Majestic Gold Corp.: Option Agreement With Central China Goldfields plc

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 5, 2007) - On November 28, 2006 Majestic Gold Corp. ("Majestic") (TSX VENTURE:MJS) announced that it had entered into an agreement with Central China Goldfields plc. ("CCG") pursuant to which CCG was granted an option (the "Option") to acquire a 50% interest in Majestic China Mining Corp. ("MCMC"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Majestic. To maintain its Option, CCG was required to advance CAD$1.5 million on or before November 30, 2006 (the "First Payment") and CAD$1.5 million on or before December 31, 2006 (the "Second Payment"). CCG advanced the First Payment but did not advance the Second Payment. Consequently, the Option has lapsed.

Majestic will seek other financing options including the possible re-negotiation of its agreement with CCG to further develop its two advanced-stage exploration properties in China, Song Jiaguo (Shandong Province) and Sawayaerdun (Xinjiang Province), both of which have initial NI 43-101 resource estimates completed.
