MacMillan Gold Special Meeting Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2008) - George A. Brown, President and CEO of MacMillan Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MMG), is pleased to announce that MacMillan has received the proxy count for up to and including October 9, 2008 from Equity Transfer & Trust Company. October 9, 2008 represents the date which is 48 hours or less by which proxies needed to be deposited with the transfer agent in order to be valid for the October 14, 2008 Special Meeting of shareholders. The transfer agent has reported that over 15,000,000 shares have been voted and that less than 1% are opposed to either of the two motions.

The Company is therefore extremely confident that the motion to continue MacMillan Gold under the laws of Alberta and the motion to complete the Arrangement as described in the September 12, 2008 Joint Information Circular as filed on SEDAR will both be passed on October 14, 2008 with an excess over the required two-thirds of the votes.

The Arrangement is also subject to the approval of the Duran Ventures Inc. shareholders at the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders of Duran on October 14, 2008, the Final Order of the Court approving the Arrangement (scheduled for October 15, 2008 at 1 pm Alberta time), and the TSX Venture providing final approval of the existing conditional approval.
