Grayd Resumes Drilling at La India Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2009) - Grayd Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GYD) is pleased to announce that a 3,000 metre reverse circulations drill program has commenced on its 100% owned La India gold project located in Sonora State, Mexico. Drilling is targeted at expanding the current main zone and north zone resource areas. At a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off, resources total 17.2 million tonnes @ 1.01 g/t Au indicated (559,000 oz) and 13.5 million tonnes @ 1.05 g/t Au inferred (318,000 oz) (see February 10, 2009 press release).

Recent exploration work indicates that the stratigraphy and alteration of the main zone of gold mineralization at Viruela-La Cruz potentially extends an additional 1.2 km down-dip from the area encompassed in the current resource (to view Figures 1& 2, please click on the following link: This equates to a doubling in size of the area underlain by the target alteration horizon that hosts the gold mineralization. Drilling will follow up on gold results released July 16, 2008 from drill hole RC-08-343 (33.5 m grading 1.20 g/t Au), drilled 180 m west and RC-08-342 (16.8 m grading 1.18 g/t Au). In the north part of the property, rock types that host gold mineralization extend 500 metres to the west of the current resource onto the Rumorosa claim which was acquired in September 2008 and has yet to be drill tested (to view Figures 1 & 3, please click on the following link:

The Company is fully funded to undertake the planned drilling and to extend the program if results are positive. Additional metallurgical test work and a Preliminary Economic Assessment of the project are also being undertaken.
