph.D., P.Eng. These results are from what has been known as the Regal Zone. This trench is the most westerly of the trenches to encounter mineralization along an east west trend that continues through the Granby Zone. Sego Resources Inc. suspects that the Regal and Granby Zones may link together and have planned further trenching to be followed by diamond drilling to determine if the zones do, in fact, link together. Supporting the possibility that the zones may link is a comment in the 1908 Annual Report of the Minister of Mines in British Columbia page J-130, which states “Development consists of three tunnels, two shafts and a series of open cuts, extending for almost a mile along the cropping of the large copper-gold bearing lead, which strikes across the property in a west-east direction. About 500 feet of underground work has been completed disclosing extensive bodies of ore and coal. … The lead, so far as determined is from 100 to 150 feet in width and shows up for about one mile within the limits of the property.” The company developing this showing was primarily a coal company and with the lack of a coal market all work was terminated.
