Unigold Inc. announces trenching results on "Juan del Bosque" discovered in June 2007


    TORONTO, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - Unigold Inc. ("Unigold" or the "Company")
(TSX-V: UGD) is pleased to announce results from the first two trenches, out
of six trenches completed or planified, on the latest discovery from June
2007. Trench JB-07-01 is showing barite stockwork zone underlying a baritic
silicified brick-red zone (jasperoid) grading more a 5 g/t of gold over
5 meters. Trench JB-07-02 is showing a very-hard brick-red highly siliceous
rock capping a barite veinlets stockwork zone grading above 1 g/t of gold for
22 meters. This new gold zone discovery is located on the eastern flank of the
Montazo-Guano large alteration zone, nine kilometres northeast of the Los
Candelones high-sulfidation epithermal gold deposit. This zone, named Juan del
Bosque after the geologist who discovered it, has been traced over a 900 metre
strike length. Grab samples taken randomly over half a kilometre in length
from outcropping barite-bearing advanced argillic altered rocks graded locally
above 10 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (see results from previous press release).
Recently, new grabs have been taken outside the known area in order to extend
the zone. Sample came from jasperoid unit widely exposed in this outcropping
area and the results returned 22.2 g/t of gold, Furthermore, several angular
barite-bearing silicified and argillized blocks have been discovered up to
300 metres east from the outcropping zone, thus extending the gold-zone
possible strike length in the north east direction. A broad gold in soil
anomaly overlaps the whole Juan del Bosque zone. Soil samples grading up to
0.6 g/t gold have been encountered.

    Discovery of the Juan del Bosque zone by Unigold geologists was possible
by a follow-up of an exploration model recently published for the giant
Pueblo-Viejo deposit (Sillitoe et al., 2007, Economic Geology, vol. 101, pp.
1427-1435). Pueblo Viejo is a Dominican Republic high-sulfidation epithermal
gold (19 million ounces) silver-zinc deposit occurring in volcano-sedimentary
breccia and conglomerate as well as lacustrine carbonaceous siltstone and
sandstone. Sillitoe et al. (2007)'s model suggests that Pueblo Viejo as of
blind high-sulfidation gold deposit occurring beneath barren limestone cover,
which is what the Juan del Bosque zone seems to be.
    Trenching on the Juan del Bosque zone and will be followed by diamond
drilling and induced polarization survey to trace the gold-bearing zone under
the southeast-dipping limestone sequence.
    The Juan del Bosque zone occurs at the base of a shallow-water
sedimentary sequence which conformably overlies a dacitic tuff sequence.
Alteration grades from slightly propylitic to advance argillic in the dacitic
tuffs. Gold mineralization occurs on the fringe of a low-magnetic
pyrite-bearing advanced argillic zone which is bordered by propylitized
magnetite-bearing dacitic tuffs exhibiting positive aeromagnetic features. The
overlying sedimentary sequence includes limestone, and non-calcareous
sandstone and siltstone. A black thinly-laminated cherty carbonaceous mudstone
has also been observed in this sedimentary pile. Silicified bedded green
limestones have been observed resting directly on the southern Juan del Bosque
gold-barite showings.
    Assays were done at the SGS laboratory in Toronto by fire assay procedure
and gravimetric finish and the reported length represents true width section.

    About Unigold Inc.
    Unigold Inc. is exploring to find and develop gold deposits on its
100-per-cent-owned 226 km(2) Neita property located in the Dominican Republic.
Having the largest land package in the Dominican Republic, the goal is to
target bulk tonnage, open pittable, oxide gold deposits within a similar
setting to the world class Pueblo Viejo gold project which occurs within a
broad northwest trending Cretaceous age volcanic greenstone belt that
transects the Dominican Republic. The economics of any discovery will be
significantly improved by the fact that Unigold is benefiting from an 18-year
holiday on all corporate taxes, sales taxes and import duties in the Dominican
