Jet Gold drills 0.4 meters of 13.37 g/t gold under 35 meters

Accelerated drill program a "go" for early 2012

VANCOUVER, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Jet Gold Corp. (TSX-V: JAU) today announced positive results from its October drill program at Big Hammer. Results from 3 of the 11 holes drilled produced grades of 13.37 g/t, 7.3 g/t and 6.0 g/t gold, as per table following.

In announcing the results, Brad Moynes, JetGold President stated: "We are very encouraged by our recent Big Hammer drill results. The grams-per-ton gold grades are positive and we're planning to continue an aggressive drilling program in early 2012."

Donald G. Strachan, project QP added, "Geometries of altered host rock, altered and sulfidic diorite intrusions and gold-bearing veins along Big Hammer's quartz-chlorite-sulfide-telluride shear zones hold promise for multiple shoots capable of supporting moderate-sized, long-term gold production."

Summary drilling results: (see drill hole ID & table following)

1)      High grade gold achieved in BH11-003 was 13.37 g/t gold over 0.4 meters, 112 g/t silver and 69 g/t tellurium.
2)      Three mineralized zones were encountered in BH11-006: 3.0 g/t gold over 0.3 meters at 22.9 meters depth; 2.7 g/t gold over 0.8 meters with 40 g/t silver and 30 g/t tellurium; and 7.3 g/t gold over 0.6 meters with 73 g/t tellurium.
3)      The seventh drill hole encountered 6.0 g/t gold over 0.4 meters, 41 g/t silver and 74 g/t tellurium.

Additionally, 102 drill core rock samples from Big Hammer are being "fire assay-tested" for gold and "aqua regia digestion-tested" for silver and tellurium. Results are expected in early December.

JetGold's Big Hammer is a low elevation gold, silver tellurium property, accessible year-round and located 13 km southeast of Terrace, BC. It is serviced by a paved public road, existing forest resource roads and bridges and CN rail. Big Hammer was discovered in 2007 by the BC Geologic Survey and classified as a "new gold discovery."
