ZEUS IP Survey Outlines Additional Potential at Entree's Heruga Deposit, Mongolia

VANCOUVER, November 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Entree Gold Inc. (TSX:ETG; NYSE Amex:EGI; Frankfurt:EKA - "Entree" or the "Company") announces that it has received ZEUS induced polarization (IP) survey results which cover the Company's Heruga deposit along with preliminary results from surveys over the Hugo North Extension deposit. The survey was designed to further test the full extent of the chain of deposits associated with the Oyu Tolgoi mineralized trend, which currently continues along strike for over 12 kilometres.

"Entree's Lookout Hill property hosts the northern and southern extensions of the 12 kilometre Oyu Tolgoi mineralized system. Oyu Tolgoi has evolved into one of the premier copper-gold porphyry camps in the world and the results of this survey support our contention that significant potential exists to expand the known resources within the district, including Lookout Hill," stated Greg Crowe, Entree's President and CEO.

ZEUS is a proprietary induced polarization (IP) and resistivity technique licensed in Mongolia by GoviEx Gold Inc. and represents the next generation of IP technology. This new technology enables identification of targets to depths of up to 3,500 metres. ZEUS was recently used to survey over the Heruga resource area on Entree's Javhlant mining licence and the Hugo North Extension resource area on Entree's Shivee Tolgoi mining licence. The Hugo North Extension and Heruga deposits were discovered while Ivanhoe Mines' was conducting exploration work on Entree's Lookout Hill property during the earn-in phase, prior to the formation of a joint venture between the two companies in 2008.

A vertical cross section of the data through Entree's Heruga Deposit indicates the IP signature extends to depth, well below the deepest mineralized drill intercepts at 1,300 m (see map on http://www.entreegold.com). Earlier IP surveys in this area further suggest the Heruga mineralized trend may be offset to the west, but continues as a chargeability high for 4 kilometres further south on Entree's Javhlant licence. This highly prospective area remains to be drill tested.

The survey also tested the Hugo North and Hugo North Extension deposits. The data clearly indicates additional potential to depth and along strike to the north. In contrast to the close spatial association with IP anomalies seen at the Central, Southern Oyu and Heruga deposits, the high grade Hugo North and Hugo North Extension deposits occur along the eastern flank of the ZEUS IP anomaly.

The Hugo North Extension resource area, which hosts the richest mineralization defined along the Oyu Tolgoi mineralized trend to date, extends for 625 metres north of the Entree-Ivanhoe Mines joint venture boundary. A drill hole located approximately 1,300 metres north of the property boundary (drill hole EGD081B) intersected Hugo North style mineralization at a vertical depth of approximately 1,200 metres, suggesting that the mineralization continues to the north, well past the current limit of defined resources and extent of detailed drilling. There is an additional 8 kilometres of highly prospective ground along strike to the north of Hugo North Extension that has received minimal drill testing.

The ZEUS system appears to be effective in outlining new areas of exploration potential, especially to significantly greater depths than previously possible. It is a useful tool to apply in areas where traditional geophysical methods (conventional IP and magnetometer) have defined shallower targets. Future targets could include the southwestern continuation of the Heruga deposit, where the deposit is nearer surface, and the projected continuation of the Oyu Tolgoi trend to the north of Entree's Hugo North Extension deposit.
