Christopher James Withdraws From The Ranch Property

January 8, 2008

Christopher James Gold Corp. (“CJGC†or the “Companyâ€) announces that, due to the discouraging results from the 2007 drill program on the Ranch Project, the Company has decided not to continue with the option agreement signed in June 2006, which gave the Company control of the property through the purchase of Guardsmen Resources Inc (Guardsmen). 

Drill results from the first 29 drill holes at the Ranch completed in the third quarter of 2007, indicated that mineralization at the Bonanza Zone, one of three principal areas of known mineralization at the Ranch, did not extend laterally beyond the limits shown by previous drilling. Furthermore mineralization did not extend vertically for more than 75 metres below the current surface (see News Releases  August 14, 2007 and September 26, 2007).  The results from  the Thesis II, Thesis III and Mickey Zones were also discouraging. 

Company President Dr. E Max Baker commented; “The Company’s exploration philosophy is to continue evaluating exploration targets which have potential for far larger resources than the Ranch Property demonstrated.  In the meantime we are focusing on the Little Fort and Big Kidd properties.

“During 2007 we worked on our Little Fort projects, a 4300 hectare package 5 km southwest of Newmac’s Crazy Fox tungsten-molybdenum project.  CJGC has delineated an area of anomalous copper, gold, molybdenum, with values of up to 10 g/t gold, and 0.12% molybdenum, in the northeast part of our property, the area closest to the Crazy Fox prospect.  In addition, Candorado Operating Co. have been intersecting significant gold and copper values in skarns, immediately south of our Little Fort property.

“The detailed airborne magnetic and electromagnetic surveys flown by the Company in 2007 show that the sedimentary package which hosts the skarn mineralization on the Little Fort property extends for approximately 3000 metres of strike length (see for more details).  A number of high-priority skarn-type targets identified from the detailed magnetic data will be trenched during the 2008 exploration season.

“The Company will also re-evaluate data from the Big Kidd project situated south of Merritt, B.C.,  emphasizing the potential for high-grade gold mineralization adjacent to the large low-grade gold-bearing breccias body discovered by previous operators. “
