U.S. Gold Issues Status Report on Proposed Tender Offers

DENVER, COLORADO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 18, 2007) - U.S. GOLD CORPORATION (TSX:UXG)(AMEX:UXG) announced today an update on its proposed consolidation of the Cortez Trend in Nevada.

U.S. Gold anticipates being able to commence the formal tender offers for each of Nevada Pacific Gold Ltd., Tone Resources Limited and White Knight Resources Ltd. by mid-February 2007, subject to the satisfaction of certain regulatory requirements. U.S. Gold may re-evaluate its intentions to proceed with the proposed offers for one or more of those companies at any time.

U.S. Gold has decided not to pursue its proposed offer for Coral Gold Resources Ltd. at this time in view of certain regulatory requirements that would need to be satisfied by Coral Gold Resources prior to the commencement by U.S. Gold of a formal tender offer. U.S. Gold was concerned that the possible undue delay and expense arising from the satisfaction of those regulatory requirements could possibly jeopardize the proposed offers for the other three companies. In the future, U.S. Gold may re-evaluate its intention to acquire Coral Gold Resources.
