Reunion Gold Corporation Announces Drilling Results from the Antino 1 Project

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RGD) is pleased to announce results from the drill program at the Antino 1 project located in southeastern Suriname (see Figure 1 at the following address:

Core drilling at the Antino 1 gold project commenced in December 2006 and is currently ongoing. Assay results have been received for the first twelve holes which represent 1,845.6 metres of drilling.

The program is focusing on the Maripasula Creek Target Area (see previous release of November 14, 2006) and is currently defining and extending mineralized zones previously exploited by artisanal miners. Two locations called Felice (formerly called Para) and the Broko Laka (formerly called Filuca) are of particular interest (see Figure 2 at the following address:

Channel sampling at the Felice workings has already been reported. Horizontal channel sampling here returned several high grade intersections: 10.5 metres grading 4.38 g/t Au, with an included 6.0 metres of 7.16 g/t Au, 9.0 metres grading 4.71 g/t Au, 3.0 metres grading 4.55 g/t and 4.5 metres of 8.48 g/t Au. A table of the full channel sampling results was included in a news release dated August 20, 2006.

Five holes totaling 722.0 metres of core drilling have been completed at Felice. Drill hole location and other details are shown on the accompanying plan and cross section (See Figures 2 & 3). These first four holes were drilled to determine the continuity of mineralization along strike and at depth below the pit workings. The drilling has shown that saprolite extends to a vertical depth of 61 metres. Mineralization is characterized by centimeter to sub-metre scale quartz veins in a dilatant shear. The shear is hosted within a package of pelitic meta-sediments that is intruded by a coarse grained tonalitic "quartz-eye" porphyry. (See Figure 3 at the following address:

Assay results

Assay result highlights for all core holes drilled to date at both Felice and Broko Laka are provided in the table below. Best results to date at Felice have been 6.3 metres grading 8.54 g/t Au, 10.5 metres of 8.53 g/t Au with an included 6.0 metres at 12.49 g/t and 18.0 metres of 3.53 g/t Au including 4.5 metres of 10.02 g/t Au. An interval of 21 metres at 0.47 g/t Au in hole ADH012 demonstrates potential wide intersections of lower grade gold mineralization. Full assay results follow. Except for hole ADH004 all holes have been drilled perpendicular to the inferred strike direction of the mineralization, however, the orientation of the mineralized zones is not yet well understood so it is not possible to define true thicknesses of mineralization. Lengths shown below are intersection lengths, not true thicknesses.

The Assay results are available on the CCNMatthews website at the following address:

At Broko Laka, 7 holes have been completed for 1,123.6 metres of drilling. These holes were drilled to test the strike direction of the quartz vein swarm worked in the now abandoned underground artisanal workings, where museum quality specimens of visible gold hosted in quartz veins were recovered. Saprolite extends to a vertical depth of approximately 24 metres. Mineralization is characterized by centimeter to sub-metre scale quartz veins. These are hosted in peletic and graphitic metasediments which have been intruded by coarse grained tonalitic porphyry, similar to the Felice area. Attendant alteration comprises weak silicified haloes around quartz veins with minor, medium grained disseminated pyrite and sericite. Broko Laka drill hole locations are shown in Figure 2. The cross section (Figure 4) provides a perspective of the distribution of mineralization. Assay highlights for Broko Laka are 9.7 metres grading 2.75 g/t Au with an included 2.9 metres at 7.40 g/t Au.

(See Figure 4 at the following address:

Data from auger soil sampling to a depth of 3 metres, scout drilling, and trench sampling suggest that Felice and Broko Laka are part of a continuous mineralized system extending north west of Felice and south east of Broko Laka. The strike length of the suggested mineralized system is approximately 1,000 metres (see Figure 2).

The Company's priority for the current core drilling program is to determine continuity of structure and gold grade between Felice and Broko Laka. A series of nine holes in the area between the two prospects is underway. Additional drilling is planned to the north west of Felice and south east of Broko Laka and on a number of other locations identified within the Maripasula Creek target area. A second core drill is currently being mobilized to Antino to increase the rate of drilling.

Quality Assurance

The Antino 1 Project has put in place a rigorous QA/QC program consistent with National Instrument 43-101 and using best industry practice. Elements of the QA/QC program include chain of custody of samples, reference samples submitted with every batch of samples and a check assay program on a proportion of sample pulps with a second laboratory. The primary laboratory for these core samples has been The Assay Office in Paramaribo, Suriname while check assays have been undertaken by American Assay laboratories in Reno, Nevada. Results from the QA/QC program for the core drilling program cited above have to date been satisfactory.
