"Detour Gold Continues to Extend Gold Mineralization
at its Detour Lake Property in Northern Ontario, Canada
(DG-07-55 intersects 2.41 g/t over 54.3 m in West Pit)


Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the drill results of an additional 19 holes from its completed Phase I drilling program at its Detour Lake property in northern Ontario.

The objective of the 2007 drilling campaign of 100,000 metres (Phase I and II) is to better define and expand the mineral resource of 2006, using a 40 metre by 40 metre drill spacing. In Phase I, the Company completed 134 holes totaling 49,322 metres and has now released the assays for 76 holes (57%) with excellent and consistent results. The Phase II drilling campaign, which started on July 9, is well under way with five drill rigs running. As of yesterday, 91 holes totaling 29,180 metres have been completed in Phase II, for a combined total of 225 holes (78,502 metres) thus far in 2007.

With 57% of Phase I drill results now released, Detour Gold is confident in significantly expanding the current near-surface resource of 1.4 million ounces in the indicated category (20.0 million tonnes grading 2.14 g/t) and 2.0 million ounces of gold in the inferred category (35.4 million tonnes grading 1.80 g/t), using a US$450 per ounce gold price and a cut-off grade of 0.85 g/t gold. To date, the assay results are confirming the continuity of the gold mineralization along the known 2.5 kilometres east-west 200 metre wide corridor, extending from the West Pit to the Calcite Zone resource blocks. The current mineral resource is contained within two open pits (West Pit and Calcite Zone), located in the area of the former Detour Lake mine, which produced 1.8 million ounces of gold from 1983 to 1999. An updated mineral resource, in compliance with NI 43-101, is expected in the fourth quarter of 2007.

From the results announced today, nine holes (DG-07-63, 65, 66, 67, 74, 74A, 80, 82, and 84) were drilled in the Gap Zone (between the two US$450 open pits), two holes (DG-07-42, and 55) were drilled within the West Pit within an area of limited or no previous drilling, and eight holes (DG-07-64, 69, 72, 73, 75, 77, 97, and 100) were drilled in the Calcite Zone. The best mineralized (uncut) intervals encountered are shown below.

The mineralized corridor, tested over a strike length of 1.6 kilometres in Phase I, remains open west of the Calcite Zone and east of the West Pit along the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone (SLDZ). Gold mineralization within the corridor typically consists of multiple, subvertical, five to 25 metre wide zones grading between 1.0 to 3.0 g/t gold. High gold values are generally characterized by clusters of visible gold in quartz veins and pillow selvages within potassically altered mafic flows that contain a higher percentage of sulphide minerals.

From the results received to date, the Company has found additional gold mineralization in the Gap Zone (between the two US$450 open pits) and has successfully extended the Calcite Zone. Both areas had very limited drilling in the past. The results from the Gap Zone especially show the continuity of the mineralization between the West Pit and Calcite Zone.

The Company plans to start the technical work (metallurgical sampling and geotechnical drilling) necessary for a feasibility study on the Detour Lake project in the fourth quarter of 2007. Details on the current mineral resource are available in the Detour Lake Project December 2006 Technical Report posted on the Company's website or on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

Complete tables of results, surface and longitudinal plans and cross-sections for the Detour Lake deposit are posted on the Company's website www.detourgold.com /Projects/Detour Lake or http://www.hdgold.com/dgc/LatestDrillResults.asp or on the home page "Explore Detour Lake".

Detour Gold's exploration program is being managed by Project Manager, Mr. Roger Aubertin, P.Eng., a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Aubertin has verified and approved the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information. The Qualified Person for the resource estimate filed in December 2006 is Mr. Eric Kallio, P.Geo.

Samples are prepared and assayed at SGS Minerals Services in Don Mills, Ontario, Canada. Analysis for gold is done on sawn half core samples using fire assay (AA finish). Samples with higher grade gold (greater than 5 g/t) are re-assayed using the pulp and metallics procedures. Standard reference materials, blank and field duplicate samples are inserted prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the assay data. For additional information on Quality Assurance and Quality Control, refer to the press release dated April 11, 2007.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

This news release uses the terms 'indicated' and 'inferred' resources. Detour Gold advises investors that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, 'inferred resources' have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies except for Preliminary Assessment as defined under 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.
