Drill Results From Golden Aria's Coal Canyon Property

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 26, 2007 -- Golden Aria Corp. (OTCBB: GARA) ("Golden Aria") reports that it has received results from a two-hole drill program totaling 2,020 ft (615.8m) that was completed in late 2006 on its Coal Canyon gold exploration project in Eureka County, Nevada. The holes, MCC-1 and MCC-2, were designed to test resistivity and self-potential anomalies at the intersections of altered fault zones, in favorable lower plate carbonate rocks. The holes intersected six, 30 ft (9.1m) to 200 ft (61m)-thick zones of moderately decalcified, and variably silicified/clay altered silty limestone. Neither of the holes intersected significantly anomalous gold mineralization. The Coal Canyon property is under option from Miranda Gold Corp. ("Miranda").

The Coal Canyon property consists of 64 unpatented lode claims in the center of the Cortez Trend, approximately three miles south of the Cortez Joint Venture's ET Blue project and adjoining the northeast side of US Gold's Tonkin Springs property. The property occupies two square miles (5.2 square kilometers) of the Coal Canyon lower-plate window comprised of the Devonian Wenban, Silurian-Devonian Roberts Mountain and Ordovician Hanson Creek Formations. These formations are important hosts for gold mineralization on the Cortez Trend.

All drill samples were collected with a reverse circulation drill using 10 foot sample intervals. Samples were assayed by ALS Chemex Laboratories, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada. Gold results were determined using standard fire assay techniques on a 30 gram sample with an atomic absorption finish. QC/QA included the insertion of numerous standards into the sample stream.

Golden Aria Corp is an exploration company actively exploring for gold in Nevada.
