StrataGold discovers new gold zone at Dublin Gulch, Yukon



    VANCOUVER, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - StrataGold Corporation (SGV: TSX) is pleased
to announce the discovery of a new gold zone, called the Shamrock Zone, at its
100% owned Dublin Gulch property, Yukon. The Shamrock Zone is located three
kilometers north-northeast of the Eagle Zone gold deposit.
    The 868 metre (m) 2007 diamond drill hole (DDH) program at the Shamrock
Zone was designed to follow up highly anomalous gold in soils and trenching
results from the 2006 exploration program. All five of the DDH's collared in
and ended in the Dublin Gulch granodiorite stock, which hosts the Eagle Zone.
Assay results, including 15.24 m averaging 1.12 g/t gold and 16.76 m averaging
1.42 g/t gold, are encouraging. At this time the Shamrock Zone has been
defined over a strike length of 325 m with four holes and remains open in both
directions along strike and down-dip. DDH 329 intersected 14.6 m averaging
1.16 g/t gold and appears to have intersected a separate, parallel zone
immediately north of the Shamrock Zone that is part of the same gold system.
Results from the 2007 DDH exploration program confirm excellent potential to
add additional gold resources to the Dublin Gulch property outside of the
Eagle Zone.

    Soil sampling was also completed on the Shamrock Zone in 2007, tripling
the size of the grid completed in 2006. Results from the 2006 soil sampling
and trenching program at the Shamrock Zone are available on the Dublin Gulch
property page at www.stratagold.com. The results of the 2007 soil sampling
program will be made available when received.

    About Dublin Gulch

    Dublin Gulch is located in the north central portion of the Tintina Gold
Belt and is being explored by various exploration companies for low-grade bulk
tonnage, intrusive-hosted gold deposits similar to the Fort Knox Gold Mine
operated by Kinross Gold Corporation in Alaska. StrataGold's exploration
efforts at Dublin Gulch have focused mainly on the Eagle Zone deposit which
hosts the current National Instruments 43-101 compliant resource estimate
comprising an Indicated Resource of 1.96 million ounces gold at 0.916 g/t and
an Inferred Resource of 371,000 gold at 0.803 g/t using a 0.50 g/t gold
cut-off (see news release dated February 27, 2006)(*).

    (*)Rob Carter, P.Eng. and Greg Mosher, P.Geo. of Wardrop Engineering
Incorporated, Canada and Qualified Person Jim Sparling, P.Geo., Manager,
Exploration North and Central America are the Qualified Persons under NI

    Quality Control and Assurance

    A rigorous Quality Control and Assurance program (QC/QA) is in place,
using control samples such as Blanks, CANMET and OREAS Standards and various
duplicate checks, as well as protocols outlined and defined by a qualified
independent Geochemist. The program is under supervision of Jim Sparling,
P.Geo., StrataGold's Manager Exploration, North and Central America. All
sample bags are freighted to ALS Chemex preparation lab in Terrace and then to
Vancouver for analysis. Duplicate checks are made on various sample types and
are sent to ACME Labs in Vancouver. ALS Chemex and ACME Labs are ISO 9001:2000
accredited laboratories.
