True Gold Finds Extension of Nami Deposit, Intersects 29.5 g/t Gold Over 6.0 Metres

New drilling extends the Nami deposit by 250 metres to the north

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- True Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: TGM) ("True Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that step-out drilling at the Karma Gold Project's Nami deposit ("Nami") intersected 29.5 g/t gold over 6.0 metres and extended the deposit 250 metres north, along a corridor 150 metres wide. This previously untested extension has the potential to add an additional 50% to the strike length of the current Nami deposit outlined in the Feasibility Study. The deposit remains open for further expansion.

Holes RMB14RC-115 and RMB14RC-107 each intersected shallow, high-grade, oxidized gold mineralization at depths of less than 60 metres, including:


--  29.5 g/t Au over 6.0 metres, in RMB14RC-115, including
    --  44.08 g/t Au over 4.0 metres;

--  0.99 g/t Au over 12.0 metres, in RMB14RC-107.

"We strongly believe that this northern Nami extension will add to the overall resource at Nami in much the same way that North Kao has added to the Kao deposit," stated Scott Heffernan, Vice President, Exploration, of True Gold. "Ongoing exploration results like these continue to support our belief that the resource expansion potential at Karma is exceptional."

Gold mineralization at Nami exhibits the same intrusive-hosted, shallow-dipping structural style found within Kao and North Kao, Karma's two largest gold deposits, where continuity has been demonstrated over strike a length of 1.6 kilometres. North Kao was a blind discovery in 2013 and now has an inferred mineral resource of 1.66 million ounces (47.8 million tonnes at an average grade of 1.08 g/t gold; see March 13, 2014 news release). Like North Kao, the shallow dipping structures found at Nami can be drilled off rapidly for very low costs. Of note, oxide, transition and sulphide mineralization at Nami is all leachable, as per the Feasibility Study(1).

RC drilling around the periphery of the Nami deposit was designed to test the strike extents of the dominant structural controls as mapped by a recently completed 20 line-km gradient array IP and magnetic survey. To date, True Gold has completed 2,812 metres in 20 holes in the Nami area as part of the greater 2014 exploration program. True Gold will continue testing this Nami extension along strike.

True Gold's 2014 exploration program was launched in early May and is designed to both expand existing deposits and test new targets. Results from Nami are the first in a series of exploration updates we anticipate providing, as results become available. To date, we have completed approximately two thirds of a planned 15,000 metre combined core and RC drill program. In additional to drilling, 315 line-kilometres of IP and an extensive soil sampling program are also underway.

Qualified Persons

Scott Heffernan, M.Sc., P.Geo., and the Vice President, Exploration for the Company, is the designated Qualified Person for this news release within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") and has reviewed and verified that the technical information contained in this release is accurate and approves of the written disclosure of same. Holes were drilled at an azimuth of 45, 90 and 360 degrees and with dips of -60 at Nami. Drill intersections are reported as drilled thicknesses. True widths of the mineralized intervals are interpreted to be 50 to 90 percent of the reported lengths. Samples were submitted to ALS Chemex in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso for geochemical analysis for gold by fire assay of a 30-gram charge with an Atomic Absorption finish (AA). Samples with AA assays over 5.0 g/t were re-assayed by Fire Assay with gravimetric finish. Control samples (accredited standards, blanks and duplicate samples at the field and preparation stages) were inserted on a regular basis. Results were monitored on receipt of assays.

The potential quantity and grade of the Nami North target is conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain that further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
