Gold Reach Resources Ltd. Drills 57.50 m of 0.67% Cu, 0.077g/t Au, 22.2g/t Ag, at Seel

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Gold Reach Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GRH) is pleased to announce it has received partial results for the winter drill program.

To date assays results from five drill holes have been received, four of which test the east side of the Seel Breccia and one tests the flanks of the Seel copper - gold porphyry. Three other holes were lost due to difficult ground conditions.

Historical hole S06-42 (2006) intersected 138 meters of 0.845 Cu%, 0.065 Au g/t and 23 g/t Ag and was intersected at right angles by drill hole S08-61 at a depth of 70 meters. This new hole, S08-61 intersected 57.50 meters of mineralized breccia over a true width of 46 meters. During the last four years 15 drill holes have intersected the Seel Breccia, 10 of which principally tested its eastern edges. Drilling and surface geological mapping suggest the Seel breccia pipe is approximately 200 meters in diameter with high grade copper-silver-zinc mineralization commonly occurring on the outer flanks of the pipe. On the east side of the Seel breccia pipe mineralization occurs in a curved form extending over 185 meters in length, at least 270 meters to depth and plunges steeply towards the Seel copper gold porphyry only 100 meters away (see website). To date the 5 drill holes suggest a true thickness of mineralization from 26 to 46 meters. The inside portion of the breccia pipe has a rough diameter of 150 meters and is not highly mineralized. However, the intensity of the visible silica alteration and consistent rock brecciation in drill core continue to make this inner portion of the pipe an interesting target for other potential high grade mineralization at depth.

The remaining holes were drilled to test extensions of the copper-gold and copper-molybdenum mineralization anywhere from 300 to 440 meters east and south of the Seel breccia. Once all the results are available, the 80 holes drilled at Seel over the last 4 years will be submitted to Wardrop Engineering for a resource calculation.

All the core has been split and sent to the Assayers Canada Labs preparation facility in Telkwa, B.C., and then to Vancouver, B.C., for analysis. All samples are undergoing a multi-element analysis by ICP/MS and wet geochem for gold and assays are pending.
