Golden Reign Resources Ltd.: New Gold Zone Extended to 600 Metres Along Strike, Returns 5.3 Metres Grading 48.28 g/t Gold and 20.98 g/t Silver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Golden Reign Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GRR) (the "Company" or "Golden Reign") is pleased to report results from three additional trenches located in the San Pablo/Las Conchitas area of its San Albino-Murra Gold Property (the "Property"), Nicaragua.

Covering an aggregate 125.3 metres, the trenches have exposed the southwestern extension of a newly discovered gold mineralized zone (see news release NR-11-12 dated April 12, 2011), extending the mineralized zone by an additional 400 metres, for a total strike length of approximately 600 metres. The zone remains open in both directions and at depth. The zone hosts several excellent targets and will be tested by drilling during the on-going 2011 drill program.

Continuous one metre channel sampling was completed along both the floors and walls of the trenches. A total of 129 samples were collected. The most significant results are as follows:

Trench 10:5.3 metres averaging 48.28 g/t gold and 20.98 g/t silver
including2.0 metres averaging 118.91 g/t gold and 40.20 g/t silver

Located to the northeast of trench TR-10, trenches TR-14 and TR-15 intersected 4 and 7 quartz veins, respectively. The quartz veins, ranging from 1.0 to 6.0 metres in true width, returned gold values of between 0.01 to 2.47 g/t. The most significant intercepts are presented below:

Trench 14:1.0 metre of 2.25 g/t gold and minor silver
and1.0 metre of 0.88 g/t gold and minor silver
Trench 15:1.0 metre of 2.00 g/t gold and minor silver
and1.0 metre of 2.47 g/t gold and 1.20 g/t silver

The steeply dipping vein system exposed by TR-14 and TR-15 was covered by a 6 metre thick layer of highly weathered rock. Only the top of the veins were exposed and accessible for sampling. The Company also sampled the walls of the trenches, collecting a total of 29 vertical samples from highly altered schists containing narrow quartz veinlets up to 2 centimetres wide. Most of the vertical samples, which were not used for grade calculation purposes, returned elevated gold values. Two samples from TR-15 returned high gold values:

Sample #13 –2.0 metres of 62.96 g/t gold and 19.20 g/t silver; and
Sample #21 –2.0 metres of 3.53 g/t gold and 7.80 g/t silver

Typically, the altered schists contain high-grade gold mineralization when located in close proximity to gold-bearing quartz veins. The Company is very encouraged by the trenching results.

The following table presents the most significant results from the trenches:
