X-Cal Resources Ltd.: High Grade in Facilities Area at Sleeper

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 24, 2007) - X-Cal Resources Ltd. (TSX:XCL) -

Two "Facilities Area" drill holes have returned high-grade assays as development drilling continues at Sleeper.

Reverse Circulation hole # XR-07-25 included 20ft of 0.949 opt Au. (32.537 grams per Tonne).

Reverse Circulation hole # XR-07-36 included 10ft of 1.548 opt Au. (53.047 grams per Tonne).

Additional drilling to trace the higher grades will follow.

The Facilities Area is located east of the Sleeper pit (see April 10, 2007 press release).

The following results are from the twelve most recently assayed drill holes in the Facilities Area. The structural picture is developing as described in the April 10, 2007 release. We are encouraged to see the higher grades. More drilling to determine the true width or thickness of the higher grades will be required.

The 2007 goal for the Facilities Area work is near-surface mineralization, to be combined with above-ground mineralization from the nearby heaps (see April 10, 2007 press release for detail).

Historic Note: The Sleeper Vein occurred in the pit area, adjacent to the Facilities Area, within a significant area of lower grade.

Development drilling at West Wood is also progressing. The most recent drill result from that area includes 72 feet of 0.122 opt Au. (4.18 grams per Tonne). This result extends mineralization westward by 75ft. and fills in a gap in data for that area.

Good progress is being made in several areas, including earlier stage exploration of the Northwest (NW) Target.

Readers are encouraged to view X-Cal's press release of April 10, 2007 and the NI-43-101 technical report on the Sleeper Gold Property, which can be found @ www.x-cal.com or on SEDAR, in conjunction with this update.

The Sleeper Gold Property, located in Humboldt County, Nevada is 100% owned by X-Cal Resources Ltd.

The Sleeper drill samples were collected following standard industry practice and were assayed by American Assay Laboratories, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada. Gold results were determined using standard fire assay techniques on a 30 gram sample with an atomic absorption finish. Higher-grade assays are checked by gravimetric fire-assay methods. QA/QC included the insertion of numerous standards and blanks into the sample stream.
