Holes LC-031, LC-032 and LC-033 extend drilled mineralization approximately 400 feet along strike to the southwest in the main Long Canyon zone of mineralization. This zone remains open to the southwest for approximately 1,800 feet. Hole LC-037 extends the Jasperoid zone of mineralization found in hole LC-030 drilled earlier in 2006 by 200 feet along strike to the southwest. This zone is open to the northeast and southwest. Drilling in 2006 has confirmed and extended mineralization along approximately 3,000 feet of the Long Canyon target and documented that multiple zones of gold mineralization are present. NewWest is in the process of further permitting for drilling planned for mid 2007.

In addition, the Company wishes to announce that the definitive joint venture agreement between NewWest Gold USA, Inc. and the Company regarding Long Canyon has been signed. This agreement incorporates all terms as previously disclosed in press release NR06-06.

As reported by NewWest, all drill samples were collected following standard industry practice and were assayed by American Assay Laboratories, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada. Gold results were determined using standard fire assay techniques on a 30 gram sample with an atomic absorption finish. QA/QC included the insertion of numerous standards and blanks into the sample stream. Check assays and preliminary cyanide amenability testing is underway. All intercepts are reported as drilled; true widths have not been calculated. All data, as disclosed in this press release including sampling, analytical and test data have been reviewed by the Company's qualified person Mr. Ronald L. Parratt, M.Sc., and Certified Professional Geologist. Further details concerning the Long Canyon property are described in the Company's National Instrument 43-101 report filed on Sedar and are on the Company's website.
