New Guinea Gold Corporation Announces That Gold Anomaly Intersected 82m at 1.62g/t Gold in Their First Drill Hole at Crater Mountain, Papua New Guinea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - New Guinea Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NGG)(FRANKFURT:NG8) - Gold Anomaly Ltd, an Australian Securities listed Company (GOA), operator of the Crater Mountain Joint Venture, announced on March 29, 2011 that they had intersected 82m at 1.62g/t gold within 284m at 0.82g/t gold in their first drill hole at the Crater Mountain Project.

Bob McNeil, Acting CEO of New Guinea Gold, commented: "NGG holds a 10% free carried interest to Bankable Feasibility in the Crater Mountain Project. NGG and GOA have recently signed a Letter of Intent whereby GOA will acquire the above interest in exchange for 31,250,000 GOA shares. Issuance of shares is awaiting approval of the transaction by the PNG Minister for Mines." Bob McNeil also noted that Mr Peter Mcnab, Exploration Director of Gold Anomaly commented as follows: "The results are highly encouraging as they confirm the presence of a major alterated and mineralised system with the potential to define a large bulk tonnage of low grade gold mineralisation, with zones of higher grade gold mineralisation. The mineralisation bears similarities to that found at Barrick's Porgera Gold Mine and to Newcrest-Harmony's Link Zone at Wafi-Golpu and their Hidden Valley Mine. Above 306m depth, these assays include significant intervals with average assay values above 1.5g/t Au totaling 87m at 2.04g/t Au and above 0.4g/t Au totaling 127m at 1.57g/t Au. Given that Crater Mountain is above creek level the project has the benefit of having lower cut off grades in any economic evaluation.

The Crater Mountain system is a large gold system and the above shares will give NGG great flexibility in obtaining value for its interest in the project." The complete release by Gold Anomaly is at
