Drilling Confirms Broad Gold Zones at Kelly Creek Prospect

Results include 1.04 g/t Au over 26.8 metres and 0.74 g.t Au over 21.70 metres

September 26, 2011 - Vancouver, British Columbia - Cedar Mountain Exploration Inc. (CED: TSXV) (“Cedar Mountain” or the "Company") is pleased to announce the initial drill results from the Kelly Creek Project on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska.  Drill core assay results from the first 18 diamond drill holes (1820.5 metres) at the Kelly Creek Prospect have confirmed the presence of broad intervals of gold mineralization in sheared and brecciated carbonaceous schist.

“We are very encouraged by the results of our 2011 drilling at the Kelly Creek Prospect” stated Charles Chebry, President and CEO. “The drill results confirm the presence of zones of bedrock gold mineralization which were targeted from broad soil geochemistry targets generated last year. The 2011 drilling indicates that the best grades are associated with zones of quartz veining and stockworking within fractured and sheared carbonaceous schist and ongoing studies will allow us to effectively target the mineralized trends in future campaigns” added Mr. Chebry.

Eighteen drill holes totaling 1820.5 m were completed on the Kelly Creek prospect in 2011. Eight holes (11KC01-05 and 11KC10-12) targeted a strong linear soil anomaly first tested by Anaconda in 1984, four holes (11KC06-09) tested possible extensions of this zone to the southeast, and six holes (11KC13-18) tested another area with a strong soil anomaly in the headwaters of Kelly Creek.

The drill results (see Table 1) confirm the gold-bearing zone first drilled by Anaconda (11KC05; 1.04g/t Au over 26.8 metres). This zone extends 500 metres northeast to near Kelly Creek (11KC12; 0.85 g/t Au over 16.5 metres, including 1.34 g/t Au over 7.5 metres) and remains open to the northeast.  The drill holes in the headwater area of Kelly Creek identified one strong but narrow mineralized zone (11KC14; 2.27 g/t Au over 3.10 metres) which has not fully explained the source of the strong gold-in-soil anomaly in this area.

The results from the Kelly Creek Prospect are the initial tranche (18 holes in 1820.5 metres) of 4815.2 metres in 45 holes completed at The Kelly Creek Project in 2011. Results for all the drill holes at the Wolf (four holes totaling 469.6 m), Wolverine (seven holes totaling 755.4 m), South Fox Zone 1 (seven holes totaling 864.6 m), South Fox Zone 2 (three holes totaling 237.2 m), and North Fox (6 holes totaling 668.5 m) prospects are pending.
