Sunridge Gold Intercepts 150 Metres Grading 2.50% Zinc and 0.38% Copper at Emba Derho Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - Sunridge Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGC) reports ongoing positive drill results from the large zinc/copper/gold Emba Derho deposit, part of the Asmara Project, Eritrea. The Asmara Project hosts four deposits to date, Emba Derho, Debarwa, Adi Nefas and Gupo Gold and several additional high priority drill targets.

- Recent results from twenty-nine drill holes at Emba Derho continue to show wide intervals of mineralization from the zinc, copper and gold zones.

- Results continue to expand the size of the mineralized zone

- With the wide zones of zinc mineralization being close to surface, results reinforce management's belief that Emba Derho may be an open pit operation

DRILL HIGHLIGHTS:

- ED-140-D - 79.50 metres grading 2.81% Zinc

- ED-142-D - 109.02 metres grading 1.59% Zinc and 0.25% Copper

- ED-145-D - 127.19 metres grading 1.91% Zinc and 0.30% Copper

- ED-151-D - 150.30 metres grading 2.50% Zinc and 0.38% Copper

Drill holes ED-123-D, ED-125-D, ED-128-D, ED-132-D, ED-137-D, ED-141-D, ED-146-D, ED-147-D and ED-152-D show no significant results.

The purpose of the present drilling program at Emba Derho is to define the edges of the mineralized body as well as to better define, mostly on 40 metre centres, the known mineralization. As can be seen in the attached map, drill holes ED-126-D and ED-135 have extended to the west a shallow copper-rich zone and ED-153-D has extended to the south a shallow gold-rich zone (To view map please click on the following link: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/sgc0611.pdf). Many of the other best intersections reported are in the central part of the mineralized envelope. Drill holes that reported no significant assays were along the southern and northwest edge of the mineralized zone. Drilling continues at Emba Derho with 2 drills.

Currently, Sunridge staff are constructing a 3D geological model of the Emba Derho deposit with the goal of completing a resource estimate by early fall 2007. In addition a base-line environmental data collection program has commenced over the Emba Derho area.
