Gateway Gold Corp.: Drilling Resumes at Dorsey Creek

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 5, 2005) - Gateway Gold
Corp. (the "Company") (TSX:GTQ) reports that the diamond drilling
program on the Dorsey Creek property has resumed after the Christmas
break. Two diamond drill rigs are currently operating to complete the
planned drill program by the end of January. Six holes have been planned
of which two holes were completed, but not assayed, prior to Christmas;
a third hole was started before Christmas but not completed. Drill
results will be announced after all assays are available.

The Dorsey Creek target is located about 2.5 kilometres southeast of the
Company's Big Springs gold project. Geological mapping and geochemical
sampling suggest that there was a major hydrothermal event active at
Dorsey Creek. The target is a high-grade, Carlin style gold deposit.

The Company utilizes a quality control program designed by Dr. Giles
Peatfield, P. Eng. to ensure best practice in sampling and analysis of
drill core and reverse circulation drilling samples. Dr. Peatfield, a
qualified person under NI 43-101, reviews all assay results prior to
public release. Sample preparation and analyses are performed by ALS
Chemex Labs.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD,

Michael D. McInnis, President

Dr. Giles Peatfield, P. Eng. is an Independent Qualified Person for GTQ
and has reviewed and approved the contents of this release.
