Tara Gold Commissions Technical Study to Advance Las Minitas

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2006 -- Tara Gold Resources Corp. (OTC: TRGD) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commissioned an independent technical review and report for the Las Minitas Property portfolio. The review will be carried out by Michael Sandidge, P Geo., a qualified person, as defined under National Instrument 43-101.

Historical information regarding Las Minitas indicates three mineralized zones of interest that contain a potential of 22 million tons of ore grading 20 oz/t silver and 0.08 oz/t gold. Metallurgical testing indicates that recoveries of 90% for both silver and gold may be achievable by cyanidation alone. The full historical report is available at

Mr. Francis Biscan Jr., President of Tara Gold Resources stated, "We are grateful to have formed relationships in Mexico that continue to bring us properties of substantial merit. The Las Minitas project holds the potential for 400 million ounces of silver and 1.7 million ounces of gold. The technical data was taken from historical records and are based on a technical report that was written in 1995, prior to the implementation of NI 43-101. We look forward to receiving a qualified NI-43-101 report, which will also outline a sampling, trenching, and drilling program to advance this property."

The Company will focus its initial efforts on the validation of the previous exploration work that outlined three wide, high-grade, lode-type mineralized bodies: the North, Central, and El Negro zones, with postulated strike lengths of 400, 500, and 700 meters respectively. These three zones are considered to be outstanding precious metal exploration targets.

Cautionary Note

The tonnages, grades, assays, drill intercepts, production figures and other technical data are taken from historical records prior to the implementation of NI 43-101. While the data is believed to have been acquired, processed and disclosed by persons believed to be technically competent, it is unverifiable at present. The data source for the Las Minitas property is largely the 1995 Report by D.B. Perterson. Tara Gold is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves as defined in NI 43-101 and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.
