Augustine Ventures Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Augustine Ventures Inc. (CNSX:WAW) ("Augustine" or the "Company") has received an amended NI 43-101 Technical Report (the "Amended NI 43-101") by Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited ("WGM") on its Jubilee-Surluga Gold Property (the "Property") in Wawa, Ontario. The Amended NI 43-101 contains revised recommendations from WGM that the initial phase of work be directed at improving the resource estimate of the known mineralization which can be summarized below.

Phase One would best be accomplished by re-logging the available historical core stored at the Hawk Junction storage facility ($100,000), and then drilling the untested or poorly tested targets south and down dip of the Jubilee mine ($1.1 million). Following these programs, any new geological information could be interpreted into the model ($75,000) and the resource estimate should be updated ($25,000).

A second follow up phase of drilling of the Surluga deposit has been targeted to upgrade the quality of the existing resource estimate ($2.5 million). This is accompanied by a series of widespread drill programs ($1.8 million) to test areas that are known or suspected to be mineralized, accompanied by some trenching ($10,000) and geophysics ($50,000) to develop additional exploration targets.

The original NI 43-101 Technical Report dated October 25, 2011 included an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 32,269,000 tonnes at a grade of 1.14 g Au/t for the Surluga Gold Deposit, or "Jubilee Shear". The following table illustrates the resources at different cut-offs:

1.  Mineral Resources were estimated using an ordinary kriged block model. A
    grade capping factor of 200 g Au/t was applied. A base case lower cut-
    off grade of 0.2 g Au/t and a global specific gravity of 2.77 t/m3 is
    assumed. No deductions for mining recovery or otherwise were included in
    this estimate; 
2.  Mineral Resources were estimated using a three-year trailing average of
    US$960/ounce, and an exchange rate of US$0.90=C$1.00; 
3.  Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have
    demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of Mineral Resources may
    be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title,
    socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues; 
4.  The quantity and grade of reported Inferred Mineral Resources in this
    estimation are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient
    exploration to define these Inferred Resources as an Indicated or
    Measured Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration
    will result in upgrading them to an Indicated or Measured Mineral
    Resource category; 
5.  The Mineral Resources in this press release were estimated using the
    Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM
    Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines
    prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and
    adopted by CIM Council December 11, 2005. 

The Amended NI 43-101 can be viewed on the Company's website at www.augustineventures.com and on SEDAR.

In addition, Augustine has now received payment of all principal and interest amounts due to it under a secured promissory note from Delta Uranium Inc. ("Delta") dated June 20, 2012 for the principal amount of $306,415. The Company has now released Delta of all obligations in connection with the note.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.
