X-Cal Resources Ltd.: Sonic Drilling Completed on Schedule

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2007) - X-CAL Resources (TSX:XCL) is pleased to announce completion of the Sonic Drill Program at the Sleeper Mine Site, located in Humboldt County Nevada, on schedule.

Forty drill holes on Heap Leach Pads #1 thru #4 have drawn approximately 20 tons of new sample material from the aboveground stockpile for testing at Kappes
Cassiday & Associates in Reno.

Ongoing test work at Kappes Cassiday (KCA) is designed to verify the gold and silver content of the pads and determine potential recovery rates.

Assays from the Sonic Drill Program are pending.


Testing of the Leach Pad materials at Sleeper is one part of the mineral inventory program.

In November, data from 605 (six hundred and five) drill holes for three in-ground mine site area targets was submitted to qualified independents, as part of the inventory process: West Wood Area, Facilities North Area and Facilities South Area (see November 13, 2007 Press Release).

Mine Development Associates (MDA) will head mineral inventory calculations.
