Taku Identifies Prospective Gold-in-Soil Geochemical Anomalies on Montana Property in Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 22, 2011) - Taku Gold Corp. ("Taku") (TSX VENTURE:TAK) is pleased to announce final results from a preliminary deep auger-type, soil geochemical survey completed over the 292-claim (6065 hectare) Montana property in early June 2011. The Montana property is located approximately 55km south of Dawson City in the Klondike gold camp of Yukon. The goal of the survey was to identify areas prospective for detailed soil geochemical, prospecting and sampling work.

A total of 1608 soil samples were collected along ridges and spurs at 50m intervals. Three anomalous gold areas were identified. The first area, located on the west side of the property, returned a maximum gold value of 309ppb. The second area, located in the southwest corner of the property, returned a maximum value of 123ppb Au. The third area is located in the southeastern corner of the property and returned a maximum gold value of 360ppb Au. Detailed sampling is planned at 50m stations on lines spaced 100m apart in order to follow up these encouraging results. Distribution maps for gold, silver, arsenic and antimony will be posted on the Taku website shortly.

"These are good numbers and will be followed up with detailed soil sampling grids to define potential drill targets," comments Zak Dingsdale, President.

All soil samples were collected by Breakaway Exploration Management Inc. All analytical work was completed at Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. ("Acme") in Vancouver, British Columbia. Acme is accredited under ISO 9001. Soil samples were prepared by drying and sieving 100g to -80 mesh, and then analyzed for 36 elements (including gold) by 15 gram Aqua Regia digestion, ICP-MS finish.
