Pure Gold Reports Q1 2014 Financial and Operating Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- Pure Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PGM) ("Pure Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its financial results and company highlights for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014 and provide an update on company activities at its Madsen Gold Project, Canada.

"During the quarter we further consolidated our Madsen Gold Project through the acquisition of the Newman-Madsen property, which provides additional exposure to prospective horizons along the 12 km-long Madsen Mine Trend," stated Darin Labrenz, Pure Gold President & CEO. "With our consolidated land position in the Red Lake district, and our strengthened Board and Management team in place, we are now focused on evaluating the results from our Phase 1 exploration program and initiating Phase 2, which will include 9,000 metres of drilling on high priority targets."

Financial and operational highlights through and subsequent to quarter end:


--  On June 24, 2014, the Company acquired a 100% interest in the Newman-
    Madsen Property from Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. for proceeds consisting
    of 6,500,000 common shares of the Company with a value of $2.8 million.
    The Newman-Madsen Property consists of 38 patented mining claims and is
    adjacent to the Company's Madsen Gold Property ("Madsen") in the
    prolific Red Lake gold camp. Newman-Madsen adds over 700 hectares of
    prospective ground to Madsen.

--  Following the successful acquisition of Madsen in March 2014, the
    Company has now begun a comprehensive exploration program at the
    project. The Company's current program will be split into two phases.
    Phase 1, now underway, is designed to better define drill-ready targets
    and generate new targets. Exploration crews have been mobilized to site
    and are re-logging and sampling drill core, compiling historic geologic
    data, conducting structural mapping, and interpreting a new airborne
    magnetic geophysical survey. Phase 2 will commence in mid-August and is
    anticipated to include a 9,000 metre drill program designed to test the
    initial targets generated in Phase 1.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company incurred a loss of $1.6 million compared to a loss of $0.1 million for the same period in 2013.

Share based compensation expense increased significantly for the three months ended June 30, 2014 to $0.6 million compared to $2,068 for the same period in 2013 reflecting an option grant to directors and employees during the period compared to no option grants for the same period in the prior year.

Exploration and evaluation expenditures totalled $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2,549 for the same period in 2013. The Company expenses exploration and evaluation expenditures as incurred. The increased expense for the three months ended June 30, 2014 is reflective of the commencement of the Phase 1 exploration program at Madsen which was acquired in March 2014. For the same period in 2013, there was minimal activity at the Company's mineral projects.

Wages, consulting and director fees increased by $0.1 million from $93,296 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The change was largely due to an increase in payroll and consulting fees as the Company ramped up activities following the acquisition of Madsen in March 2014. New staff has been hired to build out the team to manage the increased activity levels within the Company. In 2013, activity levels were minimized as the Company focussed its efforts on acquiring a new transformative project.

Investor relations and communication increased by $0.1 million from $nil for the three months ended June 30, 2013 to $0.1 million for the same period in 2014. The increase in investor relations and communication for the current period is due to the Company incurring costs with respect to the Company's name change, developing a new brand name, brand signature, approach and foundation to reposition and build the long-term brand equity of the Company. In 2013, activity levels were minimized as the Company focussed its efforts on acquiring a new transformative project.

Office and rent expense increased by $53,318 from $21,578 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 to $74,896 for the same period in 2014. The Company moved to a new office in March of 2014 to accommodate the increased staffing levels required for the Madsen project resulting in an increase in office costs incurred.

Total assets increased by $1.7 million as at June 30, 2014 in comparison to March 31, 2014 due to the successful acquisition of the Newman-Madsen property for $2.8 million. The total assets acquired were offset by operating expenditures totalling $1.0 million and investing expenditures of $0.1 million, both of which reduced cash on the balance sheet.

At June 30, 2014, our current liabilities comprise (i) trade accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $0.5 million (March 31, 2014 - $0.5 million) (ii) mineral property funding obligations related to our Antofagasta Alliance Agreement of $9,123 (March 31, 2014 - $0.1 million) and (iii) other liabilities of $2.5 million (March 31, 2014 - $2.5 million) which consists of the final payment to Claude for Madsen.

At June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014, our non-current liabilities consist of a provision for closure and reclamation costs with respect to future reclamation work to be performed on our Madsen Gold Project totaling $2.4 million.
