VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 26, 2007) - Stikine Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SKY) ("Stikine") announces that drilling of its third exploration hole at the Sullivan Deeps Project recently reached a depth of 2,424 metres (m) (7,952 feet).

Project Manager, Paul Ransom, P.Geo., a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reported that the hole has intersected the base of the Fringe Marker at a depth of 2,413 m (7,916 ft).

According to the Province of British Columbia, the Sullivan Mine produced approximately 17.5 billion lbs of zinc (Zn), 18.5 billion lbs of lead (Pb) and 298 million ozs of silver (Ag) along with other associated metals. Using current metal prices, Sullivan life-of-mine production would be valued at over US$40 billion.
