White Knight Responds to U.S. Gold Corp.'s Retraction of Offer

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 7, 2006) - White Knight Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WKR) ("White Knight") announces that in a press release issued after the close of markets on June 5, 2006, U.S. Gold Corp. confirmed that it has terminated its offer to acquire all of the common shares of White Knight. U.S. Gold Corp. advised that the termination was necessitated by its failure to meet certain regulatory requirements.

By a directors' circular dated May 16, 2006, the Board of Directors of White Knight indicated that it was not making a recommendation on the U.S. Gold offer because of its concern that U.S. Gold Corp. had certain issues that had to be resolved with respect to the timing of the offer, particularly with respect to the timing of receiving appropriate clearances from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

White Knight is generally supportive of the business proposition and, in connection with a future offer, will continue to cooperate fully with U.S. Gold in respect of their regulatory requirements.

Management of White Knight has maintained focus on its business and forthcoming exploration season through the announcement of U.S. Gold Corp.'s intention to bid, the subsequent receipt of the formal offer, and the retraction of that offer. Consequently, White Knight has drill rigs and personnel ready to commence drilling within days.

The Company has been exploring Nevada since 1993 and currently controls the second largest land holding in the Cortez Trend.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

John M. Leask, P.Eng., Chairman of the Board
