Drilling Extends Clavo 99 to a Width of 650 Meters With 5.85 Meters Grading 6.06 g/t Au

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 13, 2008) - Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) is pleased to report assay results from drill holes SM-42, 43 and 44 in the southeastern part of the San Miguel Vein. Drill hole SM-42 intersected the vein 80 meters to the southeast and 50 meters above recently reported SM-39. Hole SM-43 pierced the vein 80 meters to the south and at the same elevation as SM-42. SM-44 intercepted the vein 100 meters directly below SM-43, and is 180 meters southeast of SM-39.

These new assay results have extended 'Clavo 99' to a known width of at least 650 meters and demonstrated continuity of mineralization from the surface to a depth of nearly 400 meters.

Hole SM-42 had a significant vein intercept of 5.85 meters (true width) grading 6.06 g/t Au and 16.1 g/t Ag. It also contained 0.93% Pb and 2.56% Zn, not shown in the table. The best intercept from SM-43 was 1.67 meters at 2.74 g/t /Au and 20.5 g/t Ag. Finally, SM-44 had several intercepts including 0.43 meters at 5.59 g/t Au and 3,070 g/t Ag as part of a wider, not quite so high grade intercept.

The San Miguel project is a joint venture between Tara Gold Resources Corp. (30%) and Paramount Gold Mining Corp. (70%). Paramount is the operator of the exploration program and provided this update in their news release of June 13, 2008.

Highlights of these assay results are seen in the table below. Please visit http://www.TaraGoldResources.com for additional information.

Paramount has commented that, "The Clavo 99 zone just keeps going and going to the southeast and continues to show very good grades and thicknesses. We have now turned our attention to exploring the extent of the clavo on the northwest side. The vein intercepts appear to be good from examining the core from the newest holes."

Quality Control

Paramount takes detailed digital photos of the entire core before it is cut by saw to half core which is assayed at ALS Chemex's Vancouver laboratory. As part of quality assurance, quality control (QA/QC), Paramount has put into place a detailed program of periodically introducing certified standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream. Half-core samples are being retained on site for verification and reference purposes.
