Lincoln Gold Begins Drilling at Lincoln Flat Gold Property, Nevada

CARSON CITY, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - July 7, 2005) - LINCOLN GOLD CORP (OTCBB:LGCP) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling on the Company's 100%-controlled, early-stage Lincoln Flat gold property in the southern Singatze Range, approximately 8 miles northwest of the copper mining town of Yerington, NV. Lincoln plans to drill 9 reverse-circulation holes using a track-mounted drill rig for a total footage of at least 4,500 feet. Drilling will focus on 5 areas defined by anomalous gold in bedrock and soils. Four holes will test a gold-hematite breccia target in the immediate vicinity of the old "Iron Cap" exploration adit where dump material contains ore-grade gold. Favorable hematite breccia is exposed at the surface on a hill behind the old workings and the mineralized area has never been drilled. Two angle holes are planned to test a structural zone approximately 1400 feet northeast of the "Iron Cap" target. The structural zone locally contains gold values in bedrock exceeding 1 ounce per ton and was exploited in the 1930's by shallow underground workings; this target has never been drilled. Exploration drilling will also test 3 geochemical gold targets that are widely spaced on the claim block, where property access and logistics are excellent.

In addition, on July 5, Lincoln initiated a mercury soil gas survey on its JDS gold property in the Cortez Trend, Nevada. Mercury soil gas has been demonstrated to accumulate over Carlin-type gold deposits within the Trend. Eight survey lines consisting of a total of about 250 sample stations will traverse the property. Work should be completed about mid-July and results will be plotted in an effort to help determine drill targets over buried "lower plate" host rocks which are favorable for large gold deposits.

Lincoln Gold Corp. is a US based gold-silver exploration company located in Nevada with several projects in various stages of exploration. Lincoln Gold presently owns, or has options to acquire a 100% interest in five projects in Nevada, all with potential for discovery of large gold-silver deposits, including: Buffalo Valley, JDS, Jenny Hill, Hannah, and Lincoln Flat.
