Yukon Gold VTEM Helicopter Survey Outlines EM Conductor at its Zinc-Copper-Silver Deposit in the Yukon

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. ("Yukon Gold")(TSX:YK)(OTCBB:YGDC) announced today that it has received encouraging results from the Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic and Magnetic Survey (VTEM) that was flown over its Marg Zinc-Copper-Silver Deposit by Geotech Limited of Aurora, Ontario.

This is the first airborne geophysical survey flown over the property in the search for electromagnetic conductors related to massive sulphide mineralization. The survey covered 58km2 and 366 line kilometres were flown, using 200 metre flight line spacing. The VTEM survey area covers the portion of the Marg claims that is underlain by the highly prospective Devonian to Mississippian, Earn Group meta-volcanic and meta-sedimentary sequence.

A preliminary evaluation of the survey results has been completed by Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited. In this evaluation, a total of 447 individual anomalies were identified, however, the great majority of these anomalies are in non-prospective rocks and probably represent conductive rock units or fault zones. Within the prospective Earn Group, a sequenced number of 16 anomalies have been identified and ranked in importance (see map at http://yukongoldcorp.com/projects/index.html). All anomalies identified within the Earn Group occur at the prospective contact between felsic meta-volcanic rocks and overlying carbonaceous, argillaceous meta-sedimentary rocks, in the same stratigraphic setting as the Marg deposit. These anomalies may represent previously unknown massive sulphide bodies. The most promising is along strike from the known Jane Zone while the second most promising anomaly is along strike from the Marg Deposit.

A geophysicist has been retained by Yukon Gold to further evaluate the VTEM results and will provide input on selecting the best drill targets. In addition, geochemical soil sampling on small grids over selected VTEM responses has already started. This will provide further guidance on ranking the anomalies for drill testing.

The Qualified Person who prepared this press release is Stew Fumerton, Ph.D., P. Geo. VP Exploration for Yukon Gold. Results from the anomaly evaluation program will be published as they are made available and reviewed by Yukon Gold's management team.
