African Gold Group, Inc. Intercepts 9 Meters Of 25.8 G Au/T Mineralization Identified Over 5.5 Km Of Strike At Kobada, Mali

9 April 2008

African Gold Group, Inc.,  is pleased to report the assay results for 71 reverse circulation (“RC”) step-out drill holes, drilled on 9 lines covering a total of 5.5 kilometers of strike length at Kobada, Mali. These holes were drilled on a N30ºE orientation and are hypothesized to represent the potential strike extension, to the north and south of “Zone 1”.

STEP-OUT RC DRILL HIGHLIGHTS

  • KBRC7-5: 9 meters grading 25.8 g Au/t, including 1 meter of 228 g Au/t
  • KBRC7-6: 14 meters grading 3.66 g Au/t, including 9 meters of 4.61 g Au/t
  • KBRC7-8: 18 meters grading 1.78 g Au/t, including 7 meters of 3.59 g Au/t (ended in mineralization).
  • KBRC7-15: 22 meters grading 1.48 g Au/t, including 10 meters of 1.98 g Au/t

RESULTS AND ANALYSIS

For coherence, the results from the 71 RC drill holes have been organized according to the section the hole was drilled on as opposed to numerical order and are depicted in Table 1 below. All of the RC holes were drilled to a depth of approximately 90 meters (down the hole) at an angle of -55º and an azimuth of 290º. Please see the attached map for the collar locations and the respective section the holes were drilled on.

The ALS Chemex Laboratory in Bamako is used as the analytical facility for the Kobada Project. Reverse circulation (RC) samples were dried and crushed in their totality. A 500 gram split of the crushed sample, nominally at 3 mm was then pulverized to approximately 90% passing 75 µm (200 mesh). The coarse material was retained as crusher reject and stored in its original numbered sample bag. Approximately 200 grams of the pulp was retained in a sample packet. A 50 gram sample from the packet was analysed for gold by conventional fire assay with an instrumental AAS finish.

“We are most encouraged that this program of reconnaissance reverse circulation drilling, on a 400 meter to 800 meter sectional spacing, has identified gold mineralization over 5.5 km of strike length at Kobada, Mali. In particular, we note the very strong degree of gold mineralization intercepted on section L 1200 S. It is reasonable, at this point in time, to perceive this zone of mineralization as the potential extension of “Zone 1”. Furthermore, we note the presence of strong mineralization 800 meters to the north of L 1200 S on section L 400 S but will refrain from any conjecture regarding the spatial relationship of this mineralization, at this point in time. The purpose of this program was to intercept extensions or repetitions of Kobada’s productive structure to the north and south of “Zone 1” in as cost-effective a manner as possible. We are of the opinion that we have succeeded in demonstrating the pervasive and extensive nature of gold mineralization at Kobada and remain confident that we will build significantly on the recently announced Mineral Resources Estimate for “Zone 1”, which represents approximately 10% of the 12 km anomalous Kobada Trend, states AGG Chairman, Ben Adoo, C. Eng.

In a press release dated April 02, 2008, the Company released the initial 43-101 Mineral Resources estimate for Kobada, Mali, which was completed by Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited of Toronto (“WGM”), a well respected international consulting firm which has filled the role of AGG’s independent consultant since December, 2007. WGM estimates that “Zone 1” of the Kobada deposit, representing approximately 10% of the overall Kobada geochemical trend contains an Inferred Mineral Resource, as presently outlined, of between 450,000 ounces of gold and 740,000 ounces of gold as follows:
