Roxgold Announces Commencement Of A 1,600 Metre Follow Up Drilling Program At Bagassi South

TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Roxgold Inc. ("Roxgold" or "the Company") (TSXV: ROG) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 1,600 metre diamond drilling program on the  Bagassi South target at its 100% owned Yaramoko permit located on the Houndé Greenstone Belt in Burkina Faso. This drilling will be conducted by Falcon Drilling Burkina Faso and will follow up on existing results announced by the Company on July 09, 2013.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Identification of new mineralized zone north of existing Bagassi South drilling
  • Target co-incident with 250 metre long IP resistivity anomaly
  • Previously announced initial drill results* intersected high grade gold mineralization including:
    • 41.70 grams per tonne ("gpt") gold over 4.4 metres in drill hole YRM-KD-BG-15
    • 24.95 gpt gold over 3.8 metres in drill hole YRM-KD-BG-11

* Please refer to the Company's disclosure in its July 09, 2013 press release for more details.

This drill program is intended to test the down dip potential of this target at Bagassi South. Previous results on this target indicate that the mineralization remains open below existing drilling and along strike. The program will consist of six NQ sized diamond drill holes drilled to a maximum depth of approximately 300 metres.

"We are encouraged by the early success at this target," stated John Dorward, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are hopeful that this program will continue to build upon the success of the last program as we continue in our endeavour to locate and define further potential mineralized zones on the Yaramoko Permit."
