Highway 50 Gold to Acquire Gold Knob Property, Nevada

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

Highway 50 Gold Corp. (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a 100% interest in 378 unpatented claims comprising the Gold Knob property located in Pershing County, southwest of Winnemucca, Nevada.

The Hot Springs window hosts numerous occurrences of Carlin-type gold mineralization in both upper- and lower-plate rocks with grab assays up to 3 oz/ton Au (100 g/t Au). Structurally, the window sits at the projected intersection of the Northern Nevada Rift Central, the westward projection of the Caetano Trough, and the southernmost projection of the Getchell Trend.

Gravity and magnetic surveys have been executed over most of the property. Several interesting geophysical features resulted from this work and CSAMT surveys are recommended prior to drilling. Previous drilling in the immediate vicinity of the Gold Knob showing intersected erratic gold values with the best being 17 m of 0.583 g/t gold in lower-plate marble and 12 m at 0.725 g/t gold just under the Roberts Mountains Thrust in hole BV-3.

The Company entered into an agreement to purchase a 100% interest in the Gold Knob claims by paying US$100,000 and the issuance of 200,000 common shares of the Company subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. There is a 3% net smelter return reserved to the vendor, of which up to 2% can be purchased by the Company for US$1,000,000 per percentage point.
