Drilling Program Updates on Nevada Gold Projects

June 25, 2007

White Rock, B.C. – Carlin Gold Corporation (TSX Venture, CGD), ("Carlin" or the "Company") ihas completed Phase I reverse circulation drilling programs at theCompany’s Golconda Summit project, Humboldt County, Nevada, and the Iowa Canyon project, Lander County, Nevada. The geologic setting and the Company’s exploration work program on both properties have been described in previous news releases.

The main target at Golconda Summit was favorable stratigraphy that theCompany’s geologists projected to occur under the mineralized trenches completed by the Company and reported on previously. The trenches encountered gold mineralization up to 80 feet grading 4.90 grams/tonne gold in altered rocks of the Havallah Sequence. The Havallah Sequence occurs in the upper plate of the regionally important Golconda Thrust fault. Although the stratigraphic target under the trenches was blind, the favorable stratigraphy, consisting of the Antler Limestone and Edna Mountain Formation, is mapped in the lower plate of the Golconda Thrust on the west side of the property, approximately 2,500 feet west of the trenches. Company geologists considered these units to be potentially favorable because they, or their stratigraphic equivalents, are host to gold ore at nearby historic and current gold operations on the Getchell and Battle Mountain-Eureka trends.

Four holes totaling 2,380 feet were completed at Golconda Summit. Two of the holes (G-1, G-2) were drilled directly under the mineralized trenches. All the holes penetrated the Golconda Thrust fault, as well as variable thicknesses of Edna Mountain Formation in the lower plate of the Golconda Thrust. Hole G-4 also penetrated a thin sliver of Antler Limestone in the lower plate, occurring stratigraphically below the Edna Mountain Formation. Three of the holes (G-1, G-2, G-3) encountered weak gold mineralization in the upper plate Havallah Sequence, but the target lower plate stratigraphy contained no significant values. G-4 did contain weak mineralization at the Golconda Thrust fault contact.

At the Iowa Canyon project, the Company completed 12 holes totaling 6,212 feet. The program was designed to test both sedimentary-hosted (Carlin-style) mineralization hosted in favorable Paleozoic lithologies and epithermal mineralization hosted in silicified Tertiary volcanic rocks. The program tested three target areas:

1. A north-northwest trending structural zone defined by geologic mapping and aground magnetics anomaly (with nearby previous drill holes containing anomalous gold).

2. A north-south to north-northeast trending structural zone originating at the old fluorite workings and trending out toward the covered pediment.

3. A northeast "graben" defined by ground magnetics (with nearby drill holescontaining up to 1.2 g/t gold).

10 of the 12 holes tested targets 1 and 2 above, with 2 holes drilled at target 3.

Drill results confirmed weak mineralization encountered in exploration drilling programs conducted by previous operators, but strong values were not encountered. Best results were in IC-8 at 395-445 feet (0.379 g/t Au), in strongly silicified and pyritized Paleozoic basement rocks directly below the overlying Tertiary volcanics.

The Company is evaluating the results and determining how to proceed with both the Golconda Summit and Iowa Canyon projects.
