New Guinea Gold Corporation: Sinivit Drilling Continues to Define Near Surface High Grade Gold to 90g/t

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2007) - New Guinea Gold Corporation ("NGG" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:NGG) reports that further drilling continues to define wide intersections of high grade gold within the confines of the Southern Oxide Pit. Some of the better intersections are shown below and all intersections above a cut off of 0.5g/t are listed in Table 1.

Note:

1. The surface sample, 0-2m in hole 109 returned 91.8g/t gold
2. Hole SCG106 terminated in 24.3g/t gold over last 2m sample
3. Hole SCG107 terminated in 4.79g/t gold over last 2m sample
4. Hole SCG113 terminated in 14.4g/t gold over the last 2m sample
5. Hole SCG118 terminated in 89.7g/t gold over the last 2m sample.


Bob McNeil, CEO and Chairman commented: "This drilling program of 119 holes has defined a previously unknown high grade gold zone within the resource (and proposed pit) which extends over a length of 80m between 9852N and 9930N, varies up to 10m in width, extends to the surface in part and below the limit of drilling at 30m, also in part. Individual intersections are not true widths as gold appears to occupy a steeply dipping zone".

All drill holes are Reverse Circulation. Samples are bulked in two metre intervals, partially prepared on site by splitting to approximately 4 kgs in weight each, then dispatched to accredited laboratory ALS - Chemex in Townsville, Australia for further preparation and assay.

Investors are cautioned that the development of Sinivit is proceeding in the absence of a full feasibility study. These evaluations are preliminary in nature and are based entirely on indicated mineral resources, which have not been categorized as mineral reserves. There is no assurance that the operating and financial projections in the preliminary assessment will be realized. Mineral resources that are not reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Measured and indicated mineral resources are that part of a mineral resource of which quantity and grade can be estimated with a level of confidence sufficient to allow the application of technical and economic parameters to support mine planning and evaluation of the economic viability of the deposit.

The technical data in this release was prepared by or under the supervision of Robert D. McNeil, CEO of New Guinea Gold Corporation. Mr McNeil has an MSc in Geology, 45 years mining industry experience, is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, and meets the requirements of NI 43-101 for a qualified person.
