Desert Gold Ventures Inc Signs Cooperation Agreement with Alecto Minerals to Develop the Farabantourou Gold Permit and Kossanto East Gold Project in Mali

Desert Gold Ventures Inc. announced that it has signed a cooperation agreement with Alecto Minerals and titleholder of the Alecto's Kossanto East Gold Project which neighbours Farabantourou Gold Permit with a view to jointly developing both deposits together into production. The collaboration with Alecto should enable both companies to benefit from shared knowledge, economies of scale and create shareholder value more quickly. Desert Gold has already filed an NI 43-101 compliant technical report for the Barani East deposit and it is natural that should now look at bulking up the tonnage with concomitant lower unit costs. The Agreement will allow both Desert Gold and Alecto to explore how capex can be reduced by operating together, with the ultimate goal of near term production. It has been agreed that all options should be reviewed; from the possibility of a single processing plant that processes ore from each deposit through to further corporate or project level activity. Both companies have drill intersections at other targets within the area of interest, which could each offer similar size resources and thus significantly increase the size of any joint venture project. It is important to note that within the same 10-km trucking radius, defined in Figure 1, there are further deposits with JORC or NI 43- 101 compliant mineral resource estimates completed. Alecto and Desert will continue to discuss with these companies with a view to expanding the cooperation concept and potentially open up a million ounce gold mining project. The exploration of the Farabantourou permit identified several zones of mineralisation of which the Barani East deposit became the focus for a fast track to exploitation. Geologically, the permit straddles the well-known Senegal-Mali-Shear-Zone (SMSZ) along which the Sadiola, Yatella and the Loulo-Gountoko mines are situated. The SMSZ is recognised as the principal geological feature controlling the mineralisation in West Mali. Minrealisation at BaraniEast is hosted in a fault/shear zone, proximal to the SMSZ. While the Barani East deposit is presently defined over a strike length of 400m, to a depth of 220m, the mineralisation is open ended at depth with potential for underground mining. The permit can be considered to have potential to produce additional significant resources. These were identified in the above mentioned NI 43-101 report: At Barani East there is potential to further define the resource by exploring along the strike extension of the fault, to the northeast, over a strike of approximately 3 km. At Keniegoulou the possibility of extending the target along strike to approximately 2 km exists. The first 14 lines of drilling all intersected mineralisation-a NNW trend is observed along an interpreted fault. At Dambamba it is possible to increase the overall target strike extent to 2.5 km to the south along the interpreted fault line as it is postulated. At Kousilli the current drilling in this area intersected mineralisation in only two of the four fence lines. However, if the drilling is overlain by the geochemical anomalies including the interpretation of the IP and resistivity surveys, two NE trending targets may be postulated. Kossanto East area is just one-third of the Kossanto Gold project and has been the area of most operational activity in the 2013/14 field season. The Company recently announced that it is discussions for a potential joint venture for the exploration of Kossanto West which is considered to be a potential multimillion ounce project to the west of Kossanto East. Alecto intersected high grade quartz veins in the 2014 drilling season. The Kossanto West project area is not currently included in this cooperation agreement due to its different geology and the fact that Alecto is currently in discussions with other parties. However, if a processing plant is developed at Kossanto East then ore from any resource defined at Kossanto West could be trucked to East with distances not exceeding 20-km.

Desert Gold Ventures Inc. Announces Results from Soil Geochemical Surveys on the Segala Ouest Tenement

Desert Gold Ventures Inc. announced results from soil geochemical surveys on the Segala Ouest tenement, which has now been completely covered by soil geochemistry. The results delineate a very large anomalous zone covering an area approximately 24 km2 in extent, with high assay values noted. The Segala Ouest prospect is situated in the middle of the gold mining district of Kenieba about 20 km NW of the town of Kenieba. Endeavour's Segala mine abuts the eastern boundary of the exploration permit and their Tabakoto mine is approximately 5 km away to the southeast. Some 15 km to the northwest are Randgold's Loulo-Gounkoto mine complex. The recently conducted soil geochemical survey, in which 2342 soil samples were collected by GeoActiv Pty Ltd. (a South African geological contracting and consulting company) and analysed by the ALS Chemex SA PTY Ltd. laboratory in South Africa, completes a blanket geochemical analysis of the exploration permit. The results delineate an 8 km long and 3 km wide corridor traversing the tenement in a northwesterly direction. The soil sample database comprises 6032 lognormally distributed Au Values with thresholds of 669 ppb, 204 ppb and 20 ppb, for the respective 1, 5 and 50 percentiles. There are significant artisanal mining activities focused in two areas: on the NW strike extension of Endeavour's Segala mine and in the southeastern part of the tenement nearby the village of Baroya. These mining sites target mineralised vein systems within the metasediment host rocks. Grab samples of the material being mined within the property were collected and assayed.

Desert Gold Ventures Inc. Commences Mining Feasibility Study on Barani East Project in Western Mali

Desert Gold Ventures Inc. recorded extensive metallurgical test work conducted on bulk mining samples from the recently drilled and sampled Barani East Gold Deposit indicates gold recoveries up to 85%. The company is currently engaged in a feasibility study to support fundraising for the development of a mine on the deposit. A two ton bulk sample of ore collected from the Barani east prospect was submitted to Peacocke Simpson & Associates (Pty) Ltd.'s minerals processing laboratory in Harare, Zimbabwe for bulk metallurgical work. The company has commissioned an engineering design team from Appropriate Process Technologies (Pty) Ltd. (Johannesburg, South Africa) for plant design. The latest tests indicate that a low capital cost plant comprising a wash and screen (2 mm) circuit, with minor crushing, feeding to a Knelson gravity concentrator will recover 40.3% of the gold. The tailings from the Knelson concentrator were fed to a Knelson continuous variable discharge concentrator (CVD) from which concentrates with a mass yield of approximately 11% were subjected to a cyanide leach, which resulted in an additional 25% of the gold to be recovered. Although this process, in aggregate, generates a lower recovery of the gold (65%) compared to other processing alternatives, this configuration requires the least capital investment, being some 80% cheaper than the alternative maximum recovery design plan, and having the lowest operating costs. Tailings with the unrecovered gold will be stockpiled as an asset for later re-treatment.
