Second Core Drill Added, Bringing Total to Three Rigs, to Expedite San Miguel Project Expansion

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - April 25, 2008) - Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) is pleased to announce that a second core drill rig has been added at its San Miguel project in Mexico bringing the total number of drill rigs to three at the project. This new rig, supplied by Layne drilling, will be used to expand the resource at 'Clavo 99' both along strike and at depth.

This new rig will expedite the current 50,000 meter drill program and expand the 'Clavo 99' resource. In addition, the assay lead times have been reduced drastically due to the expansion of the ALS Chemex facilities in Vancouver.

The San Miguel project is a joint venture between Tara Gold Resources Corp. (30%) and Paramount Gold Mining Corp. (70%). Paramount is the operator of the exploration program and provided this update.
