Miranda Gold Corp.: Three Hundred DAME Claims Staked
in Kobeh Valley, South Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 25, 2005) - Miranda
pleased to announce that it has staked 300 claims (9.7 square miles) in
Kobeh Valley on the south end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka ("Cortez")
Trend in Nevada. In search of lower-plate structural targets at
relatively shallow depths that could host gold mineralization, Miranda
has been evaluating geophysical data (specifically, filtered gravity),
mercury gas survey data, and other exploration data-sets of the Kobeh
Valley. The results of this study and recent competitor activities in
the Kobeh Valley prompted Miranda's immediate claim staking.

Newmont Mining Corporation and most recently Placer Dome US (February
15, 2005, Bravo Venture Group Inc. news release) have made significant
property acquisitions through aggressive staking campaigns in Kobeh
Valley. The location of these latter two claim groups and Miranda's
newly staked DAME claim group, which are all located on a series of
distinct targets, suggest the presence of a discrete WNW-trend between
the Gold Bar deposit (historic resource of 1 M oz Au) and Barrick Gold
Corporation's Archimedes Mine (historic resource of 1.7 M oz Au).

Bravo Venture Group Inc.'s news release of its sampling of oil well
cuttings states that lower-plate units including the Roberts Mountain
Formation occur at depth in Kobeh Valley. Bravo further suggests that
the significant gold they assayed from gravel at the basement interface
could represent historic erosion and transport of mineralized detritus
from nearby gold deposits. This mineralization implies the larger Kobeh
Valley area may contain buried gold deposits.

The recent competitor staking activities, including the announcement by
Bravo Venture Group Inc. on February 15, 2005, prompted Miranda to
accelerate its ongoing evaluation of Kobeh Valley. Miranda conducted a
helicopter-supported land reconnaissance and staking program, which
resulted in the DAME project. The DAME project is adjacent to Placer
Dome claims (to the west) and Newmont claims (to the north). The claim
group extends approximately 7 miles (11.7 kilometers) to the southeast
off the north flank of Lone Mountain in the direction of the Archimedes

Miranda feels that any large Carlin-type gold system beneath Kobeh
Valley would likely produce a northwest-southeast-trending,
district-scale array of en echelon deposits associated with WNW, NNW and
NE-trending fault blocks. Miranda's DAME claims are located on such
fault intersections and basement highs as suggested by filtered gravity
data. Miranda is pleased to aggressively compete in and quickly expose
our shareholders to this district-scale exploration play developing on
the south end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend.

Miranda Gold Corp is a gold exploration company active in Nevada with an
emphasis on generating projects within the Battle Mountain-Eureka and
Cortez Trends. Miranda performs its own grass roots exploration and then
employs a joint venture business model on its projects in order to
maximize exposure to discovery while minimizing exploration risk.
