Lincoln Gold Corp.: Corporate Update

CARSON CITY, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - March 24, 2005) - LINCOLN GOLD CORP.
(OTCBB:LGCP) Lincoln Gold is pleased to announce that it has completed
the 2nd tranche of the previously announced private placement. Lincoln
Gold Corp. has raised an additional US$ 947,400. The net proceeds from
this placement will be used for ongoing gold exploration work in Nevada
and for general working capital.

The Company has completed a detailed soil sampling program at the Hannah
project, located 18 miles west of Gabbs in Mineral County, Nevada. The
program comprised of the collection of 132 soil samples, which have been
sent in for assay testing. The Company plans to release results as soon
as they are available.

The Company has also staked an additional 85 new claims at the Jenny
Hill project for a total of 182 claims. The Jenny Hill property lies
on-trend between the Paradise Peak and Rawhide mines in a remote area of
Gabbs Valley. Two styles of gold mineralization are present on the
property; Carlin-type and gold skarn. Numerous samples have been
collected from the property that indicate the potential for significant
ore-grade gold mineralization. A partial ground magnetic survey reveals
major concealed structures which possibly control gold mineralization.
The Jenny Hill project has potential for bulk mineable gold
mineralization and is considered one of Lincoln's best properties.
Geological mapping is currently underway at the Jenny Hill property.

Lincoln now has the financing to proceed with its plans to aggressively
explore its several gold projects this year, including completion of
detailed surface work, geophysical programs, rock chip sampling and
drilling.

Lincoln Gold Corp. is a gold exploration company focused in Nevada with
several gold exploration 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 deposits, including: Buffalo Valley, JDS, Jenny Hill, Hannah, and
Lincoln Flat.
