Great West Gold, Inc. to File Late

Company to File Its Annual Report Form 10KSB Late, Symbol Change

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 21, 2005 -- Great West Gold, Inc. (OTC BB: GWGO) confirms that it is late in the filing of its Annual Report Form 10KSB for the year ended December 31, 2004. This has resulted in the "E" annotation to its trading symbol. The Company will trade under the symbol GWGOE until the date of this filing.

The delay in this filing is a result of the Company's recently appointed Auditors requiring further time to accurately complete the year end Audit. It is expected that this will be completed in and during next week and at that time the "E" annotation will be removed and the Trading Symbol will revert to that of "GWGO."

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
