    MONTREAL, Aug. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Golden Goose Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GGR)
(the "Company") is pleased to report its results for the second quarter and
six months ended June 30, 2008.

    Q2 Exploration Highlights

    During the second quarter of 2008, Golden Goose filed two 43-101 resource
estimates, one for each of the two properties on which it is currently
conducting exploration. On May 7, 2008, the Company reported that measured and
indicated resources at its Lac Levac (nickel-copper-PGM) property in Quebec
are now estimated at 2,038,000 tonnes grading 1.06% Ni, 0.55% Cu, 0.07% Co,
1.03 g/t Pd and 0.23 g/t Pt, with an additional 1,053,000 tonnes in the
inferred category grading 0.81% Ni, 0.32% Cu, 0.06% Co, 1.06 g/t Pd and
0.50 g/t Pt. On May 29, 2008, the Company released the resource estimate for
the Magino Mine property in Ontario, which shows an inferred resource of
717,227 ounces of gold in resources grading an average of 5.94 g/t from the
200-metre level to a depth of 600 metres. This resource is is based solely on
drilling carried on the property since early 2006, and is in addition to the
resource of 544,080 ounces between surface and 200 metres reported by Snowdon
in 2004.

    Q2 Financial Results

    For the second quarter ended June 30, 2008, the Company reported a net
loss of $364,858 ($0.01 per share) compared with a net loss of $477,442 ($0.02
per share) for the same quarter of 2007. The lower net loss is mainly
attributable to a reduction in stock-based compensation from $392,825 in 2007
to $27,442 this year due to the fair value of options granted in the second
quarter of 2007. General and administrative expenses amounted to $349,328,
relatively unchanged from $341,898 last year. Interest revenue declined from
$40,449 in the second quarter of 2007 to $23,196 this year due to a lower
short-term investment in the quarter of 2008.
    For the six months ended June 30, 2008, the Company reported a net income
of $536,507 compared to a net loss of $687,187 in 2007. The net income for the
period is mainly attributable to an income tax recovery of $1,285,387
resulting from the renunciation by the Company of tax deductions totalling
$4,532,083 resulting from the issuance of flow-through shares in 2006 and
2007, in favour of investors. The Company recorded a future income tax
liability of $1,285,387 and reduced capital stock accordingly. This future
income tax liability has allowed the Company to reduce the valuation allowance
on tax pools related to mining properties by a corresponding amount of
$1,285,387, thereby offsetting the future income tax liability. The reduction
in the valuation allowance has been recorded in the statement of operations,
comprehensive loss and deficit.
    The loss before income taxes for the six-month period amounted to
$748,880, down from $917,877 last year due to the reduction of stock-based
compensation from $445,075 last year to $239,379 this year. Interest revenue
for the period amounted to $65,019, similar to 2007.

    Liquidity and Capital Resources

    As at June 30, 2008, total assets were $16,089,786 compared to
$17,062,365 as at December 31, 2007. Total cash available, composed of cash
and cash equivalents and short-term investments, totalled $2,146,195 at the
end of the quarter compared to $4,283,217 at the last year-end. Total cash
available declined due to cash used in operating and investing activities
during the period.
    Liquid assets available at June 30, 2008 were more than sufficient to
cover the 2008 budget for exploration activities and general and
administrative expenses.

    This selected quarterly information should be read in conjunction with
    the financial statements filed on www.sedar.com for the quarter ended
    June 30, 2008.
