2004 News Releases

Lang Lake Copper-Gold Explorations Started

September 8, 2004

Maple Minerals Corp. ("Maple") (TSXV:MPM) and East West Resource Corporation (“East West”) (TSXV: EWR) are pleased to announce that geological mapping and grid work have commenced on the Lang Lake copper-gold project 40 miles west of Pickel Lake, Ontario in order to locate trenches and old drill sites that were completed in 1967 – 1968. A resource of 23 million tonnes of 0.35% copper had been outlined by Hanna Mining (mndm files), however very limited gold assaying had been done since gold at that time was $35 per ounce in price. Quartz veins located to the side of the deposit assayed up to 0.14 ounces (4.6 g Au/tonne) and occasional samples taken from the copper magnetite mineralization assayed 0.3 – 0.6 grams gold with occasional 1 – 2 gram values.

A porphyry is associated with the mineralization as well as a large folded iron formation. A weak EM conductor was found to be associated with the mineralization zone by a survey flown for the OGS. Several other similar conductors have been noted on the property.

Previous IP and soil (copper) surveys have indicated that up to 5 untested areas of similar dimension to the deposit occur on the property within 1000 meters of the original copper discovery. These targets were located within a couple of days of start up. Ground EM and magnetic surveys will be completed as part of the geological mapping exercise to assist in planning future drilling.

Pursuant to a property option agreement, Maple and East West have the option to acquire a 100% interest in the Lang Lake Property, subject to a 2% NSR. Robert S. Middleton, P. Eng., is the designated Qualified Person and is responsible for the verification and quality assurance of the exploration data and analytical results.

Maple Minerals Corp. is a Toronto based resource company with properties in Africa, Canada and the Dominican Republic. For more information about Maple, please visit the company’s website at
