VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Skygold Ventures Ltd. (Skygold) (TSX VENTURE:SKV), a Vancouver-based resource company ,and its partner Wildrose Resources Ltd. (Wildrose) (TSX VENTURE:WRS), today announced assay results from an additional 6 diamond drill holes on the Spanish Mountain gold property in south-central British Columbia that continue to expand the project's Main Zone.

Drilling beneath the Imperial Metals pit has confirmed the downward extension of the known mineralization that was the target of a bulk sample of 1908 tonnes whose grade was determined to be 3.02 g/t gold. Previous interpretations would have indicated that the Central Main Zone comes to surface at the pit. Hole 562 intersected 3 separate zones that totalled 105.5 m of mineralization and weight averaged 1.27 g/t gold including 46.5 metres grading 1.56 g/t gold indicating the zone is open at depth. Hole 557 has intercepted 54.36 m of mineralization in 2 separate zones weight averaging 1.17 g/t gold including 42.0 m of 1.21 g/t gold.

Mineralization within the Main Zone is associated with at least three separate, sub-parallel, stratigraphic horizons up to 500 metres wide and up to 135 metres thick. Geophysics completed in 2006, in conjunction with drilling and surface sampling has defined these favourable horizons over at least 2.5 kilometres. The extent of drilling within the Main Zone to date has tested only 20% of this area.

As previously reported, drilling within the Main Zone has significantly increased its east west extent to at least 740 metres while regional drilling has intersected gold mineralization 1.5 kilometres west of the Main Zone.

Hole locations in plan view relating to geophysical signatures can be viewed on the company website, www.skygold.ca.

Results for a further 24 reverse circulation and 11 diamond drill holes are pending. Results are expected within the next few weeks.

The new results include a selection of holes drilled within the middle stratigraphic horizon stepping out to the west of the Main Zone. All 6 holes have intercepted meaningful mineralization.

The following table summarizes the most significant results from the Central Main Zone.
