StrataGold discovers new gold zones at Tassawini, Guyana

    VANCOUVER, June 11 /CNW/ - Vancouver, BC - StrataGold Corporation
(SGV-TSX) is pleased to report the discovery of three new gold zones within
the Clutch anomaly, at its 100% indirectly owned Tassawini project, Guyana,
with results from 38 additional reverse circulation (RC) holes. StrataGold
completed a total of 15,844.22 metres (m) of RC drilling in four hundred and
sixty four (464) holes in 2007. These results were not included in the
recently announced resource estimate (see news release dated June 10, 2008)
and demonstrate the good potential to identify additional gold mineralization
in close proximity to the existing compliant gold resource areas at Tassawini
and within the numerous untested gold anomalies on the Tassawini property.
Drilling has demonstrated that gold mineralization at Clutch is highly folded
with some holes terminating in mineralization. At this time there is not
enough information to correctly determine true width.

    RC Drill Results - Clutch

    Highlights of the RC drilling from Clutch include F1420 - 1.40 grams per
tonne (g/t) gold over 10.67 m; F1421 - 0.70 g/t over 21.34 m; and F1528 -
1.01 g/t over 12.19 m. Additional near surface gold mineralization in
saprolite was identified in holes F765, F1425 and F1537.

    Quality Control and Assurance of Samples

    A rigorous Quality Control and Assurance program (QC/QA) is in place,
using control samples and duplicates, as well as Chain of Custody protocols,
under the supervision of Bill Yeomans, P.Geo., General Manager, Exploration
South America. Tamperproof sample bags with zip lock tags are being utilized
for all of the drill samples. The Tassawini samples were freighted by air in
sealed containers to be analyzed at either ALS Chemex in Vancouver or to the
ACME sample prep facility located in Georgetown, Guyana. The samples prepped
in the ACME's Georgetown facility are air freighted to the ACME analytical
laboratory in Santiago, Chile for analysis. Both ALS Chemex and ACME are
recognized as ISO 9000 registered laboratories. The control samples, blank and
duplicate assay results received for the drilling program demonstrated to
StrataGold that the results are considered reliable.
    Bill Yeomans, P.Geo., General Manager, Exploration South America, has
reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release.

    This news release of StrataGold Corporation (the "Company") contains
statements that constitute "forward-looking statements." Such forward-looking
statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors
that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or
developments in our industry, to differ materially from the anticipated
results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such
forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements are statements that are
not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the
words "expects," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "intends," "estimates,"
"projects," "potential" and similar expressions, or that events or conditions
"will," "would," "may," "could" or "should" occur. Information inferred from
the interpretation of drilling results and information concerning mineral
resource estimates may also be deemed to be forward looking statements, as
such information constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present
when and if a project is actually developed. Forward-looking statements in
this document include statements regarding: the Company's expectations
regarding drilling and exploration activities on properties in which the
Company has an interest; and the Company's statements regarding estimates of
resources on properties in which the Company has an interest. There can be no
assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate. Actual results and
future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such
statements, and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these
forward-looking statements that speak only as of their respective dates.
Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from
the Company's expectations include among others, risks related to fluctuations
in mineral prices; uncertainties related to raising sufficient financing to
fund planned work in a timely manner and on acceptable terms; changes in
planned work resulting from weather, logistical, technical or other factors;
the possibility that results of work will not fulfill expectations and realize
the perceived potential of the Company's properties; uncertainties involved in
the estimation of resources; the possibility that required permits may not be
obtained on a timely manner or at all; the possibility that capital and
operating costs may be higher than currently estimated and may preclude
commercial development or render operations uneconomic; the possibility that
the estimated recovery rates may not be achieved; risk of accidents, equipment
breakdowns and labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties or
interruptions; the possibility of cost overruns or unanticipated expenses in
the work program; the risk of environmental contamination or damage resulting
from the Company's operations; risks associated with title to mineral
properties; and other risks and uncertainties discussed under the heading
"Risk Factors" in Section 5.2 of the Company's Annual Information Form filed
on SEDAR and elsewhere in the Company's documents filed from time to time with
the Toronto Stock Exchange and Canadian securities regulators. These
statements are based on a number of assumptions, including assumptions
regarding general market conditions, the availability of financing for
proposed transactions and programs on reasonable terms, and the ability of
outside service providers to deliver services in a satisfactory and timely
manner. Forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, estimates and
opinions of the Company's management on the date the statements are made.
Except as expressly required by applicable securities laws, the Corporation
undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements in the
event that management's beliefs, estimates or opinions, or other factors,
should change.
