Goldcliff Resource Corporation: York-Viking Gold Zone
Drilling Extends High-Grade Gold Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2005) - Goldcliff
Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GCN)

Leonard W. Saleken, President of Goldcliff Resource Corporation, is
pleased to provide an exploration progress report on Goldcliff's
100%-owned Panorama Ridge gold discovery in the Hedley Gold Basin, BC,
Canada. From discovery in 2000, exploration work at Panorama Ridge has
successfully advanced the property from gold in outcrops to gold in
drill holes. The exploration success has led to the discovery of the
potentially economic gold mineralization at the York-Viking gold zone at
Panorama Ridge.

Drill hole 240023 at the York-Viking gold zone is a exceptional
intersection of 34.30 grams/tonne (g/t) gold (previously reported). The
high-grade gold intercept is contained in a 1.51 g/t gold drill
intersection that covers 39.17 metres.

With the intercept 12.61 g/t, drill hole 240025 affirms the high-grade
potential of the York-Viking gold zone. The high-grade gold intercept is
contained in a 1.54 g/t gold drill intersection that covers 17.23 metres.

These high-grade gold numbers, along with several other holes, are
highly encouraging. Not only are the plus, 1.50 g/t gold values well
above 1.0 g/t gold, which is the approximate value that must be achieved
in order to warrant further exploration, the values, in general, are
comparable to those found at the previously-mined (1904-1996) Nickel
Plate orebodies. The Nickel Plate high-grade underground production,
which produced 1.5 million ounces of gold, recovered grades averaging
13.94 g/t gold, while the Mascot open-pit surface production, which
produced 1 million ounces of gold, recovered grades averaging 1.98 g/t
gold.

The remaining 2004 drill holes for the York-Viking gold zone are
reported. All six drill holes ended in the Gold Mineralized Zone (GMZ:
0.20 or greater g/t gold). The gold sample intervals are continuous and
are reported as drill lengths. The grams per tonne gold are weighted
averages. The York-Viking gold zone gold drilling results are summarized
as follows:

(Drill hole gold mineralization designations: GMZ(a), Zone1(i),
Zone2(ii), Zone3(iii), Zone4(iiii))


The 2004 Phase II drilling results for gold mineralization from the 12
holes have exceeded the Company's expectations and are an improvement
upon last year's exceptional Phase I results. The gold results of the
first six holes for the York-Viking gold zone have been previously
reported (www.goldcliff.com).

The significance of these gold results, as they relate to the
York-Viking gold zone, is that provide confidence of the continuity of
gold mineralization in the GMZ (gold mineralized zone) at Panorama Ridge.

The York-Viking gold zone was discovered in the 2003 Phase I drill
program. The surface trench and drill gold results indicate potential
economic gold grades over a widespread area. The surface gold
mineralization indicates that the York-Viking gold zone covers an area
of approximately 300 by 300 metres, and the drilling indicates that the
gold mineralization extends to depths of greater than 100 metres.

The Panorama Ridge gold property is located in a world-class gold
district which produced 2.5 million ounces of gold in the last 100
years. The gold was mined from a series of sedex-strata-bound gold
deposits which occurred at one location - the Nickel Plate-Mascot gold
mine (1904-1996). Discovered in 2000, Goldcliff's Panorama Ridge gold
property is situated in a geologically-similar environment to this
previous find. Panorama Ridge is located a few kilometers east of the
past-producing gold mine.

Leonard W. Saleken, PGeo, is the qualified person as defined by National
Instrument 43-101 who supervised the preparation and verification of the
technical information in this release. The gold assay results for the
remaining drill holes will be announced on a timely basis.
