Journey Resources Corp.: Technical Report Filed on Musgrove Creek Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 24, 2006) - Journey Resources Corp. ("Journey" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:JNY) is pleased to announce that a technical report dated May 15, 2006 (the "Technical Report"), prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, regarding the Musgrove Creek Gold Project has been accepted for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange and is available at

Journey is currently earning a 100% interest in and to certain mineral claims comprising the Musgrove Creek Project. The Musgrove Creek Property consists of 77 contiguous, unpatented mining claims located in the Cobalt Mining District of Lemhi County, approximately 25 miles from Salmon, Idaho and covers nearly 1,500 acres of gentle to steep terrain that is road accessible.

The Musgrove Creek Gold Project is underlain by quartzite, siltites and phyllites of the Precambrian age Apple Creek Formation, situated along the Trans-Challis Fault System, a prominent northeast trending fault zone, which is host to numerous gold deposits.

The Musgrove deposit has been intersected over a strike length of 400 metres, a width of 110 metres and to a depth of 150 metres. The NI 43-101 Inferred Mineral Resource estimate at the Musgrove deposit is 8 million tonnes at 1.22g/t Au (0.036 oz/T) at a gold cut-off: 0.8 g/t (0.023 ounces per English ton). This is equivalent to 9,761 kg (313,822 oz) of gold at zero dilution (D. Makepeace, P.Eng, 2004). Previous exploration and the current resource evaluation indicate that the Musgrove deposit is open along strike in both directions and "down-the-dip".

To date there have been 32 holes drilled on the Musgrove deposit totaling 8,248 metres. The Musgrove deposit has an inferred mineral resource due to the low number of drill holes defining the deposit, the wide-spaced drill hole pattern and the lack of information for certain drill holes.

David K. Makepeace, M.Eng., P.Eng. and Michael A. McClave, P.G., Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101, co-authored the Technical Report. Mr. Makepeace was also responsible for the mineral resource estimate dated February 25, 2004, which is classified as an Inferred Mineral Resource, and incorporated into the Company's Technical Report. Mineral resources, which are not mineral reserves, have not demonstrated economic viability. Journey is not aware of any environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other issues which may materially affect the estimate of mineral resources.

Journey Resources Corp. is a mineral-exploration resource company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (Symbol : JNY). The Company is currently exploring three advanced exploration-stage projects; the Vianey Mine Silver Project, the Musgrove Gold Project and the Empire Mine Project. The Vianey Mine Project consists of concessions totaling 5,022 hectares in Guerrero State west of Mexico City, Mexico. The Musgrove Project is a prospect for a disseminated gold bulk-tonnage surface project similar to the Beartrack Mine, a nearby former gold producer. The Empire Mine Project is a poly-metallic skarn deposit containing copper, zinc, gold and silver ores, and is located in the Alder Creek Mining District in Custer County, Idaho.
