August 30, 2007

White Rock, B.C. – Carlin Gold Corporation (TSX Venture, CGD), ("Carlin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a 10 year, renewable lease agreement on a precious metals prospect in Lander County, Nevada, located near the town of Battle Mountain on the Battle Mountain – Eureka Mineral Trend. The property consists of patented claims and fee land totaling approximately 625 acres. It was the site of historic silver production during 1882 to 1929.

Under the terms of the agreement the Company has made an initial payment of US$15,000. The agreement provides for annual payments, totaling $335,000 over the next 10 years, which escalate to US$100,000 on the eleventh anniversary and which continue as long as any development or mining operations are being carried out. All annual payments are advances against a net smelter return royalty ranging from 3.25% at a gold price of US$500 per ounce or less, to 5.25% at a gold price of greater than US$1,000. The agreement requires the Company to complete US$200,000 in exploration expenditures, including 6,000 feet of drilling, during the first 2 years of the agreement, and $300,000 during the following three years. The Company has the right to terminate the lease at any time, subject to the requirement to complete the US$200,000 of drilling expenditures.

The Company intends to initiate data compilation and will plan a subsequent field program which will include geologic mapping and geochemical sampling.
