New Asia Gold Corp Agrees to Acquire Additional Gold Leases With Proven Gold Reserves

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - December 19, 2008) - New Asia Gold Corp (PINKSHEETS: NWAG) is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire additional gold leases with proven and probable gold reserves in South America. The leases have proven gold reserves and at one time sections of the leases were in production. Independent reports show that at current prices for gold that the producing section of the leases can be brought back on production at a rate of 7000 to 8000 ounces of gold per year for a minimum of 5 years with an average extraction cost of $300 per ounce. This would generate the company revenues of $6.4 million with costs of $2.4 million per year.
