New Guinea Gold Announcement: 8m at 5.67 Gold Intersected Approximately 1km South of Sinivit Mine at Mengmut, Papua New Guinea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 29, 2011) -New Guinea Gold Corporation ("NGG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NGG)(FRANKFURT:NG8) announces that two reverse circulation holes at Mengmut, Papua New Guinea, south of the Sinivit Mine along the Sinivit structure, both intersected significant gold and copper (for location please see Figure 1 below and our press release dated May 3, 2011). Hole MRC01 intersected 12m at 2.39g/t gold and 0.3% copper, and Hole MRC02 intersected 14m gold at 3.80g/t and 0.1% copper. Complete results are given in the table below:

Note:

1. Cut offs used was 0.5g/t gold
2. True thickness not known
3. Collar so-ordinates are at approximately 9847500N, 393400E (see Figure 4 below). The holes are approximately 20m apart along strike

Results from two further holes are pending.

Bob McNeil, consultant geologist, commented: "these holes are particularly significant as they confirm possibly economic grades of gold over one kilometer south of the Sinivit Southern Oxide Pit. Hole MRC01 terminated at 20m depth with 1% copper assayed between 18m and 20m. The Mengmut zone was also defined as a possible sulphide and quartz system by the IP survey completed in 2010. A previous drill hole in the late 1980's in the general area also intersected gold plus copper and tellurium. The significant zones in the above holes will be assayed for other elements such as tellurium and molybdenum."
