Taku Commences Airborne Geophysical Surveys on Seven White Gold District Properties in Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2010) - Taku Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAK) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Precision Geosurveys Inc. of Vancouver, British Columbia to complete high resolution, multi-sensor, airborne geophysical surveys over all seven of Taku's properties in the White Gold district of Yukon. Precision has significant airborne geophysical survey experience, having acquired data on over 70 surveys since 2007.

The geophysical data will be collected at 100 meter line spacings at a nominal survey height of 30m with state -of- the-art instrumentation attached to the helicopter. It is anticipated that approximately 5500 line kilometers of data will be collected. The data will be processed with industry-standard Geosoft software. The high resolution magnetic data will assist in interpreting bedrock units, structure, and alteration. The radiometric system consisting of a multichannel spectrometer with large gamma ray sensing crystals will be used to map lithologies and alteration. It is expected that the surveys will commence by September 23, 2010 and be complete by October 7, 2010.

"The airborne geophysical surveys are part of our systematic, integrated exploration work program in the Dawson area designed to generate top-quality drill targets," stated Zak Dingsdale, President and CEO.
