Golden Reign Resources Ltd.: Drilling Commences at San Albino

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Golden Reign Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or "Golden Reign") (TSX VENTURE:GRR) is very pleased to announce that the Phase II diamond drilling program at its San Albino-Murra Gold Property, Nicaragua (the "Property"), has commenced.

As previously announced (see news release dated March 16, 2011), the 2011 diamond drilling program will consist of at least 6,000 metres, and up to 10,000 metres, of definition drilling. Drilling is intended to further extend the mineralized area and provide sufficient data to calculate a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource at San Albino/Arras.

The 2011 exploration program, including the planned diamond drilling, is fully funded. A non-brokered private placement closed in January 2011 raised gross proceeds of approximately $7.5 million. At present, the Company has outstanding stock options and warrants which are in-the-money and would, if fully exercised, raise an additional $16.3 million.

On behalf of the Board,

Kim Evans, CGA, President & CEO
