StrataGold and Newmont Commence Drilling on Barama JV, Guyana

Vancouver, Canada, November 29 (ots/PRNewswire)

Corporation (SGV-TSX) is pleased to announce the commencement  of a
2000 metre (m) diamond drilling (DD) program at Monosse, Guyana.
Monosse  is subject to a joint venture agreement (the "Agreement" or
'Barama JV')  (see press release dated October 3, 2005) with Newmont
Overseas Exploration  Limited, a subsidiary of U.S.-based Newmont
Mining Corporation (NYSE & ASX:  NEM; TSX: NMC), in respect to
StrataGold's Barama Reconnaissance Permit  ("BRP") in Guyana (see
press release dated July 20, 2005).
The Agreement provides for the exploration of properties within
the  BRP, which covers over 4,500 square kilometres (km) of favorable
geology in  NW Guyana, but excludes StrataGold's wholly owned
Tassawini and Anaturi  properties which are located within the BRP.
Monosse is comprised of 34 contiguous medium scale permits, 1
Prospecting License (PL's) and 22 small-scale mining permits covering
172  square km's located within the BRP and approximately 45 km west
of  Tassawini. During the period from July to mid-November,
StrataGold  constructed a forty person camp and established a
detailed grid over  historical drill and trench sites in preparation
for a combined 2,000 m  diamond drilling program as well as a ground
geophysics induced  polarization (IP) survey.
Monosse is an advanced gold exploration project, with an estimated
US  $1.5 million dollars in historical exploration work completed
during the  period from 1994 to 1999. Regional airborne magnetometer
and stream  sediment geochemistry surveys were completed over the
property by the BHP  World Discovery Group. Detailed stream and soil
geochemistry surveys,  trenching and a 3,000 m DD program were
completed by Toscana Resources Ltd.  and Champion Resources Ltd.
during the same period.
Monosse Historical Trenching Program
Trenching was widely distributed over an area of approximately 250
m  by 800 m. The general trend of the gold mineralization strikes
northwest  while the dip is steep to subvertical towards the
southwest. The  mineralization identified in the trenches at Monosse
are hosted in Birimian  metasediments intercalated with mafic
volcanics. The gold mineralization is  structurally controlled by a
major northwest trending deformation corridor  which cross-cut and
deformed a large, open, gently plunging east-northeast  trending

Monosse Historical DD Program
Toscana and Champion obtained significant gold results in 22 of 23
DD  holes, with these holes widely spaced over an area of 200 m by
650 m. The  true thickness of individual gold zones is unknown at
this time. It was  noted that there was a direct correlation between
sulphide content and gold  grade, with pyrite rich zones associated
with quartz veinlets returning  significant gold grades. The ground
geophysics IP survey will include the  entire historical area drilled
by Toscana in order to identify large  potential sulphide deposits.
The initial 2006 2,000 m DD program will  commence with a series of
due diligence holes that will twin some of these  historical holes,
followed by a systematic drill program which will include  testing
potential new IP targets.

Quality Control and Assurance
Toscana and Champion's quality control and quality assurance
program  was provided by an independent consultant for the duration
of the project,  through the utilization of duplicates and control
samples on gold samples,  submitted to Loring Laboratories Guyana
Ltd. Fire assays were conducted  along with atomic absorption
analysis. Samples returning greater than 1.0 g  /t gold were
subjected to a second fire assay with a gravimetric finish.  Loring
Lab also conducted numerous repeat check analyses. Additional
duplicate, repeat and standard assays for conducted for accuracy and
precision studies. Check assays were conducted by Chemex Laboratories
Ltd.  in North Vancouver. The 1997 drilling results at Monosse are
considered to  be of historical interest only to StrataGold. The
technical information in  this news release has been prepared in
accordance with Canadian regulatory  requirements set out in National
