Golden Reign Intersects 3.83 Metres of 24.98 g/t Gold and 17.65 g/t Silver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2010) - Golden Reign Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or "Golden Reign") (TSX VENTURE:GRR) is pleased to report the latest assay results from drilling at its San Albino-Murra Gold Property (the "Property"), Nicaragua.

Drill holes SA10-07, SA10-08 and SA10-09 all intersected the San Albino Zone (Gold Zone 1) mineralization, with the best intercept returning:

SA10-09 3.83 metres of 24.98 g/t Au and 17. 65 g/t Ag
  including 2.0 metres of 39.30 g/t Au and 21.0 g/t Ag

Drilling at the historic San Albino Mine has confirmed the uniformity of high-grade near-surface mineralization, both in thickness and grade. As previously reported, several drill holes returned excellent gold intervals over significant widths:

  • SA10-06 averaged 22.40 g/t gold over 3.1 metres
  • SA10-02 averaged 29.32 g/t gold over 2.0 metres
  • SA10-03 averaged 10.75 g/t gold over 2.13 metres
  • SA10-01 averaged 7.35 g/t gold over 4.0 metres

Results from drill holes SA10-01 through SA10-09 correlate strongly with historical underground sampling of the 200, 300 and 400 levels of the San Albino Mine. Systematic sampling in 1919 and 1935 was conducted to effectively define ore grade and to ensure an economically optimized mill feed during the mining operation.

  • On the 200 and 300 levels, sampling recorded a grade of 0.70 ounces gold per ton (24 g/t gold) over a strike length of 70 metres and an average vein width of 1.33 metres
  • On the 400 level, sampling returned a grade of 0.89 ounces gold per ton (30.7 g/t gold) over a strike length of approximately 70 metres and an average vein width of 1.25 metres

A 3D model of drilling completed at San Albino is now available on the Company's website at

The San Albino Gold Zone, which hosts the San Albino Mine, has been extended from 70 metres to 200 metres along strike. Additionally, the zone has been extended to depth by up to 50 metres from level 400, giving merit to historical projections for the development of new levels, 500 and 600, at San Albino Mine. The San Albino Zone remains open in both directions along strike and at depth. This zone is one of four parallel zones being investigated in the area of the San Albino Mine.

The San Albino Mine area has an excellent potential to host a significant gold deposit. The discovery of three new mineralized zones has greatly expanded the size potential of such a deposit. All four gold zones remain open along strike and at depth.

Golden Reign is awaiting the results for five diamond drill holes completed at the Arras Mine area, situated approximately 450 metres to the south-east of the San Albino Mine.

The more significant drill results, with accompanying comments, from drill holes SA10-07 to SA10-09 are tabulated below:

SA10-07 (130/80) – 219.46 metres

Zone 1: San Albino Zone

From 25.80m to 28.00m -- 2.2m of 4.56 g/t Au and 7.82 g/t Ag

Sample From To Length Gold Silver
No. (m) (m) (m) (g/t) (g/t)
171920 25.80 26.45 0.65 8.39 12.4
171921 26.45 28.00 1.55 2.95 5.9

Drill hole SA10-07 was collared in the same location as drill hole SA10-06 which intersected four mineralized structures. SA10-07 intersected over two metres of excellent mineralization in Zone 1. However, the hole was drilled into a major fault zone which limited depth and recovery, preventing the intersection of Gold Zones 2 through 4.

SA10-08 (130/55) – 43.28 metres

From 39.62m to 41.48m -- 1.86m of 6.04 g/t Au and 7.83 g/t Ag

Sample From To Length Gold Silver
No. (m) (m) (m) (g/t) (g/t)
172065 39.62 40.12 0.50 0.96 4.9
172067 40.12 41.48 1.36 7.91 8.9

Difficulties with coring the hole and recovery, led to the early termination of SA10-08 at a depth of 43.28 metres - just below the San Albino Zone mineralization.

SA10-09 (150/55) – 284.38 metres

Zone 1: San Albino Zone

From 38.90 m to 42.73 m -- 3.83 m of 24.98 g/t Au and 17. 65 g/t Ag

Sample From To Length Gold Silver
No. (m) (m) (m) (g/t) (g/t)
172086 38.90 39.30 0.40 8.21 34.7
172087 39.30 41.30 2.00 39.30 21.0
172088 41.30 42.23 0.93 9.50 6.1
172089 42.23 42.73 0.50 9.92 12.1

Drill hole SA10-09 was drilled from same location as SA10-08, reaching a depth of 284.38 metres. It intersected the San Albino Zone and a second, mineralized vein which the Company believes to be Zone 2, initially located by drill hole SA10-06.
