Oro Gold Commences Drilling at Trinidad

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) - Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Trinidad property, located in Sinaloa, Mexico. An initial 2,000 metre drill program is being conducted to validate and build upon a non-NI 43-101 compliant historic resource.

The diamond drill program currently underway is the first of a multi-phase program, designed to test targets that will expand the historic resource and to verify historic assay data obtained from the prior operator. A second diamond drill rig has been secured and should be on site in the near term.

Oro Gold is a gold exploration company with 13 projects located in Mexico and Panama, with five of the projects optioned to joint venture partners. The Trinidad property continues to be the company's top priority project, and the main focus of exploration and resource definition efforts. Ongoing generative activity and a joint venture strategy will continue to be a fundamental part of Oro Gold's growth.
