Trenching at San Miguel Discovers New Zone 2,000 Meters Along Strike

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) Tara Gold Resources Corp. is pleased to announce trenching results from its ongoing exploration program in the central part of its San Miguel concession block near Temoris, Chihuahua, Mexico.

In August 2005, Tara Gold Resources signed an agreement with Paramount Gold Mining Corp. giving Paramount the right to earn up to a 70% interest in the project by spending US$2.5 million, delivering 700,000 shares, and making various payments to Tara Gold, which has now been earned.

These four trenches are located in the La Veronica zone, which is adjoining and up to 2,000 meters to the north of the San Antonio/El Carmen zone where Paramount reported drill results up to 1,162 g/t silver across 4.40 meters (see news release dated March 28th 2007).

Trenches 00 through 03 span approximately 225 meters along strike on the La Veronica zone. Trench ZLV-00 is located approximately 1,780 meters north of and along strike from drill hole SA-08 in the San Antonio zone, which is the most northerly reported drill hole to date. SA-08 reported 2.5 meters of 212 g/t silver with 0.78% combined lead/zinc and 12.8 meters of 84 g/t silver with 1.16% combined lead/zinc and 5.1 meters of 107 g/t silver with 1.25% combined lead/zinc (see news release dated Dec 14, 2006).

Trench ZLV-01 is just 10 meters north of and extends trench ZLV-00 while trenches ZLV-02 to ZLV-03 continue along strike to the northwest with approximately 110 meters between each trench.

Paramount's Manager of Exploration in Mexico, Bill Reed, commented: "The trench results at La Veronica compare very well with earlier trenches from the San Antonio, San Jose and La Union zones, and constitute the discovery of a new mineralized zone. Preliminary indications from surface sampling of sparse outcrops and old mine workings in the 1,780 meter gap between San Antonio and La Veronica suggest that the mineralization represented by the new La Veronica zone may extend for at least 1 km south, along strike, towards the San Antonio zone."

The highlights of the trenching include:

ZLV-00 - 12.0 meters averaging 134.0 g/t Ag, including 2.7 meters of 241 g/t Ag with 0.14 g/t Au and 3.0 meters of 222 g/t Ag with 0.10 g/t Au.

ZLV-01 - 45.0 meters averaging 121.0 g/t Ag, including 10.0 meters of 201 g/t Ag and 11.0 meters of 180 g/t Ag.

ZLV-02 - 30.8 meters averaging 82.0 g/t Ag, including 8.0 meters of 161 g/t.

ZLV-03 - 19.5 meters averaging 87.0 g/t Ag, including 8.0 meters of 128 g/t silver.

In the La Union zone, trench ZLU-07 was extended with trench ZLU-07A that reported 13.5 meters of 69 g/t Ag, which expands this trench (ZLU-07 + ZLU-07A) to 36.1 meters averaging 82 g/t Ag.

The trenches are excavated to a depth of 2-3 meters and extend from west to east across the quartz veins and stockwork quartz veins that host silver and gold mineralization in the Guazapares mining district. The trenches were cut through thin overburden to better define drill targets and spaced approximately 110 meters apart. The geology of the trenches is mapped in detail and continuous rock chip samples of no more than one meter in length are collected from the trench walls.

Drill holes have been completed on the San Antonio zone and the drill will continue to move north along the mineralized zone as defined by the trench assays defined below.
