Drilling Commences on West Porcupine Gold Property, Timmins, Ontario

September 20, 2005

TORONTO, ONTARIO, September 20, 2005 – Maple Minerals Corp. ("Maple") (MPM:TSX-V) and partner Canadian Golden Dragon Resources Ltd. (“Dragon”) (CGG:TSX-V) have been informed by Maestro Ventures Ltd. (“Maestro”) (MAP:TSX-V) that a 1,000 metre drill program has commenced on the West Porcupine Gold Property 34 km southwest of Timmins, Ontario. The property covers 10 miles of stratigraphy and structures that are similar to the Timmins (Porcupine) Gold Camp, where more than 70 million ounces of gold have been produced from 31 mines.

IP anomalies associated with interflow carbonate alteration and shear zones will be tested. In addition, a step out drill hole from a 1994 discovery, where 0.195 ounces of gold per ton over 39 feet was recorded, will be completed. The geological setting of the western part of the property is similar to the Bell Creek Gold Mine, whereas the “Deerfoot” area in the central portion of the property is geologically similar to the Mcintyre and Hollinger Gold Mines, due to the association with a large quartz eye porphyry containing molybdenum.

Maple and Dragon currently own 100% of the property, subject to a 2% net smelter return royalty in favour of Newmont Canada Ltd. Maestro may earn a 50% interest in the property by carrying out acceptable assessment work on the property totaling $2.5 million in tranches over a five year period. Upon earning its 50% interest, a joint venture will be formed and Maestro will be the initial operator.

The project set out above is being supervised by Robert S. Middleton, P. Eng., who is a qualified person.

Maple is a Toronto based resource company with property interests in Australia, Argentina, Mongolia, Africa and Canada. For more information about Maple, please visit the company’s website at
