Tornado Gold Reports Geophysical Study Results

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 13, 2006) - Tornado Gold International Corp. (OTCBB:TOGI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce additional geophysical synopsis of the Company's Nevada properties was completed by Wright Geophysics, Inc.

The purpose of the synopsis is to review the regional geophysical setting for each of the properties using published gravity and magnetic data derived from the U.S. Geological Survey Nevada database. Combined with available geology and mineral occurrence information, this study provides a basis for subsequent property scale work. The results presented in the synopsis are as follows, as written by Jim Wright of Wright Geophysics, Inc.:

NT Green Property, Lander County

A total of 266 lode claims (about 5,320 acres) in Lander County, Nevada comprise the NT Green Property. It is located about 40 miles southwest of the town of Battle Mountain, about 8 miles south of the operating Pipeline complex of mines, and about 4 miles west-southwest of the recently discovered Cortez Hills and Pediment deposits that are currently being developed by Placer Dome (now Barrick). The property falls on a gravity high in the Pipeline-Toiyabe Corridor. Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of various ages are exposed on the property in an erosional window through Tertiary volcanic rocks. Magnetic data indicate an intrusion along the eastern boundary of the property that may be the source of gold mineralization. Detailed aeromagnetic data acquired by Tornado Gold in late 2005 and announced in a news release on 1-31-06 confirms the presence of widespread Paleozoic sedimentary rocks and discovered evidence for the existence of a number north trending dikes traversing the property. The Company believes that these features are all favorable indicators that a gold deposit may exist at the NT Green Property, thus further exploration is in order to determine if such deposit is possible.

Wilson Peak Property, Elko County

A total of 61 lode claims (about 1,220 acres) in Elko County, Nevada comprise the Wilson Peak Property. It is located about 70 miles north of the town of Elko and about 20 miles north of the Tuscarora mining district. The property is located in the Tuscarora Corridor, defined by a number of north-south trending faults extending from south of the Tuscarora mining district, through the Wilson Peak Property, and extending to the Edgemont mining district, about 7 miles north of the property. A prominent magnetic high at the property is interpreted to be a hidden intrusion. The Company believes that gold mineralization is closely related to intrusion at both Tuscarora and Edgemont, although further exploration of this property will be necessary to assure that any gold mineralization may be discovered at the Wilson Peak Property.

Horseshoe Basin Property, Lander County

A total of 50 lode claims (about 1,000 acres) in Lander County, Nevada comprise the Horseshoe Basin Property. It is located about 30 miles south of the town of Battle Mountain. The property is situated at a prominent westward bend in the south trending Virgin Fault Corridor. The Corridor runs from Copper Basin, the site of Newmont's 6 million ounce (of gold) Phoenix gold and copper deposit, to the Fortitude gold deposit, and passes through the Horseshoe Basin Property. Intrusive rocks, similar to those found at the McCoy gold deposit and the Cove gold-silver deposit, are seen at the surface on the property and are inferred at depth. The Company believes that such intrusions are intimately associated with all of the significant gold and copper deposits in this area although, without further exploration of this property, there can be no assurance that any gold deposit exists or that it will be discovered at the Horseshoe Basin Property.
