Sunridge Gold Corp.: Update on Drill Program, Asmara Project, Eritrea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 28, 2005) - Sunridge Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGC) provides a progress report on the 10,000 metre diamond drill program which commenced July 5, 2005 on the Adi Nefas Gossan VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) prospect, part of the Asmara Project in Eritrea. The Company is currently drilling Hole # NG-014, the eighth hole thus far in the program. The drill is operating two shifts per day (24 hours) thus it is expected that a significant amount of assay results will be available in mid to late September. Given the favorable topography of the Asmara Project, the rainy season has minimal impact on the drill program.

Drilling to date has focused on following up the previously reported high-grade gold, copper and zinc drill results at the Adi Nefas Gossan VMS prospect with both infill and step out drilling. As part of this program drilling will also drill test down-dip and along strike extensions at the high-grade copper/gold Debarwa Deposit and drill test satellite targets recently defined by geological mapping and geophysics on the Debarwa and Medrizien licenses.

Sunridge Gold Corp. is a mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration, discovery and development of precious and base metal projects. The Company is currently focused on the Asmara Joint Venture Project in Eritrea and continues to evaluate exploration and advanced opportunities elsewhere. The Company has 22.4 million shares outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol SGC.
