Sunridge Gold Accelerates Work at Emba Derho Based on Continuing Positive Drill Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 20, 2007) - Sunridge Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGC) reports results from 22 new drill holes, ED-101-D to ED-122-D, from the Emba Derho zinc/copper/gold VMS deposit and in addition announces that the Company is accelerating the work program at Emba Derho.

President and CEO Michael Hopley states, "Drill results such as these continue to show Emba Derho to be a very large zinc/copper/gold VMS deposit and potentially the most valuable discovery on the Asmara Project to date. Based on this we are accelerating metallurgical and environmental studies on the project as well as starting an internal resource estimate."

The new results reported are predominantly located to better define the southern mineralized zone (see attached map, http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/sgc0320.pdf). Drill holes ED-105 and 106 to 122 extended this southern mineralized zone 50 metres to the south, 200 metres along strike, and up to 250 metres in depth.

Emba Derho has been drilled over at least 950 metres in strike length with widths of massive sulphide mineralization varying from 10 to over 100 metres in a zone that extends over 400 metres wide and to a depth of 350 metres. Mineralization is still open to the east, to the west and at depth. The Emba Derho deposit is located about a 12 kilometre drive on good roads outside the capital city of Asmara, 6 kilometres from the Adi Nefas and Gupo deposits.

An aggressive drilling campaign is underway at Emba Derho with at least 18,000 metres of drilling planned for the first half of 2007. Currently two diamond drill rigs continue to operate at Emba Derho to further test the boundaries of the deposit and conduct in-fill drilling. Also, a deep ground electromagnetic (EM) geophysical survey accompanied with down-hole pulse EM are underway to help guide the drilling to define the extensions of the body of mineralization. Recent results from this work have outlined a strong conductor which coincides with the known mineralized zone and is still untested to the west and to the east.

There are now four significant zones of mineralization within the Asmara Project; Emba Derho, Debarwa, Adi Nefas and Gupo Gold. Complete 43-101 compliant reports were filed on SEDAR last week supporting independent resource calculations on the Debarwa and Adi Nefas VMS deposits that were announced on January 29th, 2007.
