Goldstake Updates Diamond Drill Program on Clay Property In Northern Ontario

VIRGINIATOWN, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Goldstake Explorations Inc. (TSX:GXP)(FRANKFURT:GOO) -

Two drill rigs have been mobilized on Goldstake's-Transpacific's gold and diamond project situated 1 mile from the Kerr Addison Mine in the prolific Cadillac-Larder Break.

Six drill holes have now been completed on the Clay Property formerly known as the McGarry Property and visible native gold has been observed in two of the four holes logged to date.

One of the intervals of visible gold mineralization occurs in a 35 metre section of drill core containing disseminated to semi-massive pyrite and chalcopyrite.

The two drill holes containing visible gold targeted a 2005 drill hole intersection assaying 33 grams/tonne Au across 8.5 metres which included an interval assaying 1,078 grams/tonne Au across 0.2 metres.

The current 4,000 metre drill program is systematically testing the Instant Pond Au-Cu-Ag Zone at 50 metre intervals. The mineralization has been traced in multiple zones by previous drilling in an area measuring 450 metres in strike and 300 metres in width. The extent of the mineralization remains open in all dimensions.

One drill rig has now been temporarily moved to test several potential kimberlite-diamond targets on the property which have been identified by ground magnetometer surveys and extensive till sampling tracing the kimberlite/diamond indicator minerals to the potential source.

The current drill program is part of a $2.5 million exploration project on the Clay Property allowing Goldstake to earn a 75% interest in the Clay Property from Transpacific Resources Inc. before December 31, 2009. Goldstake has changed the name of the project to the "Clay Property" in memory of the late Mr. Michael Clay, former president of Transpacific Resources Inc.

Goldstake Explorations Inc. is a Canadian exploration and development company with gold, base metal, uranium and diamond projects in Canada, The USA and Australia. The Clay Property is one of two properties Goldstake has in the Kirkland Lake-Larder Lake section of the Abitibi greenstone belt.
