El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. Updates Geological and Geophysical Results.

Business Editors

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 19, 2003

El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCBB:ECPN) said today that in response to numerous inquiries, it is providing preliminary assay results recently completed on the El Capitan mining property in Capitan, New Mexico.

The El Capitan property consists of approximately 200 acres of patented and unpatented lode claims located in the South Central New Mexico county of Lincoln.

Exploration has shown there exists more than 7.5 million tons of iron ore and over 58 million tons of indicated and inferred mineral reserves. The preliminary assays commissioned by the operator, Gold and Minerals Co., Inc., indicate there exists a potential for the discovery of recoverable amounts of precious metals contained within the lode claims held by El Capitan.

The recently completed preliminary core sampling program reflected high concentrations of gold within the iron ore. In addition, high concentrations of silver were found and other precious metals within the platinum group were present. A total of eleven samples were tested and the results of the modified fire assay were gold amounts ranging from 0.07 to 0.41 troy ounce per ton. Results for the other precious metals groups are being evaluated and are pending.

"While the results of the preliminary samples are extremely encouraging," stated Chuck Mottley, President of El Capitan Precious Metals, "we need to conduct a larger sampling to further confirm those numbers."
