StrataGold Discovers Two New Zones at Tassawini, Guyana



    VANCOUVER, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - StrataGold Corporation (SGV-TSX) is pleased to
report results for an additional fifty-two (52) diamond drill (DD) holes
representing 5698.2 metres (m) of the 2007 drilling program at Tassawini,
Guyana. StrataGold has completed 14,119.1m of diamond drilling so far in 2007,
with assays pending for twenty-four (24) holes and drilling continuing at this
time.
    Recent DDH results have identified a new gold zone approximately 250 m
south of the previously defined Tassawini Deposit. This zone was discovered by
drill testing an induced polarization (IP) geophysical target that was
unrelated to a gold soil anomaly. The second zone discovered by DD is at Sonne
South, in an area previously defined by reverse circulation (RC) drilling. DD
successfully intersected gold mineralization in both saprolite and bedrock
related to a mineralized fault zone which is open in all directions.
    During the past several months over 41 line kilometers of IP geophysics
has been completed at Tassawini and the adjacent Anaturi prospecting license.
Systematic drilling of priority IP targets commenced this past month with
trenching, RC and DD.

    New Discovery

    An Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey identified a near-surface
chargeability anomaly located approximately 250 meters southwest from the
Tassawini West deposit. Drill hole SD365 tested this target and returned
7.60 meters at an average grade if 2.20 g/t, while drill hole SD367
intersected 16.50m at an average grade of 1.01 g/t. The true width appears to
be variable, ranging from 2m to 15m. This new zone continues to be drill
tested along strike and at depth.

    Sonne South

    Preliminary DDH results from Sonne South confirmed gold mineralization in
saprolite and bedrock associated with a mineralized fault zone delineated by
reverse circulation drilling, ground geophysics, soil geochemistry and
trenching. Hole SD381 intersected 41.83m at 0.86 g/t gold in saprolite while
hole SD382 intersected 37.10m at an average grade of 1.06 g/t gold below drill
hole SD382 in bedrock. This structure is open in all directions and is
presently being drill tested along strike and at depth.
    Additional drilling at Sonne South was carried out in three different
areas and tested the bedrock to approximately 70m vertical depth. The program
was designed to follow up on shallow reverse circulation drill intersections
and has confirmed a saprolite deposit near surface. The mineralization
intersected is in moderately to gently dipping bodies ranging between 5 and
35m in true thickness. SD377, a vertical hole which intersected 29.8m
averaging 0.93g/t gold, terminated in mineralization. This hole has since been
re-entered and lengthened.

    SD299, 370 and 385 at Sonne South did not return any significant gold
mineralization. Assays from four holes in this area are pending.

    Tassawini West

    Ten (10) additional DDH's were completed at Tassawini West. SD319 was
drilled to confirm the geometry of a high grade mineralized core zone plunging
to the southwest within the main mineralized zone and intersected 22.50m
averaging 5.07 g/t gold. This drill hole was drilled oblique to the strike of
mineralization and was oriented across the true plunge of mineralization. The
true thickness of the mineralization in this part of the deposit is estimated
to be 15 meters. Tassawini West continues to demonstrate the presence of a
higher grade mineralized core.
    SD343, 346 and 349 were drilled 150m northeast of Tassawini West with
hole SD346 intersecting 1.06 g/t gold over 15.60m. Additional drilling is
required to determine the significance of these results.

to gently dipping bodies ranging between 5 and 20m in true thickness. Results
from three holes are pending.

    Ithaka

    Six holes were drilled at a structural target and coincident I.P.
geophysical anomaly approximately 500m east-northeast of the historical
Tassawini Mine - the Ithaka target. None of these holes intersected any
significant gold mineralization.
    Assays are also pending for an additional 15 DD holes drilled on other IP
targets delineated within the Tassawini and Kathmandu areas.

    Quality Control and Assurance

    A rigorous Quality Control and Assurance program (QC/QA) is in place,
using control samples and duplicates, as well as Chain of Custody (COC)
protocols, under the supervision of Bill Yeomans, P.Geo., StrataGold's General
Manager Exploration, South America. Tamperproof sample bags with zip lock tags
are being utilized for all of the drill samples. The Tassawini samples were
prepared by ACME laboratories in Georgetown, Guyana, and analysed by ACME
laboratories in Santiago, Chile. ACME laboratories is a recognized as an ISO
9000 registered laboratory. The control samples and duplicate assay results
received for the drilling program demonstrated to StrataGold that the results
are considered reliable. However, due to the rigorous nature of StrataGold's
QC/QA program, additional check assays will be conducted and these results
pending. All diamond drill holes are being processed an ISO 9000 registered
laboratory. The technical information in this news release has been prepared
in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National
