CJGC Reports Additional High-Grade Gold Intercepts at the Ranch Project and Plans 10,000 Metre Drill Program for 2007

December 14, 2006

Vancouver, B.C. - Christopher James Gold Corp. (“the Company”) has completed drilling and surface sampling for 2006 at the Ranch Project, in the Toodoggone District in northern British Columbia.

Significant intersections from the final three drill holes from the project’s Thesis III Zone included:

  • 21 metres grading 6.36 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold, from 27 metres down-hole in hole A06-05; and
  • 19 metres grading 3.86 g/ gold, from 20 metres down-hole, in hole A06-04.

Results from concurrent surface exploration for new mineralized structures at the Ranch Project will be released shortly.

The Ranch Project Drill Results

The 2006 drilling program focused on the Thesis III zone, a 175 metres by 100 metres body of mineralization, defined by shallow historical drilling, containing a series of elongate bodies of bonanza-grade mineralization that plunge moderately to the southeast.  These bonanza-grade bodies are interpreted as dilated zones developed within a one kilometre-long, northwestâ€"southeast trending structure.

Drill results from the 2006 program are summarized below.  Drill holes A06-01, A06-02 and A06-03 have been previously released:

Holes A06-01, A06-02 A06-03 and A06-05 intersected one of the bonanza-grade bodies that comprise the Thesis III zone, confirming the continuity of the high-grade mineralization over a strike and down-plunge distance of approximately 75 metres.  Drill holes A06-04 and A06-06 are understood to have drilled below the same body.

Systematic and closely-spaced drilling is required to define the extent of all the bonanza-grade bodies within Thesis III, and determine the overall grade.  Similar high-grade mineralization occurs elsewhere within the system, at the Thesis II, Bonanza, and BV zones.

The Company plans to definition drill all five of these zones in 2007.  The planned 2007 drill program will entail approximately 10,000 metres of combined reverse circulation and diamond drilling in approximately 60 holes.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control
The 2006 exploration program was conducted under the supervision of Cam Graham, M.Eng., P.Eng., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.  Max Baker, PhD, Member, AusIMM is the qualified person responsible for the contents of this news release.

Drill core was sawn in half, with one half stored for future reference.  Sampling and assaying procedures were subject to a rigorous QA/QC program, which included insertion of standards and blanks for each batch of samples.  All samples were shipped in sealed packages to Acme Analytical Labs in Vancouver for preparation and analyses.
Mineralized intervals reported are down-hole lengths and may not represent the true width of mineralization.
