Dutch Gold Resources Further Enhances Mill to Process Free Gold

Company Nears Completion of Audit to Become Fully Reporting

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 24, 2007 -- Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI) (the "Company"), a developer and operator of proven gold mines and a regional mill in North America, today announced that it has installed a Knelson Concentrator at its Merlin Mill near Grant's Pass, Oregon, following the recent discovery of unusually high amounts of free gold, not commonly seen in structures such as the zones being developed. The Knelson Concentrator is said to offer the most efficient and highest precious metal recovery performance in the industry. Installation of the Knelson concentrator follows the company's recent announcement it has increased capacity at the mill from 120 tons of ore per day (TPD) to 330 TPD.

Dan Hollis, Chief Executive Officer of Dutch Gold Resources, stated, "Our mill team responded quickly to the discovery of free gold and installed the Knelson Concentrator to capitalize on these favorable findings within a matter of weeks. We expect to immediately benefit from our expanded capacity to capture gold from our ore and the initial assays indicate higher recovery rates in our first production runs since installation of the new equipment. Our operating team intends to make additional enhancements to the mill, which we believe will further optimize our recovery rates."

Separately, Mr. Hollis reported, "Our efforts to bring the Company into full reporting status are progressing, and we anticipate completion of our audit during the second quarter."
