Oro Gold Completes Technical Report for Cimarron Property, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 20, 2006) - Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) has filed and received TSX Venture Exchange approval for, a National Instrument 43-101 report entitled, "Exploration Results for the Cimarron Gold Property, Sinaloa State, Mexico".

The Company is also pleased to announce that property expenditures totaling more than US $500,000 have now been incurred at Cimarron, within the first two years of a four year option agreement with joint venture partner Minera Camargo S.A. de C.V. Upon making a planned final cash payment of US $20,000 by December 31, 2006, bringing total cash payments to US $50,000, the Company will have acquired an undivided 51% interest in the Cimarron property. Oro Gold has a further option to increase its undivided interest in the Cimarron property to 100% by incurring additional property expenditures of US$1,000,000 by the end of 2008 and making an additional one-time payment of US$250,000.

Cimarron is a 6,644 hectare exploration-stage gold property acquired in 2005. Subsequent property acquisitions and open ground staking increased the total land package to 8,195 hectares. Cimarron is situated in southern Sinaloa state, 50 km east of Mazatlan and 10 km northwest and on trend with the historic multi-million ounce past-producing Rosario gold and silver mine. Local infrastructure is well developed and property access is excellent.

Surface geochemical testing of the property has produced very encouraging results to date. These include highly anomalous stream sediment gold values above 200 ppb and up to 2,245 ppb Au over a 20 km2 area, high-grade channel samples of up to 11 g/t Au over 3 metres, and grab samples of up to 128.4 g/t Au. An extensive soil geochemical survey has identified 5 significant gold/copper surface anomalies up to 2.5 km2 in size with values greater than 100 ppb Au. A high-priority drill target has been defined at the Veteranos prospect.

An aggressive follow-up program is proposed at Cimarron, in conjunction with exploration work currently underway on other Oro Gold properties in the Rosario Gold Belt. Proposed additional exploration expenditures recommended for the next phase of work at Cimarron total $365,000, to include focused field work, airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys, and diamond drilling.

The full report is available on the Company's website www.orogoldresources.com and was prepared by Michelle Robinson, P.Geo., who is a qualified person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
