Golden Goose reports substantial increase in gold resources at its Magino Mine

    453,000 ounces measured and indicated, 1.178 million ounces inferred, to
    depth of 500 metres

    MONTREAL, April 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Golden Goose Resources Inc. (TSX-V:
GGR) is pleased to report a substantial increase in estimated gold resources
at its wholly-owned Magino property near Wawa, Ontario. A new estimate
prepared in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of
Disclosure for Mineral Projects shows the following results:

    A report prepared by Innovexplo, an independent mining and exploration
consulting firm based in Val-d'Or, Quebec, estimates a measured and indicated
resource of 2,091,900 tonnes grading 6.74 grams gold per tonne containing
453,189 ounces of gold, at a cut-off grade of 3.0 grams gold per tonne. The
report also estimates an additional inferred resource of 5,828,800 tonnes
grading 6.29 grams gold per tonne and containing 1,178,124 ounces, at the same
cut-off grade. At an increased cut-off grade of 5.0 grams gold per tonne, the
report says, the measured and indicated resource are 1,200,300 tonnes grading
8.90 grams gold per tonne and containing 343,333 ounces. The additional
inferred resource at the 5.0 grams per tonne cut-off grade is 2,736,800 tonnes
grading 9.08 grams gold per tonne and containing 799,723 ounces.
    These resources lie between surface and a depth of 500 metres along a
strike length of 1.2 kilometres, in proximity to the old Magino mine workings.
In addition to the data used in the last resource estimate dated May 2008,
this comprehensive estimate includes the recompilation of all the historic
drill data available for the property and incorporates new data from drilling
carried out over the past three years. A total 1,286 drill holes comprising
124,118 metres of current and historical drilling, and channel sampling, and
geological mapping from old drifts were used in the estimates. The resources
were calculated over a minimum 1.5-metre mining width, and high assays were
capped at 40 grams gold per tonne. The estimation method used is polygonal on
longitudinal section.
    The Goudreau Lake Deformation Zone (GLDZ) has been traced along a strike
length of 2.1 kilometres on the Magino property, and half of it has been very
little explored. The Magino deposit, hosted by the GLDZ, remains open to the
northeast and southwest, and at depth. The Magino Mine was in production from
1988-1992, during which time it produced 105,543 ounces of gold. The full
Innovexplo report on the Magino property is expected to be filed on SEDAR
within 30 days.
    "Golden Goose is determined to move this project forward into the
feasibility stage, and getting an overall picture of our resource was a key
first step," says Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Golden Goose. "This estimate is based on an actual underground mining model
and provides a very solid basis on which to proceed."
    As previously announced, Mr. Lacoste will be replaced by Francois Perron
as President and CEO as of May 1, 2009. Mr. Perron noted that the project is
now ready to enter the prefeasibility stage, and added: "It is very exciting
for me to come on board at this juncture. Now that the resource has reached a
sufficient scale, I am looking forward to moving the project forward through
the next phases of development."

    The new estimate shows the following resources at various cut-off grades:

    The Independent Qualified Persons for the mineral resource estimate, as 
defined by Regulation 43-101, are Carl Pelletier, B.Sc., P.Geo., and Bruno
Turcotte, M.Sc., P.Geo. (InnovExplo Inc.), and the effective date of the
estimate is April 24, 2009.

    - Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves having demonstrated economic
    - Results are presented undiluted and in situ. The estimate includes 133
      gold-bearing zones and covers the Magino project area over 1,200 metres
      E-W, 500 metres N-S, and from an elevation of 0 to -500 m.
    - The resources were compiled using a minimum cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t
      Au. This cut-off must be re-evaluated in light of current market
      conditions (gold price, exchange rate and mining cost).
    - A fixed density of 2.87 g/cm3 was used.
    - Ounce (troy) = Tonnes X Grade /31.10348
    - A minimum of 1.5 m true thickness was applied, using the grade of the
      adjacent material when assayed, or a value of zero when not assayed.
    - High grade capping was done on the raw data and established at 40.0 g/t
    - No drill hole compositing was done. Resources were evaluated from drill
      hole and channel results using a polygonal on longitudinal approach.
    - Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t Au).
    - The Company is not aware of any known environmental, permitting, legal,
      title-related, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other relevant
      issue that could materially affect the Mineral Resource estimate.
    - Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding
      followed the recommendations in Regulation 43-101.
    - Number of tonnes was rounded up to the nearest hundred.
