Goldrush Intersects 6.1 g/t Au over 16 Metres in RAB Drilling at Ronguen, Extends Mineralized Structure to 1,300 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Apr. 11, 2007) - Goldrush Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GOD) ("Goldrush" or the "Company") is pleased to report results from two follow-up rotary air blast ("RAB") drilling programs which were designed to test the westerly strike extension of the Ronguen gold zone. Ronguen is located on the Kongoussi 1 permit, six kilometers northwest of the High River Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX:HRG) ("High River") Bissa Project. The new RAB drill results have extended the gold mineralization system 1300 metres with the zone still open to the west, beyond the current grid and onto the adjoining Tikare permit held by Goldrush.

Assay highlights include:

- 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

Len Brownlie Ph.D, President and CEO of Goldrush commented "We are extremely pleased with these results which have significantly increased the size and grade of an auriferous trend that is strategically located only six kilometres from High River’s Bissa project. Based on these encouraging results, we will initiate another rotary air blast drill program to test the western extent of this pervasive gold-bearing system. If results justify an acceleration of exploration at Ronguen, we can fund the program with the proceeds received from a recent C$1.89 million private placement and from the exercise of existing share purchase warrants. In this regard we are very pleased that one million warrants have been exercised recently at a price of $0.35 per share."

Highlights of New Drill Assays Received

A follow-up RAB program of 63 drill holes totaling 2,888 meters over four fences was completed in January 2007 to test the western strike extension of the Ronguen gold zone. An additional 654 m of RAB drilling to the north and 100 m west of the western-most January drill fence was completed on March 20, 2007. These latest drill fences have successfully extended the Ronguen gold zone to over 1300 metres. The zone remains open to the west and open at depth, with RAB hole KGRB07-106 ending in mineralization. A surface plan showing the drill hole locations and orientations will be available at www.goldrushresources.ca.

In this program, the RAB fences consist of a series of holes inclined at -50 degrees to the north, spaced at 25 meter intervals and drilled to a depth of approximately 36 to 62 metres. Significant assay results are as follows:

(i) Visible gold reported in pan


Readers are cautioned that there is insufficient information to determine if the above reported hole length intervals represent true widths.

The gold zone occurs at and near a contact of good rheologic contrast – between diorite and metasediments. At the west end of the current RAB drilling, the zone is covered by thick laterite and hence does not produce a geochemical signature. However, on the limited size local grid surveyed by induced polarization, the gold zone is coincident with a linear, high residual resistivity anomaly, which continues off the area of survey, and which is probably representing hydrothermal silica addition to the deformed host rocks.

Plans for the Next Phase of Exploration

Based on these encouraging results, and with the zone open to the west, the Company has initiated a work program to extend the surface grid an additional 500 metres onto Goldrush’s contiguous Tikare permit, and to run a high resolution resistivity survey, which is scheduled to start on April 14. With positive results, the survey will be followed immediately by a RAB drilling program to extend the zone of gold mineralization farther to the west. Pending receipt of the RAB results, a reverse circulation drilling program is planned to test the continuity of the gold zone from the current westernmost RAB fence for approximately 900 metres easterly to the location of RC hole KGRR06-002, on 120 metre spaced sections.

Background

Goldrush’s first drilling program at Ronguen included seven reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes in July 2006 (see Goldrush news release dated August 31, 2006) over a strike length of 740 meters followed by 3,206 meters of RAB drilling to the east in November and December 2006 (see Goldrush news release dated January 22, 2007 for complete assay results and QA/QC procedures). All five northerly drilled RC holes and the western most RAB drill fence returned very encouraging assay results, including:
