VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - Miranda Gold Corp. ("Miranda") (TSX VENTURE:MAD)(OTCBB:MRDDF)(FRANKFURT:MRG)(BERLIN:MRG) announces the appointment of Mr. Ian Slater to the Board of Directors. Mr. Slater was recommended to Miranda by the Lundin Group of Companies following the recent financing in which Global NR Holding SA, a Luxembourg based holding company which is controlled by the Lundin Family, took at 5% interest in the Company.

Mr. Slater is the President and CEO of Fortress Minerals Corp., a gold exploration company which forms part of the Lundin Group of Companies. Mr. Slater has been involved in the gold mining industry for 16 years and most recently was a partner with Ernst & Young where he led their mining practice.

Miranda is pleased to have Mr. Slater join the Board of Directors and we look forward to both the Lundin association he brings to Miranda as well as his individual skill sets.
