Taku Progresses With Geophysical and Geochemical Surveys in White Gold Area of Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2010) - Taku Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAK) is pleased to announce that Precision Geosurveys Inc. of Vancouver, British Columbia has completed high-definition, airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys over the Rosebute, Dan, Quartz, Sulphur, Montana and Wounded Moose properties all located approximately 45km south and southeast of Dawson City in the White Gold district of Yukon. The AM and Portland properties were not surveyed due to heavy snow conditions that would have affected the quality of the radiometric data. It is anticipated that these two properties will be flown in May or June 2011.

Taku is also pleased to announce that Ground Truth Exploration Inc. of Dawson City, Yukon has finished a 5000- sample deep auger-type soil geochemical survey on the Rosebute property. Furthermore Ground Truth has moved its crew to the Dan property and is about halfway through a 5000-sample soil survey on that property. It is expected that work at Dan will be complete by the end of next week.

"We are grateful to both Precision and Ground Truth for working hard late into the season in order to collect as much data as possible for Taku," comments Zak Dingsdale, President.

Mark Fekete, PGeo, is the designated qualified person as defined in Section 1.2 in and for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the preparation of this release.

On Behalf of the Board, Taku Gold Corp.
