Threegold Resources Inc.: Significant Gold Grades Discovered, Up to 26.7 Grams Per Tonne at South Bay Project, Val-d'Or, Quebec

VAL-D'OR, QUÉBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2010) - Threegold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:THG) is pleased to announce results for surface channel samples collected on the South Bay property, 40 km east of Val-d'Or, Québec. Significant gold values of up to 26.7 g/t were received and the results confirm the potential of a high-grade discovery in a prolific gold mining region of Canada.

Threegold's management is highly enthusiastic about the initial results and has decided to immediately mobilize a drill to the project to verify the extensions of the surface discovery at depth and along strike. The program will consist of a series of short holes aimed directly below the exposed mineralized zone. Surface magnetometric and Induced Polarization geophysical surveys will also be carried out to characterize the discovery area.

The company started its first work program on the South Bay property, some 40 km due east of Val-d'Or, during the fall of 2010 to locate historical gold occurrences. Some historical trenches were found, cleared and stripped using a backhoe. The exposed rocks were felsic to intermediate intrusives exhibiting significant silicification and sericitization, cut by folded quartz veins and veinlets carrying substantial pyrite mineralization. Threegold sampled the surface by cutting channels at various intervals and collecting the material. Two (2) additional areas were also stripped and channel-sampled on the South Bay property, and results for these are pending. These additional areas are believed to be part of the historical occurrences previously reported for the project but never properly located.

The fifty (50) channel samples were sent to Actlabs (Activation Laboratories Ltd) in Ste-Germaine-de-Boulé, Québec, for assaying using conventional Fire Assay with Atomic Absorption finish on a 30-g pulverized split portion. Results exceeding 3,000 ppm were reassayed with a gravimetric finish. Exploration and sampling of the project was carried out under the direct supervision of Robert Tremblay, P.Geo. Samples were delivered directly to the laboratory for processing.

Threegold Resources is actively pursuing gold discoveries in three projects in prolific mining and exploration camps in Ontario and Québec. The 100% owned Adanac project is immediately adjacent to Gold Bullion's Granada discovery and west of Osisko's 12M ounce deposit on the Abitibi belt. The South Bay Project has yielded a significant surface discovery near Val-d'Or and the Company has recently acquired land in the Shining Tree Camp on the eastern extension of the Cadillac–Larder Lake Fault Zone. Management is evaluating opportunities to create shareholder value with its recent Rare Earth Element discovery and its Base Metal project in the Gaspé Peninsula.
