Golden Arch Resources Ltd. announces work program on Wakefield Lakes, Saskatchewan zinc project

    GAI:    TSX Venture                                 Exemption 12g3 - 2(b)
    GARCF:  O.T.C                                        SEC File No. 82-659


    VANCOUVER, June 18 /CNW/ - Les Kjosness, President, reports the Company
along with its joint venture participant, has applied for a permit for its
2007 plan of operations for a diamond drilling program on the Wakefield Lakes
zinc project to:

    a)  verify the previous results attained by Noranda and Falconbridge;

    b)  extend the known George Lake deposit, which is open in all
        directions, and

    c)  to explore at least two other undeveloped deposits on the same trend
        which were indicated by previous drilling.

    Wakefield Lakes is located approximately 300 kms northeast of La Ronge,
Saskatchewan, 15 kms east of an all purpose gravel road, maintained to access
other year round operations.
    Golden Arch has obtained an option to acquire an 80% interest in the
Wakefield Lakes property, which contains the George Lake Zinc Zone. The
property consists of six claims, covering 3,669 hectares, and straddles a
steeply dipping zinc and lead mineralized bedded quartzite zone (the Wakefield
Zone) that hosts several concordant zinc deposits. One of these deposits, the
George Lake deposit, has a historically published resource of 2.9 million tons
at 3.67% zinc and 0.53% lead, using a 2% zinc cut-off. (An independent
verification of these reported Mineral Reserves has not yet been completed,
and they are reported here solely as historical Mineral Reserve Estimates).
    Previous drilling by Falconbridge indicates the possibility of a
core-zone of mineralization grading greater than 5% zinc, which appears to be
plunging to the east and open to the east and down dip. The Wakefield Zone has
a strike length approximately 8 km long and is generally unexplored.
    Application has been made for a permit to allow a program, which consists
of creating or upgrading approximately 22 kms of road to access 21 different
areas to create drill pad locations. A permit has been requested to allow from
one to five drill holes on each drill site. The first phase of this program
will consist of approximately 4000 feet of NQ diamond drilling in seven drill
holes as per the qualifying report recommendations. The funding for this
program has been provided from flow-through funds raised in a recent private

    On behalf of the Board of Directors
