Earth Dragon Reduces Exposure to Risk

TOKYO--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - Earth Dragon Resources, Inc. (OTCBB: EARH) (the "Company"), wishes to advise that effective March 30, 2011 it has terminated the Joint Venture Agreement entered into on January 21, 2011 regarding the Chisu Gold Project in Tanzania. 

Company Management believes that Tanzania's economic and geopolitical environment may suffer adverse short term effects stemming from regional unrest including recent events in North Africa and the Middle East. These conditions come at a time when the Company feels prudent in concentrating its focus on efforts in Ghana and increasing its portfolio with increased activity towards the examination of resource development opportunities in mining-friendly regions of the globe.

Under the terms of the JV Agreement, Earth Dragon had a ninety (90) day period to conduct its due diligence of the project. As a result of such due diligence review, Earth Dragon has elected not to proceed with the JV Agreement and it is now terminated.

In Ghana, conditions remain stable and safely exceed the underlying risk management criteria of the Company. Earth Dragon remains committed in its efforts at the Nkwanta concessions where development activity is ongoing at its property located within the Ashanti Gold belt.

Additional details regarding the Company, its business and its agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.

Earth Dragon Resources is a mineral exploration company with a strategic focus on the purchase and development of high quality production-stage gold projects in Africa. The Company is currently developing a highly prospective gold deposit in the Ashanti Gold Belt of Ghana with plans to expand ongoing exploration and mapping efforts to include pilot plant production.
