Coral Gold Increases Resource Estimate by 110% to 2.3 Million Ounces Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2007) - Coral Gold Resources Ltd. ("Coral") (TSX VENTURE:CLH)(OTCBB:CLHRF)(BERLIN:GV8)(FRANKFURT:GV8) has received the updated resource estimate prepared by Beacon Hill Consultants (1988) Ltd. for the Robertson property located in Crescent Valley Nevada.

The estimate incorporates results from drilling programmes done by Coral since the last published resource estimate (April 25, 2006 - see Coral website -

The updated resource estimate report, under preparation by Beacon Hill, will be available within 45 days of the date of this news release and will be posted on SEDAR

The inferred resource, for all zones contained within the Robertson Project, is estimated to be 91.3 million tons grading 0.025 ozAu/ton for contained gold of 2.3 million ounces (82.8 million tonnes grading 0.87gAu/tonne) The following table summarizes the resource estimate at a 0.015 ozAu/ton (0.467 gAu/tonne) cut-off grade:

- Gold ounces were calculated on the basis of US$600/oz Au and 70% Au recovery.

- The 0.015 ozAu/ton cut-off grade utilized to report the resource was derived from a mining cost of US$1.02/ton, process cost of US$5.00/ton and waste cost of US$1.14/ton.

- The mineral resources in the table above were estimated using the CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves.

- The database comprised a total of 1,160 drill holes, 533,453 feet (162,638 metres) of drilling and 101,757 gold assays.

- The inferred resource covers 6 distinct and separate areas; Distal, 39A, Gold Pan, Porphyry, Altenburg Hill, Southern Area and then all remaining blocks outside these areas that warrant inclusion as an inferred resource. In addition, Gold Pan, Porphyry and Altenburg Hill were separated into oxide and sulphide zones for analysis and modeling.

- An interpreted mineralized envelope was modeled into a solid in MineSight 3DTM, with six area mineralized zones and then separated into oxide and sulphide zones.

- Block dimensions of 25 feet (7.6 m) North, 25 feet (7.6 m) East and 20 feet (6 m) vertically.

- Grade interpolation - 20 foot (6 m) composites.

- Composites greater than 0.075 ozAu/ton (2.33 gAu/tonne) limited in influence to 100 feet (30.5 m).

- Tonnage estimates are based on 200 bulk historic density measurements carried out by previous operators. These were assigned to each block by zone. The resources are categorized as inferred since the amount and distribution of bulk tonnage factor data is sparse.

Mr. Garth D. Kirkham, P.Geo., and Mr. Peter Stokes, P.Eng., of Beacon Hill Consultants (1988) Ltd. and Mr. Robert McCusker, Consultant Geologist and Project Manager are Qualified Persons in accordance with NI 43-101. Messrs Kirkham, Stokes and McCusker are independent of Coral as defined by NI 43-101.

Preparation plans for a major drilling program will be announced after the updated resources estimate report is available.

The Company was incorporated in 1981 and is exploring claims on Nevada's Battle Mountain-Cortez gold trend alongside the Cortez/Pipeline gold mine. Aggressive exploration, aimed at expanding this resource, continues.
