Tyhee receives additional results from Nicholas Lake Main Zone, Yellowknife Gold Project

    TSX Venture: TDC

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 2 /CNW/ - Tyhee Development Corp. (TSX Venture, TDC)
today announced additional gold and tungsten (WO(3)) results from the Nicholas
Lake Main Zone, part of its wholly-owned Yellowknife Gold Project.
    All of the diamond drillholes previously completed on the Nicholas Lake
Main Zone have been resampled to assess the potential for a bulk-mineable
resource at this location. Previously, only portions of these holes had been
assayed. The final results from this program will be released upon receipt.
    Significant intersections including 22.5 metres of 4.924 grams per tonne
(gpt) gold in N051 and 47.5 metres of 2.116 gpt gold in N048 as well as
3.4 metres of 0.223 % WO(3) in N032 and 28.5 metres of 0.042% WO3 in N029 have
been obtained.
    "These intersections continue to define broad areas of gold
mineralization within the Nicholas Lake Intrusion and adjacent metasedimentary
rocks" said Dave Webb, Tyhee's President & CEO. "Of particular interest are
the tungsten values occurring within or in close proximity to the gold
mineralization. The results are significant, both in terms of grade and
thickness on the central to eastern portion, with narrower zones appearing on
the western portion of the deposit."

drillholes are shown on the attached figure and the results are in line with
what is expected in this area.
    One diamond drill remains active on the Ormsby and Bruce Lake Zones with
a second diamond drill temporarily shutdown. Surface exploration crews have
completed the mapping and sampling of the Clan Lake and Goodwin Lake
Properties, and are now focused on mapping and sampling the BigSky Property.
Tyhee has now received land use permits for diamond drilling at all three of
its exploration properties, and will drill test targets identified in the
current exploration program.

    About Tyhee Development Corp.

    Tyhee Development Corp. is a gold exploration and development company
currently focused on the historic Yellowknife Gold Camp, NWT, Canada. It is
the largest property holder in the historic camp, and has the largest
exploration and development program underway in the region. Its principal
asset is the advanced-stage Yellowknife Gold Project, which consists of 6,625
hectares (15,481 acres) of mining leases located 90 km (56 miles) north of
Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. Additional gold properties have been acquired within
the Yellowknife Gold Belt and exploration of these targets has commenced.
    Tyhee completed fire assays on drill core samples using 30 gram aliquots
with ICP-ES finish for gold analyses, prepared at Acme Analytical Laboratories
Ltd. in Yellowknife, and finished at Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd in
Vancouver. A semi-quantitative multi-element analysis is run on 0.5 gm aliquot
samples leached in a hot aqua regia solution and measured using ICPES
techniques. All elevated tungsten values are then reanalysed on 0.5 gm
aliquots digested using phosphoric acid and measured using ICP ES techniques.
Tyhee conducts a rigorous QA/QC program of inserting blanks and duplicates in
the field and standards in the laboratory. The laboratory also conducted their
own independent QA/QC program including inserting their own standards and
rerunning samples from pulped material and reject material. These results were
provided to Tyhee. All standards, duplicates, blanks and check assays returned
acceptable results. Dr. D.R. Webb, PhD, P.Geol., the designated QP within the
meaning of NI 43-101, has reviewed this release and approves of its content.


    Tyhee's shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "TDC".
