Golden Dawn Minerals Commences Drilling in the Kirkland Lake District

    FRANKFURT EXCHANGE: 3G8

    VANCOUVER, June 16 /CNW/ - Golden Dawn Minerals Inc. (GOM:TSX-V) has
commenced a geophysical survey and diamond drilling progr am as of June 14th,
2008 on the Link-Catharine gold property located in the Boston-Skead gold
corridor 15-35 km southeast of Kirkland Lake, northeastern Ontario. Drilling
is designed to confirm gold mineralization intersected historically on the
Link-Catharine vein system.
    Mineralized intersections grading 6.0 g/t Au over 8.6 m, and 1.91 g/t Au
over 20.4 m were reported from historical drilling that may not represent true
vein widths. Within the intersection grading 6.0 g/t Au over 8.6 m, one core
sample over a 1.10 m interval is comprised of a quartz-vein-flooded zone with
10% fine to coarse pyrite; this sample returned an assay value of 33.99g/t Au
(1.09 oz/ton gold). The current exploration program is designed to confirm and
explore for extensions of this style of mineralization.
    A diamond drilling program is being conducted to complement a program of
125 line-km of line-cutting, magnetometer and VLF electromagnetic surveying,
together with selected induced polarization (IP) coverage.
    The Link-Catharine gold mineralization occurs within a system of
gold-bearing quartz veins trending northerly through the Link-Catharine,
Central Catharine and 80-Foot Fall properties held under option by Golden
Dawn. This northerly trend is intersected by a cross-trending series of
breaks, providing the setting for the possible development of clusters of
subparallel or reticulated vein systems together with possible pervasive gold
mineralization.
    The property is accessible by road and the area has good infrastructure.
The program is scheduled for eight weeks, with results to be reported when
received. This project is being overseen by Ed Kimura, P.Geo., who has
reviewed the contents of this press release.
