Deep Drilling Commences on Abitibi East Property

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - Golden Chalice Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GCR) (PINKSHEETS: GCRIF) is pleased to announce the commencement of deep drilling on the Abitibi East Property located approximately 65 km east of Xstrata's zinc processing metallurgical facility in Timmins, Ontario.

The Company's July 17, 2007 news release describes in detail the large zinc zone intersected in previous drilling, the need to drill below the zinc discovery at deeper levels and the similar geological environment to the large Kidd Creek Mine 75 km. to the west. Kidd Creek Mine has produced over 117,547,000 tonnes of ore averaging 2.2% copper (Cu), 7.25% zinc (Zn), 0.28% lead (Pb) and 147.43 g/t silver (Ag).

Dr. George Hudak, an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and researcher on the relationships between volcanology, hydrothermal alteration and VMS deposits, has assisted Company geologists in the recognition of lithologies and alteration at the Abitibi East Property. Dr. Hudak is currently utilizing lithogeochemistry (rock chemistry) and petrographic studies (microscope analysis of rock) to help vector (target) in on felsic domes and potential synvolcanic fault zones which are often associated with VMS deposits.

The increase in size and strength of the zinc mineralized zone at depth combined with the recognition of debris flows with felsic lava fragments and sulphidic clasts, graphitic and cherty exhalites, moderate to strong silicification and sericitization, stringer Zn, Cu and Pb mineralization, and replacement style mineralization in the drilling to date, support the potential for a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit on the Abitibi East Property.

A Summary of Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Deposit Environments and how they relate to the Abitibi East exploration is available on Golden Chalice Resources' web site

Further drilling is planned to target the downdip and strike extent of this newly discovered mineralization. Peter Caldbick, P.Geo., is the qualified person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 and has read and approved this news release.
