Taku Samples Up to 2.6gpt Gold in Soil on Montana Property in Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLOMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2011) - Taku Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAK) is pleased to announce follow-up deep auger-type, soil geochemical survey results completed over the 292-claim (6,065 hectare) Montana property in mid-August 2011. The Montana property is located approximately 55km south of Dawson City in the Klondike gold camp of Yukon. A total of 1,760 soil samples were collected from seven grids at 50m intervals on grid lines spaced at 100m apart in order to follow up positive gold results obtained by ridge and spur sampling as previously announced (Taku Press Release – July 25, 2011).

The most significant results were obtained from an area located in the north central part of the property on a low ridge south of Bismarck Creek where two highly anomalous samples were collected including 2.62 grams per tonne gold (gpt Au) and 0.51gpt Au. This area also shows highly anomalous arsenic results. A second area located on a ridge south of the junction of Montana Creek and Steele Fork in the northeast corner of the property shows a strong arsenic anomaly covering 85 hectares. Maximum gold values up to 0.06gpt Au were found in this arsenic rich zone. Two other areas with highly anomalous arsenic values were identified at the headwaters of Steele Fork. Gold values up to 0.36gpt Au were returned from the first area and 0.18gpt Au from the second located south of the first. Finally the sampling identified an antimony rich area in the south central part of the property that returned several strong gold-in-soil results up to 0.12gpt Au.

Soil sample results are still pending for the Sulphur, Rosebute, Bishop and Quartz properties as well as results from five trenches completed Sulphur and drill assays results from seven holes completed on the Portland Property.

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.
