White Knight Resources Ltd.: Placer Dome Discovers New Gold Zone on Indian Ranch Project, Cortez Trend

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 8, 2005) - White Knight Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WKR) has been informed by its joint venture partner, Placer Dome (U.S.) Inc., that it has encountered a significant gold intercept in hole PIR 05-10 on the Indian Ranch project. Hole PIR 05-10 was part of Placer's 3-hole, 1830 metre drill campaign. The drill intercept of 9.1 metres of 1.58 g/ton is contained within a broad gold zone 102 metres thick grading 0.32 g/ton and occurs at a downhole depth of 426 metres. The mineralization is hosted within the upper Roberts Mountain formation which hosts the Pipeline and lower portions of the Cortez Hills deposits. The thickness of alteration, as well as mineralization, is consistent with many of the larger Carlin-type gold deposits. Holes PIR 05-9 and PIR 05-11 were unmineralized.

Based on the information received to date, White Knight believes a Carlin System may be developed within the preferred stratigraphic horizon. The gold intercept and drilled alteration suggests potential for a nearby Carlin-style deposit. Placer has mobilized a drill rig for follow-up on this new discovery and a program of four to six holes totaling 1800 to 2400 meters is in progress.
