Majestic Gold Corp. Shareholder Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Majestic Gold Corp. ("Majestic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: MJS)(FRANKFURT: A0BK1D) is pleased to announce an update on activity at the Company's Songjiagou Gold Mine ("Songjiagou") located in Shandong Province, China.

Majestic is working toward executing on a development scenario from the August 2013 SRK Consulting (China) Ltd. Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") that envisioned production of up to 7,400 tpd utilizing existing infrastructure. It has been determined that the other scenarios outlined in the SRK PEA are not attainable without significant capital investment and will therefore not be considered for the foreseeable future.

Majestic continues to work on the implementation of a grade control program, for which the Company has increased its mining personnel with the addition of mining engineers, surveyors, samplers, as well as adding several staff members to the onsite assay facility. The assay facility currently handles approximately 50 mill process samples per day and has an approximate daily processing capacity of 150 samples. It is expected that the additional staff will allow for additional daily blast hole samples to be prepped and assayed onsite. To that end, the Company is working with the drilling contractor to make final adjustments to the blast hole drills in order to collect samples from each of the blast holes.

The blast hole sampling forms the basis of the grade control program, assays from the blast holes will be immediately available during the loading cycle allowing lower grade material to be separated from the throughput to the mill and removed as waste. This is particularly crucial at Songjiagou as visually ore and waste are not discernibly discrete. The operation's mining contractor, Yantai Dahedong Processing Co. Ltd. has also identified a nearby waste disposal area allowing for the disposal of Songjiagou's waste material.

In addition, Majestic's operating subsidiary, Yantai Zhongjia Mining Co. Ltd. ("Zhongjia") has received preliminary government approval to expand the footprint of the open pit at Songjiagou to the boundaries of the Mining License, from 0.342 km2 to 0.594 km2. Zhongjia is working with the government through the approval process and anticipates receiving final approval during the next four to six months. In anticipation of receiving approval, aspects of the current mining activity are being directed toward readying the pit for the expansion.

The geological and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Stephen Kenwood, P. Geo., who is a qualified person under the definitions established by National Instrument 43-101.

Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling results and information concerning mineral resource estimates may also be deemed to be forward-looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when, and if, a project is actually developed.

Production Disclaimer

The Company's production decision was not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. The Company's production decision was made based on the open pit optimization resource model set out in the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"), which takes into account the relatively low mining costs negotiated by the Company. The pit optimization that was conducted in the preliminary assessment generated a production schedule summary at grade cut-off of 0.30 gram per tonne Au.

The PEA includes the inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the preliminary assessment will ever be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
