CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 16, 2006) - Ralston Valley, Nevada -Ga -100% Interest

Golconda Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GA) has entered into a joint venture agreement with two arms-length private parties whereby Golconda can earn a 50% interest in 42 claims by spending US $ 400 000 in exploration over 5 years, and making payments of US $ 5000 per year. Golconda can earn an additional 20% by producing a bankable feasibility study within 5 years after electing to do so. The claims border on Golconda's RV claims and cover the continuation of the two gold mineralized structures being explored by Golconda. The target is Carlin-type gold mineralization and the favourable laminated silty limestone sequence is thought to occur at a depth of 1500 to 2000 ft on the new property, and at a depth of 700 to 1200 ft on Golconda's RV claims.
