Oro Gold Completes Eight Drill Holes at Trinidad

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 30, 2007) - Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) has completed an initial 8-hole diamond drill program on its Trinidad property, the Company's top priority target at its flagship Rosario Gold Belt property portfolio located in Sinaloa State, Mexico.

Eight holes of core drilling totaling 728 metres were completed at the San Miguel prospect. Assay results are pending. The San Miguel prospect is located 3.0 km southeast of the abandoned Trinidad open pit mine, which was previously operated by Eldorado Gold, and is now owned by Oro Gold.

The Trinidad mine was exploited for 2 years of a projected 4.1 year mine life, with an initial resource of 2,077,230 tonnes averaging 1.979 g/t Au and 5.444 g/t Ag, at a 0.5 g/t Au cutoff (see press release dated January 29, 2007). Two additional resource areas were outlined, but not put into production.

San Miguel is situated along strike within the 7-kilometre gold-bearing structural corridor that hosts the Trinidad mine. Previous exploration by Eldorado and Asarco was limited to surface trench and outcrop sampling along with 4 rotary drill holes. Rock sampling by Oro Gold returned up to 45.34 g/t Au over 2.1 metres (true width) in channel samples as previously reported. Drilling was completed in two areas and was designed to test mineralized faults hosting gold mineralization observed at surface, at depths of 50 to 150 metres. Difficult ground conditions presented technical challenges in drilling the targets, with 4 of the 8 holes being abandoned prior to reaching their target depth.

A preliminary geological interpretation of the drill core indicates continuity of mineralized structures at depth in holes 1, 2, 3, and 8, with widths averaging 5 metres. Holes 4 to 7 were lost or abandoned before reaching target depth. The drilling intersected altered quartz monzodiorite and fault structures characterized by quartz-sericite-pyrite (advanced argillic) alteration and quartz veining consistent with what is observed at surface.

A $1 million budget has been allocated to the Trinidad project for 2007, to be used for the following:

- 3,000 metres of core drilling to test the resource potential at the Trinidad mine and outlying targets

- Resource definition work

- Follow-up mapping and sampling of four target zones in which previous exploration identified high-grade gold anomalies in streams

- Airborne magnetic and radiometric survey over the core portion of the property, including the Trinidad mine and other known gold occurrences located within the district

Additional fieldwork including geological mapping and trench sampling is now being conducted near the Trinidad mine. Permitting is underway in anticipation of the 3,000 metre diamond drill program. The goal of Oro's 2007 exploration program at Trinidad is to identify and develop a resource that has significant upside to host a million ounce plus gold deposit.
