|May 25, 2004
May 25, 2004 - International Tower Hill Mines Ltd. (TSX: ITH, OTC BB: ITHMF, www.towerhillmines.com) wishes to advise that it has commenced its Spring 2004 diamond drill program on its 100% owned Siwash Property in south central British Columbia. The Siwash Property is located in close proximity to both Brenda Mines Ltd. (copper and molybdenum production) and Almaden Minerals Ltd. (gold production) mineral projects. The 2004 program has been designed to further delineate the gold, silver and copper values intersected in the northeastern portion of the property. Drill results to date indicate a similar style of mineralization as that found at Brenda Mines. In addition, these drill results indicate that the gold/silver/copper mineralization extends approximately 500 meters in a north-south direction and 800 meters in an east-west direction to a depth of approximately 125 meters. Drilling also indicates that this zone is still open to the west, north, east and depth.
The 2004 drill program will compose of a minimum of four drill holes varying from 200 meters to 300 meters, AZ 0° dip varying from -57° to 65° and will be concentrated in the area north and east of holes 01-1, 01-2, 01-5 and 01-6. All holes will be drilled in the mineralized granodiorite.
The Company will advise further as results of the program are received.
