Canyon Gold Corp. Announces Exploration and Expansion Plans for 2013; Coverage Initiated on 'The Gold Report' Website and Content Network

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canyon Gold Corp. (OTC-QB:CGCC) a strategically positioned exploration company in a highly prospective area of Nevada, announced today its plans for exploration and expansion for 2013.

"We are pleased to present Canyon Gold as a tightly structured, well-managed exploration company with one goal: to develop and sell assets much like our neighbors did in Newmont Mining's acquisition of Fronteer Gold for $2.3 billion USD in 2011. Our company is fortunate to hold claims in the now well-known Spruce Ridge - Long Canyon Trend area with mineral formations and rock outcroppings similar to those found at the original discovery site in the Pequop Newmont Mining Claim area. We intend to both expand and explore these areas aggressively in the coming months," stated Delbert G. Blewett, President & CEO of Canyon Gold.


After positive exploration results on its completed Phase I, the company intends to commence Phase II of exploration on the initial target areas in search of a Carlin-type deposit, such as the one developed by neighboring Newmont Mining. As recommended by the geological report, this is planned for late Spring or early Summer 2013.


In an effort to broaden Canyon Gold's footprint in the region thereby increasing the potential of identifying a large Carlin-type deposit, the company intends to finalize acquisition of numerous additional claims in the Long Canyon – Spruce Ridge area that will complement our present holdings.
