Dutch Gold Resources Updates Recent Drilling Results

Utilizing New Hagby Drill, Company Reports Striking New Ore Bodies Including Multiple Vein Structures in Previous Unexplored Acreage

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI), a developer and operator of proven gold mines and a regional mill in North America, today announced that it has discovered new ore bodies in previously unexplored acreage in its Benton Mine. The Company reports that it has struck multiple vein structures to the South of existing production areas following the recent deployment of its new Hagby ONRAM 1000/3 Core Drill.

Dan Hollis, Chief Executive Officer of Dutch Gold Resources, stated, "Our geology staff and our drilling teams are doing an excellent job putting to use and leveraging the expanded capabilities of the Hagby equipment. We are now actively drilling previously unexplored acreage within our Benton Mine, both farther and faster than previously efforts. The first hole is on the D-S120E-0 azimuth and we have encountered several interesting mineralization zones for only being 190 feet horizontal. It appears that we have found multiple pay zones, right where the historical mining reports predicted, but the old timers were never able to reach."

Hollis further stated, "Assay cuts have been taken at multiple distances for analysis at independent labs. We will report on the results as soon as they are made available. We are encouraged, believing that we have made a new, meaningful find in a completely untapped area of our mine. Considering that none of our existing 43101-compliant estimated 279,000 ounces of reserves are associated with this area and those reserves were calculated on roughly only 10% of our total acreage having been explored, these drilling results may clearly bode well for future gold production and reserve growth. Since this new area was never included in any third party report, we believe this to be the first clear tangible indication of additional ore bodies not previously documented."
