Drilling Continues to Intersect Wide Oxide and Sulphide Gold Mineralization at Golden China's Beyinhar Gold Project - Including 69 m @1.2g/t; 52 m @1.1g/t; and 39m @ 1.7g/t


    TORONTO, June 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Golden China Resources Corporation
(GCX: TSX, ASX) today announced excellent results for the Company's 2007
drilling program at its Beyinhar gold project, located in the Inner Mongolia
Autonomous Region (China). The 2007 program continues to delineate a
consistent and shallow oxide gold deposit to the southwest of the previously
established mineralization with exceptional drill intercepts, including BYD160
with 69 metres averaging 1.16 g/t gold. The latest results continue to
demonstrate an ongoing higher-grade zone within this broad gold-mineralized

    Highlights of Golden China's 2007 interim drilling results include:

    - BYD160: 68.6 metres at 1.16 g/t gold
    - BYD157: 52 metres at 1.1 g/t gold
    - BYD153: 39.2 metres at 1.73 g/t gold

    "The progress at Beyinhar over the past six months has been excellent. In
addition to the drilling results we're seeing today, we are particularly
pleased with the findings of a recent scoping study, filed on SEDAR on May 17,
2007, which demonstrate that Beyinhar has the potential to produce
100,000 ounces per annum at an average cost of between US$260 and US$280
ounce, well below industry average," said Greg Starr, President and CEO of
Golden China Resources. "In terms of our objectives, we are still on track to
meet our medium-term target of mine development in April 2008 and a first gold
pour by late 2008. Leading up to this, the market can expect to see an updated
Canadian National Instrument 43-101 compliant independent mineral resource
estimate for Beyinhar this October (2007), which will form part of the
Beyinhar Feasibility Study, expected for release in December 2007."
    Golden China's 2007 Beyinhar drilling program at Beyinhar continues to
successfully delineate a wide, continuous, shallow, mostly oxide gold deposit,
approximately 150-200 metres wide, 80-110 metres deep and at least
2 kilometres long. The deposit is demonstrably open along strike and down-dip.
    Of Golden China's scheduled 17,000 metre 2007 exploration program, the
company has drilled a total of 22 holes encompassing 3,700 metres. The
drilling primarily focuses on a 50 metre spaced grid program with the overall
objective of increasing measured and indicated resources at Beyinhar from
475,000 to over 1 million ounces by upgrading the inferred resource to the
indicated category and expanding the resource to the southwest (towards the
100%-owned exploration license and the sulphide mineralization identified at
depths as shallow as 60 metres) as well as the northeast.
    Consisting predominantly of 60 degrees dipping southeast-oriented drill
holes, the program is focused on gold mineralization occurring along the
generally steep, north-dipping, northeast-trending, gold-productive Beyinhar
Shear Zone, which has been traced on surface for at least three kilometres.
Encouraging results continue to demonstrate strong continuity of the gold
mineralization in both the oxide and sulphide zones. Drilling has further
extended mineralization to the southwest with an increasing trend of a more
dominant sulphide mineralization at shallower depths. This is highlighted by
significant gold intercepts along cross section 10250E (Figs. 1 & 2), 150m
west from the current defined resource block, and step out holes as far as
9950E, including BYD157, BYD158 and BYD159 (Fig. 2).
    The primary high grade gold mineralization is traced to classic
epithermal quartz veins and breccias. The presence of a largely flared up
rhyolite unit north of the shear is mainly responsible for the geometry of
this extensive gold mineralisation providing apparent rheological contrast
with the primarily schistoic/gneissic host rocks (Fig. 2).

    About Beyinhar

    Golden China's Beyinhar gold project lies along the Sonid Zouqi gold
corridor within the Inner Mongolia Fold Belt Region, a productive orogenic
belt hosting several skarn, shear-hosted, orogenic/mesothermal veins and
porphyry Cu-Au deposits. This Fold Belt region hosts the world-class Oyu
Tolgoi copper-gold deposit (1.39 billion tonnes @ 1.33 % copper and 0.47 g/t
gold), and CSH 217 shear-hosted gold deposit (109 million tonnes @
0.83 g/t gold).
    Beyinhar is a near surface, bulk-mineable oxide, and heap leachable gold
deposit. It is only about 1.5 kilometres from the Hohhot-Xilinhot highway in
proximity to a well-established provincial railway line and within an easily
accessible power grid supply.
    Golden China has released a NI 43-101 compliant Scoping Study on the
Beyinhar gold project, which is available on the company's website
(http://www.goldenchina.ca/Default.aspx?id=32) and on SEDAR (www.SEDAR.com).

    Qualified Person

    Alfonso Latorre (MAusIMM), Golden China's Beyinhar Project Manager and the
Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, is overseeing the
company's exploration work at Beyinhar and supervised the preparation of the
information in this release. Samples from Beyinhar were prepared and assayed
by the Intertek Labs in Beijing, China. Samples were assayed for gold by fire
assay (50 gram) with AAS finish. Golden China inserted blanks, standard and
duplicate samples at sample preparation stage to monitor the quality control
of the assay data. Golden China has established and maintains a comprehensive
quality control-quality assurance (QA/QC) program.
