Goldcliff Resource Corporation: York-Viking Zone-Main Block-Gold Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Leonard W. Saleken, Chairman of Goldcliff Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GCN) is pleased to report that the 2007 York-Viking drilling results from the main portion of the York-Viking zone confirm that the gold mineralization is extensive, and that it contains multiple gold horizons. The assay results for the 10 final 2007 diamond drill holes establish that the York-Viking gold mineralization continues to expand on the Company's 100%-owned Panorama Ridge property, which is located near Hedley, B.C. The drilling results are highlighted by 15.00 metres of 1.02 grams per tonne gold containing 5.12 metres of 2.12 grams per tonne gold, with a high-grade value of 4.20 grams per tonne gold. With trenching starting in the Bonanza trench area, which contains the Bonanza gold horizon of 5.00 metres averaging 180.53 grams per tonne gold (high grade values of 596.00 grams per tonne gold), the 2008 exploration program is in progress.

Conclusions

The gold mineralization in the York-Viking zone continues to expand with the drilling. The extensive gold mineralization contains multiple gold horizons of potential economic grades. In the main portion of the York-Viking zone, the in-fill drilling intersected strong and consistent gold mineralization, with the GMZ ranging in gold values of 0.20 to 0.73g/t over 35 to 95 metre intersections.

The York-Viking gold zone is the largest of several gold zones discovered on the Panorama Ridge property. The Panorama Ridge property is located four kilometers east of the historic Nickel Plate-Mascot mines that once produced 2.5 million ounces of gold. The Panorama Ridge property was discovered in 2000 when Goldcliff prospected new logging road outcrops. The property has mine-related infrastructure and is readily accessed by roads. Goldcliff has identified multiple gold zones that have economic potential.

The Panorama Ridge property contains a large surface area of gold mineralization related to silica-iron alteration (skarn) in sedimentary rocks from the Hedley Formation of the Triassic Nicola Group. The gold mineralization is related to the skarn alteration and occurs over an area of approximately two square kilometres. Contained in the alteration area from northeast to southwest are the Nordic, York-Viking and Tower gold zones. These zones are separate entities occurring over a distance of approximately 1,000 metres. The trenching and drilling have narrowed the gap between the zones.

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. The drill core gold values are reported as weighted-average gold values in grams per tonne (g/t). The gold values are continuous over the core interval represented.

All of the assay results from the 2007 drill holes have been reported. The 2008 exploration work program is in progress, with trenching starting in the Bonanza trench area.
