La Currita Mill Ships Second Load of Concentrate and Increases Recovery Rates

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - July 13, 2007) - Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) and (FRANKFURT: T8N) and Raven Gold Corp. are pleased to announce that a second load of concentrate totalling approximately 6.5 tonnes has been delivered to the smelter in Torreon.

In May of 2007, Tara Gold signed a Joint Venture Agreement with Raven Gold Corp giving Raven the option to earn up to 60% interest in the La Currita Groupings by making certain payments to Tara Gold, issuing 1,500,000 shares, making all remaining underlying property payments, which is now completely paid for, and spending a minimum of $4.25 million over 30 months.

The mill continues to be fine tuned and is now generating recovery rates of approximately 83% for Silver and 85% for Gold. Recent head grades have been averaging approximately 1.9 grams Gold and 223 grams Silver. Values for this shipment average approximately 700 grams Gold and 38 Kilos Silver per tonne of Concentrate.

Mr. Francis Biscan Jr., President of Tara Minerals Corp., stated, "We are pleased with the consistent high values we continue to see in our production ore. Our goal going forward will be to continue to increase production rates and recovery rates."

About La Currita

The La Currita Groupings includes 4 mines, a 300 ton/day operating floatation mill and stockpiled ore. The La Currita mine was in steady production from 1983 until 1998. A diamond drilling exploration program conducted in 1998 indicated grades of 2.59 g/t Au and 200 g/t Ag. Existing mines and mineralized structures hold potential to increase tonnage through systematic exploration. The area surrounding La Currita has numerous mines and recent substantial discoveries. Adjacent to the La Currita holdings, Palmarejo recently merged with Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation and Bolnisi Gold NL, in a transaction valued at approximately US$1.1 billion, creating the world's leading primary silver producer. In addition, about 20 miles to the SE is the 170,000 ounce/year Glamis Gold's El Sauzal gold mine and 40 miles to the North is Gammon Lake Resource's Ocampo Gold-Silver Project with a projected 270,000 gold-equivalent ounces/year.
