StrataGold Intersects 41.4 Metres of 21.0 g/t Gold at Tassawini, Guyana

Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire)

StrataGold Corporation
(SGV-TSX) has received results of further diamond drilling and
exploration work completed at Tassawini in the Tassawini West Zone.
To date, 13 diamond drill holes totaling 2,098 metres have been
completed at Tassawini West and to date assays for the first three
holes have been received.
Hole SD003 returned 21.01 g/t gold (6.81 g/t gold cut) over 41.40
metres. Within this interval was a 27.96 metre section grading 30.10
g/t gold (9.07 g/t gold cut) from a depth of 25.54 metres to 53.50
metres. This much higher uncut average gold grade for hole SD003 was
heavily influenced by a 1.46 metre interval that averaged 437 g/t
gold from a depth of 25.54 metres to 27.00 metres. The cut grade for
hole SD003 (6.81 g/t gold over 41.40 metres) is considered to be much
more representative of the average grade over this section.
Hole SD002 intersected high grade saprolite averaging 4.73 g/t
gold (4.32 g/t gold cut) over 49 metres, from the drill collar to a
depth of 49.00 metres, with the top 10.14 metres averaging 11.01 g/t
gold (9.07 g/t gold cut). Drill hole SD002 was drilled 50 metres N70
degrees E of previously reported SD001. Drill hole SD001 intersected
1.84 g/t gold over 70.50 metres (see July 4th, 2005 news release).
Drill hole SD003 was located 25 metres N70 degrees E of hole SD001
(see map posted at
An upper cut-off grade of 34.30 g/t gold was applied to all
individual high grade gold assays that reported above 34.30 g/t.
Table 1 is a summary of diamond drill results for SD002 and SD003
using an upper cut-off grade of 34.30 g/t, while Table 2 is a summary
for the same holes without any assays cut. The true width of the
Tassawini West zone is estimated to be a minimum of 40 metres at this
time, since drill hole SD002 collared in gold mineralization.
Additional drilling results from drill holes SD004 to SD012 will
confirm the true width estimate.

Diamond Drilling Results
The diamond drill results to date from the Tassawini West Zone
demonstrate that above average grades of saprolite persists over
significant widths in the vicinity of the historical open pits.
Significant gold values were also obtained below the
saprolite-bedrock interface. In drill hole SD002 the
saprolite-bedrock interface was reached at a depth of 51 metres,
while in hole SD003 the saprolite-bedrock interface was reached at a
depth of 52 metres.
"The results to date for the property demonstrate the excellent
exploration potential for StrataGold's 100% owned property at
Tassawini," commented Bill Yeomans, P.Geo. General Manager
Exploration - South America for StrataGold. "Results from our ongoing
RC drilling program immediately south of the Tassawini East and West
open pits have extended the known strike length of this
mineralization by an additional 200 metres to the southwest of where
we are presently diamond drilling. RC drilling has successfully
extended the strike length of our new discovery at Black Ridge to 600
metres, and this favorable exploration target will also be subject to
diamond drilling with the arrival of a third drill rig on the
property in the near future." The second diamond drill rig is
presently being mobilized to the property to accelerate the C$4.1
million 2005 work program.
Geology and Mineralization
Over the past 25 years, the property has been subject to extensive
exploration (US$11.5 million) by indicating significant gold
mineralization is hosted by sheared and mylonitic, predominantly
fine-grained turbidites and manganiferous phyllites, with minor
intercalated pebbly sandstones and pyroclastic rocks. This geological
environment suggests the region may have shared its origins with the
Birrimian metasedimentary terrains of West Africa, where some of the
world's richest gold deposits have been discovered. Thin section work
on diamond drill hole SD001 has identified the gold bearing host rock
as being manganiferous gondite, a favorable host rock for economic
deposits in Ghana, West Africa.
Quality Control and Assurance
A rigorous Quality Control and Assurance program (QC/QA) is in
place, using control samples and duplicates, as well as Chain of
Custody (COC) protocols, under the supervision of Bill Yeomans,
P.Geo. Tamperproof sample bags with zip lock tags are being utilized
for all of the drill samples which are freighted by air in sealed
containers to ALS Chemex in Ontario. ALS Chemex is a recognized as an
ISO 9000 registered laboratory.
The control samples and duplicate assay results received for the
drilling program demonstrated to StrataGold that the results are
considered reliable. However, due to the rigorous nature of
StrataGold's QC/QA program, additional check assays will be conducted
and these results are pending. The technical information in this news
release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory
requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Bill Yeomans
is designated as the qualified person having reviewed this
