Tornado Gold to Proceed with Jack Creek Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 20, 2006) -

Dr. Earl W. Abbott reports:

Tornado Gold International Corp. (OTCBB:TOGI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the Company has received a recommendation for further work on its Jack Creek property in Nevada. The recommendation stems from airborne magnetic and gravity survey studies carried out on the property in September and October 2006.

Jack Creek is located in the northern Independence Range about 50 miles north of Elko, Elko County, Nevada. It is comprised of 300 lode mining claims (nearly 5,000 acres) adjacent to Gateway Gold Corp.'s (TSX VENTURE:GTQ) Big Springs and Dorsey Creek Properties. A total of 247 of these claims are 100% owned by the Company, while the remaining 53 claims are optioned by the Company from Gateway Gold Corp.

Both the airborne magnetic and gravity surveys defined a major east-northeast trending corridor, confirming earlier exploration results. In addition, rock and chip samples correlated with this corridor. Magnetic highs scattered about the property indicate the presence of greenstones in the Schoonover Formation. However, one magnetic anomaly has been interpreted as being produced by a hidden intrusion.

As a result of this study, the Company will proceed on detailed geological exploration, mapping and compilation of historic data. A Plan of Operations has been submitted to the U.S. Forest Service to drill two 2,000 foot core holes on the property.
