Jayden Completes Earn-In for an Additional 10% Interest in Silver Coin

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2011) - Jayden Resources Inc. ("Jayden" or "the Company") (TSX:JDN) reports that it has completed the expenditure requirements to earn an additional 10% interest in the Silver Coin project, bringing the Company's ownership to 80%.

Pursuant to a July 2009 agreement with JV partner Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. ("Mountain Boy"), Jayden increased its ownership in Silver Coin to 70% with an option to acquire an additional 10% by spending $4M on the project by July 2014. With Jayden's aggressive 2011 drilling and development program on Silver Coin, the Company has fast tracked the completion of this earn-in requirement, bringing the Company's interest in the project to 80%.

As recently announced (News Release, September 8), due to excellent progress this year, Jayden has expanded its 2011 program at Silver Coin by adding 3,000m to its original 15,000m diamond drill program. Much of this new drilling is designed to test areas outside of the currently defined resource. To date, the Company has drilled 14,892m and reported assays on 44 of the 98 holes completed this year. During the 2010 drill program, the Company announced that results from extension drilling to the north of previous drilling expanded the footprint of gold mineralization at Silver Coin by 160 meters. This step-out drilling to the north demonstrated that mineralization persists in this direction, and remains open.

Bob Felder, Jayden's President, commented, "We are very pleased to have increased our ownership in our flagship project. This is another milestone for Jayden which further enhances the Company's strong motivation to advance the project to prefeasibility and move closer to production."
