Xtra-Gold Resources Continues to Expand Gold Mineralization at Double 19 Kibi Gold Project …

James Longshore, President and CEO, remarked: “We are incredibly pleased with the continued success of our resource expansion drilling program at the Double 19 gold deposit.

Recent detailed 3D litho-structural modelling indicates that the Double 19 gold mineralization is emplaced within the inner arc of a tight, steep NE-plunging, isoclinally folded diorite body.

Undercut hole #KBDD21391 returned a mineralized intercept of 15.1 metres grading 1.24 g/t gold, including 2.56 g/t gold over 4.5 metres, from a down-hole depth of 200.0 metres; approximately 65 metres down-dip of the #KBDD21387 gold intercept.

Drill-fan pattern holes #KBDD21379 designed to test the down-dip extension of the NW Limb Zone, approximately 75 metres southwest of the aforementioned #KBDD21387 – #KBDD21391 section, returned mineralized intercepts of 13.2 metres grading 1.24 g/t gold and 19.0 metres grading 1.02 g/t gold from down-hole depths of 112.8 metres and 94.0 metres respectively; with the #KBDD21381 intercept located approximately 22 metres up-dip of the #KBDD21379 intercept.

At the recently identified Lone Tree shear structure located along the southeast flank of the Gatehouse Zone, hole #KBDD21380 consisting of an infill borehole designed to further define the geometry / attitude of the auriferous structure along the initial #KBDD20372 – #374 – #376 scout drill fence, returned a mineralized intercept of 16.6 metres grading 0.96 g/t gold, including 3.47 g/t gold over 3.0 metres, from a down-hole depth of 41 metres.

Geo, Vice President, Exploration for Xtra-Gold is acting as the Qualified Person in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 program to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of drill core, trench channel, and saw-cut channel samples, the details of which can be viewed on the Company’s website at www.xtragold.com.

Xtra-Gold is a gold exploration company with a substantial land position in the Kibi Gold Belt.

Xtra-Gold holds 5 Mining Leases totaling approximately 226 sq km maiden mineral resource estimate produced by Xtra-Gold in October 2012 represents first ever mineral resource generated on a lode gold project within the Kibi Gold Belt.
