New Guinea Gold Corporation: Excellent Drill Results from Weioko with 34m at 2.76g/t Gold Including 17m at 4.54g/t Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2009) - New Guinea Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NGG)(FRANKFURT:NG8) -

Results from the first seven holes of a 15 hole drill program at Weioko Project (Sehulea Property - 100% NGG) all intersected gold mineralisation with best results of 28m at 2.56g/t gold (including a 1m sample of 29.20g/t gold); 34m at 2.76g/t gold (including 3m at 16.27g/t gold); and 16m at 1.19g/t gold. Silver results ranged up to 5m at 11.52g/t silver, including 1m at 35.90g/t. All results are shown in the table below.

Bob McNeil, CEO and Chairman, commented "These results continue to enhance the value of the Weioko Project which is on Normanby Island, Papua New Guinea, approximately 10kms from NGG's premier project at Imwauna. Any development of Weioko is likely to be co-ordinated with the development of Imwauna. Of interest is the significant silver credit."

The Weioko Gold Project is a key New Guinea Gold (NGG) gold project that has been partly explored to date but the drilled mineralisation represents less than 5% of the known gold in soil anomalous area (see Press Release dated March 30, 2009).

NGG is presently completing the last hole of a modest 15 diamond core drill program. The results of these holes, when included with results from 20 RC holes and 23 diamond core holes already completed, should be sufficient to allow a resource estimation to be completed in accordance with the guidelines of NI 43-101. The results of all previous holes, using a 0.2g/t gold cut off are shown in Table 1 of the Press Release dated March 30, 2009.

Previous surveys have included soil geochemistry, rock chip, side looking radar and Induced Polarisation (IP) geophysical surveys. Geochemical soil anomalism is present over an area of 6 kms by 2 kms. Only a very small part of this anomalous area has been tested by either drilling or trenching.
