Kilo Goldmines Ltd. ("Kilo" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) is pleased to announce results and
interpretation of the reconnaissance soil geochemical surveys on the
Boroda, Gambi, Dhahabu and Mpaka Exploitation Licences of the
Somituri Project. Gold geochemistry anomalies that warrant evaluation
through detailed soil geochemical surveys have been delineated on all
licences surveyed. An in-fill soil geochemical survey is in progress
to further define previously announced (August 13, 2012) gold in soil
anomalies delineated by reconnaissance sampling on the Ngazi Licence. 
SOMITURI PROJECT GEOLOGY 
The five licences of the Somituri projected reported on herein,
namely Boroda, Gambi, Dhahabu Mpaka, and Ngazi are all within the
Archaean Ngayu Greenstone Belt, as illustrated on Figure 1. These
licences are predominantly underlain with Upper Kabalian
metasedimentary rocks, including Banded Iron Formation ("BIF"); mafic
volcanics occur locally. The eastern portion of the Mpaka licence is
underlain with a granitic intrusive and minor basement orthogneiss. 
Gold mineralization on the Somituri Project is shear zone hosted
within all lithological units. Within the shear zones the gold
mineralization typically has steep plunging 'high grade shoots.'
Thus, it follows that the surface gold-in-soil geochemical expression
can be very restricted, particularly in flat terrain where there is
minimal lateral dispersion of the soil. In-situ gold mineralization
has been intersected beneath a single sample high gold value on the
Senegal Prospect of the Imbo Licence. Hence, an explanation for all
anomalous gold values obtained in soil samples must be determined. 
BORODA GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY 
Elevated contoured gold values, on the Boroda Licence, illustrates a
five kilometre long northeast trending zone of elevated gold-in-soil
values has been delineated across the central portion of the licence.
Near the southwest limit of this zone of elevated gold values there
is a 600 m long gold anomaly with values up to 478 parts per billion
("ppb") gold ("Au"). Truncated by the northern property boundary is a
400 m long gold-in-soil anomaly that adjoins a high Bulk Leach
Extractable Gold ("BLEG") anomaly on the Loncor Resources Inc.,
property (Loncor corporate presentation, September 2012). In addition
several other isolated gold anomalies were delineated. The geological
map does not indicate the presence of BIF on the Boroda Licence,
however some soil samples contained BIF fragments.  
Detailed in-fill soil sampling is planned to further evaluate the
gold geochemical anomalies delineated on the Boroda Licence. 
GAMBI GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY 
Several elevated north trending zones of elevated gold values are
illustrated by the contoured gold results on Figure 3. Anomalous gold
values up to 80 ppb within the westernmost zone of elevated gold
values overlies the BIF unit illustrated on the geological map in
Figure 1. Loncor Resources Inc., delineated an elevated BLEG anomaly
that strikes through the northwestern corner of the Gambi Licence
(Loncor corporate presentation, September 2012). 
Detailed in-fill soil sampling is planned to further evaluate the
gold geochemical anomalies delineated on the Gambi Licence. 
DHAHABU GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY 
The Dhahabu Licence is located about 6 km northeast of the Yindi gold
mine that operated during the colonial-era. Reconnaissance soil
geochemical survey has been completed over the southern block of this
licence and active artisanal workings were observed. Contoured gold
values, illustrated in Figure 4, have delineated several areas with
elevated gold values; anomalous gold values up to 158 ppb occur
within each of these areas. A 500 m long gold-in-soil anomaly
discovered at the southwest corner of the Dhahabu licence adjouns a
high BLEG anomaly delineated by Loncor Resources Inc., (Loncor
corporate presentation, September 2012).  
Reconnaissance soil sampling over the un-sampled portion of the
licence is planned prior to follow-up sampling on the delineated
anomalies. 
MPAKA GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY 
Reconaissance soil geochemical survey was carried out north of the
Ngayu River over the western portion of the Mpaka Licence. Contoured
gold values illustrated in Figure 5 indicate that several areas of
elevated gold values were delineated. Anomalous gold values up to 184
ppb occur within some of the areas delineated with elevated gold
values.  
The eastern half of the licence is indicated on the 1980, 1:200,000
Bafwasende geological map to be underlain by a large granitic
intrusive, in contact with Upper Kibalian lithologies of the Archaean
Ngayu greenstone belt to the west. Historical reports reviewed by the
company are silent on gold production from Mpaka Licence. Given that
gold mineralization occurs in close proximity to granitic intrusions,
reconnaissance soil geochemical surveying over the margins of the
granitic intrusive is planned prior to follow-up on the delineated
anomalies. 
Alex van Hoeken, President and CEO of Kilo, today stated: 
"The delineation of gold geochemical anomalies on all licences
covered with reconnaissance scale geochemical soil surveys is
encouraging and further confirms the exploration methodology is an
effective first phase in a systematic approach. Gold values up to
0.48 g/t for soil geochemistry samples on the Borada Licence
overlying BIF is particularly encouraging given the area ties onto
known BLEG anomalies and lacks evidence of previous exploitation. The
on-going reconnaissance soil geochemical surveys followed by in-fill
detailed sampling are expected to result in the delineation of
targets that will require evaluation by drilling."  
NAGAZI GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY 
Approximately 4000 in-fill soil samples at a spacing of 80 m x 40 m
have been collected since late April 2013 over the northern portion
of the Ngazi Licence to better define the gold anomalies delineated
by 2310 reconnaissance scale soil samples (see press release dated
August 13, 2012). 
SOIL SAMPLING PROCEDURES 
Sample collection: The soil samples were collected at a depth of
approximately 30 cm in flat topographic areas and from an approximate
60 cm depth on hill slopes. The reconnaissance scale sampling was
carried out at 100 m intervals on lines 400 m apart. In-fill follow
up sampling was carried out at 40 m intervals on lines 80 m apart.
Sample sites were located by GPS and coordinates were recorded for
each site. Approximately 2 kg of material present at the depth
sampled was collected and placed into a plastic bag together with a
pre-numbered sample tag and the bag was stapled shut. 
Determination of anomalous gold values: Statistical analysis of the
gold geochemical values obtained on each of the Exploitation Licences
was carried out to determine the anomalous gold threshold value
defined as the sample population mean plus two times the sample
population standard deviation as summarized in Table 1.

ABOUT THE SOMITURI PROJECT 
The Somituri Project comprises eight Exploitation Licences, covering
606 km2, valid until 2039, of the Archaean Ngayu Greenstone belt in
the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo. 
According to historical records, which have not been verified by
Kilo, the Kitenge and Manzako mines produced approximately 100 000 oz
of gold to 1955, whilst the Adumbi/Bagbaie gold mines produced
approximately 200 000 oz of gold, from quartz vein ore that averaged
11 g/t gold, during the 1950s until its closure in 1959. 
The Imbo Licence hosts a number of gold bearing prospects, some of
which are currently being drilled. Adumbi Prospect is the most
advanced Prospect on the Imbo Licence with an NI 43-101 compliant
inferred resource estimate as follows: 


 
--  1.87 Moz grading 1.63 g/t Au at a 0.50 g/t cut-off grade. 
--  1.63 Moz grading 2.04 g/t Au at a 1.0 g/t cut-off grade

 
The resource estimate was calculated in April 2012 by The Mineral
Corporation based in Johannesburg South Africa.  
QUALITY CONTROL AND ANALYTICAL PROCEDURES 
Sample preparation consisted initially of sorting the samples into
numerical sequential order, followed by drying, crushing and
pulverizing of the entire sample. The 2010 and 2011 soil samples were
shipped, by commercial carrier, to ALS Minerals sample preparation
laboratory in Mwanza, Tanzania. Preparation of the 2012 samples was
carried out at the Kilo owned, ALS Minerals managed and operated,
Somituri Project exploration camp on-site laboratory. Sample pulps
were couriered to ALS Minerals full service laboratory in
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa from Mwanza during 2010 and 2011
and from the Democratic Republic of Congo during 2012. Gold was
determined on a 30 g charge by the Fire Assay with ICP finish method.
In addition, multi-element analysis was carried out by the ICP
method. ALS Minerals is accredited to international standards. 
Analytical quality control was monitored by Kilo with the insertion
of approximately 9% quality control samples consisting of duplicates
as well as commercial blank and standards in every batch of samples
submitted for analysis.
