Endurance Announces Assay Results From Pardo Diamond Drilling Program



News Release 07-19

Endurance Gold Corporation (EDG - TSX.V) announces assay results from a 56 hole, 653 metre diamond drilling program on the Pardo Property, located 65 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, in east-central Ontario. This program represents the Company's first significant drilling effort at Pardo, which covers a 24 square kilometre area of the Proterozoic aged Cobalt Embayment, where basal conglomerates rest unconformably on Archean aged sediments. The program targeted strong IP anomalies in the vicinity of and along strike from surface sampling results returned in late 2006, of 3.5 grams per tonne ("gpt") Au across 13 metres., in an area referred to as Trench Number 2.

Thirty-seven of the holes (Holes PD-07-01 through 39) were drilled in the immediate Trench 2 Area. The holes, all vertical, tested the flat lying basal conglomerate on ten metre centres, over an area measuring approximately fifty by fifty metres.

Holes 50 through 62 tested the IP anomaly immediately south and east of the Trench 2 Area, and were drilled on 25 metre centres. Holes 65 through 69 were drilled across the IP anomaly at a location 100 metres south of Trench 2. One hole (PD-07-43) was drilled 100 metres north of the Trench 2 area, but did not encounter the targeted conglomerate

The table below summarizes the thickness of the encountered conglomerate horizon, and the arithmetic average of gold analyses returned from typically one metre samples from that horizon. Higher grade intercepts internal to the average value are reported as "Includes". Note that no minimum cut-off grade was used in calculating the average grade of the intercept.

Maps illustrating the respective location of all drill holes with reported grades will be posted to the Company's website immediately following publication of this News Release.

All samples were submitted to Accurassay Laboratories in Sudbury, Ontario, where they were crushed and pulverized, prior to being forwarded to the primary Accurassay facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario. At that location, all samples were analyzed using a 30 gram fire assay technique. Accurassay routinely performed duplicate analyses of pulps.

The company, in order to better understand the gold distribution within the mineralized basal conglomerate horizon, is completing an additional set of analyses. Selected samples returning in excess of 0.250 gpt Au are being re-assayed by a Screen Fire Metallics method, that uses a larger 1000 gram cut from the original sample, and analyzes various size fractions from that larger sample to determine if there is a "nugget effect" (relatively coarse free gold grains) within the sample. In addition, the majority of samples displaying significant sulphide content will be analyzed by cyanide digestion. This involves pulverizing the complete remaining sample (approximately 4.0 kilograms per metre) and digesting that sample in a cyanide solution under agitation ("bottle rolling") for a period of 24 hours. The cyanide solution is then analyzed for gold content. Screen Fire Metallic results are expected by mid-October, and cyanidation results by the end of October, 2007.

The Company is also awaiting the results of approximately 1000 humus geochemical samples collected on the property in July, 2007.

These results continue to point to a substantial gold mineralizing system at the base of the Proterozoic sedimentary basin. While the results are mixed, there are significant gold intercepts within the zones drilled to date, and the large property remains only very partially tested. The immediate goal is to better understand the gold distribution within the zones recently drilled, through completion of additional larger volume assaying. The Company will then focus on defining areas where the basal conglomerate horizon thickens, and using IP and humus geochemistry, define a series of priority targets for the next round of drilling.

Endurance Gold is earning a 100% interest in the 2,864 hectare Pardo Property by making cash payments of $100,000 (of which $15,000 has been paid) and issuing 200,000 shares (of which 30,000 have been issued) by November 16, 2009.
