Key Gold Holding Acquires Souart Gold Property and Announces Appointment of New President

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 9, 2010) - Key Gold Holding Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KGH) ("Key Gold") is pleased to announce the arm's length acquisition of a 100% interest in the Souart gold property (the "Property") with historical resources estimated at 110,000 oz Au grading 6.2 g/t. This property acquisition is another step in implementing the corporation's new strategic mandate of focusing on copper-gold properties. Completion of this transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and all securities issued thereunder will be subject to a four month hold period.

The Souart Gold Property

The Property consists of 49 claims and is strategically located in the vicinity of Metanor, Amseco, Bonterra, and Eagle Hill near Lebelle-sur-Quevillon in the Province of Quebec. The Property is subject to 1% NSR royalty. It is easily accessible all year by road with good infrastructures in place.

The Urban-Barry area is the site of renewed interest following the release of excellent drill results by Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill") who reported 19.61 g/t Au (cut 3.51 g/t) Au over 33 m (Eagle Hill release of March 10, 2010). Noront Resources Ltd. ("Noront") previously reported grades of 800.1 to 1,792.9 g/t Au over 4.8 m (Noront release of December 1, 2006) and of 27.3 g/t Au over 14.4 meters (Noront release of June 8 2006) and more recently with Bonterra.

The Urban-Barry greenstone belt also hosts a number of gold deposits including the Lac Rouleau (Beaufield) to the northeast and the Barry deposit (Metanor).

A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

Pursuant to an arm's length purchase agreement made between Key Gold, Rivercrest Resources Inc. and Glen Eagle Resources Inc. (the "Agreement"), Key Gold will acquire a 100% interest in the Property in exchange for cash payments totaling $490,000, the issuance of 5,750,00 common shares of Key Gold and exploration expenditures totaling $1,750,000 in accordance with the following schedule:
