Yukon Gold Completes VTEM Exploration Program on Mt. Hinton Silver-Gold Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2007) - Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. ("Yukon Gold"), (TSX:YK)(OTCBB:YGDC)(FRANKFURT:W8Y) announced today that the Company has completed two airborne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical surveys using the services of Geotech Ltd. of Aurora, Ontario. The VTEM survey is the leading airborne geophysical system in use today and was flown over the Company's Mt. Hinton gold and silver property and the nearby Gram Property located in the Tombstone Gold Belt of the Yukon Territory. The VTEM technology has documented capabilities to detect highly conductive rock bodies to depths of up to 800 meters (2500 feet).

These are the first airborne geophysical survey flown over the properties in the search for electromagnetic and magnetic anomalies. The Mt. Hinton claims are underlain by the Keno Hill Quartzites and related schists with known silver/gold vein mineralization associated with massive galena and tetrahedrite. The Mt. Hinton survey covered 97.0 km2 and 965 line kilometres were flown at a nominal 100 metre flight line spacing. The survey was also flown without any gaps over Mt. Hinton itself. The Gram Property is underlain by the Devonian to Mississippian, Earn Group meta-volcanic and meta-sedimentary rocks which are highly prospective for 'Massive Sulphide' mineralization. The Gram survey covered 28.5km2 and 327 line kilometres were flown at a nominal 100 metre flight line spacing. Results from the VTEM program will be published as they are made available and reviewed by Yukon Gold's management team.

Yukon Gold also announces the completion of their exploration programs at Mt. Hinton, the Gram Property and at the Marg Deposit. This year's exploration at Mt. Hinton concentrated on trenching to expose veins along strike and some diamond drilling of high grade veins on the north face of Mt. Hinton. Samples have been submitted for assay and the results will be released as soon as they are available. The work on the Gram claims this past season was primarily the VTEM survey, combined with limited prospecting and some soil geochemical traverses. Exploration at the Marg deposit this past season was entirely diamond drilling. A total of 3,300 metres were drilled in the season and samples from the sulphide bearing intervals have been submitted to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia for analysis. Assay results will be released as soon as they are received and verified.

The Qualified Person who prepared this press release is Stew Fumerton, Ph.D., P. Geo. VP Exploration for Yukon Gold.
