New Guinea Gold Intersects 5.82 g/t Gold Over 17.2 m and 10.35 g/t Gold Over 1.9 m in the Kavursuki Zone, Sinivit Project, Papua New Guinea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 4, 2011) - New Guinea Gold Corporation ("NGG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NGG)(FRANKFURT:NG8) has received assay results from diamond drill holes KVD026 and KVD027 in the Kavursuki zone, which is on strike with the Sinivit Mine and 1.5 to 2.0 km to the north. From a depth down hole of 22.7 m the mineralized zone, KVD026 averaged 5.82 g/t gold over a core length of 17.2 m and included a high grade zone of 4.1 m at 19.04 g/t. KVD027 intersected 10.35 g/t gold over a 1.9 m core length starting at a depth of 30.7 m.

Results from holes KVD022, 023 and 024, completed earlier in the year and located 25 m to 100 m south of the more recent holes, are also reported. Assay results are shown in the table below; composited sections have been calculated with using a cutoff grade, as shown.

Holes KVD026 and KVD027 were drilled near the northern end of the Kavursuki zone to intersect the mineralized zone in the vicinity of trenches 20 and 21. These trenches exposed mineralized zones of 20 m grading 8.08 g/t gold (including 4 m at 20.35 g/t gold) and 12 m at 12.29 g/t gold (including 6m at 18.98 g/t gold). KVD026 is on the same section and approximately 30m east of KVD025 (see Figure 1 and Company news releases dated April 13, 2011 and June 29, 2011). KVD027 is about 60 m north of this section.

Bob McNeil, Consultant commented: "these drill holes extend the high grade zone at Kavursuki. They further confirm the potential of this one kilometer long zone to the north of the Sinivit Mine to be equal to or exceed the original Sinivit oxide zone".

Drill core is logged and split (all by saw) on site with half core being dispatched to, and assayed by accredited laboratory ALS–Chemex in Townsville, Australia.
