Guyana Goldfields Inc.: Description Of Rory's Knoll Mineralized Zone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 2, 2006) - Guyana Goldfields Inc. (TSX:GUY) is pleased to issue a clarifying description of the Rory's Knoll mineralized zone as we know it to date.

The zone has a pipe like general configuration closely related to a tonalite intrusive in metavolcanics country rock. The zone is dipping from vertical to 85 degrees NE with a 70 degree NW plunge. On horizontal sections, the zone assumes an irregular ellipsoidal shape with the long axis ranging approximately 200 to 250m and short axis of 125 to 200m depending on horizontal section. The zone has been explored down to a depth of 700m from surface by core diamond drilling. Mineralization continuity has been shown to exist to this depth.

Amongst other sections and plans, a longitudinal section of 10,750E (showing RKD-55, RKD-56, RKD-57) is available on the company's website at: Please note that the intercepts earlier reported for RKD-55, RKD-56 and RKD-57 are not true width. These intercepts represent successful probing of vertical continuity of mineralization at depth.
