Yukon Gold Drills a 7.3m Intersection Grading 2.7% Cu, 4.4% Zn and 2.1% Pb Extending Marg Deposit

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2007) - Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. ("Yukon Gold"), (TSX:YK)(OTCBB:YGDC)(FRANKFURT:W8Y) is pleased to announce results of the 2007 diamond drill program at its 100% owned Marg Property, a copper/zinc/lead deposit, located in Yukon Territory, Canada.

With a skid mounted rig, 2,395 metres were drilled in 7 holes to test the extension of the known mineralization.

Highlights of the drill results are outlined below:

This drill program has continued to expand the limits of the Marg mineralization down dip and along strike, which is very encouraging. It is intended to incorporate these results into a revised 3D model to guide future work.

An additional 603m was drilled with a heli-portable rig to test outlying targets defined by soil geochemical sampling and the VTEM survey which was flown over the property last year. Two of these holes were lost in deep overburden. A third hole, offset from the Jane Zone, intersected a carbonate rich exhalative horizon. Such exhalative horizons are often associated with mineralized sulphide horizons and this is encouraging. The last hole intersected strata with thin lamellae of pyrite and pyrrhotite but with no copper or zinc values. There still are 17 other VTEM anomalies identified on the property that are associated with soil geochemical anomalies which have to be drill tested. A proposed drill program for 2008, will be the first time exploration targets outside of the immediate Marg Deposit are drill tested in a dedicated program since the original discovery. Success in such a program to locate satellite deposits, will significantly enhance the prospects of developing a mine at the Marg.

A QA/QC program was implemented on this project and consisted of blanks and certified standards being inserted into the sample stream. All samples were analysed by ALS Chemex in Vancouver.
