Dutch Gold Resources to Open Texas Vein

Updates Filing Status to Become Fully Reporting With the SEC

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 3, 2008) - Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI) (the "Company"), a developer and operator of proven gold mines and a regional mill in North America, today announced it has completed preliminary studies to reopen the Texas Vein of its Benton Mine in Oregon.

Dan Hollis, Chief Executive Officer of Dutch Gold Resources, stated, "Our geology staff and our mining engineers spent part of the fourth quarter of 2007 analyzing the viability of reopening this previously productive vein. Their reports indicate that ore chutes are intact and that we could begin mining within three months, with some additional roadwork. This part of the Benton system has not been studied since World War II and was not part of our original plans for the next couple years. Nevertheless, following this favorable engineering review, we decided to accelerate our timetable and are excited to commence production from this vein and expect to begin recognizing incremental revenues in early 2008."

Available records indicate the Texas Vein yielded high grade ore, which historically ranged from .285oz/ton to .85 oz/ton. Internal estimates, as well historical data, indicate that there are approximately 17,500 tons of ore available in the current structure.

In other news, the Company also announced it had filed all of its Quarterly and Annual Reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission through the period ending June 30, 2006 and intends to file both its Form 10-QSB for the period ending September 30, 2006 and its Form 10-KSB for the period ending December 31, 2006 in the next several weeks.
