Gowest Gold Granted Further Extension for Letter of Intent With Kidd Operations

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Gowest Gold Ltd. ("Gowest" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GWA)(OTCBB:GWSAF) reports that it has received a further extension of up to six months with regard to the previously announced non-binding Letter of Intent ("the LOI") the Company had entered into with Kidd Operations, located in Timmins, Ontario (see Gowest news releases dated May 29 and December 20, 2013). The plan is to refurbish the Division 'D' line of the mill at Kidd Operations to process Gowest's Bradshaw Gold Deposit ("Bradshaw") resources into a high-grade (+90 grams per tonne) gold concentrate. The proposed arrangement between the companies significantly reduces the cost and time to commercial production of Bradshaw. The LOI, which had been scheduled to be terminated on or before June 30, 2014, has now been extended to on or before December 31, 2014.

According to the terms of the LOI as requested by management of the Kidd Operations, Gowest has completed a detailed concept engineering study for the mill refurbishment and is now advancing detailed mine planning, site infrastructure engineering, the planned mill refurbishment as part of a pre-feasibility study as well as working on advanced underground exploration permit applications.

Highlights of the planned collaboration between Gowest and the Kidd Operations:

--  Utilizes excess capacity at the Kidd Operations mill, reducing overall
    milling costs and increasing revenue; 
--  Significantly reduces Gowest capital cost requirements by an estimated
    $107mm in avoiding the construction of a stand-alone facility ($60mm vs.
    $167mm)(i); and, 
--  Enables Gowest to begin commercial production 2-3 years earlier since a
    new mill would not have to be constructed.

Gowest President and CEO, Greg Romain, said, "Our recent financing success has provided further support for our goal of turning the Bradshaw Gold Deposit into the next new gold mine in the Timmins Camp." He added, "We continue to be very happy with the support and good relations we have with the Kidd Operations as well as their recognition of Bradshaw's potential to become an operating mine."

Qualified Person: This press release has been reviewed by Mr. Kevin Montgomery, P.Geo., Gowest's Manager of Exploration, and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
