Vancouver, BC - July 6 2011 - Ethos Capital Corp. (the "Company" or "Ethos") (TSX-V: ECC) (OTCQX: ETHOF) (FRANKFURT: 1ET) is pleased to announce that it has staked an additional 1,316 claims at the Hayes Property in the highly prospective White Gold District approximately 120 km south of Dawson City, Yukon. The new claims are contiguous with and along strike from Ethos' adjacent Betty Property (see November 30, 2010 News Release) and south of the Bridget Property (see March 2, 2011 News Release) which were acquired under option agreements from Shawn Ryan and Wildwood Exploration Inc. (collectively the "optionors"). The Hayes Property covers an additional 20 kilometers of the interpreted Coffee Fault structure and is situated along strike from Kaminak Gold Corporation's Coffee Property. The Board of Directors has approved an additional $650,000 to be added to the $6 million exploration budget (see May 10, 2011 News Release), to cover acquisition and exploration expenditures on the Hayes Property.

The newly staked Hayes Property claims are deemed to be Tie-In Claims under the terms of the Company's property option agreements with the optionors, and thus become subject to the terms of those agreements, including the 2% NSR and buyback provisions as disclosed in the November 30, 2010 and March 2, 2011 news releases.

Ethos now has a substantial property portfolio totaling 4,963 claims or approximately 1,038 square kilometres (103,857 hectares) in the White Gold District optioned from target generator Shawn Ryan and Wildwood Exploration Inc. Ethos has attained a dominant position along the Coffee fault, totaling 40 kilometers of strike length immediately to the east of Kaminak Gold Corporation's Coffee Property.

Ethos' five main properties, plus the small Rude Creek Property, are summarized in the following table:

The $6.6 million systematic exploration program of Ethos' properties is well underway. The regional "ridge and spur" soil sampling on the Hen, Betty, and Bridget properties is nearing completion. Prospecting and mapping surveys have identified new zones of mineralization with rock sample assay results expected within two weeks. An update of all exploration efforts is expected to be issued shortly.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Peter Tallman, P.Geo, Chief Operating Officer of Ethos Capital Corp. and Qualified Person for the Yukon projects as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
