DENVER, COLORADO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 24, 2005) - U.S. Gold Corporation (OTCBB:USGL) is pleased to announce that Ann S. Carpenter has been named its president and chief operating officer. Ann has over 20 years of diverse experience in exploration, mineral evaluations and mine project development having worked for a number of gold companies and as a consultant to the industry. She has also been an advocate for the mining industry and has given testimony before the U.S. Congress and is active with the Women's Mining Coalition and other industry organizations.

"We are very excited to have Ann as our new President. Ann brings considerable talents, experience, energy and associations that will definitely enhance the exploration and development of our Tonkin Springs property and the growth of U.S. Gold," stated Rob McEwen, Chairman of the Board of Directors of U.S. Gold.

The Corporation also announces that its upcoming annual meeting of shareholder will be held November 14, 2005 at 2 p.m. at the Hershner Room in the Wells Fargo Center, 1700 Lincoln Street, Lobby Level, downtown Denver, Colorado. All shareholders and interested investors are cordially invited to attend. Among other issues to be considered by shareholders will be the election of two new directors, Michele Ashby and Leanne Baker.

Michele Ashby is chief executive officer of Mine, LLC, which organizes and promotes natural resource companies to the investment community through private conferences. She founded the Denver Gold Group Inc., and served as its chief executive officer from 1998 to 2005. Dr. Baker is an independent consultant in the mining and financial services industries and is a former equity research analyst and managing director with Salomon Smith Barney. Retiring from the Board of Directors at the meeting are long-time members John W. Goth and Richard F. Nanna.

U.S. Gold's Tonkin Springs property includes a 36 square mile property position, strategically positioned on the Cortez Trend in Nevada, and located in the heart of promising exploration and development activity. Tonkin Springs has an existing gold resource of 1.4 million ounces within the upper 250 feet identified within a relatively small area of the property. The exploration potential of this property has increased over the past few years as Placer Dome, which adjoins our property to the north, has continued to discover several multi-million ounce gold deposits, some of which have reached to a depth of 2,000 feet.
