San Gold Expands Resources Study Scope to Include Cartwright Mine Feasibility

BISSETT, MB--(CCNMatthews - October 13, 2006) - San Gold Corporation (TSX-V: SGR)

Mr. Dale Ginn, President, reports:

Upon review of the recent positive exploration data on the Cartwright/Gabrielle Zones, San Gold has altered the scope of the resource/reserve report currently being prepared by ACA Howe Ltd. The scope of this report will now include the feasibility of developing and operating these deposits in order to rapidly increase production levels to the current mill capacity which now stands at 1250 tons per day. San Gold is also investigating changes to the crushing circuit that would substantially increase the milling capacity beyond 1250 tons per day. The original scope of the report was to estimate mineral reserves and resources for the Cartwright/Gabrielle and San Gold #3 zones, as well as to upgrade the San Gold #1 resource using new underground data. The new feasibility/reserve-resource report is expected to be completed mid November.

It is San Gold's intention to become a mid-tier gold producer by the end of 2007 and is aggressively pursuing all exploration and development options to do so.

The Qualified Persons for this project under National Instrument 43-101 are W. S. Ferreira, M.Sc., P.Geo., and D. Ginn, P.Geo.
