Detour Gold Reports Additional Drill Results From Its 100% Owned Detour Lake Property in Ontario

(2.12 g/t/ 69.0 m and 4.47 g/t/ 32.0 m in Gap Zone; 3.44 g/t/ 39.0 m in West Pit)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results for an additional 46 holes totaling 19,810 metres (including 8 holes abandoned for 1,425 metres) from its 2008 infill diamond drilling program at the Detour Lake project in northern Ontario. Assay results from the deepening of 16 holes (drilled in 2007) totaling 2,928 metres are also reported below. Approximately 3,700 metres of the 231,104 metres (621 holes) drilled in the 2007-08 programs remain to be released.

Today's results continue to show good continuity of the main mineralized zones and confirmation of additional gold mineralization within the US$700 pit shell (mineral resource reported in Press Release July 2, 2008), which should positively impact the final pit design, including the reduction of the waste to ore ratio, for the pre-feasibility study expected before the end of the second quarter of 2009.

Results from 12 holes (including one hole abandoned) and the deepening of four holes infilling the centre of the deposit (from 18,600E to 19,250E, referred to as the Gap Zone) encountered gold mineralization in the core of the mineralized corridor especially at the contacts between the massive and pillow flows. The best intercepts included hole DG-08-529 which intersected 1.10 g/t over 58.0 metres and 2.12 g/t (uncut) or 1.78 g/t (cut) over 69.0 metres and hole DG-08-546 which intersected near surface 2.63 g/t (uncut) or 2.02 g/t (cut) over 36.0 metres. Both these holes have confirmed continuity of the main mineralized gold zones.

In the area of the former open pit (West Pit area), results from an additional 27 drill holes (including six holes abandoned) and extension of two holes between sections 19,320E and 20,120E confirmed continuity of the main hanging wall mineralized zones that are within 200 metres of the CMH. A wide intersection of gold mineralization was encountered in hole DG-08-534 with 1.69 g/t (uncut) or 1.22 (cut) over 64.0 metres. Hole DG-08-513 intersected 3.44 g/t (uncut) or 1.80 g/t (cut) over 39.0 metres just below the former pit on section 20,000E.

In the area of the Calcite Zone, 10 holes drilled in 2007 were deepened to mainly test the lower massive flow unit and Chert Marker Horizon (CMH). Another seven holes (including one abandoned) tested up to 500 metres in the hanging wall of the CMH. Results continued to show the continuity of the CMH and good mineralization at the contacts between massive and pillow flows. Hole DG-08-540 intersected 2.78 g/t (uncut) or 1.46 g/t (cut) over 36.0 metres at the contact of massive flows and CMH. Hole DG-08-551 intersected 2.66 g/t (uncut) or 1.75 g/t (cut) over 28.2 metres in a series of quartz veins with abundant visible gold in massive flows.

Significant mineralized (uncut) intervals encountered are shown below.

The 2009 drilling program of 50,000 metres is well underway with approximately 25,700 metres completed as of April 20. The objectives of the 2009 program are to complete the infill program on a 40 metre by 40 metre spacing up to section 18,400E (Calcite Zone area) and to test the near surface footwall mineralization in the area of the former open pit over a strike length of one kilometre (i.e. DGC-07-194A with 6.20 g/t over 15m (capped to 20 g/t)).

Detour Gold's delineation program is being managed by Project Manager, Mr. Roger Aubertin, P.Eng., a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Aubertin has verified and approved the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information. Samples are now prepared at SGS Minerals Services in Sudbury and assayed in their laboratory at Don Mills, Ontario, Canada. Analysis for gold is done on sawn half core samples using fire assay (AA finish). Samples with higher grade gold ( greater than 5 g/t) are re-assayed using the pulp and metallics procedures. Standard reference materials, blank and field duplicate samples are inserted prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the assay data. For additional information on Quality Assurance and Quality Control ("QA/QC"), refer to the press release dated April 11, 2007.
