Goldstake: Nickel/Copper NI 43-101 Report Completed

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 23, 2006) - Goldstake Explorations Inc. (TSX:GXP) is pleased to provide highlights of the NI 43-101 report , incorporating both recent (2003 to 2005) and historic (1972 to 1975) exploration results, on its 50% owned Prospect "D" and "DA", Nickel and Copper deposit, in the Northern Territory, Australia, prepared by Dr. Derek McBride, P.Eng., and filed on May 19, 2006 on SEDAR and on the Company website:

Prospect "D"

Drilling in the 1970's on Prospect "D", defined Nickel and Copper
mineralization over a 2 kilometre strike length with significant
diamond drill intersections of:
4.65% nickel (Ni) and 1.4% copper (Cu) over 3 feet.
1.95% Ni and 1.23% Cu over 8 feet.
0.48% Ni and 1.48% Cu over 25 feet.
0.42% Ni, 1.30% Cu, 5.8 gt. Gold, 215 gt. Silver over 16.9 feet.
(this was the only hole which recorded gold and silver).

As a result of this drilling, a pre NI 43-101 (historical) resource
was assessed at;
1.53 million tons at 0.25% Ni, 0.62% Cu over an average width of
28 feet in sulphides plus,
1.63 million tons at 0.15% Ni, 0.51% Cu over an average width of
30 feet in oxides

Prospect "DA"

Prospect "DA" has significant historic (Circa 1972) percussion drill
results and the potential for an open cut resource.
Vertical percussion drill hole results include;
5.77% cu, 0.21% ni - surface to 54 feet.
3.43% cu, 0.91% ni " 96 "
2.44% cu, 0.41% ni " 108 "
3.32% cu, 0.11% ni " 96 " (includes 23% cu, 0.21% ni
over 6 feet).

The true width of this mineralization is approximately 9 metres.

Exploration and Development

A first phase drilling program of 2000 metres for "project evaluation", which is expected to cost $600,000 will begin immediately after completion of the drilling on the Home Of Bullion (HOB) copper mine, which will start on June 14, 2006.

The Home Of Bullion mine is 25 kilometres South of Prospect "D". It is on the same " Mineralized Corridor "as Prospect D. It contains Copper, Silver, Lead and Zinc, whereas, Prospect D contains Nickel, Copper, Gold and Silver.

Phase two will follow up with a resource definition program . It is budgeted to cost $2.2 million.

The deposit has been classified as a Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposit associated with ultramafic and mafic rocks.

Recent drilling and geophysical exploration (2003 to 2005) has shown that this project has significant copper-nickel resources which remain open at depth and along strike.

Additional information with respect to Prospect "D" and "DA" is contained in the NI 43-101 report by Dr. Derek McBride, P.Eng. A copy of this report can be accessed on SEDAR or Goldstake web site
