Gold Canyon Discovers North-West Extension of Main Trend at Bear Head Uranium Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 31, 2006) - Gold Canyon Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GCU) ("Gold Canyon" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that as part of our overall exploration development plans, our exploration team has discovered significant uranium mineralization 3 kilometers west of any historic occurrences previously reported along the main Bear Head Fault Zone (BHFZ).

The Bear Head Uranium Project covers a 23 kilometer strike-length of the BHFZ and only the eastern-most 8 kilometers of the property have previously generated any uranium occurrences of significance. The new discovery, returning 0.06% uranium over 3 meters from a hand-held GR-135G Spectrometer, is located on the south shore of Favourable Lake. Generally, it is assumed for exploration purposes that deposits with sufficient widths and volume grading 0.02% U308 (0.4 lbs.) might support a large open pit, or 0.1% U308 (2 lbs.) an underground mining operation.

The main uranium trend is associated with the BHFZ, a major structural deformation zone of intense shearing striking N70 degreesW with dips varying from 60 degrees to 90 degrees to the south. It has been postulated that movement along this zone focused hydrothermal solutions derived from a deep-seated magma with assimilated sediments to deposit uraninite in en-echelon shears. These en-echelon, concordant shears host numerous zones of pegmatite lenses comprising quartz, feldspar and biotite with minor amounts of molybdenite, chalcopyrite, pyrite, magnetite and uraninite.

The new discovery, a westward extension of the known mineralization, is hosted in thick, biotite-rich sills rather than the narrow pegmatite dykes targeted by previous workers. The exploration team is excited to confirm that there is the potential to discover uranium mineralization over significant widths anywhere along the 23 kilometer target zone.

Gold Canyon's exploration efforts in Canada are currently centered around the Red Lake Mining Camp in north-west Ontario. The Springpole Lake Project is 70 miles to the east, and the Favourable Lake and Bear Head Projects are 120 miles to the north of Red Lake. Projects to the north may be accessed directly by winter roads connecting Native settlements to Red Lake. The Government of Ontario has recently pledged a budget to support the regional infrastructure and maintenance of these roads. This will greatly decrease the cost of future winter drill programs and the transport of heavy equipment and supplies necessary for exploring this area.

The Company controls a 100% interest in the Springpole Gold Project and the new Bear Head Uranium Project which is adjacent to their Favourable Lake Poly-metallic property currently under option to Shoreham Resources Inc. pursuant to an option and joint venture agreement entered into in December, 2005.

Through its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, Gold Canyon Resources USA Inc., the Company controls a 100% interest in the Cordero Gallium Project situated in Humboldt County, Nevada, U.S.A.

All four properties are advancing as per the Company's overall development plans with upcoming announcements regarding specific results anticipated to be released over the next few weeks.
