High Desert Gold Corporation Files First Quarter 2011 Financial Statements

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 28, 2011) - High Desert Gold Corporation ("HDG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HDG)(OTCQX:HDGCF) reports that it has released its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and the related management's discussion and analysis of financial position and results of operations ("MD&A").

As at March 31, 2011, the Company had working capital of US$2.4 million, including cash and cash equivalents of US$2.5 million. With this funding in place, the Company is in a strong financial position to pursue its current exploration strategy.

At the Gold Springs property located on the Nevada-Utah border, the Company is earning into its 60% position with Pilot Gold Corporation and will shortly be forming an operating company. Going forward, plans for further exploration at Gold Springs, with both partners contributing based on their proportionate shares, will be developed. HDG will be the managing partner with its 60% interest and will be directing the exploration plans through a committee to be made up of personnel from both companies. The Company expects to be announcing results from the current round of drilling at Gold Springs in July and plans on completing an NI 43-101 Technical Report by year end.

The Company has completed the transfer of all of its interests in the Canasta Dorada property to Highvista Gold Corp. ("HVG"). The Company plans to raise additional funds through the sale of HVG shares which should allow for further exploration work at Gold Springs and at the San Antonio property in Mexico in the second half of 2011.

Copies of the unaudited condensed interim financial statements and related MD&A can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

ABOUT HIGH DESERT GOLD

The Company is a mineral exploration company that acquires and explores mineral properties, primarily gold, copper and silver, in North America. The major properties held by HDG are the Gold Springs gold project situated along the border between Utah and Nevada and the San Antonio project in Sonora, Mexico. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource at Gold Springs and at San Antonio and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the targets at these two projects being delineated as a mineral resource.
