Tara Gold Announces Further San Miguel Drill Program Results

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) is pleased to announce that it has received the assay results from the first ten drill holes in the La Veronica area of its San Miguel project in the Guazapares Mining District, Mexico. These holes, LV-01 to LV-10, are 1.4 to 1.8 kilometers northwest along strike from the El Carmen - San Antonio area. They were drilled to test a new area of old workings and attractive surface geochemistry. The assay results confirm that mineralization persists for at least 70 meters below the surface exposures.

In August 2005, Tara Gold Resources Corp. signed an agreement with Paramount Gold Mining Corp. giving Paramount the right to earn up to a 70% interest in the project. Paramount has earned its interest and Tara Gold continues to retain a 30% interest in the project. Paramount is the operator of the exploration program.

Highlights of these assay results are (see table at for further details and maps):

Larry Segerstrom, COO of Paramount Gold and Silver Corp., commented, "We are encouraged by the positive results from this first phase of drilling at La Veronica and in particular the presence of higher gold values. Several more holes have been completed and we are looking forward to the results from those holes. This drilling adds a new 400 meter segment of attractive mineralization within the 8 km long main structural zone at San Miguel."

Exploration drilling continues in the Monte Cristo target area and on the San Miguel vein in the northwestern portion of the property.

Quality Control

Paramount takes detailed photos of the entire core before it is cut by saw to half core which is assayed at ALS Chemex's Vancouver laboratory. As part of quality assurance, quality control (QA/QC), Paramount has put into place a detailed program of periodically introducing certified standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream. Half-core samples are being retained on site for verification and reference purposes.
