Recently Completed NI 43-101 Increases Resources by up to 49% at Yukon Gold’s Zinc-Copper-Lead Deposit in the Yukon


Toronto, Canada, August 7, 2007, Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. (“Yukon Gold”), (TSX: YK,
OTCBB: YGDC) is pleased to announce today that the Company is in receipt of an updated National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report on the Company’s 100% owned Marg Property, a polymetallic deposit, located in the Yukon Territory, Canada.


The report was provided to Yukon Gold by Archer Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited & Giroux Consultants Ltd (Archer Cathro/Giroux), both of Vancouver, BC.  The report has been filed with SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and the report can also be found in its entirety on Yukon Gold’s corporate website, (www.yukongoldcorp.com). Significant results from this report and Yukon Gold’s comments are as follows:


Mineral Resource Estimate

A 3-Dimensional geologic solids model was produced by Archer Cathro from level plans, longitudinal and cross sections.  A total of 16 individual solids were formed within 11 main mineralized lenses.  Geologic continuity has been established through diamond drilling with the mineralized lenses interpreted from reasonably spaced drill fences.  The Archer Cathro/Giroux resource estimates at 0.5% and 1.00% copper cut-offs are compared to the previous estimate in a 43-101 compliant report by Peter Holbek in March 2005.

Yukon Gold is pleased and encouraged with the 18% to 49% increase in overall resource tonnage estimated at similar to higher average grades, depending on the cut-off applied. The Archer Cathro/Giroux report classified most of the resource as ‘Inferred’ compared to Holbek’s report which classified most of the resource as ‘Indicated’. Yukon Gold was surprised with this reversal in classification since an additional 13 diamond drill holes, mostly infill holes which were successful in intersecting the mineralized zones, were drilled since the Holbek report. Archer Cathro/Giroux has offered no explanation for this change in classification in their report. Yukon Gold is continuing to review this report and may consider a peer review or an audit performed on the estimate by another Qualified Person.


Further highlights, conclusions and recommendations from the report are summarized as follows;


·         The most important feature of this deposit type from an exploration point of view is their tendency to occur in clusters. Larger VMS camps can have up to 25 discrete occurrences.


·         The Marg deposit is significantly larger and higher grade than the global averages for mineral occurrences of this type. The massive sulphide mineralization remains open to resource expansion down plunge to the east, down dip to the south and along strike to the west in untested areas of anomalous soil geochemical response.


·         Exploration outside the immediate area of the Marg deposit is only at a preliminary stage, and the overall chance of expanding the Marg deposit resource and of discovering additional VMS occurrences on the property is good.


·         The Marg deposit itself is open to expansion by diamond drilling to test areas down the dip and along strike to the east and west of the known resource.


·         Metallurgical testing is recommended to build on preliminary work that was previously carried out.


·         The Jane Zone is the most prospective of four exploration targets presently known on the Marg property outside the area of the Marg deposit itself. Previous exploration has identified a 600 m long anomalous zone that will require testing.


·         Three other areas of anomalous geochemical response are present on the property and they require additional geochemical sampling and geological mapping before they are tested with diamond drilling. In addition, final data reduction of a 2006 property wide VTEM airborne geophysical survey is expected to be completed before the 2007 field season. Any electromagnetic conductors identified by this work should be investigated with geological mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling to evaluate the potential for VMS massive sulphide mineralization.
