Skygold Announces 2.4 Million Unit Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2007) - Skygold Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SKV) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will sell to Canadian resident investors on a non-brokered private placement basis up to 2,400,000 units at a price of $1.30 per unit for to raise gross proceeds of up to $3,120,000. Each unit will consist of one flow through common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share at a price of $1.75 per share for a period of 12 months following closing of the offering.

Finders' fees payable in cash and/or units and non-transferable finder's warrants may be payable in respect of a portion or all of the units sold under the offering.

The flow-through funds raised from the sale of the units will be used for general exploration expenditures on the Company's Spanish Mountain project and will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act) that will be renounced to investors for the 2007 taxation year.

Mr. Fulcher states: "This funding will ensure a continued aggressive exploration program at Spanish Mountain through the merger process with Wildrose. Three drills will continue the exploration at Spanish Mountain in early January 2008 with plans currently underway to add a fourth drill shortly after start up."

The offering and the payment of any finders' fees thereunder are subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with this offering will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with securities regulation.
