Alpha Gold has begun diamond drilling and line cutting at Lustdust



    COQUITLAM, BC, June 19 /CNW/ - Alpha Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ALQ) today
announced that the $2.5 million exploration program for 2007 at the 100%-owned
Lustdust property, central B.C., is in full swing. The ground has sufficiently
dried and drained from the spring thaw, after an exceptionally heavy winter
snowfall. Yesterday diamond drilling began in the Valley Zone to further test
the Carlin-style gold mineralization discovered in last year's program (see
press release dated January 18, 2007). Line cutting is also well underway for
the 44-line kilometre Induced Polarization (IP) survey extending to the
property's boundaries to the east and south. The Company's chief consulting
geologist, Daryl Hanson, is supervising the entire exploration program on site
with a total of 19 people being housed in two camps. Surveying is expected to
take up to one month and drilling will proceed through to November/December
and will also include holes drilled on the Moly Zone.
    This will be a very extensive drill program in the Valley Zone amounting
to about 10,000 metres of drilling. Interesting mineralized results have been
found by our neighbour directly to the south-southeast rather close to the
border of Lustdust. This IP survey, with its high resolution and deep
penetration, is expected to provide valuable insights on what anomalies may be
present on Alpha Gold's side of the border, which has never before been
explored.
    Daryl J. Hanson, P.Eng., is the Company's "Qualified Person" under
National Instrument 43-101.
