Cartier Cuts 24.5 g/t Gold Over 3.0 Meters on Benoist Project

Cartier Cuts 24.5 g/t Gold Over 3.0 Meters on Benoist Project 
VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Cartier Resources
Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") announces additional drill results
from recent drilling that confirm the continuity at depth of the
Pusticamica gold deposit (refer to press release dated September 18,
2012), on the Benoist project. The new results increase the volume of
the gold mineralized zone. 
Additional sampling in drill Hole Pu-12-01 yielded 24.5 g/t gold over
3.0 meters(i) at a depth of 475 meters and is included within a
mineralized envelop that grades 0.9 g/t gold over 134.0 meters. This
new gold intersection, along the depth extension of the Pusticamica
Gold-Bearing Zone, is situated over 200 meters from historical
drilling and is located 27 meters from a high grade intersection
recently announced grading 9.3 g/t gold over 3.0 meters included
within an interval grading 0.6 g/t Au over 73.0 meters. 
"This project acquisition completed in March 2012 now shows greater
reward potential for Cartier investors since the results of our first
drill programme confirm that the Pusticamica Gold-Bearing Zone is
wide, continuous and opens at depth. The programme was aimed at
better defining and increasing the volume of the gold-bearing
mineralization of the deposit." commented Philippe Cloutier,
President and Chief Executive Officer. "These two new high grade
intersections, each 3.0 meters wide, demonstrate the continuity of
the gold mineralization at depths over 475 meters. The 2012 objective
has been reached and the team is confident in planning the 2013
programme with the aim of further growing this project." added Mr.
Cloutier. 
The Benoist project is situated 65 km north-east of the town of
Lebel-sur-Quevillon, 25 km from the Bachelor Mine in Desmaraisville
and 30 km from the Nyrstar's Gonzague-Langlois Mine.
