Threegold Resources Inc.: Significant Gold Grades Discovered, Up to 26.7 Grams Per Tonne at South Bay Project, Val-d'Or, Quebec (2010-11-22)

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC, CANADA, Nov. 22, 2010 (Marketwire) -- Threegold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:THG) is pleased to announce results from the surface channel sampling collected on the South Bay property, 40Km's east of Val-d'Or, Quebec . Significant gold values of up to 26.7 g/t were sampled and results confirm the potential of a high grade discovery in a prolific gold mining region of Canada.

Threegold management is highly enthusiastic with the initial results and has decided to mobilize a drill immediately to the project to verify the extension at depth and along strike of the surface discovery. The program will consist of a series of short holes aimed directly below the exposed mineralized zone. Surface magnetometric and Induced Polarization geophysical surveys will also be carried out to characterize the discovery area.

The company commenced its first work program on the South Bay property located some 40km due east of Val-d'Or, Quebec during the fall of 2010 to localize previous gold occurrences. Some historic trenches were localized cleared and stripped using a backhoe. The rocks exposed were felsic to intermediate intrusives exhibiting significant silicification and sericitation and were cut by folded quartz veins and veinlets carrying substantial pyrite mineralization. The surface was sampled by cutting channels at various intervals and collecting the material. Two (2) further sectors were stripped, channelled and sampled on South Bay and results for these are pending. These two additional sectors are believed to be part of the historical occurrences reported on the project but never properly located.

The fifty (50) channel samples were sent to Actlabs (Activation Laboratories Ltd) in Ste-Germaine-de-Boule for assaying using conventional Fire Assay with Atomic Absorption finish on a 30g pulverized split portion. Results exceeding 3000 ppm were reassayed with a gravimetric finish. Exploration and sampling of the project was carried out under the direct supervision of Robert Tremblay, P.Geo. Samples were delivered directly to the laboratory for treatment.
