High Desert Gold Corporation Plans Aggressive Exploration Program at Gold Springs in 2013 and Increases Ownership in the Project to 82%

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 -- High Desert Gold Corporation ("HDG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HDG)(OTCQX:HDGCF) is pleased to report that The Company and its partner Pilot Gold Inc. ("Pilot"), have approved an aggressive exploration program at Gold Springs for this year that will comprise approximately 100 reverse circulation drill holes with a focus on expanding the resource at the Jumbo "trend" and adding a new resource at Grey Eagle.

This aggressive program increases the Company's interest in the property to 82% because Pilot has elected not to contribute financially to this program due to other priorities in their portfolio of properties.

Ralph Fitch, President and CEO of the Company, stated "We are very excited to move forward with an aggressive exploration program in 2013 with drilling expected to start in April and are pleased to have increased our ownership in Gold Springs, thereby providing our shareholders with increased exposure to the continuing success we are anticipating at the project."

The Company plans to announce the remaining drill results from the 2012 program within a few days, pending final analysis, and an updated resource on the Gold Springs Project based on the 2012 drilling results by the end of the 1st quarter, 2013.


The Company is a mineral exploration company that acquires and explores mineral properties, primarily gold, copper and silver, in North America. The principal property held by HDG is an 82% interest in the Gold Springs gold project situated along the border between Utah and Nevada. The Company also holds direct interests in a number of other properties including the San Antonio project in Sonora, Mexico, the Gold Lake property in New Mexico, and the Kinkaid and Pinyon properties in Nevada. The Company also has a 30.5% interest in the Canasta Dorada property in Sonora, Mexico, through its equity interest in Highvista Gold Inc.
