U.S. Gold Terminates Offer for White Knight Resources Ltd., Intends to Recommence

DENVER, COLORADO--(CCNMatthews - June 5, 2006) - U.S. Gold Corporation (OTCBB:USGL) announced today that, in view of certain regulatory requirements, it has terminated its offer to acquire all of the common shares of White Knight Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WKR). U.S. Gold intends to recommence its offer for White Knight and to commence offers for Nevada Pacific Gold Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NPG), Coral Gold Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CGR), and Tone Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TNS) by mailing new offer documents as soon as regulatory requirements can be satisfied, including the receipt of necessary information from each of the target companies.

The termination of the White Knight offer was necessitated by an interpretation of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") that, pursuant to applicable securities regulatory requirements, U.S. Gold was required to have gone effective with a registration statement prior to launching the formal tender offer. In addition, the registration statement must have contained the consents of the auditors and certain additional financial statement information of each of White Knight, Nevada Pacific, Coral Gold Resources and Tone Resources Ltd., which, to date, each of the companies has failed to deliver. U.S. Gold commenced the offer for White Knight with the good faith belief that all applicable requirements had been met. U.S. Gold is also required to obtain formal financial valuations from Nevada Pacific and Coral Gold before it can commence an offer for Nevada Pacific and Coral Gold, which have yet to be completed by the respective companies. Despite what it believes have been its best efforts, U.S. Gold has to date been unable to obtain this necessary information.

"I am extremely disappointed with the delays that we have encountered and the lack of cooperation that we have received from the other companies in this effort," stated Rob McEwen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Gold. "We have diligently sought to obtain from each of these companies the necessary information to complete the required regulatory filings but their failure or inability to respond in a timely manner has worked to the disadvantage of our respective shareholders as we try to consolidate the Cortez trend and create Nevada's premier exploration company."

U.S. Gold may reevaluate its intention to acquire any or all of these companies if it is not able to obtain on a timely basis the required auditors' consents and, in the case of Nevada Pacific and Coral Gold, formal valuations of each of those companies in accordance with applicable securities regulatory requirements.

In relation to the White Knight offer, any common shares already tendered to the formal offer will be promptly returned to the tendering shareholders and will need to be retendered in accordance with the new offer materials if such shareholders desire to tender their shares in that offer.
