Gem Quality Deposit Discovered

Anglo Swiss Resources Inc.(ASW-M, ASWC-OTCBB) is pleased to announce the discovery of a garnet deposit and is presently facetting a selection of gem quality garnets for appraisal. The deposit is situated on the company's Blu Starr group of claims located in the Slocan Valley in south- eastern British Columbia.

The garnet crystals frequently exceed 10 cm in diameter. Facet grade material, located in the centres, yielded several carat gemstones displaying excellent clarity and are an intense pinkish red in color. Compositionally, the garnets are intermediate between almandine and pyrope, possibly the variety known as rhodolite; exact definition awaits gemological confirmation. The garnets occur within feldspar-rich pegmatite sills and dikes, hosted by garnet- amphibolite layers of the Valhalla metamorphic gneiss complex. A transparent gem-grade variety of feldspar known as moonstone also occurs with the garnet. Several other zones containing megacrystic garnet have been located and are currently being explored.

Elsewhere on the property, initial exploration of a large system of quartz tourmaline pegmatite (hosting gem-grade aquamarine beryl) has resulted in the identification of several new mineralized zones.

The discovery of gem quality garnets during the early stages of the 1998 exploration program is very encouraging to the company and is a welcome addition to the other known gemstone deposits of sapphire, aquamarine, beryl, tourmaline, titanite, moonstone and several varieties of quartz.

Further prospecting and pan sampling of water courses on the 11,000 acre property are being conducted to locate additional deposits of sapphire and the other gemstones. Sapphire/gemstones have been identified in numerous other sites at river level and at upper elevations throughout the valley, which have been announced in previous news releases.

On behalf of the Board,
"Len Danard"
President & CEO
