Golden Goose intersects new gold-bearing structures near its Magino deposit

MONTREAL, Feb. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Golden Goose Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GGR) (the Company) is pleased to announce that it has received the first half of results of drilling on its Magino property near Wawa, Ontario. The first phase of the program consists of about 4,000 metres of diamond drilling, outside but near the current Magino resource envelope.

Drilling was aimed at testing targets in the volcanic rocks, on the south eastern part of the property. Seven (7) mineralized structure with a strike length several hundreds of metres long were intercepted in the volcanic rocks at a depth of about 150 metres. These structures consist of mineralized alteration zones with associated quartz veins, indicating strong gold-bearing potential. The alteration zones are in the range from 1m to 12m (up to 10 m true width) in thickness.

Hole 09-6 also returned a high-grade intercept in a granodiorite near the south contact with the volcanics, namely 4.73 g/t Au over 4.0 metres, including 16.92 g/t Au over 1.0 metre.

The best results obtained in Holes 09-1 to 09-7 were as follows:

    Hole                       From (m)     To (m)   Length (m)   Gold (g/t)

At the present time we estimate true width based on the -75 degree dip of the main zone. Current drilling dip varies from -45 to -50 degrees.

The second part of the current drilling program will test the western extensions of the known resource based on results obtained in historical drilling and the new structural interpretation.

The scoping study on the 43-101 resource (initially announced May 30th, 2009) for the Magino project is progressing on schedule for completion in March 2010. The Magino project currently has an estimated measured and indicated resource of in excess of 453,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 6.74 g/t and an inferred resource of 1,100,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 6.29 g/t. This resource was calculated using a cutoff grade of 3.0 g/t; using a higher cutoff of 5.0 g/t results in a measured and indicated resource of approximately 345,000 ounces grading 8.90 g/t and an inferred resource of approximately 800,000 ounces grading 9.08 g/t.

Samples were transported directly to the Accurassays laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario and assayed using standard fire assay methods.
