Pilot Gold Files NI 43-101 Technical Report on Maiden Resource Estimate for the KCD Deposit, TV Tower

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- Pilot Gold Inc. (TSX: PLG) ("Pilot Gold" or the "Company") has filed a National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") technical report entitled "Independent Technical Report for the TV Tower Exploration Property, Canakkale, Western Turkey" (the "Report"), effective January 21, 2014 and dated February 20, 2014, on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Report relates principally to the independent resource estimate for the Kucukdag ("KCD") gold-silver-copper deposit at TV Tower in northwestern Turkey, announced on January 23, 2014. KCD is the first of several targets on the 91 km2 TV Tower property slated for intensive drilling, exploration and resource estimation.

The Report also covers exploration results from the 2013 program at TV Tower, including acquisition, exploration and drilling at the Karaayi and Kayali targets ("K2"). Karaayi and Kayali host a four kilometre-long zone of silicified volcaniclastic rocks hosting oxide gold, underlain by a blanket of supergene copper mineralization and what appears to be two or more areas of copper-gold porphyry alteration.

There are no material differences between the results announced in the January 23, 2014 news release and results contained in the Report. The Report has also been posted on the Company's website at www.pilotgold.com.

The Report was prepared by Casey M. Hetman, P.Geo. with SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc.; James N. Gray, P. Geo. of Advantage Geoservices Ltd.; and Gary Simmons, BSc, Metallurgical Engineering, of G L Simmons Consulting, LLC. Mr. Hetman, Mr. Gray and Mr. Simmons are independent of Pilot Gold and are "Qualified Persons" as defined by NI 43-101. Moira Smith, Ph.D., P.Geo., Chief Geologist, Pilot Gold, is the Company's designated Qualified Person for this news release within the meaning of NI 43-101 and has approved the scientific and technical information contained herein.

ABOUT TV TOWER

TV Tower is a joint venture between Pilot Gold (40%) and Teck Madencilik Sanayi Ticaret A.S. (60%), a Turkish subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited ("Teck"). Pilot Gold is project operator at TV Tower and can increase its interest in the project to 60%, through sole funding of exploration over a three-year period.

TV Tower is an early stage exploration project and, except for the mineral resources at the KCD deposit as summarized in the Report, does not contain any mineral resource estimates as defined by NI 43-101. The potential to define a mineral resource at the copper-gold K2 zone of TV Tower is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource thereat. It is uncertain if further exploration at K2 or other targets at TV Tower will yield a mineral resource.

ABOUT PILOT GOLD

Pilot Gold is a well-funded gold exploration company led by a proven technical team that continues to discover and define high-quality projects featuring strong grades, meaningful size and mining-friendly addresses. Our three key assets include interests in the TV Tower and Halilaga projects in Turkey and the Kinsley Mountain project in Nevada, each of which has the ability to become a foundational asset. We also have a pipeline of projects characterized by large land positions and district-wide potential that can meet our growth needs for years to come.

CAUTIONARY NOTE TO UNITED STATES INVESTORS CONCERNING ESTIMATES OF MEASURED, INDICATED AND INFERRED RESOURCES

Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied. The mineral resource estimates referenced in this press release use the terms "Indicated Mineral Resources" and "Inferred Mineral Resources". While these terms are defined in and required by Canadian regulations (under NI 43-101), these terms are not recognized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). "Inferred Mineral Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. The SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute SEC Industry Guide 7 compliant "reserves" as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. Pilot Gold is not an SEC registered company.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

All statements in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, are "forward-looking information" with respect to Pilot Gold within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including statements that address potential size and expansion of a mineralized zone and the timing of future resource estimates. Forward-looking information is often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "planned", "expect", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intends", "believe", "potential", and similar expressions, or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "should", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking information is based upon a number of assumptions of management, including among others, assumptions about future prices of gold, copper, silver and other metal prices, currency exchange rates and interest rates, favourable operating conditions, political stability, obtaining governmental approvals and financing on time, obtaining renewals for existing licences and permits and obtaining required licences and permits, labour stability, stability in market conditions, availability of equipment, accuracy of any mineral resources, successful resolution of disputes and anticipated costs and expenditures. Many assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Pilot Gold and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct.

Such forward-looking information, involves known and unknown risks, which may cause the actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including risks related to TV Tower, reliance on technical information provided by our joint venture partner or other third parties as related to TV Tower; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; current economic conditions; future prices of commodities; the costs and timing of exploration and development of new deposits; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; delays in permitting; satisfaction of Turkish requirements relating to the periodic submissions of Environmental Impact Assessments; possible claims against the Company or its joint venture partners; labour disputes; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing as well as those factors discussed in the Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2012, dated March 27, 2013 in the section entitled "Risk Factors", under Pilot Gold's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

Although Pilot Gold has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Pilot Gold disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise unless required by law.
