Golden Goose completes 7,150-metre fall drilling program on its Lac Levac nickel property in James Bay



    MONTREAL, Dec. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Golden Goose Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GGR)
(the "Company") is pleased to report the completion of its fall drilling
program at its wholly-owned Lac Levac nickel property in the James Bay area,
216 km north of Chibougamau in northern Quebec.
    In all, a total of 7,150 metres were drilled in 33 holes between
mid-October and mid-December. Initially planned at 6,000 metres, the program
was extended to allow the eastern extension of the (*)NISK-1 anomaly to be
tested. An InfitiTEM geophysical survey conducted in the fall located the
(*)NISK-1 anomaly and suggested that it extended further east than previously
realized.
    "So far, the results we have received are for in-fill drilling on the    
(*)NISK-1 anomaly," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President of Golden Goose. "The
results are consistent with the drilling we did last spring, indicating good
homogeneity and continuity within the zone. Assays for the holes drilled on
the eastern extension, namely holes 16, 17, 39, and 43 to 50, are among the
results still pending."

    
    A summary of the drilling done to date is as follows (more results to
    come):

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    01-07, 02-07, 03-07 were drilled on the "C" anomaly and showed no
    significant mineralization
    11-07 and 14-07 were cancelled
    12-07 showed no significant mineralization
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Analyses were done by Accurassay Laboratories, Thunder Bay, Ontario. All
    samples are tested using a full scan ICP following an Aqua-Regia
    digestion. Ore grade samples are then reanalyzed by atomic absorption. Pt
    and Pd are tested by Fire Assay using lead collection.
    

    The data generated by the fall drilling will be used to update the NI
43-101-compliant evaluation report and resource estimate dated July 2007,
which showed the NISK-1 anomaly to contain an indicated resource of
516,000 tonnes at 0.89% nickel, 0.39% copper, 0.06% cobalt, 0.79 g/t palladium
and 0.14 g/t platinum and an inferred resource of 734,000 tonnes at 0.89%
nickel, 0.34% copper, 0.06% cobalt, 0.77 g/t palladium and 0.14 g/t platinum.
    "We have shut down activities for the holiday period, but we plan to
continue drilling on the NISK-1 anomaly in the New Year. We are currently
completing the planning for our 2008 program, which consists of about
10,000 metres of drilling to further delineate the anomaly and its extensions
and explore other targets of interest on the property," added Mr. Lacoste.
    The Lac Levac drilling programs are planned and supervised by
Marc-Antoine Beaupré, a geological engineer and the qualified person as
defined by National Instrument 43-101. He has approved the contents of this
press release.

    (*) NISK-1: The Lac Levac anomalies will all be named in the Cree
    Language. NISK previously named INCO translates to GOOSE.
