Victoria Provides Update on Nevada Gold Projects

TORONTO, ON, December 15, 2009 - Victoria Gold Corp. (VIT.TSX-V) (�Victoria� or the �Company�) is pleased to provide a status update on several of the Company�s Nevada gold projects.

Cove Preliminary Resource/Engineering Study
Scott-Wilson Roscoe Postle (�SWRPA�) is now in the final stages of completing a preliminary resource/engineering evaluation of the Helen Zone located at the Cove property, Nevada.  The delivery timeline has been revised to early 2010 because of the following scope changes instituted to optimize the study:

1) comprehensive analysis (including digitizing) of exploration information generated by several previous operators in the general Helen Zone area; and

2) evaluation of alternate sites for the portal location of the adit to access the underground Helen Zone from surface.

�By providing a preliminary indication of the resource and its economic potential, this study will be an important next step toward the advancement of the Helen Zone�, said Chad Williams, CEO, President and Director. �Victoria has drilled 15 holes from surface into the deposit � of which 4 holes were drilled outside the mineralized envelope or were abandoned.  As such, we still have a relatively small amount of information about the Helen Zone�s true potential.  There is little doubt that the next phase of exploration will include a decline from surface and underground diamond drilling to establish the full vertical extent of the resource and to accelerate the exploration of other nearby targets in a more efficient manner than drilling from surface.�

Victoria has spent over US$10 million at Cove to date, completing the work commitments to earn a 100% interest in the Cove project, such interest being subject to (i) a back-in right in favor of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) (�Newmont�) for a 51% interest in exchange for a contribution to the property by Newmont equal to 2.5 times the amount spent on the property by Victoria up to the time of the back-in decision, or (ii) a US$1.5 million cash payment to Newmont and a maximum aggregate royalty of up to 5% depending on the prevailing gold price (including previous royalties). The back-in or cash payment decision by Newmont is required to be made within 90 days following the delivery by Victoria of a positive feasibility study based on a minimum of 500,000 ounces of gold.< /P>

Santa Fe Gold Exploration Project
Drilling of BH-3 at the Santa Fe project is progressing well.  This is the third hole of Victoria�s first exploration campaign on this property. At the end of last week, BH-3 was at a depth of about 380 meters, or about half of its targeted depth. A plan view of the location of this hole can be seen at
www.vitgoldcorp.com. BH-3 is designed to test for gold mineralization at depth and to the east of the mineralization intersected by BH-2 (309 meters grading 2.25 g/t gold reported on October 22, 2009).  BH-3 is targeting postulated higher-grade zones of gold mineralization where the frequency of post mineral faulting is expected to be less than intersected in BH-2.

Victoria has the right to earn from Homestake Mining Company of California an indirect subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX-TSX, ABX-NYSE) up to a 70% interest in the Santa Fe gold property, which is comprised of 24 patented claims and 226 unpatented claims, by incurring exploration expenses in an aggregate amount of at least US$6.5 million over a six year period. Victoria has also staked 42 unpatented claims within the Santa Fe project area of interest.

Summit Gold Exploration Project
Victoria recently completed the 2009 exploration drilling program at the Summit property.  This was the Company�s first ever drill campaign on this property.  Three diamond drill holes totaling 1279 meters were drilled beneath gold mineralization reported by previous operators.  The purpose of the program was to find gold-bearing structural intersections or feeder zones.  Narrow zones of gold mineralization were intersected in diamond drill holes PS-1 and PS-2, as shown in the Table 1 below.  Hole PS-3 was drilled from the bottom of the reclaimed open pit but did not encounter gold grades similar to those reported by previous operators. The true width of these mineralized zones is unknown.

Drilling at Summit was carried out using HQ and NQ-sized core with assays taken mostly at 1.5 m intervals.  The assays were prepared, processed and assayed by Inspectorate in Reno, NV.  The cut-off grade for exploration purposes used by Victoria at Summit is 300 ppb.  Assaying was done by fire assay with an atomic absorption (�AA�) finish, and samples with AA results greater than 3,000 ppb were re-run by fire assay with gravimetric finish.  Standards, blanks, and duplicate assays were also run for QA-QC.
