Tonogold Resources, Inc. Announces Release of Final Report on Nyac Geochemical Data

LA JOLLA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2005 -- Tonogold Resources, Inc. (OTC: TNGL) announces the release of the Final Report on Nyac Geochemical Data on a portion of the 57,600 acre Nyac Gold Prospect located in southwest Alaska at the western end of the Alaska-Yukon Tintina Gold Belt. The report can be downloaded on our webpage at

The Final Report on Nyac contains a summary of the 2005 surface sampling program as well as recommendations for the 2006 exploration season.

Tonogold's 2005 Nyac sampling and exploration program was a systematic grid sampling of soils in the center of the district. Based at Calista's Nyac Camp, the Tonogold sampling teams took over 3,000 soil and 200 rock samples within approximately six square miles. The assay results revealed six gold prospects with large, disseminated gold potential. Five of these prospects; Bonanza Ridge, Rocky Ridge, Shamrock, Pipe and Wallace are located within a contiguous area of five square miles in the central district. The sixth prospect, Saddle Mountain, covers an area of about one square mile to the northeast.

All six prospects identified in 2005 had numerous assays over 0.5 grams /ton (g/t) gold and multiple returns over 1.0 g/t gold. Highest soil assay reported was 4.21 g/t gold. Highest rock value is 15.1 g/t gold.

Nyac's geometry, geology, and geochemistry are comparable to the intrusive-hosted Fort Knox disseminated gold deposit, although Nyac has not been eroded to the same level as Fort Knox. The aggregate geographic area of Tonogold's six prospects is several times larger than the Fort Knox deposit.

Tonogold Resources, Inc. is a minerals exploration company headquartered in La Jolla, California with gold and silver properties in Alaska and Nevada. Tonogold Resources is the parent company of Mesa Uranium, Inc. For more information on the Company visit their website
