Tara Gold Drills 5 Meters of 12.81 Grams Gold and 27.8 Grams Silver per Tonne at Picacho

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 25, 2007 -- Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) and Lateegra Gold Corp are pleased to announce results from the first assayed drill hole in a first phase drilling program at El Picacho, Mexico. In July 2006, Tara Gold signed an Option Agreement with Lateegra Gold Corp. to acquire up to a 70% interest in the Picacho Gold Mine by spending a minimum of U.S. $3.5 million, delivering 600,000 shares, and achieving certain production goals.

Lateegra, as operator of the project has now completed a 2,569 meter, 14 drill-hole, first phase drilling program, which was designed to confirm and expand upon historic data derived from 22 historic drill holes and sampling from within existing underground development. Core logging has been completed and samples have been received and prepared by ALS Chemex Ltd. laboratory, in Hermosillo, Sonora. The sample pulps will be shipped for analysis to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver, B.C.

Results from the first drill hole MPDH-07-01, processed on a rush basis, are listed in the table below:

The Company is very pleased with these results as they provide verification for historically reported drill-hole results.

To date, a total of 14 drill holes have been completed by the Company intercepting the mineralized quartz breccias and/or veins in 13 of the holes. The vein structure remains open to depth and along strike to the southeast. Additional results will be announced upon receipt of analysis by the Company.

An extensive ground magnetic geophysical survey has now been completed. The data is currently being evaluated and incorporated into the Picacho database. These results, along with pending surface and underground geochemical trenching results will be compiled for geological modeling purposes to aid in planning the Phase 2 drill program, currently proposed for mid May.

The Lateegra Gold Corp is compliant under National Instrument 43-101 for the Picacho Project. Jeffery Reeder, P.Geo. and Luc Pigeon, P.Geo. are the Qualified Persons responsible for the exploration program and supervision of the quality control/quality assurance programs for the Picacho project. A quality control program of standards, duplicates and blanks is maintained.

About Picacho Gold Mine

The Picacho Gold Mine is a 3,236 hectare mining concession located within the Northern Sierra Madre Gold Belt, 120 kilometers south of the United States Border, in Sonora State, Republic of Mexico. The mine includes rolling stock and an extensive processing facility currently capable of 250 tonnes/per day of ore throughput. The previous owners have been exploiting an up to 5 meter wide vein structure for the past three years by driving a 5 meter by 5 meter ramp declining 8% extending over 1km in length. Production comes from several working faces averaging 4-6 meters in width. The ore grades average 5 grams/tonne gold and 15 grams/tonne silver. The structure that hosts the mineralization is 85% silica creating a tailings product that is being sold as a flux agent to the local smelters for US$35.00/tonne, an amount that is estimated to generate sufficient revenues to cover current mining and milling costs.
