VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - ValGold Resources Ltd. (News - Market indicators)(FRANKFURT:VR2) ("ValGold") is pleased to announce assay results for six more Diamond drill holes totalling 1,427.3 meters ("m") of drill core from the ongoing 30,000m in-fill drill program on the Garrcon Deposit at ValGold's 100% owned Garrison Gold Property. Northern Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) ("Northern Gold") as project operator, is in the second year of an option agreement to earn an interest in the Garrison gold property from ValGold (see ValGold news release dated September 23, 2010).

Northern Gold reported in its news release dated March 31, 2011 that these new drilling results continue to intersect long intervals of mineralization supporting the development of a significant near surface mineral resource at the Garrcon Deposit. The results demonstrate both the continuity and consistency of the gold mineralization within the resource area. In addition, the step out drill holes appear to be expanding the mineralized footprint of the Garrcon.

Highlights of Drill Program

  • A total of 37 drill holes (8,153m) have been reported to date for the drill program that began May 2010
  • Drill results continue to support that the Garrcon Zone has the potential to host a bulk-tonnage gold deposit
  • Northern Gold is continuing to aggressively drill with two drill rigs focusing on systematic infill, definition and step out drilling

Highlights of Drill Results

The significant intersections for the six reported holes are listed in the table below.

  • GAR-10-43 with 293.0m grading 0.54 g/t Au within which is 5.0m of 4.95 g/t Au
  • GAR-10-44 with 292.5m grading 0.60 g/t Au with several intervals of greater than 3.0 g/t Au over lengths of 1.0m or greater
  • GAR-10-46 with 284.6m averaging an uncut grade of 1.62 g/t Au (0.38 g/t Au cut grade)
  • GAR-10-50 with 287.0m averaged an uncut grade of 0.47 g/t Au (0.36 g/t Au cut grade) within which a 1.0m interval assayed 64.86 g/t Au.

Table One contains all of the highlights for the six holes of this report.

The Garrison Gold Property

In July 2005, ValGold purchased a 100% interest in the Garrison Gold Property. The Property is located on the Golden Highway of NE Ontario and straddles the Porcupine-Destor Fault and the Munro Fault systems along the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt. The Property hosts several gold zones including the advanced stage Jonpol and Garrcon Deposits and the 903 gold mineralized area. Drilling has been carried out on these gold zones with the earliest work dating back to the 1930's. The Property has good infrastructure with producing gold mines and mills located in close proximity. The Jonpol gold deposit contains an indicated resource of 253,100 tonnes @ 7.77 g/t containing 63,000 ounces of gold and an inferred resource of 1.6 million tonnes @ 4.93 g/t Au containing 247,000 ounces of gold (see the NI 43-101 Technical Report reported in the ValGold news release dated May 21, 2008). The Garrcon Project has an initial indicated resource of 3.8 million tonnes @ 1.2 g/t containing 144,000 ounces of gold and an initial inferred resource of 18.5M tonnes @ 0.9 g/t containing 530,000 ounces of gold (see Valgold news release dated September 23, 2010). Northern Gold optioned the Property in September 2009 and has been working toward earning an 80% interest.

The technical aspects of this press release has been reviewed by Dr. A. Darryl Drummond, P.Eng., a Director of ValGold, who is the "Qualified Person" as defined by NI 43-101 for this project.
