TNR Gold Corp.: Exploration Program Has Commenced on the El Salto Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - TNR Gold Corp. ("TNR") (TSX VENTURE:TNR) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 3D IP survey on the El Salto property located in the western San Juan Province, Argentina. El Salto is a copper-molybdenum porphyry system containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite, molybdenite and a variety of copper oxides and carbonates. A drill program is planned to test targets on the property after the completion of the IP program. The area to be surveyed is 5 km by 1.5 km in size and covers an area of geochemically anomalous copper, molybdenum and gold.

The 3300-hectare El Salto property is situated in Precordillera area of the eastern Andes, at an altitude of approximately 1600 m. A 1975 exploration program conducted by the Argentina government's San Juan Mining Office concluded that this area has the signature of a copper-molybdenum porphyry system. It appears to be one of a series of similar systems within what is known as the "Yellow Belt" district of San Juan Province. Examples of mines within in area are the El Pachon copper mine development project situated in Argentina less than 5 kilometres from the Chilean border with measured and indicated resources of 724 million tonnes grading 0.65% copper (Falconbridge web site) and the Los Pelambres is a major copper mine in Chile approximately 2 km from the Argentine border with proved and probable reserves of 1.49 billion tonnes grading 0.66% copper (Antofagasta web site).

The Company is earning a 100% interest in the project by making cash and exploration expenditures of US $1,100,000 over 5 years.
