News Releases

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Skygold Ventures Ltd. ("Skygold") (TSX VENTURE:SKV) and Wildrose Resources Ltd. ("Wildrose") (TSX VENTURE:WRS) are pleased to announce diamond drill results from the on-going exploration program at the Spanish Mountain Project in Central British Columbia. Wide zones of gold mineralization continue to be intersected outside the limits of the initial resource calculation indicating the potential to significantly expand on this resource.

Highlights:

  • Hole 08-DDH-722 intersected 47.5 metres of 2.04 g/t gold including 25.0 metres of 3.19 g/t gold and 16.0 metres of 1.51 g/t gold in two separate zones 275 metres west of the resource area.
  • Hole 08-DDH-706 intersected 25.0 metres of 1.16 g/t gold 150 metres west of the resource area.
  • Hole 08-DDH-714 intersected 1.0 metre of 37.6 g/t gold and 10.5 metres of 1.13 g/t gold 350 metres west of the resource area.

Discussion of Results:

Drilling at Spanish Mountain continues to expand upon the area of known mineralization previously included in the Company's NI43-101 compliant preliminary resource estimate which was reported on April 3, 2008. To date, 97 holes totaling 26,313.6 metres have been drilled to confirm the expansion of the Main Zone. Final assay results for these holes are anticipated by July of 2008 at which time Skygold will begin updating the resource calculation. Hole 08-DDH-722 returned one of the widest intercepts of gold grading in excess of 2 g/t from the Main Zone. This hole lies approximately 275 metres west of the current resource area and remains open for follow-up drilling. High grade mineralization was intersected in hole 08-DDH-714, 350 metres west of the resource area. This mineralization which averaged 37.60 g/t gold over 1.0 metre is similar in character to other high grade intercepts in this area and remains open in all directions.

Mr. Brian Groves, President and CEO of Skygold Ventures, stated, "We are very pleased with on-going work at Spanish Mountain - our flagship property in the historic Cariboo gold camp. With our current resource, we believe that the Spanish Mountain Property now hosts one of the largest gold deposits ever discovered in the region. Holes such as 08-DDH-722 clearly indicate that there is excellent potential to significantly expand upon the current compliant resource. We have drilled an area of the Main Zone that is now approximately twice the area of the initial resource estimate and many holes have assays pending. The Main Zone still remains open in several directions beyond the expanded area of drilling. Combined with this potential, we have already reported very positive metallurgical results. The Company also plans to drill several areas of the property which lie up to 3 kilometres away from the Main Zone and over which previous work has shown strong gold anomalies with similar characteristics to the Main Zone."
