NOVUS GOLD CORP. GRANTED OPTION TO ACQUIRE 100% OF THE DOROTHEA GOLD PROPERTY, ONTARIO

Vancouver, May 26, 2010 – Novus Gold Corp. (“Novus” or the “Company”, TSX-V: NOV) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in one mineral claim comprising 192 hectares in the Thunder Bay Mining District of Ontario (the “Dorothea Gold Property”).

Pursuant to the option agreement, Novus has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Dorothea Gold Property by paying the vendor $102,500 over a period of four years, of which $7,500 is the initial payment, and issuing 25,000 shares to the vendor. Upon the exercise of the option, the vendor will retain a 2.0% net smelter returns royalty on the Dorothea Gold Property, 1.5% of which may be repurchased by the Company for $500,000. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

The main target of interest on the Property is the Hillside showing, discovered in the early 1990s. The showing consists of a poorly exposed shear zone in mafic volcanics, cut by multiple quartz stringers, some with visible gold. Assays of grab samples of vein material ranged up to 42 g/T Au.
