Goldcliff Resource Corporation: York-Viking Zone Encounters More High-Grade Gold Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 5, 2006) - Goldcliff Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GCN) reports significant assay results from the drilling at the Panorama Ridge property, York-Viking gold zone (YVZ), in the Hedley Gold Basin, British Columbia, Canada. The drilling results for YVZ continue to expand the mineralized zone and confirm that gold and silver mineralization with higher grade intersections occurs throughout the zone. Gold mineralization is highlighted by 2.03, 4.66 and 34.30 grams per tonne gold.

The York-Viking zone drilling results that relate to section 9930N are highlighted by 1.00 grams per tonne gold (g/t) and 0.4 g/t silver over a drill intercept of 67.83 metres (m) -- a highlight of which is 5.20 g/t gold and 0.3 g/t silver over 9.00 metres. High-grade values of 34.30 g/t gold and 1.6 g/t silver are intersected in the drilling.

The significantly strong drilling and trenching results at the York-Viking gold zone successfully establishes that gold and silver mineralization occurs concurrently at depth and on the surface. The drill holes on section 9930N in the YVZ demonstrate the continuity of gold and silver grades at depth. The following table lists gold and silver values for the section:

24023 284072.79 5473099.87 320 -55 96.93

24024 284072.79 5473099.87 140 -45 99.97


Additional assays for the remaining YVZ and the Nordic zones' drill holes are pending. In 2005, Goldcliff drilled 1,211 metres in 13 core drill holes.

In summary, gold results are consistent with the Panorama gold deposit model - a world-class, sedimentary, strata-bound gold skarn deposit with an important silver grade content. The gold and silver mineralization at YVZ occurs concurrently on the surface and at depth.

The gold and silver production from the nearby Nickel Plate-Mascot mine (1904-1996) was 2.5 million ounces gold and 600,000 ounces silver, including 981,030 kilograms of copper and 4 kilograms of zinc.

Eco Tech Laboratory Ltd. of Kamloops, B.C., an accredited laboratory, is conducting the sample preparation and analyses. 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.
