X-Cal Resources Ltd.: Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - X-Cal Resources Ltd. (TSX:XCL) -

The recent private placement with Sprott Asset Management has added new shareholders to our list. Kinross Gold Corporation also holds X-Cal shares.

X-Cal acquired 100% of the Sleeper Gold Property in mid-2006 and then concentrated on development drilling to establish the current NI-43-101 resource, which was announced in the last quarter of 2008.

A preliminary economic assessment of the gold and silver resources at Sleeper is in progress. The report is expected during the first half of 2009.

The Facilities and West Wood resource areas at Sleeper are open to step-out drilling.

A new geologic picture is apparent at Sleeper. Recent due diligence visits by mining companies have concentrated on verifying the new picture and looking at the exploration upside of the district.

Low-angled mineralized layers have been recognized at Sleeper, in addition to the known high-grade high-angle structures. The implications for tonnage, mining logistics, and future exploration are very positive.

A favorable area on the West Side of the pit should be drilled in light of current data.

Presentations titled "West Side Target and Assay Highlights" and "Evolution of the Sleeper Gold Project" can be found in the Current Reports section of the company website to assist with visualization (see www.x-cal.com).

The foundation resource at Sleeper is one aspect of 30 square mile property.
Targets throughout the district are documented in an extensive database. The potential for new discoveries within the claim block is evident.

Sleeper is located in Humboldt County, Nevada.

In the Cortez Area, Lander County, Nevada, X-Cal also has properties located over two separate lower plate windows.

In the Spring Valley Area, Pershing County, Nevada X-Cal has the WR (West Rochester) property. WR was acquired based on work by Ken Snyder.

All of the above Nevada properties are 100% X-CAL. The company is debt free.
