Golden Reign Resources Ltd.: Mina Francisco Returns 9.0 Metres of 15.23 g/t Gold, 9.7 g/t Silver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) - Golden Reign Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or "Golden Reign") (TSX VENTURE:GRR) is pleased to report assay results from underground sampling of Mina Francisco, located in the Southern (San Albino) District of its San Albino-Murra Gold Property (the "Property"), Nicaragua.

Sampling highlights are:

9.0 metres of 15.23 g/t gold and 9.7 g/t silver

Including: 2.5 metres of 25.26 g/t gold and 10.2 g/t silver; and

0.5 metre of 47.24 g/t gold and 15.6 g/t silver

Mina Francisco, an old underground working from the 1920's, is situated approximately 8 kilometres south of the historic San Albino Mine. The Mina Francisco vein is at least 9.0 metres wide, striking northeast-southwest and dipping northwest roughly 65 degrees. It is one of Charles Butter's twelve high-grade veins, planned for development to supply the San Albino Mill. Charles Butters, one of the foremost mining engineers of his time, owned and operated the San Albino Mine from 1922 until 1927, prior to the onset of the Nicaraguan revolution.

The mineralized zone hosting Mina Francisco exceeds 700 metres of strike length and remains open in both directions.

The following table shows the results of sampling at Mina Francisco:

The collapsed portal to Mina Francisco was reopened, permitting access to the approximately 15.0 meters of the drift, where it is again obstructed by cave.

The assays provided in the table above are channel samples across the quartz vein and schist, both horizontal and vertical, as illustrated by the following diagram:
