Kilo Recommences Drilling Operations on its Somituri Project, DRC

Kilo Recommences Drilling Operations on its Somituri Project, DRC 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- Kilo Goldmines Ltd.
("Kilo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) is pleased
to announce that it has recommenced drilling operations on its Imbo
licence on Saturday March 23rd. 
The Company has set out a diamond drilling program for 2013 which
will initially focus on the Kitenge and Manzako Prospects, as well as
testing of the magnetic geophysical anomaly discovered by the 2012
airborne geophysical survey. The magnetic anomaly commences one
kilometre due west of the centre of the 1.87 Moz Adumbi gold deposit,
and trends northwest, parallel to the Adumbi structure, for two
kilometres where it intersects the western limit of the Imbo Licence. 
The Company is also resuming exploration activities on the other
Somituri Project Exploitation Licences with the ultimate objective of
delineating drill targets.  
Alex van Hoeken, President and CEO of Kilo stated: "We are pleased
that our contractor was able to achieve rapid mobilization and
recommence operations only three days after the Company closed its 10
M C$ financing, and has been able to achieve production rates over 50
m per shift per drill. We look forward to receiving results during
the course of the year, as the high grades we have obtained from the
2012 campaign have been highly encouraging for our current strategy
of finding additional resources."  
In addition, the Company is pleased to announce the following results
from the 2012 drilling campaign at the Manzako Prospect. Figure 1, a
geological map of the Imbo Licence, illustrates these Prospects with
respect to the Adumbi gold deposit. 
MANZAKO  
Highlights Include 


 
--  7.60 m @ 3.91 g/t Au in hole #23 
--  Undercuts 11.20 m @ 4.96 g/t Au in hole #4 
--  Gold zone returned 31.70 m @ 4.96 g/t Au in trench #3 

 
This result is from drill hole SMDD0023 totalling 97.40 metres ("m")
which undercuts previously announced drill hole SMDD0004 that
intersected 11.20 m @ 4.96 g/t Au (see press release dated January
09, 2012). Drill hole SMDD0004 undercut a 31.70 metre long trench,
SMTR003, that returned 31.70 m @ 4.39 g/t Au, (see Press Release
dated June 30, 2011).  
These drill holes and trench targeted a parallel shear structure
about 300 m northeast of the 2.2 km long Manzako main shear zone
("MSZ") structure as defined by colonial-era mining, previous
trenches, soil sampling results and geological mapping. The Manzako
Prospect is 5.0 km east and south from, and parallel to, the
Company's 1.87 M oz Adumbi gold deposit.  
Gold intersections are listed in Table 1 and the drill hole is
illustrated on Figure 2.

Drill hole SMDD0023 targeted a gold bearing structure about 300 m to
the northeast of the main Manzako Shear Zone ("MSZ"). Chloritized,
sericitized and silicified mafic volcanic rocks, including pillowed
basalts were intersected. Gold occurs within an assemblage consisting
of quartz + carbonate + pyrite +/- pyrrhotite +/- arsenopyrite +/-
chalcopyrite. The relationship between the gold intersection in
SMDD0005 and the intersections on the section line with drill holes
SMDD0004 and 23 as well as trench SKTR003 has not been verified. 
The Manzako Prospect structure was mined by open pit and underground
methods to shallow depths during the Colonial era and select sites
are currently targeted by artisanal mining. 
About the Somituri Project 
The Somituri Project consists of eight Exploitation Licences
totalling 606 square kilometres in the Archaen Ngayu Greenstone belt,
in the north eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. 
According to historical records, unverified by the Company, the
Kitenge and Manzako mines produced about 100,000 ounces of gold to
1955, and Adumbi gold mine produced about 200,000 ounces of gold from
quartz vein ore that averaged 11 g/t gold during the 1940s until its
closure in 1959.  
The Mineral Corporation (April 2012), based in Johannesburg
calculated an NI 43-101 compliant inferred gold resource estimate of
1.87 million ounces grading 1.63 g/t Au using a 0.50 g/t Au cut-off
on the Adumbi Prospect. 
Quality Control and Analytical Procedures 
The drill core was sawn in half with a diamond saw and one half core
for each sample was placed into plastic bags and stapled shut.
Commercial standards and blanks were inserted in every batch of
samples submitted for analysis in accordance with industry practice.
Sample preparation was carried out at the Kilo on-site laboratory
managed by ALS Chemex. Sample pulps were shipped from the DRC to ALS
Chemex in Johannesburg, South Africa by commercial courier. Gold
analysis was determined on a 50 g charge by the Fire Assay with
Atomic Absorption finish method. ALS Chemiex is accredited to
international standards.
