New Guinea Gold Corporation/NMC Mining Corp Joint Venture Reports Widespread Gold in Rock at Kela's Prospect, Northwest of Imwauna Project, Papua New Guinea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2010) - New Guinea Gold Corporation ("NGG" or the "Company"), (TSX VENTURE:NGG)(FRANKFURT:NG8) on behalf of the NMC/NGG Joint Venture, carried out extensive surface rock chip sampling in the Kela's area to the northwest and north of the Imwauna gold resource (see accompanying figure) showing anomalous gold in soils and the location of Imwauna.

This sampling, which is expected to be the pre-cursor for excavator trenching and drill testing returned many significant results – 20% of all samples were greater than 4g/t gold and 42% were greater than 1g/t gold. These results are encouraging and confirm that other parts of the general Imwauna area could contain significant gold resources.

All sample results are given in the table below click here to illustrate the large number of significant results.

All samples are prepared in Lae PNG by Intertek Ltd and analysed at accredited laboratory Intertek Ltd, Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Imwauna Project is beneficially held 50% by NGG and 50% by NMC. NMC may earn a further 50% of the project by spending on exploration a further $7,550,000 before June 22, 2013. NMC must spend approximately $2 million before June 22, 2011. NMC plans to re-commence drill testing in mid November 2010.

NMC holds approximately 27 million shares and warrants in NGG and NGG in turn holds 15,682.269 shares in NMC. The latter shareholding represents approximately 31% of the issued shares in NMC.
