Oro Gold Commences Drilling at Trinidad

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 27, 2007) - Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) has commenced diamond core drilling at its 100% owned Trinidad property, located in Sinaloa State, Mexico. A key property in Oro Gold's Rosario Gold Belt portfolio, Trinidad is considered to be the Company's top priority project in Mexico.

The first round of drilling will include approximately 900 metres of core drilling in 8 holes. The targets to be tested in the first round are 3.0 km to the southeast and along strike of the gold-bearing structural trend that hosts the past producing Trinidad open pit mine, recently acquired by Oro Gold. Prior exploration in this area was limited to surface trench and outcrop sampling along with 4 rotary drill holes completed by Eldorado and Asarco.

"Trinidad is the most important property in our Rosario Gold Belt portfolio," stated Eric Grill, VP Exploration. "This drill program marks the start of our evaluation of the resource potential of the under-developed Trinidad mine district."

The area was selected based on multi-drainage basin silt sample Au results returning 593.3 to 8058.7 ppb Au from a 215 Ha area, within a broader (2.5 by 4.5 km) zone of intense advanced argillic alteration in granodiorite. Field mapping shows gold mineralization is associated with quartz and specularite-hematite veins. Sampling returned up to 45.34 g/t Au and 709 g/t Ag over 2.1 meters true width in these target areas.
