Bakersfield, California                         March 17, 2006                        AMEX "TIV"


Tri-Valley Corporation (AMEX-TIV) announced that its assets for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2005 had increased 37% to $19,798,730 from $14,473,326 in fiscal year 2004. Stockholder equity rose 11% to $7,562,720 in fiscal year 2005 from $6,796,903 in fiscal year 2004.


Primarily due to heavy investing forward to acquire new producing assets, including one time non-cash amounts from stock issued to purchase oil interests and mining royalties totaling some $5 million, the Company reported a loss of $9,730,071 in fiscal year 2005 compared to a loss of $1,171,005 in fiscal year 2004. Tri-Valley also made one time investments to launch a new industrial minerals joint venture in fiscal year 2005 which has begun production and is now generating increased revenues projected to exceed $3 million in 2006 and $11 million in 2007.


Revenues, particularly from the sale of oil and gas prospects, increased to $12,528,606 in fiscal year 2005, up from $4,498,670 in fiscal year 2004. However, expenses, particularly in mining exploration costs, costs of oil and gas prospects sold and general and administrative overhead increased to $22,258,677 in fiscal year 2005 compared to $5,669,675 in fiscal year 2004. These expenses included both cash and non-cash investments to buy properties with producible oil, buy back royalty burdens on mining assets, and fund the launch of a new joint industrial minerals mining joint venture.


"Last year we had several exceptional opportunities which required payment in advance of generating revenue from those projects. We took the challenge and are now receiving revenue from new oil and industrial mineral production which will add considerable value to our shares as we increase that production. Management believes this loss represents less than 2% of the future net value of just one of these assets that will be translated into Tri-Valley share value. We expect to see profitable operations by late 2006 as we ramp up production on these properties," said F. Lynn Blystone, president and chief executive officer.


The Company is buying workover and drilling rigs to assure its ability to exploit the new oil properties and build production and revenue.


"It is our goal to work over 28 idle wells, drill four core wells, and two horizontal wells yet this year on our Temblor Valley property with the aim of reaching 1,200 barrels of oil per day from just that one property," Blystone said.


He noted that the industrial minerals joint venture is scaling up production of its cinder and basalt deposits to serve California's burgeoning construction, road building, and landscaping markets. The Bakersfield area around the Company's headquarters alone has 84,000 new homes in the pipeline according to industry sources.


Blystone also advised that the Company has elected to take a 15-day extension to file its annual Form 10-K as the addition of new business had greatly increased the complexity of reporting over previous years as well as the completion of the Company's move to larger facilities, which slowed the audit process.
