News Release 10-03

Vancouver, BC - International Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. ("Wayside", the "Company") wishes to announce that it has discovered a new zone, outside and north west of the proposed Cariboo Gold Quartz open pit mine on Cow Mountain, of replacement-like gold mineralization in a rock type not known before to carry gold within this camp. The assay results from the Company's 2009 drill campaign follow below. Highlights of these assays include:

  • Drill hole CM09-07 intercepted replacement-like gold mineralization:

    • 13.5 meters (44.2 feet) of 5.06 g/T (0.148 oz/t) gold

  • Drill hole CM09-08 intercepted both replacement and quartz vein style gold mineralization:

    • 10.1 meters (33.3 feet) of 1.51 g/T (0.044 oz/t) gold
The new replacement-like mineralization found in holes CM 09-06, 07, 08 and 11 is distinctly different than that found in the NI 43-101 resource at the proposed open pit at Cow Mountain and bears similarities to, yet different from, the higher-grade replacement ore found on the adjacent Island Mountain and Barkerville Mountain (the proposed Bonanza Ledge mine). While quartzite carrying lower-grade pyrite (with less gold associated with it) is common in the camp, drill hole CM09-07 carrying only 1-3% disseminated pyrite and/or blebs, for the first time returned as high 49.5 g/T gold in the pure grey blocky quartzite of Rainbow 1 Sub-unit at the Baker-Rainbow contact - indicating the potential discovery of a fourth style of gold mineralization on the Company's project.

Further drilling will be conducted in 2010 to gain a better control and understanding of the continuity of both the replacement/replacement-like and the quartz vein types of mineralized body intercepted by drill hole CM09-07, CM09-08 and other related drill holes mentioned above in the northwest Cow Mountain area.

The 2009 drill program on Cow and Barkerville Mountains targeted both the replacement and quartz vein types of gold mineralization. In total, 13 diamond drill holes (of which, 11 are on Cow Mountain and 2 on Barkerville Mountain) have been completed in the 2009 calendar year. Drill holes CM09-04 through CM09-11 are the first drill holes that the Company has done in the northwest Cow Mountain area, outside of the proposed pit.

About International Wayside Gold Mines

The Company has been developing its Cariboo Gold Project in Barkerville, B.C., which encompasses (from northwest to south east) the former producing Hardscrabble Tungsten Mine, Mosquito Creek Gold Mine (now on care and maintenance), Aurum Mine, Island Mountain Mine, Cariboo Gold Quartz Mine, Bonanza Ledge (proposed mine), the Cariboo Thompson Gold & Silver Mine and the Cariboo Hudson Mine. The Company commenced operations in the Cariboo District in 1994 and since that time has focused on the exploration and development of its gold properties. The Company's mineral tenures in the Historic Barkerville Gold Camp encompass approximately 1,065 square km (106,484 hectares) over a 60km by 20km wide belt. In the Historic Barkerville Gold Camp, 101 creeks have reported placer gold production. Recorded gold production from the area totals more than 3.8 million ounces, including an estimated 2.64 million ounces from placer mining and 1.23 million ounces from lode mining. On December 16, 2009, the Company entered into an agreement by which it will acquire the QR Mine and Mill, 110km by road from its Bonanza Ledge proposed open pit gold deposit.

The technical information in this News Release has been reviewed and approved by Chief Geologist Jim Yin, PhD, P.Geo, a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
