Gold Canyon Announces Expansion of High Grade Gallium Mineralization in the C-15 Zone at the Cordero Gallium Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 8, 2007) - Gold Canyon Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GCU)(PINK SHEETS:GDCRF) ("Gold Canyon" or "the Company") is pleased to announce additional drill results from the resource conversion and delineation drilling program at the Company's Cordero gallium project located in Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. Cordero is recognized as the largest known primary gallium occurrence in North America.

Drill results received for 25 reverse circulation drill holes in the C-15 zone continue to expand the known high grade gallium mineralization (greater than 100 g/t). Drill holes C-115, C-128 and C-116, each containing gallium intercepts greater than 100 g/t (see Table 1) expand the known high grade mineralization some 500 feet to the N-NE from drill holes C-99 and C-112, reported in previous news release dated December 13, 2006 (Please refer to the map located on our website www.goldcanyon.ca under "Latest news"). Lost circulation and caving in drill holes C-106, C-107, C-107A and C-129 caused them to be abandoned prior to reaching the target depth for mineralization. Regardless, the high grade gallium mineralization in the C-15 Zone continues to show excellent continuity and remains open in three directions. For reference, the indicated (337,360 Kg) and inferred (384,640 Kg) resource areas defined in an independent technical report titled "NI 43-101 Technical Report and Resource Estimation for the Cordero Gallium Project Humboldt County, Nevada, USA" dated April 16, 2006, prepared by reserva INTERNATIONAL LLC of Reno, Nevada. The C-15 Zone delineation drill target area are marked on the attached map. The C-15 zone is named after hole C-15, completed in 2001, containing a 55 ft intercept, from 45 ft to 100 ft depth, with an average grade of 183 g/t Ga, that included a 25 ft intercept grading 266 g/t Ga. Gallium intercepts from the latest 25 drill holes from the C-15 Zone are summarized below.

The Company has recently concluded phase I of a reverse circulation delineation drilling program consisting of 72 drill holes for a total of 15,455 ft, with a nominal step-out spacing of 100 feet. In addition to the 25 drill holes announced in this news release, 30 drill holes were previously announced on November 6 and December 13, 2006. Additional results are pending from the NE Bradley Pits Area.

This program is being conducted under the supervision of consulting geologist Samuel Nunnemaker. Mr. Nunnemaker is a Registered Geologist and Qualified Person under the NI 43-101. All samples were analyzed by Inspectorate Laboratories of Reno, Nevada.
