Corporate Update

Vancouver, British Columbia -- Highway 50 Gold Corp. (TSX.V -- HWY)

Highway 50 Gold Corp. ("Highway 50" or the "Company") has recommenced field work on its Nevada exploration projects with a view to follow-up drilling when the Company has obtained the necessary financing. The Company holds title to three claim areas that were chosen because of their proximity to deep seated geologic architectures which management believes may host large quantities of gold.

Past exploration drilling on the Company's Johnson Canyon/Porter Canyon claims identified a probable "lag" gold occurrence which may be similar in character to the Cortez Pediment deposit which was shed off the adjacent Cortez Hills Tier 1 gold mine. The Johnson Canyon/Porter Canyon project is located along the western edge of the Quito Mine lower-plate window. The northwest corner of this window exhibits geologic elements that are markedly similar to the northwest corner of the Cortez window where the former producing Cortez Mine and currently producing Cortez Hills Mine are located.

Initial focus of the upcoming exploration work will be on the Johnson Canyon/Porter Canyon claims where the Company has permitted a pattern of six drill holes at the northwest corner of the Quito Mine window. Impetus for this drilling is previously executed geophysical surveys over the target area including magnetic, gravity and controlled source audio-frequency magnetotellurics.

Highway 50 is led by the same group of exploration geologists who discovered the Lindero gold deposit in Salta Province, northwestern Argentina which is currently being constructed by Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. The team also founded White Knight Resources which was acquired by U.S. Gold Corp. (now McEwen Mining) in 2007 for $160 million for its Nevada exploration portfolio, which included McEwen Mining's currently operating Gold Bar Mine.

The scientific and technical disclosure in this news release has been approved by Gordon P. Leask, P. Eng., President and CEO of Highway 50 Gold Corp. and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects).
