Kilo Goldmines Ltd.: Completion of Planned 2013 Somituri Project Drilling 
Programme and Appointment of an Independent Consultant for
Completion of A Maiden NI-43-101 Technical Report 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/13 -- Kilo Goldmines Ltd.
( "KGL" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KGL) (FRANKFURT:02K) is
pleased to announce that on August 6th, the Company completed its
planned 2013 drilling programme on the Somituri Project's Imbo
Licence. 
Highlights of the Company's 2013 programme on the Somituri Project
are summarised below: 


 
--  Total metres drilled: 
    --  Kitenge prospect (5,581 m): 
    --  Manzako prospect (3,158 m): 
    --  Senegal prospect ( 772 m): 
--  Appointment of Roscoe Postle Associates Inc (RPA) as an independent
    consultant

 
The 2013 exploration programme focused on resource definition
drilling on the Kitenge/Senegal and Manzako Prospects with the
objective of estimating a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource on one
or more of these Prospects illustrated on Figure 1. Since commencing
exploration on these Prospects in 2010, the Company has carried out
mapping, trenching, soil geochemical surveys, and an airborne
magnetic survey. 9,511 metres of drilling was completed in 2013 under
contract with Congo Core, based in Kinshasa, DRC.  
The Company contracted Young, Stuart & Associates Inc.,
Topographical, Engineering and Land Surveyors, of South Africa to
survey the diamond drill hole collars. 
For the delivery of the expected 2013 mineral resource estimate, the
Company has appointed international mining consultants RPA to
complete an independent NI 43-101-compliant Technical Report. The
company expects results to be forthcoming during Q4 2013. 
Alex van Hoeken, President and CEO of KGL stated: "Our exploration
teams and contractors have all worked diligently to achieve the 2013
programme on time and within budget. 
We look forward to updating our investors on the culmination of the
2010 to 2013 drilling programmes and the delivery of another resource
estimate on the Imbo Licence. The delivery of the aforementioned
estimate, along with the existing 1.87 Moz, 1.63 g/t (Au) estimate
for the Adumbi prospect, furthers our strategy of creating a large
scale, multi-pit mine on the Imbo licence." 
BACKGROUND 
The Company's 2013 drilling programme focused on the Manzako, Kitenge
and Senegal prospects located on the Company's Imbo licence. This
programme was an infill and extension of the 2010-2012 drilling
programmes over the same areas. In particular, the program was
designed to drill for a maiden resource in one or more of the
targeted areas, as per Figure 1. 
In the delivery of the aforementioned maiden resource (NI 43-101),
Roscoe Postle Associates (RPA) was appointed. RPA is a group of
technical professionals who have provided advice to the mining
industry for nearly 30 years, and is headquartered in Toronto,
Canada, with offices also in the United States and the United
Kingdom.  
Mrs. Deborah McCombe, RPA's President and CEO, was awarded the Robert
Elver Mineral Economics Award for her contributions to the
establishment of Canadian regulatory instrument NI 43-101 and her
efforts as head of CRIRSCO in the coordination of worldwide standards
for resource/reserve reporting. 
Mr Ian Blakley, VP and General Manager of RPA UK Ltd, visited the
Somituri project from June 19 to June 26.  
PROSPECTS 
KITENGE SHEAR ZONE  
Gold at Kitenge occurs with: quartz; carbonate; pyrite; pyrrhotite;
arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite in a northwest-southeast oriented
dominant shear zone hosting a continuous auriferous quartz vein that
dips about 80 degrees northeast, termed the Kitenge Shear Zone
("KSZ").  
Preliminary interpretation concludes that the KSZ is of the order of
75 m wide, bedding parallel to sub-parallel and characterized by
highly sericitized and silicified fine grained clastic
meta-sedimentary rocks. In addition, gold mineralization also occurs
in the footwall and hanging wall rocks of the KSZ. 
The 1600 m long KSZ is interpreted to be fault off-set from a major
shear zone structure. A series of interpreted faults has divided this
major shear zone into, from southeast to northwest the 1600 m
Kitenge, the 1500 m Senegal the 1000 m Canal, and the 1500 m Adumbi
Prospects. The 2000 m Adumbi West Prospect is also interpreted to be
fault off-set from the Adumbi Prospect. 
The Senegal Prospect is flanked to the immediate northeast by a
linear magnetic high. 
MANZAKO SHEAR 
Gold at Manzako occurs in association with quartz; carbonate; pyrite;
pyrrhotite; arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite in a number of parallel to
sub-parallel shear zones that trend northwest-southeast and dip about
65 to 80 degrees northeast. The geology is predominantly mafic
volcanic flows with local mafic intrusives. 
The Manzako Prospect structures were 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 comprises eight Exploitation Licences, covering
606 km2 of the Archaen Ngayu Greenstone belt in the northeastern
Democratic Republic of Congo. 
According to historical records, unverified by Kilo, the Kitenge and
Manzako mines produced approx. 100 000 oz of gold to 1955, whilst the
Adumbi gold mine produced approx. 200 000 oz 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 South
Africa, calculated an NI 43-101 compliant inferred gold resource
estimate for the Adumbi Prospect, one of a number targets drilled on
the Imbo Licence: The current inferred mineral resource for the
Adumbi Prospect, based on varying cut-off grades, includes:  


 
--  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.

 
QUALITY CONTROL AND ANALYTICAL PROCEDURES 
The drill core was sawn in half with a diamond saw and a half core of
each sample was placed into plastic bags and stapled shut. Commercial
standards and blanks have been 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 Minerals. Sample pulps were shipped from the DRC to ALS Minerals
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 Minerals is accredited to international
standards. 
Quality control of analytical results is monitored by Kilo with the
insertion of commercial standards and blanks in every batch of
samples submitted for analysis. For additional details the reader is
referred to Kilo's previously announced quality control and
analytical procedures (Press Release dated May 4, 2010). 
QUALIFIED PERSON 
The drilling program disclosed in this press release was planned and
supervised by the Company's geological consultant Stanley Robinson.
Stanley Robinson, M.Sc., P.Geo is also the 'qualified person' (as
that term is defined under National Instrument 43-101) of the Company
