"We are extremely pleased to have closed this transaction to acquire a very large and prospective gold and silver land package in Durango, Mexico after two years of work by the vendors assembling and sampling the properties.

Transaction Summary

GoGold has acquired all of the issued and outstanding securities of  Mexican Gold Holdings Corporation Incorporated ("MHC"), a Canadian company. MHC and MHC's wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, North American Gold Holdings Corporation Incorporated ("NAHC"), together own 100% of Minera Dorango Dorado S.A. DE C.V., a Mexican company, ("MDD"). MDD is a party to agreements to earn a 100-per-cent interest in five (5) gold and silver properties consisting of a number of Mexican mining concession titles (the "Claims") covering approximately 24,000 hectares in Durango, Mexico (the "MDD Agreements").

GoGold has issued 14,000,000 common shares of the Company to the shareholders of MHC and has paid a total of $1,100,000. The 14,000,000 common shares issued will be subject to a 4 month hold period.

The terms of the MDD Agreements provide MDD with an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Claims in exchange for the following:

i.      a first year payment of $140,000;
   
ii.      a total work commitment for all Claims for the first three years of $900,000 and a total work commitment for years four through eight for all Claims of $2,650,000; and,
   
iii.      paying a minimum advance royalty of $130,000 per annum starting in year three and ending in year eight. The royalty is based on a payment of up to $4.00 per ounce of gold equivalent NI 43-101 compliant mineable reserves ("Reserves"). Any advance royalty payments will be applied against the final royalty payment due. MDD has agreed to pay the current optionors of the Claims an ongoing royalty of up to $4.00 per ounce of any future increase in Reserves.
   
iv.     MDD may exercise the option to acquire the Claims at any time by paying the royalty or at the end of the eight year period provided all payments above have been made.
