    "We are pleased that shareholders of the three target companies have
accepted our offer! We will now move quickly to integrate these four companies
and drive forward. During this process, US Gold has accomplished many of the
goals I set for the Company in order to create Nevada's premier exploration
company: We strengthened the treasury, increased our trading liquidity by
listing our common shares on the American and Toronto Stock Exchanges and
began an aggressive $30 million exploration program at our Tonkin Project.
These three acquisitions will take us one step closer to achieving our goal,
with a large discovery being the last and most exciting on the list," stated
Rob McEwen, Chairman and CEO of US Gold.
    Under the offers, US Gold Canadian Acquisition Corporation offered 0.35
of an exchangeable share for each outstanding White Knight Resources common
share, 0.23 of an exchangeable share for each Nevada Pacific Gold common share
and 0.26 of an exchangeable share for each Tone Resources common share. The
aggregate number of exchangeable shares to be issued in the offers by US Gold
Canadian Acquisition Corporation will be approximately 38,037,179. It is
anticipated that certificates for the exchangeable shares will be delivered
next week.
    Now that the offers have expired, US Gold and US Gold Canadian
Acquisition Corporation intend to implement a subsequent acquisition
transaction under Canadian law, in order to acquire full ownership of each of
the target companies.
