Uniondale, New York, UNITED STATES

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Aug. 3, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Golden Patriot, Corp. ("Golden Patriot") (OTCBB:GPTC) (Frankfurt:GPU) is extremely pleased to announce that it has been informed by the operator that the drill program is now going to be increased to 25 holes due to an additional positive evaluation of the MMI samples. Golden Patriot has recently received Government and State approval of the 'Plan of Operations' for a multi-hole drill program on the past producing Lucky Boy Uranium Mine in Gila County, Arizona. The Plan of Operations includes: road construction, drill pad construction as well as a multi-hole drill program for approximately 6000+ ft. All environmental requirements have now been fulfilled. Golden Patriot has recently increased its land position on this past producing uranium mine to now include 26 BLM claims. Additional work is to include more geophysics/radiometric, geological sampling and mapping, which will precede the drill program expected to take place in the third quarter of this year.

Mr. Brad Rudman, President of Golden Patriot states, "Our progress is proceeding at an exciting pace right now. Golden Patriot is currently moving ahead on the uranium prospect and now the gold facet as well. Increasing the size of the drill program on the past producing Lucky Boy Uranium mine is a clear step towards fully developing this resource that could be a company maker for Golden Patriot. These are times of tremendous corporate activity for Golden Patriot and we hope our shareholders share in management's enthusiasm for the future near and long term growth of the company."

Golden Patriot has also just received confirmation that a NYSE listed gold company will initiate a sampling program on one of Golden Patriot's gold prospects. At this time the geologic work will be conducted by the major, which may lead to a full scale drill program in the future. However, there is no guarantee that either an option or joint venture agreement will be entered into.

Golden Patriot has interests in mineral properties involving uranium and gold mining. As it stands, Golden Patriot is one of the smallest market capitalized company that has interests in any present or past producing uranium mines.
