White Knight Board of Directors Announces Filing and Mailing of Directors' Circular in Respect of U.S. Gold Offer

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 16, 2006) - White Knight Resources Ltd. ("White Knight") (TSX VENTURE:WKR) announces that it has filed its Directors' Circular in response to the offer and take-over bid circular of U.S. Gold Corporation, US Gold Holdings Corporation and US Gold Canadian Acquisition Corporation for all of the outstanding common shares of White Knight. The Directors' Circular is being mailed today to holders of White Knight's issued and outstanding common shares.

At the present time, the Board of Directors makes no recommendation to shareholders regarding the Offer in the Directors' Circular. While the Board is generally supportive of the business proposition of consolidating the land positions within the Cortez Trend, aggressively pursuing exploration programs, the enhanced trading liquidity and the stronger cash position for White Knight, based on advice from its financial and legal advisors, the Board is reserving judgment until issues are resolved with respect to the timing of the Offer, particularly with respect to the timing of receiving appropriate clearances from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for the purpose of U.S. Gold proceeding with the Offer in a timely manner, and satisfactory due diligence on U.S. Gold can be completed.

In the interim, the Board intends to continue its dialogue with U.S. Gold with respect to the status of the conditions to the Offer and to continue to consider the Offer in light of their fiduciary duties. The Board expects to communicate its recommendation as soon as practicable once the timing of certain conditions of the Offer has been clarified.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

John M. Leask, P.Eng., Chairman of the Board
