Seabridge Gold to Drill 15,000 Meters at KSM Project in 2008

$7.6 Million Program to Upgrade/Expand Mitchell Zone and Test for Higher Grade

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Seabridge Gold (TSX VENTURE:SEA)(AMEX:SA) announced today that it will undertake a $7.6 million, 15,000 meter core drill program at its 100% owned Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell ("KSM") project, located near Stewart, British Columbia, Canada. The program, expected to commence in June, is designed to improve the value of the asset by exploring for higher grade zones, upgrading more of the remaining inferred mineral resources to the indicated category and further expanding the Mitchell zone.

Seabridge President and CEO Rudi Fronk noted "last year's program demonstrated that inferred resources can be upgraded to the indicated category and that substantially higher grades appear to be available at depth. This year's program will focus on defining the higher grade zones which have the potential to significantly improve project economics in the early years of production. We will also complete upgrading resources at the Mitchell zone to the point where a feasibility study can be undertaken."

The key objectives of the program are as follows:

Objective #1: Upgrade 231 million inferred tonnes of mineral resources at the Mitchell zone containing 5.2 million ounces of gold and 760 million pounds of copper to the indicated category. To achieve this objective, 12 infill drill holes (totaling at least 5,200 meters) will be completed in the heart of the Mitchell zone.

Objective #2: Extend the Mitchell zone resource model down dip and to the north to capture potential new resources with better than average Mitchell grade. Approximately two-thirds of this new resource is expected to be in the indicated category. To achieve this objective, eight drill holes (totaling at least 6,500 meters) will be drilled below and between the northern most holes completed to date. Holes are also designed to follow-up on the down dip extension of higher than average grade material identified in the 2007 drilling at the Mitchell zone, including:



M-07-24E 440.8 meters to 597.3 meters 0.91 g/t gold and 0.26% copper
(156.5 meters)
M-07-35 138.0 meters to 682.1 meters 1.00 g/t gold and 0.27% copper
(544.1 meters)
M-07-45 300.9 meters to 555.0 meters 1.19 g/t gold and 0.23% copper
(254.1meters)
M-07-47 397.0 meters to 442.6 meters 0.91 g/t gold and 0.29% copper
(45.6 meters)
M-07-54 122.0 meters to 422.0 meters 1.03 g/t gold and 0.29% copper
(300.0 meters)
M-07-56 106.0 meters to 238.0 meters 1.02 g/t gold and 0.18% copper
(132.0 meters)
M-07-58 188.0 meters to 407.3 meters 0.95 g/t gold and 0.35% copper
(219.3 meters)


Objective #3: Explore the down-dip projection of the Sulphurets Gold Zone for a potential higher-grade, bulk mineable underground zone. Two holes (totaling at least 1,500 meters) will be drilled to test the depth extension of the Sulphurets where drill hole S-06-04 found a 118 meter wide breccia zone that averaged 0.82g/t Au and 0.54% Cu. Alteration intensity and metal grades seem to be increasing in the breccia zone to the north and west. Expanding the Sulphurets zone down-dip in the breccia zone has the potential to identify early, higher grade production for the project. Potential also exists to evaluate a bulk underground target that could be exploited to the north of the conceptual Sulphurets open pit.

Objective #4: Test the potential continuity of high-grade mineralization between the Iron Cap and Mitchell Deposits and evaluate this potential as a bulk mineable underground target. Previous drilling on the Iron Cap target and in the North Mitchell area encountered wide-spread gold and copper concentrations. These results imply a genetic and temporal relationship with the Mitchell zone. A single drill hole totaling 1200 meters is proposed to evaluate the continuity between these two zones and the potential grade increase at depth on the Iron Cap target. Select drill intercepts from the Iron Cap zone drilled by Falconbridge in 2005 include:



IC-05-01 3.3 meters to 75.3 meters 0.88 g/t gold and 0.30% copper
(72.0 meters)
IC-05-02 168.9 meters to 250.0 meters 0.70 g/t gold and 0.20% copper
(81.1 meters)
IC-05-04 205.9 meters to 248.1 meters 0.74 g/t gold and 0.29% copper
(42.2 meters)


The KSM project represents one of the world's largest undeveloped gold/copper projects. The following table summarizes NI 43-101 compliant mineral resources for all three zones at the KSM project using a 0.50 gram per tonne (g/t) gold equivalent cutoff grade (see news releases dated January 10, 2008 and February 20, 2008 for details):
