Trenches in the San Antonio - Carmen Zone Assays up to 887 g/t Silver at San Miguel Project, Mexico

Tara Gold Resources Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TRGD) (FRANKFURT: T8N) is pleased to release the results of a trenching program in the central part of its San Miguel concession block near Temoris, Chihuahua, Mexico. The five trenches reported are located in the San Antonio zone which is adjoining and to the north of the San Luis zone where Paramount reported drill results that included 35.5 g/t gold across 4.0 meters. In August 2005, Tara Gold Resources signed an agreement with Paramount Gold Mining Corp. giving Paramount the right to earn up to a 70% interest in the project by spending US$2.5 million, delivering 700,000 shares, and making various payments to Tara Gold.

Paramount Gold is the operator of the project and manages the exploration program. Trenches nine through thirteen span approximately 175 meters along strike on the San Antonio - Carmen zone. Trench ZSA-09 starts approximately 50 meters north from trench ZSA-08 (88.4 meters averaging 50.2 g/t silver, including 1.0 meters of 1,300 g/t silver). Trench ZSA-10 is approximately 90 meters north of ZSA-09. Trenches ZSA-11 and ZSA-13 continue across strike to the west of ZSA-10 with approximately 50 meters between them. Trench ZSA-12 is approximately 70 meters north of ZSA-10.

Paramount's Manager of Exploration in Mexico, Bill Reed, commented: "The trenching results at San Antonio compare very well with earlier trenches in the San Luis, San Jose and La Union zones. These recently completed trenches in the San Antonio - Carmen zone have exposed a series of sub-parallel en echelon veins that extend 175 meters to the north of those previously reported trenching results with a width of more than 200 meters. This confirms our prior observation that this mineralized system is strengthening to the north. We will continue drilling this zone immediately after the start of the New Year."

The highlights of the trenching include:

ZSA-09 - 61.9 meters averaging 79.0 g/t Ag, including 2.1 meters of 625 g/t Ag with 1.24% lead, and 1.0 meters of 887 g/t Ag with 5.59% lead.

ZSA-10 - 36.5 meters averaging 56.3 g/t Ag, including 17.5 meters of 87 g/t Ag.

ZSA-12 - 30.0 meters averaging 87.7 g/t Ag, including 3.0 meters of 422 g/t Ag, and 7.0 meters of 195 g/t Ag with 1.6% zinc.

ZSA-13 - 1.0 meters 62.0 g/t Ag and 0.79% lead.

The trenches are excavated to a depth of 2-3 meters and extend from west to east across the quartz veins and stockwork quartz veins that host silver and gold mineralization in the Guazapares mining district. The trenches were cut through thin overburden to better define drill targets and spaced approximately 50 to 75 meters apart. The geology of the trenches is mapped in detail and continuous rock chip samples of no more than one meter in length are collected from the trench walls.

Drill holes have been completed on the San Antonio zone based on the trench assays listed below and the drill will continue to move north along the mineralized zone as defined by the trenches.
