Skyline Gold Announces Acquisition of Snip-1 Mineral Tenure

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Skyline Gold Corporation ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE: SK), a company engaged in the exploration and development of its Bronson Slope mining property in north western British Columbia's 'Golden Triangle', is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Snip-1 mineral claim in the Bronson Slope / Snip mining camp for a cash payment.

Snip-1 (Mineral Tenure 523348) is a 285 hectare mineral tenure that lies approximately 400 meters to the south east of the Company's claims and the Bronson Slope deposit. Extensive historic exploration by Placer Dome (including drilling, trenching, rock sampling, soil geochemistry and ground geophysics) was undertaken on Snip-1 in the period of 1987 to 1989. Historical drill core assay results indicated a potential continuation of the Bronson Slope mineralized porphyry system to extend southeast along strike onto the Snip-1 claim. This area of mineralization is known as the CE Zone and its precise location is subject to on-site ground surveys but is believed to be located largely on the northwest part of the Snip-1 mineral claim.

The Company will develop an exploration plan and program to further explore and quantify mineralization in the vicinity of the CE Zone. Prior to this an in-house evaluation of the historical exploration results will be undertaken.

Historic assays from the 1989 drill program yielded the following results for 3 north-easterly directed diamond drill holes on Tenure 523348 and what is believed to be the CE Zone, over an approximate strike distance of 100 metres, that is southeast of and on trend to the Bronson Slope porphyry system. There is also a potential confluence with the Snip gold-vein extension in this area. The assay information is reported in a summary memorandum dated January 23, 1991 by Ed Kimura of Placer Dome.

The Bronson Slope deposit contains an N.I. 43-101 compliant mineral resource of 225,100,000 tonnes on a measured and indicated basis and is estimated to

contain 2.6 million ounces of gold, 16.1 million ounces of silver, 694.9 million pounds of copper, and 38.2 million pounds of molybdenum.
