Cassidy Gold Corp.: RC and Soil Geochem Point to New
Zones

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2005) - Cassidy
Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CDY) -

RC Drill Program

As of March 27th, 10,674 metres of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling had
been completed in 258 holes. Most of the holes were drilled with a "kit
bit" and terminated at the top of the bedrock. Fences of holes have
tested the southern and northern extensions of the JJ and Sanu Filanan
Zones and are currently testing for parallel structures to the northeast
toward the Koekoe River. RC drilling is scheduled to begin on the
Sodyanfe Zone and the southern part of the X-Vein area, 2.5 kilometres
west and northwest of Sanu Filanan Zone in the next few weeks.

Results have now been received for samples to drill hole KRC115.
Previously released results include 29.13 g/t Au over 3.0 metres at the
bottom of KRC020 in an offset zone at the south end of the Sanu Filanan
Zone and 23.73 g/t Au over 14.0 metres in KRC027, stepping 250 metres
southeast along the JJ Vein trend. New results include 14.1 g/t Au over
2.0 metres in KRC086, 50 metres along strike of the JJ Vein trend.

Mineralized intersections in KRC091 to KRC101 occur in a fence of holes
drilled to the northeast between the midway points of the Sanu Filanan
and JJ Vein zones. Follow-up drilling will attempt to determine the
orientation and extent of this mineralization.

Mineralized intersections in KRC102 to 110 occur in a fence of holes
drilled to the northeast across the northwest limit of the JJ Vein
structure. In KRC106, mineralization occurs in a splay to the JJ Vein,
assaying 1.60 g/t Au over 6.0 metres. A high-grade zone in KRC109
assaying 10.07 g/t Au over 3.0 metres is the northwest continuation of
the JJ Vein structure.

Soil Geochemistry

A total of 399 soil samples were collected at a 100 and 200-metre
spacing in the area between X-Vein to the south and Mani to the north.
Sampling was also extended to the east and west of Mani. Thirty-one of
the samples assayed greater than 100 ppb, mainly along a westerly trend
from the original Mani anomaly. The anomaly now stretches 1.5 km to the
west-northwest by 1.2 km to the northeast.

Soil sampling is continuing on the Koekoe SW grid, adjoining west of
Sanu Filanan and south of Sodyanfe. To-date, assay results have been
received for 400 samples collected at a 25 and 50-metre spacing along
east-west lines at a 100-metre separation. Strong soil anomalies are
developing 0 - 250 metres southwest of the Sanu Filanan deposit and 1.2
km west of Sanu Filanan. The eastern limit of the latter anomaly is
marked by the Marie structure, a mapped zone of quartz pebbles in the
laterite cover. The anomaly, currently defined by samples greater than
50 ppb, stretches almost 700 metres further west and is open to the
south and north.

Sampling and Assay Procedures

RC samples were collected from the cyclone and split or pipe sampled.
All samples were sent to ABILAB Afrique de l'Ouest in Bamako, Mali for
fire assay using a 50-gram subsample. High-grade samples were checked by
reassaying the same pulp. A gravimetric finish was used on all samples
assaying over 10 g/t Au and some samples assaying over 4 g/t Au. Several
high values were checked by taking a second split from the sample
rejects and fire assaying with both AAS and gravimetric finishes.

Soil samples are collected from a depth of approximately 30 centimetres,
where possible. In areas of laterite plateau, material was chipped from
the crust. Samples were transported to SGS Guinea lab facilities at
Siguiri. The entire sample is crushed and a 1 kilogram subsample is
pulverized. A 50-gram pulp is then fire assayed with an AAS finish.

Personnel

The exploration team in Guinea consists of Project Manager Marc-Andre
Boudreau, B.Sc., Marthe Archambault, M.Sc., P.Geo., and Maxime Dupere,
B.Sc. Christopher J. Wild, P.Eng., V.P. Exploration for Cassidy Gold
Corp. is the Qualified Person for this release.
