Tunnels At Habo Property Turn Up High Grade Mineralization

Asia Now (TSX-V: NOW)


Assay results have been received on a total of 120 chip grab samples. These samples were taken from outcrops and 6 tunnels in a new 40 square kilometer area on Asia Now's Habo property.

Widespread mineralization is evident throughout. This, along with some very high grade zones in older tunnels, have shown the company that the property has potential to be a large scale open-pit mining operation.

All the examined 6 tunnels show high grade mineralization. Highlights include tunnel LPD2 with 2.96 grams of gold per tonne and 0.94% molybdenum, and tunnel LPD4 with 242.3 grams per tonne of silver and 9.96 % copper.

Surface and geological mapping have been taking place during the dry season at Habo helping identify drill targets for 2008.

Evidence of a large copper-molybdenum anomaly in North Habo has yet to be drilled and further assays from channel samples are expected within three weeks to help define the high grade mineralization zones.
