ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Drake Gold Resources (PINKSHEETS: DKGR) is pleased to announce the sale of a secured 3% Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) for $180,000. The sale was made between DKGR and two private financiers, each agreeing to purchase a 1.5% NSR for $90,000 from the joint venture with Southern Mining and Exploration. The capital raised will be deposited into Company accounts at the rate of $30,000 per month based on a predetermined operating budget presented by the Board.
