Goldrush Accelerates Exploration at Ronguen With Initiation of Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 25, 2007) - Goldrush Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GOD) ("Goldrush" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on exploration activities at its Ronguen gold project in Burkina Faso. Ronguen is located on the Kongoussi 1 permit, six kilometres northwest of the High River Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX:HRG) Bissa Trend gold deposits.

On April 11, 2007 Goldrush announced new Rotary Air Blast ("RAB") drill results from Ronguen which included:

- 1.83 g/t Au over 24 metres

- 6.1 g/t Au over 16 metres

- 5.6 g/t Au over 12 metres

- 2.41 g/t Au over 12 metres

- 1.67 g/t Au over 12 metres

- 1.59 g/t Au over 10 metres

- 29.4 g/t Au over 2 metres

These results extended the gold mineralization system to 1,300 metres, with the zone still open to the west beyond the first grid, onto the adjoining Tikare permit held by Goldrush (Please refer to Goldrush news release dated April 11, 2007 for complete assay results and QA/QC procedures).

On the initial grid surveyed by induced polarization, the gold zone is coincident with a linear, highly residual resistivity anomaly which continues to the west off the area of the survey. Based on these promising results, Goldrush extended the surface gridding an additional 600 metres onto its contiguous Tikare permit. A high resolution resistivity survey on the new grid established a continuation of the gold mineralization associated resistivity anomaly as the target for additional drilling. The high resistivity anomaly probably represents hydrothermal silica alteration of the deformed gold-bearing rocks which occur primarily at and near a diorite-metasediment contact of good rheologic contrast. Thick laterite cover over the western portion of the gold zone masks the gold-in-soil geochemical response in that area. A plan map showing the results of this survey has been posted to the Company's website

On April 20 the Company commenced a 3,480 metre RAB drilling program to:

(1) test the zone of gold mineralization farther to the west (2,430 metres of drilling);

(2) test the connection between two gold intersections on the eastern part of the new grid (400 metres);

(3) test behind RAB hole KGRB06-001B that returned 7.95 g/t Au over 2 metres from the mottled zone (50 metres); and

(4) test the extension of the gold zone to the east on line 1300E of the old grid (600 metres).

Following the receipt of the RAB results, a 3,000 metre reverse circulation ("RC") drilling program is planned from the current westernmost RAB fence to the location of RC hole KGRR06-002, 900 metres to the east. These holes, to be drilled on 80 metre spaced sections, will test the continuity of the mineralization which was identified in the widely spaced RAB fences. In addition, the program will include 250 metres of diamond drilling to better define the lithologic relationships and the structure, and to obtain preliminary geotechnical information.

Update on Exploration Program in the Hounde Greenstone Belt

A 10,460 metre RAB drilling program on the Olongo, Bangbara and Loropeni permits which was initiated on February 28 is scheduled for completion by April 28. A total of 8,618 metres has been drilled to April 14, including 4,293 metres in 94 holes (7 fences) at Bangbara and 3,617 metres in 82 holes (3 fences) at Olongo. The RAB program will assist in the definition of the newly discovered, northerly trending, 5 kilometre long and 2.5 kilometre wide gold-bearing corridor on the Olongo and Bangbara permits (see Goldrush news release dated November 01, 2006), and will investigate the favourable geophysical signatures and gold-bearing rock samples found on the Loropeni permit.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Goldrush follows a strict sampling and QA-QC protocol. Details of this program for RAB and RC drilling and rock and soil sampling are provided in Goldrush news releases dated November 1, September 19, August 31 and July 19, 2006.

Mr. Driffield Cameron, P. Geo., Director of Goldrush, is the Qualified Person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Cameron reviewed the technical information contained in this news release.
