TORONTO, ON, Canada, Feb. 7, 2011 -- Cadillac Ventures Inc. is pleased to announce that Cadillac has retained AECOM, a global provider of professional technical and management support services in environment, transportation, facilities, energy, and water, to move forward with project development at the Thierry Mine site. With approximately 52,000 employees worldwide (4,000 in Canada), AECOM offers a full range of geological mine engineering, strategic environmental planning, regulatory support, GIS and remote sensing, First Nation consultation and other related services to the mining industry. AECOM's team of ecologists, hydrogeologists, geotechnical engineers, and environmental scientists have commenced a comprehensive program of water monitoring and structural assessments, to commence the dewatering process. The Thierry Mine site is presently permitted for dewatering.
A diamond drilling program designed to test for shallower extensions of mineralization from the known and modeled deposit, as depicted below, is ongoing. The deeper drill program, targeting the tooth depicted below, consists of 6 planned holes. Three of these holes were completed by the end of 2010, each of those having successfully intersected mineralization where anticipated. The remaining 3 holes will be drilled as planned commencing later in February. After this drilling has been completed an updated 43-101 compliant resource calculation will be undertaken and an independent economic scoping study completed.
Mr. Brian H. Newton P.Geo, of Billiken Management Services Inc. and a "qualified person" pursuant to NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release on behalf of the Company.

In Spain, the Company is joint venture partner with Minas de Aguas Tenidas, S.A.U. regarding the exploration of 12 different investigation licenses surrounding the Aguas Tenidas Mine in the Iberian Pyrite Belt of southern Spain. The Pickle Lake Gold project held by Cadillac is a land package contiguous to three formerly productive historic gold mines; this project has been joint ventured to Newcastle Minerals Ltd.
