Highway 50 Gold Announces the Re-commencement of Drilling at Monroe

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

Highway 50 Gold Corp. ("Highway 50" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has re-commenced drilling at its Monroe Project located in southeastern British Columbia. The drill program will include two drill holes comprising approximately 1,800 metres, located to offset lead-zinc mineralization encountered in the previous drill campaign. Stratabound lead zinc mineralization has been encountered within the Sullivan Mine sequence over an area of approximately 800 metres x 350 metres. Management believes that this low grade mineralization may represent the distal edge of an ore forming system.

The Company also announces that 1,100,000 incentive stock options have been granted to directors and officers at a price of $0.25 per share for a five-year period, pursuant to its Stock Option Plan.
