Barisan Gold Intersects 290 Metres of 0.8g/t Gold + 0.5% Copper (1.0% Copper Equivalent) in Hole UTD-007 at Its Upper Tengkereng Discovery

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 -- Barisan Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE: BG) is pleased to announce the first tranche of assay results for hole UTD-007 at its Upper Tengkereng gold-copper porphyry discovery, located in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia.

Assays have been received from the first 800 metres of hole UTD-007. Hole UTD-007 was drilled with an azimuth of 220 degrees and an inclination of 87 degrees from a new drill platform located on the eastern edge of the first high-grade zone discovered at Upper Tengkereng. Hole UTD-007 was completed on July 9, 2014 at a final length of 1,185 metres.

As a result of being drilled from a platform sitting outside the mineralized intrusive, in a direction back towards the deposit, UTD-007 entered mineralization 292 metres from surface. From 292 to 800 metres, UTD-007 returned 508 metres of 0.7 g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.8% copper equivalent at current market prices), ranking it the second highest grade hole drilled to-date at Upper Tengkereng after hole UTD-008.

The high-grade chalcocite-chalcopyrite rich zone starts at the 510-metre mark and continues to the end of the assays received to-date. From 510 to 800 metres, UTD-007 returned 290 metres of 0.8 g/t gold + 0.5% copper (1.0% copper equivalent at current market prices). The high-grade mineralization remains open down hole at a depth below 800 metres with 144 metres towards the bottom of the intercept (from 644 to 788 metres) returning 0.9 g/t gold + 0.5% copper (1.1% copper equivalent at current market prices).

The initial objective of hole UTD-007 was to drill a vertical hole into the first high-grade zone discovered at Upper Tengkereng in an attempt to determine the true vertical width of that high-grade zone as well as determine how close to surface the high-grade zone actually begins. This objective was unfortunately not met as the location of the drill pad emerged too far east of the deposit and high-grade zone. As a result a new drill platform has been built, directly above the high-grade zone from which UTD-010 is currently being drilled to achieve the original objective of UTD-007.

Following completion of UTD-007, the rig was moved approximately 50 metres to the west to a newly built drill platform from which UTD-010 is currently being drilled (see updated maps and charts in the investor presentation on the Barisan Gold website). UTD-010 is being drilled at a 90 degree vertical angle. Drilling at hole UTD-009 began on July 16, 2014. As of July 21, 2014, UTD-010 had reach 198 metres in length and had not yet entered the high-grade zone.

Barisan Gold retained the laboratory services of PT Intertek Utama Services of Jakarta, Indonesia, which, in the case of UTD-007, employed the fire assay method (FA50) on gold samples and for other precious and base metal analyses, ICP with multi acid digestion.
