ValGold Files Technical Report on the Fish Creek PL, Matthews Ridge Area, North West District Guyana

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 3, 2008) - ValGold Resources Ltd. ("ValGold") (TSX VENTURE:VAL)(FRANKFURT:VR2) is pleased to announce the completion of the NI 43-101 technical report on the Fish Creek Prospecting License ("the Property"), written by Henry M. Meixner, P. Geo.

The Property consists of a single Prospecting License ("PL") covering an area of about 14,765 acres or 5975 hectares located approximately 235 kilometres west of Georgetown. The area was explored between 1994 and 1997 by Golden Star Resources Ltd. Golden Star carried out a comprehensive and well-integrated exploration program including a variety of ground work and airborne geophysical surveys. This work delineated an 8 km x 4 km area of favorable gold-prospective greenstone amphibolite units contained within a major fold structure that is truncated by a thrust fault and that exhibits extensive and widespread geochemical gold anomalous areas that have been inadequately tested by drilling and trenching.

The geology of the Fish Creek area consists of lower Proterozoic Barama Group of metamorphosed volcanic, sedimentary and intrusive rocks. The Barama Group is highly prospective for shear-hosted as well as for intrusive-related gold deposits like those found elsewhere throughout similar greenstone strata in the Guiana Shield in Guyana at Omai, Tassawini, Million Mountain and Toroparu and in Venezuela at Las Cristinas and Brisas. The gold-favorable geology of Fish Creek comprises two major greenstone units that make up a southeasterly plunging fold which is truncated by a thrust along its southern flank. Elevated gold values are exhibited in soils and in saprolite along the thrust structure over 6 kilometer strike length within the Property.

Trenching and limited shallow drilling by Golden Star at selected localities identified sporadic and discontinuous intervals of low-sulphide gold mineralization within the greenstones that do not explain the intensive and widespread occurrence of gold anomalies throughout the license area. A deeper source of sub-surface gold mineralization is therefore indicated under at least two localities that have not been adequately explored by the past drilling.

The southern-central zone of anomalous gold-in-soils and saprolite is deemed to be a high priority target for further exploration for shear-hosted greenstone gold mineralization related to brittle fracturing within the thrust zone throughout its entire 6 km length. The northern-central geochemical gold anomalous area that measures 3km x 2km is also prospective for intrusive-related and greenstone-hosted gold mineralization at an intrusive center at the crest of the fold where the highest geochemical gold anomalies occur.

In the first part of 2008, an in-depth review of all the historical work will be done with the purpose of defining priority areas for follow-up work including trenching and where warranted drilling. The technical report filed on the Property recommends an initial program budget of approximately $860,000 and ValGold intends to complete much of this work during the next 12 to 16 months.

For further details on the Property, the NI 43-101 report will be filed on

Mr. Tom Pollock, P.Geo., ValGold's Vice-President, Exploration, is the Qualified Person for the project, and is responsible for all of the technical reporting in compliance with NI 43-101. Mr. Pollock has instituted and is responsible for ValGold's program of Quality Control and Assurance ("QC/QA"), using assay control samples and duplicates.
