Jayden Resources Inc.: Drilling Commences at Silver Coin Project, B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) -Jayden Resources Inc., ("Jayden" or "the Company")(TSX:JDN) announces the commencement of drilling at its Silver Coin Project near Stewart, B.C. The drilling program is the key component of the Company's previously announced $5 million exploration and development program (see news release dated April 27, 2011). Two core rigs are currently working on the property.

The drilling program will be composed of approximately 80% infill and close offset holes, and 20% exploration holes outside of the current resource. The goals of the program are to upgrade the existing inferred resource to the measured and indicated categories, to develop a comprehensive geologic model for the deposit, to model the high grade zones with increased confidence, and to drill test several surface occurrences of gold mineralization outside of the resource area.

Jayden's President, Bob Felder commented, "This is the largest drilling program on the project in many years. Based on the encouraging results we received from our 2800m 2010 drilling program, which increased the total number of gold resource ounces by approximately 11%, we are very excited about the potential of this year's program. Our near term goal is to utilize the new drilling, metallurgical, engineering, geological and environmental data to advance the project to the prefeasibility stage."
