Goldcliff Resource Corporation: Panorama Ridge Drilling-Nordic Gold Zone Returns High-Grade Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 18, 2007) - Leonard W. Saleken, Chairman of Goldcliff Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GCN), is pleased to report that the 2006 drilling program has produced high-grade gold results at the Nordic gold zone at Panorama Ridge. The ten 2006 drill holes intersected significant gold mineralization at surface and to core depths of 94 metres - highlighted by 1.56 grams gold per tonne over a 40.84 metre core intersection in hole 26059. Included in the intersection is 3.05 grams gold per tonne over 19.23 metres, with a higher-grade interval assaying 5.24 grams gold per tonne over 8.56 metres. The high-grade sample over 0.25 metres was 31.20 grams gold per tonne.

This 2006 Nordic drilling confirms that the Gold Mineralized Zone (GMZ) at the Nordic gold zone is extensive and continuous. The mineralized geological setting is complicated by folding and faulting, and multiple horizons of gold mineralization. The gold mineralization appears to trend to the northeast under overburden. Consequently, several untested geophysical anomalies (induced polarisation) in the area now become very significant and warrant follow up drill testing.

The drill gold mineralization intervals are reported with the core intercept in metres (m) and gold in grams per tonne (Au g/t). At the Nordic, gold mineralization occurs at the bed-rock surface. The drilling ground conditions determine when core can be recovered, thus accounting for a possible loss-of-sample from 0.00 to 3.66 metres. All of the holes were drilled to projected depths. The gold mineralization that is reported in the following holes is from recovered samples:

The Nordic zone is one of several gold zones discovered on the Panorama Ridge property within the discovery area that covers approximately two square kilometers along Panorama Ridge. The Panorama Ridge property is located four kilometers east of the historic Nickel Plate-Mascot mines that produced 2.5 million ounces of gold. The Panorama Ridge property was discovered by Goldcliff in 2000 by prospecting new logging road outcrops. The property is readily accessed by roads and has mine-related infrastructure. Goldcliff has identified five gold zones that have economic potential.

Eco Tech Laboratory Ltd. of Kamloops, B.C., an accredited laboratory, is conducting the sample preparation and analysis. All sample analysis is 30 gram fire assay-A.A. finish for gold and 28 multi-element ICP. The sample stream is subject to check analysis on repeat and re-split samples, and standards to maintain quality control.
