Angkor Gold Completes First Strategic Transaction: 78 Km2 Of Oyadao Licence In Cambodia Sold For USD $2.4 Million

Cambodia offers Angkor's shareholders an exciting advantage: Angkor acquired licences with strong histories of artisanal mining; Angkor's prospects are accessible, mineable and well-serviced; Angkor continues to explore efficiently, maximizing the low exploration costs. Cambodia has a stable, democratic government, a business-friendly environment, and strong infrastructure in place.

Angkor's midterm ambition is to self-finance its exploration activities. In Cambodia, Angkor intends to make a positive difference while rewarding its shareholders with strong value creation.

Solid progress has been made over the past 3 years. 24% of the company is owned by insiders, and the management team offers the right blend of technical and business experience

Mike Weeks, CEO & Chairman, further commented:

"2013 is going to be a very exciting year for Angkor Gold. We're intending shortly to release more details on our platform for 2013 including our expanded exploration program. Our Cambodian story will continue to gain momentum. Combined with our massive land package and project generation capabilities, it would be a mistake to overlook us as the newest frontier opportunity."

ANGKOR GOLD CORP. is a public company listed on the TSX-Venture exchange. It is Cambodia's premier gold explorer with a significantly large land package and a first-mover advantage with excellent relationships at all levels of Government (local to national).

Angkor has 5 exploration licences in the Kingdom of Cambodia now covering a total of 1102 km 2, plus 3 pending licence applications. The company has been actively exploring these concessions over the past 3 years, and has now covered all tenements with stream sediment geochemical sampling, has flown low level aeromagnetic surveys over much of the ground, drilled 17,556 metres of NQ core in 143 holes, of which 8,815m in 66 holes were drilled in the 2012 season; and has collected in excess of 20,000 'C' zone soil samples in 8 centres of interest, over a combined area of 20km 2, in addition to numerous trenches and detailed geological field mapping. Exploration on all tenements is ongoing.
