Tara Gold Acquires High Grade Zinc, Lead Silver Property in Mexico

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 16, 2006 -- Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Don Ramon and Lourdes mineral concessions, hereafter referred to as Don Ramon and Lourdes Groupings, located 20 km ESE of Choix, Sinaloa State, Mexico.

The Don Ramon and Lourdes Groupings will be placed into Tara Minerals Corp., Tara Gold's 100% owned subsidiary. Don Ramon and Lourdes Groupings is comprised of 309 hectares and lies within the same general area as the Pilar De Mocoribo Groupings, an extensive area of hydrothermal alteration that hosts numerous base and precious metal occurrences along the western part of the Northern Sierra Madre Gold Belt. The property lies 15 km SW of the historically prolific La Reforma Pb-Zn-Ag District that is now the focus of concerted exploration by Peñoles.

Mr. Francis Biscan Jr., President of Tara Gold Resources, stated, "Because of the close proximity to Pilar De Mocoribo Groupings, we are now assessing several options to aggressively advance both projects simultaneously."

Tara Minerals Corp. has received preliminary information on the property including results from previous sampling programs in 1998-1999. The Company will conduct a follow-up sampling program and a more detailed property evaluation in late November. Preliminary evaluation indicates that the property lies within a larger area that hosts numerous and very-high grade Pb-Zn-Ag Carbonate (Limestone) Hosted Deposits.

Twenty six (26) samples were collected and analyzed. The results returned an average for all samples collected of 5.23% Pb, 16.74% Zn, and 492g Ag. At present spot metal prices, a tonne of ore has a gross value of $956/t. Complete assay results for all these samples were as follows:
